    No injury = No suspension on this one

    Wow, that looks bad
    Not sure what the context it, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a review

    Err, I think the NHL may take a closer look at this than most people think.

    I don't think it will be a suspension, the call on the ice makes that much less likely. But it is certainly something DoPS will keep in mind if Subban ends up on their radar again these playoffs.

    How is that in any way a hockey play , playoffs or not ? What if MacInnon got hurt ? I'm not a Avs fan but i sure enjoy watching MacInnon play . All that play shows me is a big baby getting frustrated because he can't stop the other player from playing so good . Subban is a dirty , dirty player and i would way rather watch MacInnon play than Subban .

    There is nothing good with Subban as player. He scores points but team wins even without those points if a replacement plays more sound game with better understanding of the game. He passes puck too late sometimes, he makes some extra moves that causes rest of line mates to skate out of sync, he checks players and put himself out of play, he drags players down and wrestles with them instead of just participate in the game. He acts like a the bully kid in peewee.

    Exactly this. How are so many people saying no suspension? No injury I guess. All but the most blind homers would be saying 5 games+ if MacK was concussed there.
    Might be a bit of suspension/dirty play fatigue setting in too, but standards shouldn't be lowered just because these playoffs have been exceptionally dirty.

    Well.... he’s a bit of a dirty weasel on the ice. Appears the league will never touch him, and will let him continue his cowardice punishment free.
    Have you ever sat at a game and watched the guy closely? He’s skilled but a hack job.

    Same as Doughty on Marchessault but there wasn’t a thread for that.

    Subban gets away with way too much of this. Every time I watch a Predators game it seems like they get the most favorable refereeing in the entire league, but it's actually just Subban getting away with that much.

    I look forward to the Nashville fans who’ve whined about Subban’s dust-up with Crosby in the SCF for the past year being consistent and equally concerned about this one.

    I won't comment on the actual incident since I prefer to be neutral here, BUT I will comment on how it's stupid to use neanderthal as an insult when many studies proved they were more intelligent and benevolent than homo sapiens at first.

    That was the 2nd time in this game he did that. He keeps loading that hand up and trying to disguise it as a shove. The intent is pretty clear, and it’s one of those things the refs should probably nip in the bud to avoid any unnecessary nastiness. But, he an MacKinnon got matching minors. Both for holding after they got kinda tied up after the play.

    Likely because Haula and PK play on Gary’s new favourite teams as to why they get away with garbage like that

    Subban has been using that punch-hit since he entered the league and gets away with it constantly. It's a head scratcher.

    He does. Anyone who watches him play knows he does. Even his ex-coach said it recently.

    Maybe you should visit it, it seems to be of interest to you.

    Subban does blatant dirty cheap shots all the time, and never gets reprimanded for it. Total lack of respect for humans, when he behaves like that.

    Don’t forget his slew foot too. No honesty or respect in his game whatsoever.

    Was Subban holding him in a leg lock? Because, you know - everything is one sided here. Perhaps Sid should have just let his ankle get twisted.

    Thornton also gave Sid a hook in the finals two years ago... nothing called there either.

    That was a blatant punch to the back of the head by Subban and stupid play. Unless the series has gotten to TO/BOS, VGK/LA level of nonsense - it should just be a penalty and hold off on the suspension talk.

    Not a big deal. That little forearm shivvy is a standard hockey move and doesn’t hurt anyone when it’s applied to the shoulder the way it was here.

    Typical Subban. Off the ice, he's a great guy. On the ice, he is about as dirty as they come.
