wtf is Kassian thinking there? How is that not intentional?

When you miss a hit, you don't spin around and swing your stick. If the league is still taking into account the injury, then it could be a significant suspension.

I actually thought Weise's was the more "Holy crap, did he just do that?" of the two. He was literally head hunting. Whereas I can't imagine Kassian meant to do what he did. I think he got careless, and that was compounded by frustration and what not. Sort of a "Oh, maybe I hit someone with my stick, but I don't really care. Besides, what are the od--OH s***!!!"
