Where are you reading that? stltoday.com? That place is a mess of idiocy.
It's best not to read that place.
It's on your site too.
Stuart only got his elbow up a little bit, but that shouldn't matter - he aimed at the head and got it. That would be a suspension of Polak did it to Lidstrom, but since the redwing is the one putting on the hit, we probably won't see a video explanation of the non-suspension.
GOOD CLEAN BODY CHECK?? WHAT?? Clearly hits him in the head first.
Classy guys you have over on your site too. Is this what happens when you let children on the Internet?
Next game the Blues need to pound on Lidstrom, even if it mean taking penalties, the way the Wings pounded on Pietrangelo. It's not like the refs are going to call all the penalties anyway, considering they called none when Pietrangelo was clearly interfered with twice and took a shot to the head the way Abdelkator took a shot to the head, but the Wings player won't wind up with the 3-game suspension Cole received.
They need to run Howard in the next game. Just straight up plow his ass over. Take the penalties. Take the suspension. It's worth it.
We need to do a little Tkachuk to Hasek action.
They had two chances to take out Howard. First, Backes decides to be a gentleman and run into the goal instead of Howard, then I forget who gently bumps him from behind when they could really drop him since he was playing the puck behind the goal. Next time, they should just bury him. There's no sense in playing clean against Detroit. If you're gonna get s*** calls, might as well justify them by actually doing something worth a penalty.
