#2466464 Tom Wilson Hit on Brayden Schenn

Posted by jollymania on 20 December 2013 - 12:35 AM

That wasn't a charge. Wilson was forechecking the puck obviously racing in from the bench, the collision was spontaneous and incidental to the forecheck and wilson joining the play. When wilson initiated contact Schenn was in the grey zone. No way you can pin it on Wilson, the game is moving fast. Schenn is known for his big hits anyways, can't a player taste his own medicine once in awhile.

The elbow was not an inherently dirty play, illegal yes, dirty not so much. Neil played the entire game against abdelkader who is pretty much the only guy who would go after cowen so there was no way it was going to happen. Abdelkader would have made a fool out of himself. That is the same reason why helm and abdelkader weren't dishing out big hits. Kronwall tried a few times but the guy is clearly stuck in a hitting rut.

I think the key is to make solid body contact.  If you hit a guy hard to the body, head contact is legal.  It won't take hitting out of the game.  It should get hitting back to how it used to be.  Skates on the ice, no exploding up, no fly by hits that only contact the shoulder/head area.


The league is trying to send that message but gets in its own way with the erratic suspension lengths.  Grabner's hit, for example, should've gotten more than 2 games. 

Hitting has always been explosive, there always have been head hits, blindsides, and even back in the day they threw in elbows for good measure. Don't even act for a second like hits like this didn't occur previously.

No offence, but that's a stupid thing to say. Anyway, like you know what he was trying to do. "Looks like"?


I know you're a big hit guy. Last time I checked, you were president of the Mark Fistric fan club. I'm surprised you'd disagree with my original statement. Especially in such a smarmy way.


Let me rephase. If you're not sure you're going to get the body, give up the hit. Otherwise, open your wallet and get used to wearing a suit when the puck drops.

That has nothing to do with it, he was stepping up to make a pinch, if he avoided contact hertl would have been gone. It was a split second decision by edler, again I don't think you understand the speed/decision making process involved.

Its brilliant. It is sad that in a few years there will be a penalty for hitting too hard.

Yeah, with the combined 1-goal and 3-assists in 47 career playoff games, those are clearly the guys you want in.


Add the great Colton Orr and it's still 4 points in 66 games.


Brian McGrattan ... never played in playoffs.


John Scott, 4 playoff games, no points.


I guess it's pussified to want to win games more than win fights.

Well Shawn Thronton has 2 cups playing as a regular, so its not all the same.
