Honestly, a day after the hit Voracek and the Flyers have gained a bit of respect from me. The guy takes it on the button, has every right to be a bitter Kesler about it, and yet he says over and over that the fault was his own. Jagr chimes in saying that without those hits "its basketball". This takes more guts than a lot of folks might think and I wish him a swift recovery. Pretty brassy, Jakub! :clap:

Yet Flyers fans are continuing on with their whining and pretending that this didn't occur.

Mad props to Voracek in that interview.

I got to be aware Kronwall is on the blue line.


I saw him standing on the blue line so I was kind of naive and thought he was going to backup and obviously it was a tough hit to take.


Those hits should stay in the game.


On a side note, why do interviews with Jagr look like they were filmed in the 90s?

After hearing Voracek's reaction to the hit, as well as Jagr chiming in to say it's part of the game and should stay, I have very grudging respect for the Flyers.

“I think it was clean,” [Voracek] said. “I had my head down…..I saw him standing on the blue line and I was kind of naive and thought he was going to back up. It was a tough hit to take, but I think it was a clean hit from my side. It was my bad, and I think those hits should stay in the game.”

linky

I became a fan of this kid after the way he handled the entire situation. Can you imagine certain other players if Kronner had done the same to them? :cool:

Crosby was asked today during the Pens/Leafs game and said "Kronwall is exactly what is wrong with hockey today.. If the NHL will not do anything about it, it is up to the players. He'll look up one day and see my fists of fury"

Actually, he gave some wishy-washy 'it could go either way' answer - I like mine better.

I read through this thread but this isn't a "new trend". Just ask Paul Kariya (if he can remember) what Scott Stevens did to him about a decade ago. And that was at the blue line, head down, OPEN ICE. These guys getting Kronwalled are idiots who already have the protection of the side boards. It is their own fault. Plain and simple. Coming up the boards without even glancing is asking to be leveled. Granted some hits are dirtier than other, but a lot of them are clean and the clean ones are the forwards fault 100% of the time. But no matter what, clean hits hurt can hurt just as much as dirty hits.

I have two good reasons not to like him.

1. He attended Ohio State
2. He grew up cheering for the Minnesota North Stars

And the Avalanche too, right? Big no-no to Wings fans I would think.

This hit on Clowe surprised me a little. It made me realize maybe Kronner is stronger than I think he is. At the same time when I saw him hit Kesler this past year I wondered why he couldn't do the same or why he felt as if he had to leave his feet a little. It was like his hit on Ruutu.

The Stevens-Kariya hit was nothing like a Kronwall hit. The puck was on the left wing and Kariya was at centre ice when he got levelled, but that was Stevens MO. Most of his monster hits were after the puck, or the whistle, had gone.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

his biggest hits usually have the puck right there

Are you seriously claiming that some of Scott Steven's big hits were after the whistle?

The guy was a devastating hitter, even moreso than Kronwall. And while some of his top ten hits on youtube would be borderline in todays game, most of hits were and still would be legal. He kept his skates glued to the ice and almost always had his elbows tucked.

Agreed. I hated him when he played, but that guy was a devastating hitter and afraid of no one. I remember one game against the Wings someone actually caught Stevens with his head down and crushed him with a great bodycheck. He was clearly hurting, but got up laughing.

It was fitting that guy played for the Devils.

That video rocked. I love how after most of his hits, he just stood there tall like nothing staring down at the opponent. And I don't know how many times I imagined him saying, 'Get back in yourf****** bench' during that video.

I gotta say, even though I think their fans are some of the biggest douchebags of all NHL fans, I have definitely gained some respect for the Flyers. (note: some)

Pretty much any other team out there would have thrown af****** temper tantrum and been screaming about how Kronner should be booted without question.
