Couldn't find a thread on this yet. (Using my iPhone though)

Any word on further discipline (actually any) on his elbow during the Kings-Minny game?

Brown will indeed have a hearing today.

The Puck Daddy article for those interested.

Looks to me like Brown waits a little for Pominville to get within the motion of his elbow in order to coldclock him. Sneaky and dirty in my opinion.

2 games, enough for a quick breather before the playoffs.

I had to sign in for this.

What a dirty piece of sh!t. Both of those hits (vs Roussel and thios one vs Pominville) are perfect examples of what this joker pulls all the time. That this is the first hearing is truly amazing.

Ugh, this leagues discipline and officiating are such piles of crap.

Boggles the frack out of me how Brown didn't sit any games for that hit on Roussel. Clearly the point of contact is the head, and it's blind-side. The frack? What you doin' Shanny?

The hit on Pominville is a ???? elbow, no doubt about it.


This league's discipline is a joke.

Should be a 5er, but in reality he won't even get fined. League discipline has no consistency or standards.

Anyone remember when one of the Sedins got ran at in the Chicago game? If he hadnt ducked, that hit would of went straight to his head and leveled him. Surprised nobody brought that up.

He'll get a rest before playoffs at the most.

Back to back games he made a dirty hit.He does it a lot more than people realize

He knew exactly what he was doing there. I hate how some guys who throw big hits (Brown, Phaneuf, Clutterbuck) can be such pussies when it comes to having to actually take a hit.

I remember Phaneuf running around the ice like a headless chicken any time he got bumped by a Canuck.

Shiznak at his best: 

Considering their cap hit and age, I'd still take Bonino over Kesler.

Sneaky little elbow. I think it definitely deserves something - it's a headshot straight up.

However, I doubt Shanaban is feeling the pressure on this one. They didn't even have a video of the incident on the NHL.com article about it. Can't let the Kings look bad I guess. He'll get a 2 game wrist-slapper at most.

tried to reverse hit like edler does, but he "forgot" to keep his elbow tucked that is a pretty wicked headshot.

I've seen Brown do at least half a dozen worse elbows without getting suspended and I don't watch the Kings much. Sure its a dirty hit and completely intentional but I can't see why they would pick that one to suspend. Someone should put together a highlight video of dirty hits by Dustin Brown this season, it would probably run 8 to 10 minutes.

Wouldn't of mattered if anyone brought it up. When was the last time someone got suspended when noone got injured? Should of been a suspension if the NHL would discipline the act and not the aftermath

Huge part of the problem right now. Ever since the 2011 playoffs suspensions have been doled out depending on:

1. Injury.
2. Media attention.
3. Teams involved.

The actual play on the ice hardly matters anymore. Shanaban just whips up a 1 min clip where he drones on about intent/injury or whatever spins the incident to his point, and casual fans just eat it up.

Commentary people in that vid are retarded. Cold shoulder, cold shoulder, I think he hits him with his shoulder...

It shows like ten times his elbow connecting with the face.

Shanny - " nope"

Meh. Players still need to play smart and avoid putting themselves in bad positions and Pominville practically ran his own face into that.

I only have an issue if the striking player elevates his elbow to head level or hits someone already down. Stretching out and and lowerering your head is risky and always puts the head in line to get hit first. What Brown did happens probably every game but players typically take the body and then go for the puck instead of sprawing forward in as they barrell into the player with the puck.

lol no playoff games missed. just as I thought

The Canucks should have had their players take runs at the Blues players in the April 16th game.
Potential first round matchup, a nice little rest for some of our players during suspension, whats not to like?

Didn't Hansen get 2 games for an accidental elbow?

Brown gets 2 games for a clear intentional elbow?

Okay.

That's very fair. Hansen is basically a mix between Sean Avery and Satan. He deserved that 2 game suspension. :rolleyes:

I thought he got 2 as well but when I checked, it was just 1 game?

Regardless, this was much more viscous than Hansen swiping at the puck with his hand...

Until Brendan Shanahan gets his head out of his a$s, players will suffer for the inconsistency coming out of the poorly titled Department of Player Safety.

The clear bias and preference for star players in this league is sickening and embarrassing when compared to other sports leagues.

The fact that both the officiating (league wide) has been at an all time low clearly shows that the players safety is nowhere near a priority and that a change will probably only be introduced with a career ending injury.

Let's hope a life doesn't have to be lost.

I think Shanahan is just a puppet and the real decisions are made based on consequences to league wide revenue.
I would have a lot more respect if it was 3 games - 2 reg season games and game 1 of playoffs

THAT would have been fair.

and then Rome gets 4 games in the SCF lol...what a joke
