Not close to downie or boulerice in terms of intent, but Jones didnt let up either. The way the play was developing, he was going to have trouble avoiding contact but he definitley gave it his all and followed through as if bergeron wasnt facing the glass.
Im pretty concerned for bergeron, he didnt seem to come to during the entire process and they showed him out on the stretcher as he was coming off. Didnt see any movement whatsoever and he had his uniform and shoulder pads cut off. Completely limp. Hopefully he is okay.
In terms of suspension, im thinking jones is looking at something less than downie, but still significant. Maybe 10 games? 15?
Flyers fans have a case to say it wasnt in the same ball park as other incidents this year but realistically it was a no respect hit.
Also, this is getting bad for the flyers as an organization. I dont believe for a second they encourage this type of play but people were already making accusations with the kesler incident. Will be interesting to see what their brass have to say after the game.
