I personally think the play was reckless too. I mulled over whether or not it as the same as Brown's hit and there are some key differences in my opinion. Brown actually made contact with the shoulder and his should was square over his body when he laid the hit. That is the reason Rosival wasn't seriously hurt. His shoulder took the initial force of the hit. Brown was also coming head on with Rosival and not laterally like in the Hall/Clutterbuck hit.

I don't think Hall was trying to knee and injure Clutterbuck. That being said, I do think he was trying to level him (think Ricahrds on Booth) and if he had hit him upstairs, we'd probably be looking at a head injury and a suspension for sure. So a reckless play leads to an injury, I think that deserves a suspension.
