... Think you need to take another look at what you're saying. I know that there's bound to be a ton of over-reaction the day after something like this takes place, but damn.
People get hit; they get injured. That's part of the game. It wasn't a dirty hit; in fact there's a case to be made that Drew initiated the movement toward the collision. If Doughty would have laid a hit on one of the Hurricanes like that, we'd be praising him. I'm sure Doughty's learned to be more careful out there; to not be caught sleeping when skating over the opponent's blue line. That's a no-no. No question he knew this going in, of course, but apparently he needed a reminder. Know where everyone is, and keep your head on a swivel out there.
