Brendan Shanahan meets his critic in the most surreal image of NHL postseason (PHOTO)

If you followed the New York Rangers' seven-game victory over the Ottawa Senators, you know that the fans weren't entirely happy with Brendan Shanahan and the NHL Dept. of Player Safety, seeing inequity in the suspensions handed to the teams and seething at plays like Milan Michalek's skate kick in Game 6 that went unpunished.

One fan decided to advertise his displeasure with a sign for Game 7 at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, telling Shanahan (a former Ranger) that he sucks. And look who he bumped into …

As the photograph shows, Brendan Shanahan approached the fan holding the sign from the left side while the two were near an NHL Store in Manhattan. This in violation of Fan Poster Trolling Rule 46.1 which states: "Signs that indicate public officials suck should not be displayed within a reasonable distance of said official unless behind a metal fence or on a large crowd" … the Dept. of Player safety sentences this fan to an awkward meeting and potential Internet infamy.

Seriously, though, how great is this?
