That hit was almost identical but even worse. I say identical because Hartnell let up, he clearly led with his knee but withdrew and tried to hit with his shoulder. I say worse because he actually cought less of MPV with his hip than Hall did. If you look at the Hall hit almost all contact was actually with Halls hip, not knee.
any way, if Hartnell gets nothing for that, Hall shouldn't get a thing. Any time a player has to turn to hit some one you will see his knee out. If the knee is withdrawn when the hit occurs it is fine. it is whether or not the player follows through with the knee. like Marchment use to do. Hall didn't do that. To me, end of story, no suspension.
