Brendan Shanahan Must Enact Harsher Penalties to Prevent More Dirty Hits in Playoffs (Video)

This NHL postseason has already seen more suspensions, through half of the opening-round series, than we saw through the entire 2011 playoffs.

NHL Disciplinary director Brendan Shanahan, is the one responsible...

Brendan Shanahan needs to finally get it and suspend Raffi Torres

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 [...]

Penguins' Neal suspended one game, Asham out for four

Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal was suspended one game and Arron Asham four contests by the NHL for their actions during Sunday's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series versus the Philadelphia Flyers.

Making Sense of the Flyers – Penguins Mess – Neal, Asham and Craig Situations Explained

The Flyers-Penguins series has been a series for the ages already. With so much happening, especially in yesterday’s slug fest at the Wells Fargo Center, it was kind of hard to keep everything straight. There were things that happened in that game that I have never seen before. Rules were enacted that I didn’t even know existed. I suppose that’s a testament to the freaky nature...

Maple Leafs GM’s take on suspension controversy is super groovy, man

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 [...]

Glass Panes Suspended Indefinitely by Brendan Shanahan After Vicious Attack on David Krejci (Video)

Finally, Brendan Shanahan is going to send a message in these chippy, sometimes dirty NHL playoffs. The NHL dean of discipline has ruled to indefinitely suspend all panes of glass after one fell on David Krejci in Game 1 of the Bruins' series with the Capitals. Of course, that's a joke, but with Shanahan and the NHL, you never know. Check out this humorous video, though.

Penguins Will Be Down 3 Players Tonight After Suspensions

It took forever, but Brendan Shanahan, the NHL’s czar of discipline handed out two additional suspensions to the Pittsburgh Penguins late on Tuesday night.

Blame All Involved

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...

Hagelin Suspension Latest NHL Mockery

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 [...]

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Fights, Underdogs Rule, Cup Favorites Wilt

Its been a wild, wacky and somewhat thuggish start to the NHL playoffs. Cup favorites are already on the ropes. Home ice advantage has been usurped everywhere you look. 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...
