True, but I'll say this: I absolutely HATE the entire notion of "finishing" your check. I don't ever remember hitting anyone after they passed/shot/lost the puck, and I just don't get why it's okay to do in the pros. Feel free to blast me, but if the NHL wants to cut down on these kinds of injuries, they need to attack the culture and the silly "code" in hockey.

It was a legal hit, but completely unnecessary, and borderline late.
