Enlighten me, all those opposed to how he handled the play....
In my opinion it was a textbook/perfect hit on the forecheck........an absolutely perfect hockey hit in every sense.
He destroyed the guy but lets face it, if he wanted to be dirty it would have been easy, just put up your elbow and that guy would of been out cold into next week, seizuring all the way.
Even if the slovak player gets hit to a lesser extent in that position/situation he still gets smoked and mosy likely is bleeding, concussed and wondering what hit him.
You pretty much summed it up.. either he purposefully avoids him and tries to make a play without contact while also possibly letting him skate right by and on an odd man rush (which is why you're taught as a little kid to take the body), or he hits him cleanly which he did and therefore stopped the other team from breaking out.
