Here Patrice stopped short of the wall and at that point Jones had no shot to stop going forward. There's no doubt in my mind he wasn't trying to hit him where he did.
You're talking out of your ass again.
Bergeron stopped on a dime with his back towards Jones. After Bergeron has stopped, Jones extends his arms through Bergeron's back and drives him into the boards head first. His momentum didn't even carry him into Bergeron, and it wasn't a bang bang play at all. Bergeron had his back to him and Jones drove him into the boards with his arms.
I'm sure Jones did not intend to break his neck, but you have to know better than to do something like that. This is how careers end. This is something that the NHL has worked hard to eliminate from the game, and this is something that has absolutely no place in hockey at any level.
