I’ll file this in my “not surprised” folder.  Doan has always been the type who rides the fence between playing with an edge and crossing the line.

Suspend the hell out of that sorry excuse for a captain.

He should be suspended for the rest of the regular season. But it’s Shanahan, so who knows.

I have to agree with you Bezukov, Doan has been around a lot of “iffy” plays in his career. But what really pisses me off about this is that Eric Furlatt and Frederick L’Ecuyer only saw fit to call it a two minute penalty! Dave Strader(the play by play guy) gave them the benefit of the doubt and said the play happened at full speed blah, blah, blah. I’ve heard that crap too many times, if you saw the play then you saw how egregious it was. I mean, come on, if this is not a match penalty what is? In my, not so humble, opinion this is the reason that players continue to commit these stupid, vicious penalties. If it cost their team a win(due to a long power play for the other team) I think the TEAMMATES would police this themselves.

I have to agree FTHW. But as far as the refs missing it, there will be a review. You’re totally right that to have an immediate effect would make such discipline more meaningful, but Doan isn’t escaping entirely.

I can’t say I’m surprised that Furball missed the call.  He makes his partner almost as incompetent as he is. 

That being said, the only way to get a message to Doan is to hit him big time.  He should get, as a minimum, the rest of the season.  He probably deserves 30 games given his history.  Most of the rest of the calls were highly questionable too.  Ott got reputation penalties.  The others were probably sort of deserved.  I would have sent a message to Doan, though and called all the penalties on Quebec (ok, Phoenix) players.  That is another way to stop this crap.

Doan featured in both of the Coyotes goals which helped tie the game after it was 3-1 for Dallas.

He was given a chance in the shootout to tie it with the third shot as well.

None of those things should have happened. High speed or not, the refs chickened out on giving a guy a deserved match penalty.

Repeat offender? Elbow to face?
No more than 2-games. TOPS.

Shanahan will realize the Coyotes are fighting for a playoff spot so he’ll say the next 10 games are more valuable than the ones he lost during his last suspension.
So his suspension will be lighter.

The Wheel of Justice lives!!!

JJ and Hank have it about right.  The Coyotes are an NHL owned team in a tight playoff race.

Technically Denver could say the same about Darren McCarty all those years ago…

In any case…Doan should be sitting for a minimum of five, but I’d be surprised if he even got two.

Or Nashville about Marian Hossa a couple playoffs ago.

Or pretty much anybody who has ever played against Chris Pronger.

Every single time it happens is bad

How did they call the elbows a 2 minute penalty? He should have gotten 5 and 10 and been tossed

I hear you. Considering Benn was the puck carrier how do 2 refs miss that?
I’ve given up on the league, it’s officials and anyone else involved with discipline, on ice or off.

I still say 2 games. Shanahan’s a joke just like Campbell. But at least now we know the strings are being pulled by the BOG.
They despised his standard during exhibition and clearly told him to take it down a notch.

This league deserves all the bad things that happens to it. It’s run like a hockey pool with a group of best friends. Rules are bent and broken to help each other out, nothing more.

You should have also see the high-stick that Ryan O’Reilly took from Mark Giordano in last night’s Avs/Flames game.  O’Reilly was in the process of shooting the puck from just above the crease (a shot that hit the crossbar) when Giordano’s stick caught him right across the nose. O’Reilly went down and play was stopped.  Kipper called the trainers over to help him immediately and then called the ice crew over to scrape all of O’Reilly’s blood out of his crease.

No penalty called at all on that play.  It might have something to do with it being a tie game between two teams fighting for their playoff lives with less than five minutes to go in the third period. Or, it might be that the refs are just tired by that point and just simply missed a call.

I’m still not ready to call it a vast conspiracy or anything, but the issue of refs letting teams get away with a lot more than they should has been bad this season.

You’re not alone with that statement.
In fact, I believe they spoke about that during a hotstove recently on HNIC. Several GM’s felt that the refs were calling less and that the league was telling them to blow less whistles.
Of course, the NHL denies it.

I think the NHL wants to let more go to keep the flow going.
But I do believe that some of the refs can’t keep up with the game and how fast it’s gotten.
I don’t think they mean to miss calls, but perhaps the game has passed them by.
Even more reason, in my mind, to go to 4-on-4 permanently or widen the ice surface.

Shane Doan has been getting away with it for some time now and not to insult Pens fans by bringing his name up, but isn’t he developing a Matt Cooke like resume? how many times can you fine a guy and then pretend he is not a mutliple repeat offender.

There is something that the NHL powers that be see in Doan that makes him a good old Canadian boy and not a guy that takes advantage with cheap hits. He should get at a minimum double what Bourque got for his hit on Backstrom, but I am sure the NHL will go lightly because they OWN the Coyotes, Benn was fortunate enough NOT to have his career ended and the NHL doesn’t want to affect the outcome of the playoff race. They pretend as if allowing one player to intentionally trying to end another players career doesn’t affect the race.

Shanahan is now the face, bu Campbell didn’t leave and is still consulting and as stated above the BOG couldn’t care less about player safety.

It’s run like a hockey pool with a group of best friends. Rules are bent and broken to help each other out, nothing more.

And this is my biggest gripe about Bettman as Commissioner. He has no backbone when it comes to how hockey should be played. He allows his cadre of “Professional” hockey men run the league like it is a frat house.  The hockey boys and their cronies in the media will get on their high horses and talk about the Rangers vs Devils being a disgrace and not police a far more dangerous act like this one.
