Dear GOD. Someone is going to die one day from this. They will. That hit was wrong on so many levels. I mean WHAT?

This should be a Bettman call tonight, rest of the season and 20+ next year.

It's like aluminum bats in college baseball. One day a pitcher will die.

First, I hope that Horton is okay. I've grown to really like his play this year.

With that said, the hit was late but it was not blindside or to the head. Maybe I didn't see what you saw, but what did you see (other than the sheer impact of the hit) that would lead you to want a 20+ game suspension?

Ya it really didn't look any nastier than many hits throughout the playoffs, less so even. I hope Hortan's Ok. Boston wanted to come out hitting hard, this was the result.. not good.

Not good? It was another out-of-control, stupid, ill-timed, cheapshot hit. Other than that, it seems to be pretty typical of the Canucks' play. (Other than the blatant arrogance, of course.) Even if your boys win the Cup, I fervently hope it comes back sooner than usual to bite you all in the ass. Horton is one of their better players. Who the hell is Rome?

KICK ASS, BRUINS!! USE IT!!!

Ya I mean no one can say Romer is a cheap shot artist or has ever demonstrated any history of trying to hurt anyone. Sorry Vladifin, this is the Stanley Cup final and late hits, among other things... happen. I suspect you'd be just fine with the same hit had it occurred against Burrows.

It was the shoulder first lunge right towards his head. That's what I saw. Yeah the game moves fast but he saw his opportunity to lay someone out.

Are you implying that Rome's hit on Horton was somehow Boston's fault?

Yeah, I know it's the Stanley Cup final, and that's all the more reason they should ALL play like they have a brain in their head so they're not kicked out of the game. ANY coach in the league would tell his guys that. Late hits happen throughout the season. Hello? And as for the same hit on Burrows? No I wouldn't be "just fine" with that, so stop trying to read my mind. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Bottom line? It was a stupid, out-of-control hit.

But you know what really bugs me the most about the Canucks? I thought you'd never ask. The arrogance. The "up yours" attitude even when they know they've done something stupid and suspendable (and not got called for it). And yes, I'm referring to the finger bite. Instead of just moving on and letting it go, they decided to come back and be all cutesy and coy and macho and DUMB. You gotta earn the Cup in more ways than one, Bubba.

:lol: Well now, I think you should go out there anytime you're free and show us how a "man" takes a hit like that. I'll even figure out a way to call up Mac or maybe Bertuzzi to do the honors.
