Morning Line

It's pretty clear that either Brendan Shanahan is either over-matched for the job or that his idiosyncratic and utterly arbitrary approach is producing massive confusion everywhere.

It wasn't just the stupifying Rick Nash decision from last week, although that was a beaut, another case in which by trying to logically explain a bad decision to a favoured few Shanahan ties himself in knots and ends up explaining nothing.

It was also, however, the decision not to give Ryan Clowe the automatic 10 games for leaving the bench to start a fight. It goes back to Shea Weber's turn-buckle move on Henrik Zetterberg in the first round last year, and Duncan Keith's hit on Daniel Sedin, and then the super-sized suspension to Raffi Torres.

Shanahan’s reputation is slowly going down the tubes. Get the hell out, Shanny, before it’s too late!
