Brendan Shanahan: "I hate what Ray Emery did, but...I have to follow rules"

By Allan Muir

Brendan Shanahan was on Sportsnet's Hockey Central at Noon on Tuesday and, not surprisingly, the talk eventually made its way to the Ray Emery vs. Braden Holtby fight.

Shanahan was blunt in his assessment of Emery's actions, saying "I hate what Ray Emery did." But he was quick to add that he had no authority under the current rules to assess a suspension or fine as a result of Emery's actions. "That's not a decision I can make on a Saturday night because I don't like it. I have to follow the rule book."

Shanahan then issued a challenge to the men in charge of making the rules.

"If the caretakers of our game, the general managers, don't like it, it's important to say when a rule is not properly addressed in the rulebook, and I don't think it is."

For the rest of Shanny's take, including why he didn't use the Aggressor rule to address this situation as he did in suspending Matt Carkner back in 2012, check out the video above.
