Brendan Shanahan had a busy regular season, but he could be in line for a busier postseason. Three players will have hearings with the league disciplinarian for their actions during Saturday's slate of playoff games. Rangers forward Carl Hagelin and Senators defenseman Matt Carkner will each have hearings Sunday afternoon, while Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw will have a hearing...
Brendan Shanahan has ruled on Andrew Shaw’s hit on Phoenix goalie Mike Smith.
The Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw was ejected from last night's game for hitting Coyotes goalie Mike Smith. Depending on what angle you watch this collision from, it does appear that Shaw caught Smith with an elbow in the head. I think that Shaw could have avoided this collision and this was an unnecessary hit on the goalie who was playing the puck.
There are other hockey...
Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw was ejected for leveling Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith last night. Smith came out to play the puck behind the net, and Shaw collided with the Coyotes netminder.It's hard to say whether or not Shaw did it on purpose. Either way he was given a game misconduct and a major penalty for charging. He will be facing a hearing today. Chicago...
The NHL playoffs have been brutal this past season. Game misconducts have been out-of-control, and players have not had anything done to deter them. The NHL claims that it wants to protect players, much like that of NFL, but have yet prove that besides some sizable fines. Shea Weber received a simple $2500 fine for [...]
With a new suspension seemingly being handed down by NHL discipline czar Brendan Shanahan every day that passes in the 2012 NHL playoffs (with Raffi Torres being the latest and perhaps most deserving player suspended thus far, with his suspension currently set at indefinite), a discussion about what it all means has been a prevalent [...]

Brendan Shanahan with the explanation.
from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, The only reason Brendan Shanahan, Gary Bettman and their fellow NHL executives are sitting amidst the wreckage of the Stanley Cup playoffs, topped by an inexcusable assault by serial offender Raffi Torres, is their lack of courage in their own convictions.
For that matter, every NHL general manager, head coach, owner, player – any of those...
It was to be expected that disciplinary actions were going to take place following Game two of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators. However, not many expected what would ultimately be an excrutiatingly baffling decision on the part of NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety, Brendan Shanahan. Following [...]
Brendan Shanahan tells us why…

I hope you didnt bet the Penguins to win it all. Or the Canucks. If you have been betting, hopefully you’ve been siding with the road sweaters. We’re less than a week into the great hockey postseason chase. Here...
