I'm impressed that he nailed Marchand right in the head and somehow completely missed his massive schnozz.

I am actually surprised with how many people thought he'd get more than 4. I'm not trying to be a homer but when's the lat time we saw a suspension for 5 games.. I'm SURE it was more of an attack than Volch's was.

I'm not saying he doesn't deserve a suspension but four games is pretty serious

This is 3 games according to the NHL. This is worse than what Volchenkov did.

This isn't a conspiracy against the Devils, its literally a facet of the NHL operations that literally fails at their jobs.

 

It's no secret there is horrendous inconsistency from the NHL Department of Player Safety but nothing is done about it year after year.

 

Each questionable hit, Shannahan takes his modified Twister Spinner and lets fate decide the punishment. Then he records his videos with as straight of face as possible and reads a generic script.

 

EDIT: I agree with the Volchenkov suspension, there's only a 3-4 inch difference between he and Marchand, no need for the elbow to go right to his head. From my angle at the game, i thought he lead with the shoulder, the other angles proved me wrong.

4 game win-streak here we come! Choo Chooo! Haha

 

As to the justification for the penalty, I think it is well deserved, even viewed
through the tinted windows of a Devils fan. For better or worse,
Volchenkov did not even attempt to hide his intentions. Marchand was
stationary, Volchenkov lugged himself over to the boards and elbowed Marchand
in the head, making no attempt at the puck. Shanahan saw the elbow for
what it was, "you will beat us on the scoreboard, but we will make you
pay for it". Clearly Shanahan is trying to take these types of tactics
out of the game, which result in needless injuries due to goon-esque behavior. I
hope Volchenkov learnes from this, but its doubtful given that the
Devils scored as a result of the penalty and will be in the playoffs as a
result of his suspension. wink wink nudge nudge. lol

If they were kicking the Devils when they were down, they would have mandated he played 35 minutes a game.

 

 

Can Lou petition the league to make it longer?

 

 

I hope he is gone, buy him out Lou.

The gift that keeps on giving :lol:

 

I don't see how anyone can complain about four games looking at that video.  You should be glad it's not more, he clearly led with the elbow.  Or lemme rephrase that, you should be annoyed cause it could have easily been more :P

Being happy over Volch getting suspended is a lot different than being happy over Sal getting hurt.

gosh... I have to confess I'm bummin' about Sal.  I was totally buying into him finding the gas.  I had more than one "Thank you!" for him recently.  I'm a thanker when someone has a good play.

 

That's why I'm just not upset with this team now.  Too many things just boil down to bad timing as much of a cop out as I think that is.  This Sal injury sealed it for me. I'm not dulled or deadened - I just feel like "Darn!"  you know?  It's just one of those things this year.

Im not saying either is right, personally i dont want any of our players suspended or injured.

Thats how i feel. With the shortened season it was always a case of if there are a few bounces that dont go your way , such as a few injuries all in one go, it can pretty much destroy your season.

The other pretty crappy thing about the situation is the whole fury the Devils fans have had over the first Cup win -- the whole * issue.  How many really great arguments were put out there by Devils fans abotu how a shortened season has no bearing on anything?  and now here we are...

 

so we have to play Matteau in our final Rangers games to see if we can at least eliminate them from the playoffs even if we aren't in them ourselves :evil:  I hope we have a turn around - it's getting hard to imagine a little now though.
