Again, I don't think it was blatantly dirty, but anyone who says it was unavoidable is full of it. The problem is not Olver, it's a culture the NHL needs to change. Instead of worrying about whether or not a puck went over the glass or was gloved by a guy at the faceoff dot, focus instead on doing everything possible to cut down on concussions. An easy place to start would be late or borderline late hits.
So, you basically want to ban hitting from the NHL? Every hit can result in injury if the receiving player makes something stupid. It was a good, clean hit and it wasn't borderline late.
