Couldn't disagree more.

if it was a odd man rush, then yes, bad read. But he had the angle, made the hit, knowing full well where other players were on the ice.

In fact, with his partner close by, i thought defensemen are taught to take the puck carrier, separate him from the puck, allowing his partner to retrieve the puck.

If anything it WAS a 'smart high hockey IQ' hit.

The hit to the head is the only thing that would need to be remedied on the hit. That could be a suspendable hit, though, like the Bogo hit on Eakins, the puck carrier has to look out for number 1 as well.
