Panther Parkway’s Noon Headlines: Dazed And Confused.

What better way to spend your lunch break than catching up on all of last night’s amazing NHL action that you may have missed! Here are the top stories and videos from the all of yesterday’s action around the NHL.

* Yesterday’s biggest news items revolved around player suspensions.  Or lack of.  Rick Nash escaped what many thought should have been a two game suspension for this hit on Tomas Kopecky.  Later in the afternoon Alex Edler received a two game suspension for charging Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith for this hit.  I still wonder if the NHL’s Discipline Department, and Division of Player Safety really know what they are doing.

* When looking again at the Tomas Kopecky/Rick Nash hit, and how it happened and where Kopecky was hit and you compare to this hit from Joffrey Lupul on Victor Hedman, which earned Lupul a two game suspension, it’s hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong.

* I would have to agree with our good friend Bill Whitehead that Brendan Shanahan swung and missed.  Mostly Panthers Hockey.
