Honestly, he lead with the shoulder and the puck was right in front of selanne.

I don't see how he can get suspended (Not a blindside hit + The ref didn't think it was dirty)

I'd be shocked if he was suspended.

If you are really bored go check out the 13 page rage fest about this hit on HF. Entertaining stuff.
Anyways, north-south hit, Selanne saw it coming, Kronner didnt leave his feet until after he made contact, and its not even an elbow. The league isnt going to do anything.

looks to me like kronwall caught selanne's chin with a little bit of elbow but most of the hit was shoulder

he was on one foot when he hit him but he left his feet afterwards. problem is kronwall leans too far forward when he goes for hits like that. it's annoying.

I'd say legal by current rules, though I don't think it should be.

Kronwall is a headhunter. I kind of agree with Selanne that sooner or later someone is going to get him for it. I almost hope he gets suspended for it, maybe that would get him to straighten up.

the hit was fine, it was the follow through (elbow going up and skates leaving the ice) that make it questionable.

He will get a talkin to and thats all, especially since Selanne was not hurt.

Kronner has already been the victim of a few dirty knee-on-knee hits, remember last season?

Imo there wasn't really anything wrong with this hit.

Then Beleskey should be banned for a life in NHL for his stupid elbow attempt on Franzen.

Great hit by Kronwall - keep going

why don't we just make the entire sport no-contact, and I can quit watching? By the way, I think the guy they suspended the other night for grabbing a fan ought to get a bonus -- the fan asked for it -- and LOVED it, no doubt. They're playing hockey, not tiddly-winks. Jeez.


oh, ummm, GO KRONNER!! :thumbup:

Boarderline dirty hit like every one of his big one's.... Wasn't blind side, didn't have much choice in where to hit him due to positioning, he did left his feet though and looked like some elbow action. Debatable either way.. I wouldn't suspend that hit.

Clean hit, just needs to modify his follow through so it doesn't look as bad.

It was pure accident that it hit Selanne in the head. Not trying to be a homer. It was a bad hit for Selanne to take, no question, but it wasn't illegal.

In some sense it was a defensive hit too. He had the puck and saw someone bearing down on him. Most other Ducks would have finished the check on Kronner, and that is what he was prepared for. Instead, Selanne let up and was Krushed.

works every time

You know with the track record we have with the Ducks and all of their cheap ass hits and what not, they have this stuff coming as well. Keep your head up Teemu! Im glad that our guys are starting the hits instead of receiving them!!

No way now how was this hit either dirty or illegal. Both players body positioning just happened to be right for their to be head contact. There is nothing Kronwall did or could have done differently. It is going to happen from time to time. It is just the nature of the sport.

All I will say is if he gets a game for that attention getter on Selanne, then the NHL can suck it. Those hits from the Blackhawks in that second game this year were way worse. Also have seen worse offenses to the head from other guys in other games so far this year. Suspensions from them: ZERO. Only suspension I have seen is on that jackass Rypien.

So much for the NHL cracking down on head shot and unnecessary blind side hits.

(And yes, I am quite upset at the leagues inability to properly enforce their rules and regulations)

If you watch the video on NHL.com explaining the new rules regarding hits to the head, this one would be deemed legal. The way he leaves his feet afterwards makes it appear borderline, but I would still consider the hit to be legal.

Yea I think that blatant attempt to hit a man in the head with a history of concussions was a lot worse than the Kronwall hit.

Seeing guys who hit from behind causing concussions only get 2 games, Kronwall's hit won't get anything.

This and don't forget Fistric's "legal" hit to Franzen in the Dallas game. Selanne saw him there and did nothing to protect himself. What's Kronner supposed to do let him go by with the puck or dive at his knees? Good hit, f*** the Ducks.

legal, but on the edge because of the elbow. Not suspension-worthy though.
