Look at his head looking right at the puck.
well, I went so far as to make this gif. Explain to me how Stepan is in front of Green and how this is a blind sided hit? No suspension is the right call, but I'm not even sure what the deal is with the fine.
And if you see the hit from the opposite angle it looks like Green runs into Stepan and he is shrugging him off.
This is all because the poster boy is missing significant time due to an incidental collision in the winter classic game.
Im telling everybody. The rules are going to be changed to try and eliminate all sorts of contact.
