Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afterall, Brendan Shanahan has been a part of the Wings locker room and he knows the main goal of that room is to win the game.
Instead of suspending Shea Weber for a game, maybe Shanahan knew/felt the Wings would respond in a way to make Weber accountable for his actions and still force Weber to skate on egg shells for the rest of series.
Back in his Detroit playing days, Shanahan would have played the role of Bertuzzi in the fight below, and instead of the goal scorers being Emmerton, White and Franzen perhaps they would have been Maltby, Murphy and Hull.
Make no mistake, Weber should have received a game suspension, but they way things have worked out, maybe not suspending him will be much better in the long run for the Wings.
