from Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune, Duncan Keith is going to get suspended for drilling Daniel Sedin.
Oh, there is a slim chance that NHL Hanging Judge Brendan Shanahan will go easy on a first-time offender, but the more you see Keith deliver that elbow so perfectly and blatantly, there’s no chance that Shanahan doesn’t send the Blackhawks defenseman to a timeout.
Keith will deserve it, and he should be excoriated for it.
No discipline. No sense of game. No sense of season.
Sure, the Canucks are hated around the world, and even if they aren’t, they should be. I mean, they have a guy who pulls hair and bites and kneed Keith in the groin Wednesday night. Gutless crap. Indefensible crap.
But so what? It doesn’t matter. It can’t matter at this point in the season.
I don’t care if Sedin might’ve gotten away with a hit that banged Keith’s head against the glass earlier in the game—- the kind of hit for which the league is fining and suspending idiots. Again, it doesn’t mat...

Last night there was a lot of outrage about Blackhawks defensemen Duncan Keith's hit on Canucks forward Daniel Sedin.
What I didn't see was a lot of outrage about Daniel Sedins hit on Duncan Keith, and both hits are bad. Being consistent, I think you can see that both players "could be" required to sit a game or two, both hits are bad and unnecessary. I also...

With Shane Doan getting suspended for three games for elbowing Jamie Benn in the face, you've got to think that the Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith is going to get a game or two suspension for taking out the Canucks star forward Daniel Sedin with this high elbow to the head.
These types of dirty hits are not acceptable and the NHL needs to be more proactive in removing...

Defying the predictions of all but the most partisan observers, NHL Discipline has handed down a five-game suspension for Duncan Keith.
Head of Discipline Brendan Shanahan termed Keith's hit to Daniel Sedin's head "reckless and dangerous."
I buy levying a suspension for what was clearly a retaliatory and dangerous hit. I can even see...
Keith received two for elbowing.

No longer able to lineup beside his brother, Hank may to see time on the second line, or sandwiched...
