    Hey Brendan Shanahan,

    Take a look at the hit by Chris Neil on Brian Boyle. It’s the same hit you suspended Max Pacioretty from the Canandiens for on Letang. Be consistent! This is ridiculous!

  2. Kevin Kolano says:

    I agree. 1st contact was to the head and Neil aimed for it. If Shanny can’t see that, he’s blind. He’s still ticked of NYR let him go, so he will never side with us. He’s a joke that should lose his NYR jersey and any standing he had left with our organization. I for one, would be happy to write off the Shanny Underachievement Era.

  3. Kevin Kolano says:

    Violation: Rule 48.1 Illegal Check to the Head – “A hit resulting in contact with an opponent’s head, where the head is targeted and the principal point of contact, is not permitted.”

    What did Shanahan do, ask Neil “Did you aim for Boyle’s head?” and then when Neal said “Nah, I was just playing hockey…”, Shanny replied “Oh, OK. Thanks, Chris…I believe you, so you’re not suspended”????
