I re-watched the hit 10 times last night on my dont tell me to go watch it again, it was a dirty play
Cannot agree more. I have a PVR as well. And if people would have had the chance to review it closely, like I said before, there was an initial hit close to the circles that sent D'Ago off balance, then Regehr used that to send him flying hitting him off-balance from behind. Probably the worst thing you can do since there's is no chance a guy could protect himself.

So D'Ago did NOT put himself in that position....Regehr did that for him. So I couldn't care less about the initial hit.....but hitting a guy from behind that is clearly off-balance? Those are the most dangerous hits.....

As far as Markov's knee, well he's not known for that. Still, while he wasn't aiming Phaneuf on purpose and wanting to injure himself, I think that he got beat and stuck the knee out a little. Still if Phaneuf knew it was a dirty shot, he would've gone bezerk, which he didn't. Even in the end of the brawl, Markov was close by Phaneuf for a little while, if Phaneuf wanted to kill him, he would've been able to even if a referee was close by.
