The kid needs to keep his head up! This is a great lesson for players at all levels about why you always need to pay attention when you're on the ice.

Clearly raised his elbow and targeted the head. The exact type of hit that should have no place in hockey. Classless.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

I don't like Toews (understatement) but he didn't mean to do that. Accident. Hope the kiddo is OK.

Kane hates old people and Toews hates children. Nice job Chicago. :thumbdown:


That kid is lucky it wasn't Kronwall, though.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I don't particularly like the Hawks, but Toews seems like a pretty cool guy - I respect him like I respect Joe Sakic. With all the kids on the ice, I'm sure it gets crazy and I really don't think he meant to flatten him. I'm a pretty big guy and it seems like every time I walk through a public place like a mall, little kids are around and like to play chicken with me and I have to be a frikkin ballerina - I'm scared you-know-whatless that I'm going to inadvertently level a kid like that and get my pants sued off! Difference between me and Toews? He could afford it! :X

Maybe each of my fingers is an undulating shrimp! It's a world of possibilities.

Trevor Gillies would have probably stood over the kid and celebrated.

Are we sure this wasnt a scripted re-enactment of the hit that put Crosby on the DL, I mean the crying and staying down to draw the penalty seems to give it away for me.

Toews went to UND. We have manlier boys up here in ND.

Seriously, he did check to make sure the kid was ok. I mean he stopped and asked if the kid was ok, not that he checked. He already checked. That's why the kid was on the ice crying.

At any rate, I'm sure the kid was fine and that he got a free stick or something like that. And Toews probably still feels bad.

UND got a bunch of goons, and I love it! They also got one hell of a following. When they come to Saint Cloud, it's always a battle of who has louder chants.

People are seriously giving Toews a hard time over that? He glided into him, probably intending to give him a gentle bump. It clearly wasn't meant to hurt him, or even knock him down. It was an accident. It's too frequent that people try to crucify people for simple clumsy mistakes.

You just know that kid will spend the next 10 years of his life bragging to his friends about how he got "freight-trained by Jonathan frickin' Toews". Iz all good.

He clearly did it on purpose. Look a those soulless eyes... They are the eyes of a madman.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Who was giving him a hard time? Most of the posts I saw were making light of the whole thing. Enjoy the fact that we have something we can laugh about the way this offseason has been going
