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.
