Can you find us a video?

EDIT

Article from TSN on Heward's condition and comments from Ovechkin. At least he sounds genuinely sorry and concerned for the guy.

Just saw it on TSN. From the angle they show it doesn't look too bad to me. Kind of an unfortunate outcome on the hit - looked like Heward just caught Ovechkins elbow in the back of his neck because he was leaning down. It didn't look like AO went in elbows up, but then again I did not see if he left his feet or not. I can't really tell.

*But now that you posted that vid, the more I look at it the worse it gets. He really crunched his head in there.

Not a dirty hit. Ovie was standing over him while the medics were doing their thing- if it was dirty, he wouldn't have been there.

Just bad luck, and I wish him the best.

No different than Kostopolous hit though, and this was even an elbow accidental or not, he still boarded him

Cheap shot?

In what manner was that cheap? Unfortunate? Yes. Definitely.

Cheap? Not even close.

Ok, it wasn't a cheap shot, but it shoudl warrant a game for not being careful

LOL. This isn't the Ladies Lawn Darts Guild. How "careful" was Ovechkin supposed to be? You want a 3 foot "bubble" around Players while they're on the ice? "No Contact Hockey"? AO barely touched Heward. He rolled off him as soon as he made contact.

Looked more to me like Heward lost his balance.

And Ovechkin didn't cause that?

And also, the leage has been bitching about headhsots, i mean people bitched over the weight hit on suter, that was sparkling clean, this isn;t really dirty but isn't a front side clean as a whistle hit

Kostopolous clearly hit Van Ryn in the numbers, and Van Ryn had his back to him the whole way... From the one angle I see here I can't make much of it, it's a pretty poor angle.

Huard had his back turned the whole time

So it's sarcasm, but you have a *real* point. Well played. <_<

you got me there, but seriously, you must be an ovechkin lover to not see at least a little bit wrong in this incident

I've watched the video four times now and to me it just looks like an accident. Granted, I'm an Ovechkin fan, but I honestly can't find much of anything wrong with his hit.

but compare it to the Kostopolous one, its not as bad but strikingly similar, im an ovechkin fan but im also a fan of justice in this league and i think anybody no matter who you are shiould be suspended, my initial reaction was cheapshot because of the glaring elbow and hit form behind, ovechkin is known for boderline hits, ovechkin is also a star player, where do you draw the line? What if tootoo did this, what if crosby did this? What if ryan hollweg did this?
