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.

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.

I am one to think that most every other hit that seems bad, I think it's fine. So that being said, I play hockey, and am a bigger guy. I make a hit like that (same body size ratio), I get thrown out of a high school varsity game.

I think that the fact that there was any head contact at all is enough to warrant suspension. I think that I think like a hockey player more than I do as just a fan.

I am surprised that NOTHING was called because of the team that got drilled.

I am surprised at the general consensus that Sutton's hit was clean when most members here disagreed with my assessment of Mike Richards' hit on David Booth as clean for the exact same reasons as are being stated here. Richards led with his shoulder, and hit Booth only because Booth basically skated headfirst into the hit. Same as Leopold/Sutton.

Is it wrong if I am aroused after seeing this? Elbow was at the side, plus he is taller. Clean hit, just hard enough to knock him into next week.

I liked both hits. :cool:

The commentators had it right, no other place for his elbow than by his side. Nothing dirty about the hit at all "just a violent collision."

IMO, guy's elbows only came up on the follow-through (ala kronwall) and the leo just got decked because he didn't have his head up. glad to see he skated off under his own power: a stretcher is the worst thing you want to see in any pro sports game. but leo was wrong place wrong time against a bit body who had him lined up.

Richards elbow wasn't at his side... it also appeared to move very deliberately.

I think the biggest difference for me is what these plays look like at regular speed.

Could be more material for the "no hard elbow and shoulder pads" debate though.

Oh, and maybe not being along the boards just makes it look worse.

Funny interview with Sutton and some reporter from Pittsburgh


God, that got my Saturday morning off and running.
That had the makings for a good 'Who's on first' routine. Hysterical.

Leopold needs to quit taking lessons from RJ. Clean hit IMO, elbow looked tucked in and he hit what was offered to him. No different then a good Kronwall hit.

It was good to see him get up and skate off under his own power.

Wow, that reporter was a douchebag. Didn't even seem to realize that Sutton made him look like a complete ass. :lol:

Entertaining hit. I'm truly surprised that there was no penalty or suspension called due to the team leopold plays for.

Wow, what a good clean hit! Great to see hits like that still in the NHL. Just as nice to see Leopold get up under his own power too.
