VIDEO: Will Shea Weber be suspended for his hit on Zetterberg?

section303QUICKHIT

After the final horn on Thursday night, Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber took Henrik Zetterberg‘s head and planted it against the glass.

Twice.

Will Weber face a disciplinary hearing with the league? Should he? You be the judge.

With Hal Gill day-by-day, the Preds can ill-afford to lose Weber for any reason, let alone because of something he did that warranted a suspension. Nashville fans hope all he gets is a fine but the reality may be at least a one game sentence.

So what should Weber get? Leave your opinion in the comments below!

    Even as an avid Pred fan, I’ve got to admit that Weber probably deserves at least a game. I saw it live and it was pretty nasty. Not a smart play.

    As much as I love Weber, I have to say that was a really bad move.  Zetterberg took a cheap shot at the end there, but the retaliation was WAY uncalled for.  At least one, maybe two games.

    Brooks Orpik saw no supplemental discipline for his hit on Derek Stepan, and that was as flagrant as this was.
     
    But if Weber gets run for this, then Zetterberg should too.

    Webs. You’re breaking my heart. Probably a game.

    Shanahan said that he was willing to give longer penalties in the regular season because its 82 games, but that he views each playoff series as a 7 game season and won’t be as harsh, so maybe he might only get one game.

    Zetterberg drove Weber’s knee into the boards. This action was meant to remove Weber from the playoffs, if not end his career in hockey.  The Red Wings have long been the team of nasty, cheap shots (being the home of Todd Bertuzzi after all.) and get away with it time after time. Weber will probably face fines and/or suspension, especially since the guy in charge of handing out these penalties, Shanahan, is a Red Wing himself. Uncalled punches and sticks to the faces of Predators at the hands of Red Wings happen every time these teams meet and last night was no exception. Two wrongs don’t make a right and Weber should have kept it together and not lost it at the end of the game, but I find it hypocritical of the Wings, who dish it out on a regular basis, to whine when they get a little of their own medicine in return.

    What’s missed in the video is Zetterberg stomping on Weber’s skate as he tries to dislodge the puck from against the boards. If you stop frame the video you can see Zetterberg’s skate come off the top of Weber’s skate. At that moment Weber reacts by pouncing on him. This is not justification for Weber’s head shot, but does explain why Weber did what he did.
