Of course though he is now Canuck property so you guys instantly hate anything he'll do. All we've heard from HF boards are the Canucks are soft & they need grit... well guess what? It looks like we've got it!
I agree the guys head was down, so he is to blame to. My point is players should have more respect. Kassian could still have nailed him when the guy had his head down. But just because the guy has hit head down doesnt give Kassian the right to leave his feet and head hunt. The Scott Stevens era is over. Players understand the gravity of a concussion, so why go out to deliver them. What goes around is gunna come around
You can still nail guys with their head down. Just dont murder him with a elbow/jump, its just as easy to deliver a solid check shoulder first with feet planted
And the Canuck comment is untrue. I feel strongly about all hits like this.
