2 game suspension for a clean hit? Good call Shanny. You're really doing a bang up job there.

And the NHL does it again, suspending because of the result instead of the act.

A clean hit gone bad due to a suicide pass, a two game suspension is a joke.

Not every hard hit is a dirty hit. It was without a doubt, a clean hit.

I'm completely shocked he got 2 games, wow.

Well, If this was indeed a bad hit then it deserves 20 not 2

The Ference hit was a clear shot to the head, he didnt even try to hit him with the body and he got 1 game. This was a clean hit and Gryba gets 2. They are fracking all over the place with these suspensions.

And Ference only gets one... Once again, Shanny continues to tarnish his lustrous playing career with all these biased, and idiotic suspensions (or lack of).

So I guess this is the checklist for what's a suspension.
  • Illegal check
  • Injury on the play

I honestly have no idea how they reach these decisions. Its as if they put a bunch of random numbers in a hat and pick one out. I honestly didn't believe that hit was suspendable...Don't get me wrong I feel horrible for Eller but it was a suicide pass and it was a clean hit IMO.

That's exactly it. It's a clean hit. If Eller wasn't hurt. We wouldn't even be talking about this right now

Stupid decision by the league. I guess the only thing that might be said is that Eller was in a vulnerable position but the hit was still clean so WTF Shanny.

Stretcher >>>>>>>>> Reason


Based on the rules from the past, people seem to point to this as a suicide pass and say it's a clean hit. However, I believe players should have more respect for each other and shouldn't do this when they know a player is in such a vulnerable position.

It's borderline disgusting that a young player who stepped up physically against an opponent in a clean manner, respecting the rules of the NHL has been suspended by the NHL for two games.

It's a crime and the only blessing in disguise is the player doesn't have to deal with Prust or someone taking liberties on him in tonight's game, although I am sure he'd answer the bell.

It's easy to scratch your head at what's coming out of Shanahan's office and I can imagine it is an unforgiving and difficult job to giveout the punishment, but there is reason to belive a criteria can be followed and on a case by case situation a resolution can come from these incidents. It blows my mind that there is so much inconsistency here.

I honestly think the majority of the damage happened when he slammed his face onto the ice (as opposed to the contact to the head via hit).

Surprised? Not at all.

Continuing disappointment and frustration with NHL officiating and supplementary discipline? Absolutely!

Terrible decision. In my opinion these ''decisions'' are mainly due to watching things in slow motion. The game is played very, very fast and looking at it in slow motion just distorts things rather than clarifies them. e.g. you often hear comments like ''at the very last second he did this or that'' when there's no time for people to make a decision to do that in 1/100th of a second.
- added to the confusion is the fact players sometimes make involuntary movements near the time of impact; i.e. the mind decides to make a hit, and then at the last possible second the brain tries to avoid or minimize the impact. (Like to hear a player's view.)

Gryba's hit was more respectable than the Ference hit. Gryba's hit just had the more unfortunate result.

Not exactly sure where you are from but there is nothing in the rule book against that hit.

Bad first post BTW. Hopefully this isn't indicative of your hockey knowledge.
