Gaborik with Dirty Hit

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

that wasn't that bad of a hit, nielsen turned into the boards and didn't protect himself, i think a 5 min major would suffice if nielsen was injured.

He got 2 min for the hit. I believe there was another 2 min added for the ensuing altercation.

To me, this should be a suspension, because if a lot of other players did this, people would be calling for multiple games. I think Gaborik should have gotten a game misconduct and nothing else. Since there was no game misconduct given, one game will suffice.

i would be fine with a 2 minute penalty but technically it is supposed to be a 5 min major if there is an injury

That was in no way worthy of a suspension. The reason why people like cooke get blasted for hits like these while not being terrible is that they have a long history. Partially nielsen's fault.
