Here's a gif of the Weber play. He has to be suspended at least one game for that.
I'm all about schadenfreude against the Wings, but damn...
Yeah, I think a suspension is likely.
Do you know what Red Wings fans are saying? Guess. Just guess.The're saying this is just like Bertuzzi jumping on Steve Moore.
Not surprising at all.
They aren't used to the rough stuff in Detroit. And God forbid someone take a cheap shot against a Wings player.
Because Shanahan tends to suspend any player who plays hard against the Wings, they think something like this is a lifetime ban.
Yes, it was bad. He should get something, maybe a game...but you never know...it is Shanahan dishing out the suspensions now...he could get 50 games because it was on the precious Zetterberg. If Weber did that to Backes, Backes would get suspended for failing to get out of the way of Weber's fist.
Great teammates Zetterberg has eh? Nobody came to his defense or did anything.
Something should be said about the boarding hit by Zetterberg on Weber. That's why he was upset...it was a blatant board against the glass. That doesn't condone what Weber did, not even close, but it wasn't some random act of violence. That should play into the suspension decision. Zetterberg is not some 100% innocent casualty here.
And after reviewing the play a few times, to me, it wasn't as bad as it first looked. I don't think Zetterberg was hurt at all. Good actor he is.
