The watchful eye of Brendan Shanahan has come away finding Rangers forward Andre Deveaux guilty of a brutal elbowing violation that will see him suspended for three games.

Deveaux sitting out the next three games means that the Rangers will be going without his overly physical presence on the fourth line and likely seeing one of either Carl Hagelin or John Mitchell take his spot there. Both players were called up yesterday from the AHL.

The suspension for Deveaux falls in line with just about everything that Shanahan is trying to eliminate from the game. Needless elbow to the head going through open ice with direct contact to the head. Yeah, that’ll get you a banning.

    Lose the instigator rule and allow the players to police themselves. I Love Shanny but there is no need for his position if the players were allowed to take care of business. End of story.
