Easy... I was just helping clarify.
In My Opinion....the way the rules are written and the way they are interpreted by fans and refs alike is what the issue is here.
by reading the rule and seeing the hit..that call HAS to be made. it is in the books.
Ok so why wasn't the sucker elbow to Salei's snout called? That was more blatant to the head that what Brown did. Or how about the hit from behind to Pavel's head shortly after that after he took a shot? Or the number of other hits to the head we have seen so far this young season in other games? Come on, if they want to call charging or hitting from behind, ok, the argument can be made, but he didn't intentionally go for the head, if he did he would have hit him there with no trouble, the guy was in no position to avoid that. MY point is, if you're going to call one, you have to call them all, picking and choosing when to enforce things are what piss me off. The rules seem to be enforced entirely too arbitrarily to me.
And to add to that, the next time someone gets Kronwalled, should we be ok that he is gone just because the victim doesn't see him coming because he isn't looking at whats coming like he has been taught since he started skating?
