Brendan Shanahan, you are nothing more than Gary Bettman’s bitch. You’ve sold out to The Agenda and you’re wrapped in a soiled nighty made of hypocrisy.
How do you spew the wholesome all year? How do you get in front of the cameras where you’ve always pined to be and literally claim that head shots are the number 1 priority of your office…and then fine Shea Weber $2,500 for what he did, with two hands, to Hank Zetterberg’s head?
When Shanahan was directed by the midget commissioner, the absolute worst in all of sports, to swallow hard and continue the Anti-Wing campaign Bettman’s soaped himself in for more than a decade, he should have quit. He knew it. We know it. Everyone in hockey (fans, writers, execs) all know it: this decision was as laughable as it was predictable.
You’re nothing more than an establishment tool, Shanny. Once the guy “who saved hockey” with the way you changed the game and helped end Bettman’s lockout, you are now just another ball-in-the-mouth bitch of Lil Gary, with his fake hockey towns and his fake hockey loyalty.
And here we are, every one of us. Bitching about it like we’re shocked. Spitting and sputtering…just beside ourselves that the Wings have been screwed again.
We’re worse than Shanahan and Bettman. They’re insidious. We’re just dumb for sticking around.
Once again, for the hundredth time, I’m embarrassed to be a hockey fan.
Shanahan, you frigging toad. When that little gimp told you a suspension just wouldn’t do? You should have slapped him with an open hand, walked out and gone straight to the first microphone you saw. You should have said you’d been directed to levy a fine when a suspension was the only decision consistent with what you’ve done all year. You should have quit. Your credibility is lower than his now.
Oh, you don’t think Bettman whispered in Shanny’s ear? You don’t think this was discussed down at Gary’s 4-foot level? Bitch, please. This was all Bettman. Shanny’s nothing more than the dirty-mouthed spokesman who made the announcement. Shanny’s Fredo Corleone. No power. No singular thought. No respect.
Strong work, Shanny. Strong work. You sold your soul to a dwarf laughing stock.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
