The Stanley Cup playoffs just started, and the NHL’s credibility is over.
If there’s no suspension for something as blatant and contrary to league dictates as Weber’s act, then there can be no suspension for anyone the rest of the playoffs.
Och på websidor och twitter är kritiken lika hård
Today, Shanahan had the chance to do the right thing, and suspend one of it's star players for a playoff game or two. You want to send a message to the league's players on head shots? That's how you do it. Instead, Shanahan turned the other cheek, and fined Weber for the equivalent of $5 and a stick of gum. It's shameful to think that with the entire sports world watching...Shanahan chokes. Night one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs should be hockey's night to shine...instead it's another black eye.
The headshots will continue. The Red Wings will retaliate.
