How do you not see the elbow to the back of the head? I'm gonna go against the grain here... That was one of the more dirtier plays I've seen in a while.

He didn't reach out with the elbow he kept it tight and close to the body and also he's 6'6 it's easy to hit with the elbow if you're tall and the other one is short

Im going to have to go against you on this one... sorry... Sutton kept the elbow tight to his body.... He made no attempt to reach out his elbow to make contact with Leopold's head.... If sutton was 4-5 inches shorter... that would have been all shoulder.... Sutton being the height he is could not avoid his elbow making contact with his head unless he totally avoids the hit completely.... Great no call... You cant start penalizing guys because of hits like that because of their height...

Well - Sutton kept his elbow in; Leopold is quite a bit shorter, and when he's bent over skating the size difference is even more magnified.

In all seriousness I hope Leopold is okay; I want to keep these types of hits in the game (head on hits that is - not advocating the blindsided types)...Poor Jordan has just gotta keep his head up.

Not intentional at all, but elbow straight in the head. OUCH. That hurts to watch.

seems pretty clean to me

he didn't elbow him in the back of the head. shoulder to shoulder hit, the way he was positioned did have his elbow behind Leopold but it doesn't appear that there was any real contact (if it did hit his head it would've been in the helmet). the angle also made the hit a bit weird and the landing didn't seem too pleasant

Yeah, just ask Chris Pronger. Oh wait, that's right. He leads with elbows.

Seriously though, I thought it was clean. Clean enough for a hit on a Penguin anyway.

Awesome,crushing hit. Loving it!

not even so much that he's short, but his head is practically in his feet. I don't like the hit BECAUSE a player got injured, but there's nothing wrong with it. You can take headshots out of the game as much as you want, but players have to smarten up and keep their head up. I sound like Cherry here, but it's the truth. Keep your head up when you're moving forward and you won't have to deal with these types of injuries.

The thing that people don't realize about the elbows on these hits is the physics involved in them. When the players make contact the body stops moving forward, but the arms and elbows still have inertia and keep going. That's why it looks like the elbow is flying.

Great hit, and clean - but still scary. Any contact with the elbow comes from Leopold pushing the puck blindly, obviously. The way he ragdolled after the hit was frightening, though.
