CLutterbuck Destroys Richards

Beauty hits, but getting beat up by Steve Ott almost ruins it. Almost, and I stand by my stance that Clutterbuck-Helm-Callahan would be the most entertaining line in the league.

Looks like he jumped into the second one.

Yeah really. I guess Kronwall isn't the only one. Just someone who gets called on it.

that was kronwall like, he was close enough and i htink his feet were on the ice at contact anyways so it was a clean hit, same with kronner's hits

gotta fight after every clean hit now. its a new rule. its lame.

Now? You new the the NHL? It has always been a league that said "if you're gonna hit my guy, be ready for a fight." Scott Stevens did not have 100+ NHL fights because he went around looking to drop the gloves every chance he could get - he fought relatively often because people held him responsable for his hits. You wanna throw your body around? Awesome! Just be ready to back it up when you knock someone's buddy loopy. It's the way it is and it's the way it's always been in the NHL - and it's the way it should be.

Just trying to figure out if the bigger idiot is Clusterf*** or Ott...

I kinda like both. What makes them "idiots", exactly?

That hit by Lucic that everyone loves, where the glass breaks, is an obvious example of a player jumping into a hit as well. But I've never seen anyone mention it.

It's just that Kronner has gotten a reputation for it, so people see him leaving his feet even when he's not.

Stevens also threw a lot of dirty hits, so those fights are understandable.

It's not the fighting after dirty hits that irks us, it's the fighting after perfectly clean hits - which is what Clutterbuck's hit was.

I disagree. If you're reasonably tough, you don't let your teammate get lit up, legal or not, without a little punnishment in hopes that next time, the hitter hesitates. This is NOT new stuff. Semenko and McSorely used to fight people for breathing on Gretzky too hard. There has never been an understood requirement for a hit to be dirty in order for a fight to spring from it. If you're going to throw your body around, that's great, just be ready for the people who don't appreciate such.

And to whoever responded re stevens - very, VERY few of his fights were in response to dirty hits - they were in response to big, clean hits.
