Not a question of if he's getting suspended, but how long.

If I was Shanahan: 7 games.
Shanahan: 2 games.

Jesus. Well if you start at 7 (what it should be), deduct 3 for being a Bruin, 2 more because you (Shanahan) are an idiot, and add 1 b/c it was 2 major sports markets, so lots of eye balls saw it, I come to the conclusion that this will result in 3... 3 games *sesame street Count laugh*

You joke, but it would be more laughable if it wasn't so likely to be accurate. On the other hand, it will still be funny if the end result actually is 3 games, knowing the result was likely achieved with similar logic.

edit: listening to those pathetic homer pukes in Boston spend two minutes trying to justify the hit is really nauseating.

Ference will also get the benefit of the doubt because he isn't that type of Player

Friedman reporting Ference's hearing will be by phone. So 5 or less.

I love the fact that McDonough getting this brings the obligatory Matt Cooke shot. The end of the article says "McDonough has survived more despicable hits than this".

bhaw = Shanny

But seriously, I did not think it was 7 games to start with. The only gripe is the amount of speed he came in with. But, in all honesty I can understand those are extremely dangerous and need to be taken out.
