Yes the Gauthier hit could have been nasty had the positioning not been what it was.. But, you can't go by the what if's.. I love hockey, I love the hitting, the checking, but these kind of calls, and even the one on Umberger, should be penalties.. There are so many great hits in the game, none of which are career ending hits.. But yet we will penalize a guy for hooking? That amazes me... Call the shots that are career ending shots, not this b.s hooking crap... just my two cents.. I personally do not Gauthier's hit was all that bad, but of course, I look at it as the guy wasn't hurt.. But, after Umberger, I am thinking differently about the rules.. Bertruzzi's hit should have made the nhl wake up and realize that nhl isn't any fun if players are getting paralized...
