I'm not sure how an enforcer is supposed to help that type of injury.
Did he actually suffer a concussion on the Sarich hit? Or did they just tweak the shoulder injury he had been playing through?
Falls awkwardly in a fight that he instigates. Not much an enforcer can do about that.
Just a good, clean hit. It's unfortunate that his shoulder was injured on the play but an enforcer shouldn't have to step in.
Hall steps on a puck and a teammate steps on his face. Freak accident.
Hall loses his balance right before the hit. If he doesn't, it's probably just a routine hit. I think Hall smacking his head on the ice caused more damage than Sarich did.
