My eyes are dirty?
...Who the f*** are you?!
Did the kid put himself in a bad position? Yes of course he did.
Did the guy hitting him charge? Yes, I believe he did.
Did the guy hitting him, hit too high? Yes, I believe he did.
Did the guy hitting him try to slow down? No.
Did the guy hitting him show any remorse? Hell no, he pushes another guy other right after the hit.
Did an overage OHL player hit a 16 year old rookie with intention to hurt? I believe so.

It's people like you why I hate trying to debate on here. You are rude and cannot let people debate different sides, you have to resort to pointing fingers and accusing people of being wrong.

Yes, your eyes are dirty because you aren't seeing clearly.
I the f*** am Hack and Whack Rule.
...bad position? Yes, you agree with me.
...charge? No, he stopped skating at the bottom of the circle.
...hit too high? Possibly, apparently size matters (my wife was wrong). But I'll give you that one up to the point that Liamba is smidge taller.
...slow down? It's called hockey. People get the smackdown in hockey. Why slow down? Refer to the bad position part of this post.
...remorse? The other guy was going to level him, so he prepared himself. Nothing wrong there, either. In fact, he then took a shot from the goalie.
...intention to hurt? You think so, or you know so?

I apologize if I hurt your feelings. That sounds like attitude, but it is not meant to. The whole point of debate is to accuse the other of being wrong, and then show them why. You have done this yourself in this thread. If you don't want to be "accused" of being wrong (I call it "proven" wrong, but whatever) then you should be more selective in your posts. Especially if you are going to use a frame from a video showing an elbow up on a hit, when the hit is clearly complete in said frame. Again, I apologize for sounding rude.

Eat crow? It was a dirty hit in my eyes, I don't care what you believe it was.

As Broken mentioned above, it's clearly a head shot when the guy gets his skull fractured.

Your eyes are dirty not the hit. You are looking at the outcome of the collision and jumping to conclusions. The kid put himself in that situation. He saw the hit coming, turned his back at the last second, and got laid out. Very unfortunate ending to a hit does not mean the hit was dirty. He tried to protect the puck and keep possession, so he's got a good head on his shoulders (no sick joke intended), but he turned his back on a hit that he knew was coming.

I don't really see that as tucked in..

Dude, you just lost all credibility with this one. I just watched it again, in case I made a mistake, and I paused the video at the right time. The kid is going down and elbows are still tucked in. Watch it again, and warm up your fork, because it's time to eat crow.

Again, I hope the kid is okay.

First of all, I hope the kid will be okay.

Second of all, dude saw the train coming...twice! You can't spin like that to turn your back on somebody and not expect to get hit. He wasn't looking where he should have been. The guys elbows were tucked and he had his guy lined up for a check. That's the name of the game here, folks.

It sucks the kid went down like that, but I don't see anything deserving of a penalty.
