If you don't agree with the analysts, then you should at least give weight to DS who said it was a hockey play and he didn't have a problem with that hit. Even he commented that Lewis turned late, he wasn't "defenseless" as defined by the rules

Smith, Morris, and Hanzal were dirty though. Hanzal should get a suspension. Smith won't because there's been no precedence and I don't think they'll use playoffs to set it. But I definitely think they should. That was blatant intent to injure. There's nothing hockey to that.
This I agree with 100% Doan's call was kind of BS and I didn't really get how it was a game misconduct. SHould of been a 5 minute and nothing more than that I though as your right Lewis turns and then Doan hits him. Lewis put himself in a spot to be hurt severly and Doan finished a check that he had already started. But the others, those were blatant...
