Thank you for posting this. It was a clean hit, the NHL said so, and Vorachk said so. Now a days anything this is considered a big hit is answered with 5 guys jumping the player. Props on Kronwall and the Wings not fighting and drawing the Power Play. "Back in the day" you laid a good solid clean hit, you didn't have to answer for it. If you did it wasn't cause you were jumped. You were asked to fight later for it and if you could handle a fight you accepted. It was the dirty hits that were responded to back in the day and thats how it should be.
