from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
Having dumped on Brendan Shanahan for going on two years now, I feel compelled to congratulate him when he gets one right.
And I think he nailed it on Eric Gryba.
Well, let me back off that just a bit, since I believe all NHL suspensions are, in general, far too short, which is why there are so many of them. Give Andrew Ference 10 for his latest sneaky elbow and he won't do it again.
But that's just me, and I don't have to answer to owners and GMs and all those who have an opinion on this things.
So within the parameters of his job and precedence, Shanahan nailed it.
I will have the video up when available.

Not a good scene on the ice, hope Eller will be ok. FYI, he was taken off on a stretcher.
Yes a terrible pass by Raphael Diaz, but when are players going to learn to take a player out of the play, not the game.
Gryba received 5 for interference, a 10 and game misconduct.
