Found December 15, 2011 on CLNS Radio:
Adam McQuaid will apparently escape anymore discipline from Brendan Shanahan and the league for his kneeing major and game misconduct against Senators forward Nick Foligno.  Nick Kypreos tweeted that he is in the clear. I was on the fence about possible action (I thought one game at the most) but after reviewing the NESN breakdown, it must have been what [...]

Red Wings engage in different sort of visit with Brendan Shanahan

MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that the Red Wings visited with one Brendan Shanahan, former teammate of about a third of the Wings, to talk about something that doesn’t involve reminiscing old times: The Detroit Red Wings are probably the last team Brendan Shanahan has to concern himself with when it comes to disciplinary matters, since they usually have the fewest fighting majors...

Adam McQuaid Could Face Suspension, But Clean Record, Lack of Intent Make It Tough Call for Brendan Shanahan

Brendan Shanahan has his next decision to make, and this one is not going to be easy. Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was given a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct late in the second period of Wednesday's 5-2 win in Ottawa for sticking his leg out and tripping up Senators forward Nick Foligno. But is that enough of a punishment? That will be up to Shanahan. He...

Adam McQuaid Not Suspended, But Fined $2,500 for Kneeing Ottawa's Nick Foligno

You could make the case that Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was heading for a suspension after kneeing Senators forward Nick Foligno on Wednesday night in Ottawa. However, the NHL has acted, and the B's defenseman won't miss any time. While McQuaid won't have to sit out any games, he will have to write the league a check, as the NHL has announced that the Boston blueliner...

McQuaid Knees Foligno

I would expect the NHL to review Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid's knee to knee check on  Ottawa Senator's forward Nick Foligno. When I first saw the hit, I thought that Nick Foligno would be done for the night but Foligno returned to game after shaking it off on the bench. McQuaid was given a five minute major and a game misconduct.

Video: Will McQuaid’s knee-on-knee with Foligno stir Shanahan?

Brendan Shanahan made his opinion regarding knee-on-knee hits perfectly clear last week, when he suspended Colorado Avalanche centre Kevin Porter four games for his hit on David Booth. He came down harder on Porter than he has on some of the NHL's headshot artists this season. That in mind, it stands to reason that Shanahan has a special kind of disdain for knee-on-knee hits...

Quick Thoughts On a Tuesday Night

From the WTF Files: Nick Foligno’s 2011-12 Season In case you haven’t noticed, Ottawa’s newest center is having a hell of a start to his 2011-12 season. Just thirty games in, his 10 goals and 9 assists have him well positioned to break his career high in goals (17) and points (34). Some would say he’s developed into a different player this season. A dirtier player even…...
