In response to Fletcher1's comment:[QUOTE]I don't know San, it doesn't look blindside to me. Also, I don't see charging, I don't see an elbow, I don't him leaving his feet prior to the check, and it doesn't look late.
The only question to me is whether there was targeting of the head or not. He got mostly the body which seems to be a key point for Shanny, but I do think he launches himself upwards at the point of impact to put that shoulder pad right under Penner's chin.
So I could see it going either way. It looks 'predatory', I guess, but I don't know exactly what rules were broken. I think a fine or perhaps a game is the most likely outcome.[/QUOTE]
Because of Shanahan's inconsitency I don't think what I think should be done, I guess at what the ruling might be. There is no consitency.
I thought there would be just a phone hearing, apparently not.
Agreed. I thought Shanahan started out with consistency, and then really fell off the rails. Makes no sense to me.
Like hang, I would've thought Grabner's was worse than Garbut's. Grabner's hit is a fairly obvious head shot from the blindside, on a vulnerable oppenant. It's the Daniel Paille hit.
