That entire replay shows Clifford looking to demolish a guy who didn't see him coming. Here is where we are different. I don't think it OK to finish a check like that. I think it is dirty. Some people get off on plays like that, Lord knows I have played against enough ***** like that. Its a fundamental philosophy difference. Play the game with some honor. Finish your checks when needed its part of the game, but ease up on guy who is vulnerable.
Brule was vulnerable because he put himself in that position! The FUNDAMENTAL rule of checking hockey is to not admire your pass. Brule did not follow that rule.
And by the way, Kopitar was knocked out of the game and I still wasn't mad about the hit because Kopitar was caught admiring his pass.
