Sucks it happened and sucks it happened to Sauer who was quickly becoming a staple on our blue line, but things happen in contact sports. Doesn't make Phaneuf a "jackass" or a "dick", it makes him a guy doing his job for his team.

Were you up in arms when Staal laid Stajan the **** out a few seasons ago? I doubt it since it didn't adversely impact the Rangers. You, like most other Ranger fans, were most likely defending Staal for making a clean, enormous hit that - just unfortunately - sent Stajan back to the Middle Ages.
The hit on Sauer doesn't make Phaneuf a jackass. Other events have elevated him to that level.
