Shaw suspended 3 games for hit on Smith

Postby MayIsForHockey on Tue Apr 17, 2012 2:59 pm

Andrew Shaw gets 3 games for hitting goalie Mike Smith in the head.

Gotta wonder what Ryan Miller thinks about this - 3 playoff games for a guy with no history versus nothing for Lucic:

Shaw gets 3 games, Lucic got nothing for a worse hit on a goalie, and Weber got nothing for banging a guys head into the glass.

Garage league.

I actually don't mind this. Guy committed two major no's. No #1: Don't hit the goalie. Big No #2: Don't hit the head. He did both. Shanny can't go back in time and suspend Lucic so at least he's doing something about this now.

His history indicates that no, he isn't. This was another arbitrary punishment.

3 games seems perfectly appropriate.
I get the concern over the lack of consistency, but why gripe when he actually does the right thing?

Smith did a hell of a job acting... it's obvious Shaw's intention wasn't to lay a body check on Smith, considering he's smart enough to not purposely put his team shorthanded (i would hope)
