Ok, when are people going to understand that leaving the ice 2 inches with your skates doesn't mean he's leaving his feet to hit a guy. The nature of body checks seems prove that its going to happen more often then not. I seen no maliciousness there.

He did leave his feet, though that part didn't really look intentional. Other than that I don't have too much of a problem with this hit.

Clean hit. Nothing there that is any different than the collection of ones we see from Kronwall. He doesn't leave his feet (jump) to lay the hit, but powers up into it when contact is made.

Thanks for the pic. I thought that it might have been a "Kronwall" situation where his feet leave the ice after contact, but I wasn't sure. It's hard to tell sometimes watching these videos on youtube.

Would you say the head is the principle point of contact? That's the phrase Shanny seems to love, it looks to me as if that's the case. Don't get me wrong I thought it was a great hit but.I wouldn't be surprised if he got a suspension.

The fight took place directly above the injured player. This drives me nuts.

Also, the title of your thread is very incorrect and should be changed.

That's why I feel a suspension is looming. It looks like the brunt of the contact was absorbed through the head, and Shanahan has really cracked down on that, which I can respect. At the same time, Nieddereiter needs to take at least some responsibility for getting caught with his head down. It may have been a hit to the head, but it was anything but blindside.

Agreed. It is very much like a Kronwall hit.

Honestly though I think the exploding up into hits has been a bad development in hitting style over the years, and something the league may try to curb. Because when you're exploding up into a hit, you're putting your force up towards a guys head, even if your skates are on the ice at the point of contact.

It's possible to crush guys without that leaping up. Stevens was the master at it.

Beautiful hit, the kind of hit that 100% belongs in the game, i like nino, but keep your head up kid.

Reminds me of a Kronwall hit. Explodes up into the player.

Damn it! Why couldn't he have saved that hit for a certain poster boy!?!?! Nice CLEAN hit though, not a thing wrong with it! If he gets a suspension that is what's wrong with the NHL...

...on a sidenote, looks like "Little Neddy" Nederlander may have to go back to silent Hollywood western musical's after that hit! "Sew very old one! Sew like the wind!"
