No photoshop needed but kook, if you could make the shooter be a photoshopped Pav or Hank face, that would be stellar. Maybe even Happy Huds :thumbup:

I'm not kook, but...

#2156441 Ruutu suspended for clean hit on Erat

Posted by Third Man In on 22 April 2011 - 03:01 PM

I'm guessing you meant Erat. :D

I know what you're saying, but I really don't think this is the same as what Cooke did to Savard. And they definitely need to try and limit concussions, it's just that they're such an unpredictable thing, I don't think you can punish guys because a hit results in a head injury. There's plenty of squeaky clean hits that could cause concussions. You can however limit the kind of headshot hits that often lead to concussions and are more about trying to brain a guy than separating him from the puck, I just don't think this hit qualifies.

oops, eh? :lol:

I agree with most of what you're saying. And I hate that whether a player is injured or not plays so much into league discipline--the act, not the result, should be what's considered. I just disagree on the last bit: I don't think this hit adds anything to the game, it is one kind of hit known predictably to cause concussions, and it is a hit you can easily categorize and take out of the game.

Should a player have his head down while skating through the neutral zone or receiving a suicide pass? No. Should a player be potentially subject to headaches, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, memory and attention problems, sleep problems, and irritability for the rest of his life because he does? No way.

I don't think you can ever completely take concussions out of the game, but can the league significantly reduce them by identify and eliminating the types of hits, like this one, that cause the bulk of them? Absolutely. If that offends you because it "degrades physicality from the game," there's always UCF.

I don't know how to edit gifs, but someone needs to put Doan's face on the kid in this one.
