“What we’re trying to do is keep the game of hockey looking like the game of hockey — physical and passionate, but weed out certain hits that have crept into our game that are making it very difficult for players to play and parents enroll their kids in hockey.”
-Brendan Shanahan, NHL Sr. VP of Player Safety. Shanahan was in Nashville to talk with the Predators and Josh Cooper of the Tennessean has more on his visit.

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...
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.

Adam McQuaid was given a kneeing major and a game misconduct after a nasty collision with Senators winger Nick Foligno. The question then became whether that's all the punishment that Quaider will be seeing from the league office. Brendan Shanahan has shown that he is unafraid to drop the hammer on transgressors this season and hit them with hefty fines and suspensions. But,...
With J Weiss off for finals, Lee hijacks the Block Party and turns it into another 60 minutes of hockey talk. He will be joined by Habs fan Josie, Leafs honk Ben and CLNS’ Luciana Celistine repping the Pens. How does everyone feel about the massive realignment structure? Is Brendan Shanahan the model for [...]
