Those hits from the Blackhawks in that second game this year were way worse. Also have seen worse offenses to the head from other guys in other games so far this year. Suspensions from them: ZERO. Only suspension I have seen is on that jackass Rypien.
So much for the NHL cracking down on head shot and unnecessary blind side hits.
(And yes, I am quite upset at the leagues inability to properly enforce their rules and regulations)
This and don't forget Fistric's "legal" hit to Franzen in the Dallas game. Selanne saw him there and did nothing to protect himself. What's Kronner supposed to do let him go by with the puck or dive at his knees? Good hit, f*** the Ducks.
The call on Perry was not weak. That f***** knew where he was on the ice, was leaving for a line change and tried to take Franzen out of the play. I don't believe for a second that it was unintentional and that Perry didn't see him. It was a pick plain and simple. Interference. Good call ref!
Kind of hard when Abdelkader and Ericsson are both out injured. Datsyuk, Z or Lidstrom should not fight. Miller, Stuart, Janik or that joke of a defensemen Holland just signed Salei should have stepped up.
At this point, I can't wait to get Ericsson back, Salei is a joke.
Haven't been impressed with Salei either but someone should've done something, even if it's just drilling Fistric into the boards. It ain't like it was Ott or Barch smacking Mule, it was Fistric's little ass. Exactly the kind of s*** Babs was talking about, non-tough guys acting tough against the Wings.
