I don't mind him playing physical, but as seems to be the popular comment so far: physical and reckless are two different things. Hope the Swedish kid is okay.
Not disagreeing with you Sore. Yeah that one went unpenalized. There is no reference as to where the puck was in relation to the lateness of the the hit on Maata. He was clearly late on this mornings hit and he knows being watched by IIHF refs, that gets called all day long. The one game suspension from last years stick tap was ticky tack, at least in North American standards.

Late hit (injury), Europe, get the book thrown.
