So other than the fact that Thornton plugs Perron with a blindside elbow to the jaw, and Pietrangelo doesn't toss his bucket, what exactly is in that clip?

Certainly nothing about hitting no longer being in hockey.

Melodramatic much? It's blindside and it's an elbow to the head. Plus Perron didn't have the puck. 3 strikes and you're out.

it was a clean hit how is that blindside? so you can't hit someone with their head down anymore

what the heck were you looking at?

Sorry Jolly, this was dirty. Thornton always goons it up when things aren't going his way, and this is a classic case of him gooning it up. Didn't he go after Lidstrom last year or two years ago?

Keeping your head up won't protect you from a guy coming at you from the side and elbowing you in the head.

Thornton deserves a suspension, due to the fact that Perron fell on the ice. Gimme af****** break.

Man are th fans of the NHL becoming softened up as well or what?

Thornton steps outta the box skates up the to the red line and hits him, not east west. And his elbow was tucked in.

It is a bad angle but if you look, the penalty boxes are behind the red line and thornton hits him at the red line so it is not east west.

This is a textbook hit, it was a suicide pass and unfortunate for perron because he didnt know thornton was coming out of the box but what does big joe do? Let him skate by because the guy has his head down? If thats what the NHL has come to then its a bulls*** league and turning into the god damned NBA

Perron played the puck, or at least attempted to, can't fault Thornton there. There certainly was no elbow, not even close. The only thing I see is the whole hit to the head from east/west thing. If there is a better angle out there that shows a clear hit to the head, then go ahead and suspend him, but from what I'm seeing I can't say this is a no doubt suspension.

Edit - After a second look at it in HD, it definitely looks like shoulder to head, suspendable play if you ask me.
