As for him leaving his feet, he did but he didn't jump. To make a body check with your shoulder you have to come off the ice somewhat so your skates don't dig in to the ice.

It looked like the Torres hit but is was not. Neil had a $1000 fine in 2003 for a check that was borderline. That's it.
Okay, I'll take your word for it. I only saw the replay right after it happened.

Neil is so much like Avery its not even funny, this is where we could have used him. Sen's grinders are really frustrating the Rangers and getting them off their game. That was Avery's whole purpose.
