He was no more injured than Henrik.

It's hardly ancient history...And it is important because it shows a lack of consistency with the rules, implying there's different rules for different teams.

Of course there are different teams:

- Bettman's teams

- Peasant teams who only exist to feed & help Bettman's teams win

...and Winnepeg and Quebec City lost their teams to non hockey markets while Edmonton and, yes, even the Canucks were rumoured to be on the move not so long ago. An all Canadian pro league would be a financial disaster; it would be like Eric Lindros all over again times 1000. All the young star players would go where the money is and Canada isn't that place.

Not even close to the same as in the past. These teams weren't owned by billionaires with very deep pockets back then.

The liklihood of that happening again is close to zero. There's lots of markets in the US that are very close to that happening to though. The US teams would likely contract in half if the Canadian teams left the NHL. There would be just as much money in Canada.

Your theories and presumptions are just not holding up here.

Vancouver was rumoured to be on the move in 1992-93. Nearly 20 years ago. 

And those same rumours plagued Chicago, Pittsburgh, LA and other teams when they were sucking wind. 

Your use of absolutes to prove your point is not working. Just sayin'

If Henrik stays down for even one minute, that's a one-game suspension. How many times have the Sedins' durability and refusal to stay down helped opposing players avoid penalties and suspensions? Nothing but respect here.

I'm beyond angry with the NHL in general after this.......

 

No penalty, No fine, No Suspension...

Flying elbow head shot... 

Primary point of contact: Face

this is BS any other team this would be a suspension. If Edler did that to name any other captain in the league he'd be suspended instantly.

complete crap, I don't care if it wasn't on purpose it was reckless and could have hurt him badly. And hits exactly like this have all been suspension worthy the past couple seasons.

just a pile of horse crap

They show the game respect, they show the refs respect, they show opponents respect, they show the fans respect, they show everyone respect.

respects a two way street it would be nice if the other side of the damn street would start giving it where it's long overdue.

NHL has to be careful here if they continue to be incompetent in regarding to a fair play, different rules for different teams will backfire.   If the NHL continues to ignore this type of play like McNabb's elbow which got to Henrik's face. What if the same action of hit and impact caused concussion and even if Henrik wasn't hurt yesterday, then what?  How do you then eliminate this type of action. If the NHL is serious about eliminating the head hit then it must show some type of constant disciplinary supplement.to every team that committed the offense.then we as the fan will be supportive to the league. The purpose of the supplement punishment is to reduce a reckless hits, even the elbow toward the head as a principle point of the hit.  If the league continue to show two different rules then you'd have backlash from teams sooner or later.   If the player is traded to a team that is despite by the head office and start to dish out the punishment and delivered the same type of hit and got suspension, that would confuse the players, don't you think?  You can't keep doing this to favor one team and give no favor to other teams and expect a warm reception from the ownership level.   Sooner or later, there will be investigation if there is even a suspicion of any ounce of corruption within the league head office if there are some kind of inconstant

In fact, I did some checking on history of suspension list, the LA players was suspended twice by the league since 2011-12 season overall for the total of 3 games, that was Nolan and Brown.  No other suspension was dished out to LA since 2011 season.  Most of the action were fines but no suspension.  Voynov's suspension do not count as it is not related to game-related suspension.   I do not count fines but even with fines, it is so few compared to other teams since 2011-12 season.   This reeks favorism.    Something is going on over there.

You, like many here, seem to think that all the teams should have the same number of fines and suspensions or else there is favouritism to the ones that have fewer than others. That's not how it works.

Shocker coming from this league.

The NHL has declined so much in on ice quality over the years. Very rarely do I sit through even one period of a game not involving the Canucks. The games are boring and the refs manage every game. The players are overpaid. Its a dying league. I would never shell out what they demand to attend a game for the terrible product they put out.

I will continue watching Canucks games because I am a lifelong fan if the TEAM, unless they start to charge to watch the games in TV and that that point....see ya

Great job during YOUR watch Gary

 

Real talk.

Well, I seem to recall a blatant hit by behind to Burrows on a game against LA without any supplement disciplinary from the DoPS and one hit yesterday which warrants a game suspension and/or fines at most.   Who can forget 5 on 3 powerplay for 7 minutes in favor of LA?   That's truly suspicion, don't you think?   It is not about us whining, it's about how the league is treating the issues on many things such like head shots or players safety.  If it were not for Edler's suspension for a hit on Hertl that did not deserve any suspension in the first place, we would sweep this under the bridge even after yesterday's event.   Burrows hit on Emelin, or how about Rome hit that were let go by the league in the past slapped with the suspension in SCF and many other tad late hits similar to Rome's hit since then did not warrant anything since then?  If this did not happen then we would not be complaining by now?  It's called double standard by the league.   Just because we have Burrows which is despised by everybody else would affect their perception of how they are handing out suspension, even a unbiased people.  It is easy to target a team that is despised by media, fans. If this same action hit to Sedin happened to Towes, the media would be all over it.

You are probably right and, yes, good on Hank for bouncing back up and getting involved in the game rather than lying there trying to draw a penalty. Full on respect from this quarter.

If you actually saw the play where Sestito suckered Nolan off the face off  and then pounded him without Nolan even getting his gloves off you would realize that it's two minutes for instigating and 5 for fighting. That's 7 minutes and to boot we did it twice in a week. Complaining about it is whining, especially in the context of pretending to be worried about "player safety".  Saying that Nolan deserved it for attempting a hit on a Sedin is also whining.

This is an absolute joke. Come on, how can someone look at that hit and not give McNabb something? A fine? a suspension? NOTHING. They think the hit is clean. CLEAN. In what world is that hit clean. Elbow straight to the head, Henrik should've pulled a Bruin and stayed down pretending to be injured, works for them and for everyone else apparently. NHL probably thought, "Oh Henrik got up right away, and played the rest of the game. No suspension needed for the hit to the head." That sounds so ridiculous, but that's probably what happened. 

I want to throw something to the wall I'm so mad. He's the leader of the damn team, and he's getting tossed around like a ball. Its infuriating.

but ZERO for this ?

how can u say NHL Player Safety isn't a total crooked freaking farce ?

this leagues head office and the parasite at the very top need to be gassed.

Canadian hockey fans are sodomized in most markets and suckers paying thru the a$$ to watch basically WWE style theatre hosted on "un-kosher" tilted ice.

Not even joking, I think any players who suffer from head injury related issues down the road after getting hit in the head without discipline from the NHL should sue. It's one thing to say it's a dangerous sport, player beware and another to basically say the rules intended to help protect players don't apply evenly to all players. If some players get more protection because players know dirty hits on them will get supplimentary discipline then the NHL is knowingly and actively creating a more dangerous work environment for the players, like Hank, who aren't protected by a fair application of the rules.

Even after all this is said and done I'm proud to say we have Henrik 'Warrior' Sedin as our Captain. Wouldn't change him for anyone in the NHL, in my opinion he's an example for all players across the league. :)

This. He's already over this. Nu?
