It's not his or Pracey's fault he got done in by a cheap shot artist.
I think the talk about him being a risk is in relation to his size, and that he may have a reckless playing style that his body isn't really suited for.
It was as much of a cheap shot, as it was Joey skating through the middle of the ice with his head down. It reminded me of the Moore hit on Naslund. These are the risks with smaller players. What part of their body is going to get hit if their leaning over slightly, or if they're looking down?
