Made this for fun. Too soon?


Yes, too soon.

However, I laughed my ass off and nearly peed myself.

I really do hope he is OK.

As for Voracek, the way his arms flailed out after the hit seemed indicative of decerebrate posturing, which is quite serious and implies severe brain damage. I hope Voracek the best, and would love to see him back on the ice soon.

Wrong. Did you even read the link you provided? The position of his arms is called the fencing response and tends to indicate that you just got knocked the f*** out. Don't you ever watch boxing or mma? Voracek only had his arms raised for a split second and was immediately conscious and on his knees. He might have a slight concussion, if at all.

I am with HaroldSnepsts on the Kronwall issue. There are times when he has left the ice before a hit, maybe even been guilty of an elbow here and there. I think there are times when he could have been suspended, and I would have said he deserved it.
With Voracek, it's just not the case. He's admiring his own footwork, leaning forward, with his head being used to make himself more aerodynamic. Blammo (no, I don't often use the word "blammo")! In comes Kronner! If you want to play hockey with your head down, this is going to happen. The contact with the head was incidental, as far as I can see. By that, I mean that to deliver a hit, the head could not be avoided. What I think needs to be addressed, though, is the way players will go after another player for delivering a devastating hit on some numpty that can't keep his eyes up. If it's a clean hit, with no call from the ref, and players start taking shots at Kronwall and whacking him with a stick, why aren't they getting roughing penalties, or instigating penalties when someone (Abby) sticks up for him?
Uhh...you might want to duck!

NHL video examples of legal hits to the head.



The Kronner hit seems to just scream, put me in this montage of hits that were clean of intent.
"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.

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=389661 tsn calling it a "elbow to head" that he "didn't see coming". We should all spam the tsn page telling them how bad their reporting is.

The video doesn't mention an elbow or something so I'm assuming the writer that did that was a Phillys fan or something.
Nevertheless, they also botched the Wing's home winning streak,f****** up the amount of wins they've won and stuff even though they clearly said it in the audio. I may be finding a new sports station.

Kronwall's hits have been pretty consistent. He has done worse than this when he has left his feet in the past. I think what needs to be looked at is Voracek's body positioning. Kronwall is already in motion to make the hit when Voracek bends to try to play the puck which means his head is now where Kronner expected his chest to be (level wise).

I voted yes, but after about 6 more repeats and doing pauseplaypauseplay repeatedly, I think I am in the "clean hit" camp now.

At least I hope he doesn't get suspended. We need him.

Honestly, that's not even close to being borderline like some of his hits may have been in the past. He didn't even have an upward motion. Voracek shouldn't have had his head so low. If you can't make that hit every player will just start skating bent over so they won't get hit.

Kronner needs to hold a summer camp to teach young wingers how to breakout along the boards.

Maybe go to an OHL camp or something. You might say in his case an Allsvenskan or League I or II but the open ice in Sweden is so freegin huge that I'm not sure how he pulled those off during his days in the SEL.

http://www.nhl.com/i...s.htm?id=620874

NHL.com's report:

...Voracek skated off after a thunderous second-period hit by Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall just inside the Flyers' blue line. Voracek was reaching for the puck with his head down, and Kronwall flattened him. He stayed on his knees until the next whistle, needed help to get to the bench and left for the locker room. Voracek did not come out for the third period; the Flyers said after the game that he had stitches in his upper and lower mouth...

Clean hit only avoidable if Voracek kept his head up. No suspension warranted.

Wow what a hit!!!! I ended up spilling my water all over myself. Players need to know who's out on the ice and keep your head up. They can't take hits like this out of the game. You don't like to see players get hurt but it's a clean hit

Hit of the year.

I think this one wins that:

But certainly this hit, and a few others Kronner has had this year, was beautiful.

it was a 100% clean hit, there is absolutely no debate, the debate is whether it is suspendable or not. Which illustrates the joke this league has turned into.

Hit of the year.

2nd biggest, it just doesn't beat the neil hit, although it is close.

The Flyers are retarded. In several post-game comments they essentially admit it was clean, but call Kronwall a ***** anyway.

“Dirty or not, I think it is frustrating for guys in this dressing room to see a hit like this,'' Talbot said. “Obviously, a lot of guys wanted to see Kronwall, and he didn't want to answer for his act.

"It is something that he thought was a clean hit, so you can't blame the guy.''

So...on the one hand "he didn't want to answer for his act" even though said act was legal and required no answering. Then you turn around and say you can't blame him? You can't insult the guy and then defend him in two sentences.
