Shanahan, or the league, whoever you want to call it has absolutely butchered the discipline in the playoffs.
did it start with not suspending weber, for his hit on zetterberg? that was definitely suspendible, and could very well be the difference in the series. If it were not the captain, and in the regular season it could have been 10 games easy.
And that was just the start. there has been so much dirty play, and inconsistency in calls, it's ridiculous.
the shaw suspension is another joke. what is he supposed to do? stop and wait for him to make a play? he had no choice but to run him over. the goalie left himself so vulnerable
i love fights, and love the rough play, but the poor disciplining has the league in chaos right now.
