All y'all need to stop living in the past with demanding retribution/explanation/etc. for the Weber hit.
Yes, it was a bad non-call, non-suspension, Shannywithhisheadinhisass kind of situation.
...and I love PainTrain as much as the next guy, but he gone. He ain't coming back.
I'm pissed at Abby. He's been playing well, been a good presence on the ice and then crosses the line and does something REALLY unnecessary.
Abby's hit was questionable and he compounded the issue by both exploding upwards into the hit (and in turn leaving his feet during impact) and extending his arms. Keep your s*** in tight and rock the body, you got yourself a clean hit...
OR DO YOU?
More than anything else:
I want a more coherent explanation of the Gryba on Eller hit. It's topical. It's current.
It's going to be a video comparison we see over and over and over moving forward. ...and I still think it's clean as a bar of Irish Spring.
The video shown in the Shanaban explanation shows that initial point of contact is the chest and shoulder area. To me, it's clear. Impact is chest/sternum, glancing head, glancing right shoulder. It's unfortunate that hitting the ice opened up Eller's precious face, but c'mon Shanny this is grasping...
You say Eller is eligible to be hit, but then quantify it with nonsense!!
I don't even understand what "taking the wrong route" means or "enough of a full body check."
He doesn't explode upwards. He doesn't extend a shoulder, elbow, or fore-arm.
Get out your protactor, t-squares, and level to measure the angle of body checks folks... This is what it's come to.
