It was a dangerous play. Yeah.
Repeat offender. Yeah.
Ten years ago this hit wouldn't even have been an issue. This league is too soft. McDonagh is fine, should have just let the teams have some tenacity towards each other, not step in everytime the physicality steps up.
Ten Years ago this hit would have started a nasty line brawl. The problem is that too many guys feel like they can get away with this @#$# now!
Somebody will get really hurt or even worse out there at some point.
The players no longer have the ability to police themselves. The league will under do it and some one will pay a serious price or over do it and really hurt the game.
Just my two cents.
