We'll all get over it. If you can't get over it, I don't know what else to tell you. I'm 100% certain that my ability to enjoy a Red Wings hockey game will not be diminished one bit if Kronner and Stu can't leave their feet anymore when they hit someone.

I can get over it, i am just warning people. As far as Kronwall goes this ruling is HUGE for him.

First, I don't understand why this post has not been merged with the other relevant posts or why it is worth pinning. Hardly any of the comments discuss the topic of the post which is the future of hits by Stuart or Kronwall, not the Fistric hit or past hits by Stuart or Kronwall. Saying that, while I love to see great (but legal) hits by these two, if they are dwindling on hits in exchange for more focus on improving their defense, offense, or "goaltending," that is an exchange I'm fine with seeing.

Why is this topic pinned? Its pure conjecture on the OP's end.

No. He has been suspended indefinitely for his hit on Ponikarovsky.

Edmonton defenseman Andy Sutton has been suspended indefinitely by the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety for his hit on Alexei Ponikarovsky of the Carolina Hurricanes during the third period of Wednesday's game.

Sutton has been offered the option of an in-person hearing.

The NHL suspended Sutton for five games earlier this season for a hit to the head of Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog during an Oct. 28 game in Denver.

I wonder how big this'll be on Sutton since he was just suspended a little over a month ago.

And it's a good thing this thread is a completely different topic than the NHL suspension thread. :P

Will this be the first double digit game Shanaban? That was pretty bad, especially so soon after his last involuntary vacation.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

I don't think this will effect Stuart in any way, as he usually goes ass first and lays a pretty mean Johnny Bucyk on most of his targets. As for Kronwall, he had better be wearing weights on his skates to keep his damn feet on the ground. He knows that the league is watching this now. He has no excuse now. He needs to aim at the crest on the front of the sweater to make sure that he's not head hunting.

I'm sort of baffled at where the "exploding upward" hit came from. What ever happened to the days when Stevens, or Robinson, or Potvin, or Horton, or Marotte, would just run your ass over, and keep skating? And what was so wrong with those hits, that they had to change the style of hitting to more resemble a perfectly executed tackle in football?

As already pointed out, no, suspended for a different hit in the same game. However, the hit on Skinner was pretty borderline as it looked to me like he led with his elbow. His hit on Poni was absolutely pathetic though and deserves suspension for sure.

Absolutely agree.

Even though the skates are often on the ice during contact, launching up into a guy is in essence still charging. It just slowly became acceptable over the years. So it looks like the league is trying to get it back to where it was.

The good news is that though it looks like they may be trying to take hitting out of the game, the game used to have tons of hitting without players launching up like that. Players just need to learn to get back to that.

Fistric just got suspended for a legal hit exactly in the manner in which these two players make hits.

All I can say is I told you so to the people so naive not to see this coming.


"I informed you thusly" is better.

it was 2 min charging penalty, sutton didn't need to do that but what the hell was ponikarovsky doing?

Ummm...Keep your head up. Most of those hits you can see the guys not looking. They're looking down and don't see the hit coming to move out of the way or position themselves to make it a less aggressive hit.
