Puckin' Around With Spector

The hefty suspensions laid down by new NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan was the talk of the recent preseason.
He wasted little time demonstrating to the players that the league is taking seriously the enforcement of Rule Number 48, which addresses illegal hits to the head, suspending nine players in only two weeks.
The suspended ranged from “enforcers” like Philadelphia’s Jody Shelley and Calgary’s Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond, to skill players like Columbus defenseman James Wisniewski, Toronto left wing Clarke MacArthur, and Buffalo forward Brad Boyes.
