So far the Canadian media has not had much to say about P.K. Subban's dangerous slew foot on Chris Kunitz.
Elliot Friedman of Hockey Night In Canada commented on it on Twitter:
If this was Matt Cooke (or Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins) we have a feeling there would be more "analysis" from the media.
But not when it's Subban.
We've watched P.K. Subban do this sort of thing against the Penguins three times and, quite frankly, leaving this relatively unpunished is a joke.
Let's review why we are so pissed off.
First victim: Jordan Staal - April 30, 2010
29 second mark.
This is the least vicious of the slew foots, and maybe it's not even a slew foot, but the others make you question the intent. Staal was out until later in the series.
Second victim: James Neal - November 26, 2011
Subban got nothing for this while James Neal was fined for a high stick. ProHockeyTalk nailed it with this headline: James Neal fined for being slew footed b...
BEST OF MAXIM

James Neal tied. Malkin ended it.
Malkin and Neal are becoming the scariest combo in the league. Another huge win for the Penguins. First regular season win in Consol over the Caps since 2007.
The rehabilitation of Matt Cooke from reckless hockey hooligan to upstanding citizen in the NHL has been well-documented, with ESPN and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the latest to pen "Injurious thugs can change!" soliloquies.
But much like the Ottawa Senators' record, everyone is waiting for Cooke's reputation to regress back to its expected norms; looking for...
Center Brad Richards sat out practice this afternoon following the team's 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, as per Andrew Gross. In addition, the Rangers reported that he was sitting out due to the slew-foot he received from Pittsburgh forward Matt Cooke midway through the second period of Thursday's tilt. Richards would later confirm that he had a stiff neck after being...
And in a not surprising ending, Evgeni Malkin scores the game winner just 1 minute and 31 seconds into overtime. Malkin and Neal were again the force to be reckoned with. Neal and Malkin could not compliment each other any more, Malkin had 2 assists on Neal’s 2 goals and Neal had the assist on Malkin’s overtime goal. Kris Letang scored the first goal for the Penguins on...
Matt Cooke has proven with his actions that it is possible for players to change their approach to the game to make the game safer.
The NHL has decided not to review Matt Cooke's knockdown of Rangers center Brad Richards on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
Was busy at post-practice today, working on Ryan Callahan story for the weekend.
But did have time to get Brad Richards’ angry reaction to that pile of carcillo Matt Cooke’s slew foot, and John Tortorella talking about Boston tomorrow.
Richards missed practice with a neck that “locked up” after the game, but said he had no symptoms of a concussion (he missed 10 games...
It's a (gettin' down on) Friday edition of Marek vs. Wyshynski beginning at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT, and we're talking about the following and more:

It is rarely a treat to get up and down to the Consol Energy Center on a Sunday morning; however a performance like the one the Penguins put forth today somehow makes it worth it. Sure they did their best to give this game away to the Capitals, who they haven’t beaten in Pittsburgh for close to three years, but again… they found a way.
It is no surprise that at the root of finding...
