He hit him in front of the shoulder, didn't touch the head, did not drive thru/finish the check, appeared to be more of a hard push to the ice. Granted Hall was looking the other way admiring his pass. No problem with Clutz getting a penalty on this one. But not really a dirty play.
I agree, but frankly Clutterback history is irrelevant. IMO, Hall hit was reckless but unintentional and deserves a small 1or 2 games suspension. More so considering that it looks like Clutterback didn't get seriously injured. For a similar hit on Paajarvi, Hartnell got a minor and no suspension.
