It is disappointing but not surprising that the NHL has dropped the puck with it's decision regarding Andrew Shaw. The NHL playoffs are the most exciting time of the year and Brendan Shanahan apparently hasn't been watching many of the games. The inconsistency of his decisions obviously indicate his inability to be objective. He has decided to make a rookie the poster child for the playoffs and turned a blind eye to the likes of Shane Weber's and James Neal's display of headhunting.

Since the next two Blackhawk games at home and will be televised to a national audience,nothing would be sweeter justice than to have 22,000 fans express their displeasure with Shanahan's pathetic decision!Forget about Detroit!
