Stupid is no longer allowed in the NHL.  Philly and Anaheim are in trouble.

I like the fact that he takes the time to explain his decisions.

Wonder how he would have ruled the Malkin ‘Fight’ in the 09 Finals?

Shanny is not messing around, these guys better learn quick.  They should have a sheriffs badge made for him.

How does this suspension work if Jean-Francois Jacques does not make the team?

If called up in the future, he would have to sit the first five games.

I am starting to develop a serious man-crush on the man they call Shannahan. This is fantastic, keep it up Shanny!

Shanahan looks sick of his job already.

No way man, he looks pretty passive really, maybe a little uncomfortable in his role, but certainly no shadow of a doubt about the decisions.

Jesus…still?  Put it to rest.

Agreed, it was a sissy fight anyway. If he’d have come off the bench with the express intention… then it would still be worth talking about!

Haha, yep, time to move on. If we are curious about what might’ve been, I’m more interested on how he would handle Kostopulos-Stuart or Laraque-Kronwall.

So Jacques gets suspended, when I’ll bet Crylyle sent him out there to do just that.
