Now he was not, because he had the passed the puck. He appears to have had some sort of misplaced trust in that canadians could actually behave somewhat sportsmanlike, but apparantely he was wrong. I think Petterson knows better now.
That is mere speculation. You have no idea what Petterson was thinking and if he suddenly made himself more vulnerable the second and a half after he released the puck. The fact that the hit was a clear shoulder to shoulder hit that dislocated his shoulder is FACT.

Like the great Sherlock Holmes says: "Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts."
