Please allow me to play the Devils Advocate if you don't mind.

Read many an article and listened to many an interview where it was said that the one big difference between today's hockey and the hockey of yesterday is the lack of RESPECT players have for one another.

Now keeping that in mind, re-watch the hit by Camara and tell me he could not of let up knowing full well he could see the guy with his head down looking for the puck.

Could he not of slowed down and just let the guy kind of skate into him, would the outcome of getting control of the puck not of been the same?

I understand it's the responsibility of every player to have his head up, but is that hit no different then if someone hits someone from behind ? The player is still defenseless.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the hit and jumped out of my seat and yelled. But just as quick I grabbed the crucifix that hangs around my neck and prayed the kid that was laying on the ice knocked out would be okay.

So my question is: Could this hit make you believe that RESPECT in the game has diminished ?
