So, just philosophically speaking, I don't think you'll find many Penguins fans having sympathy for Tavares or thinking it was a questionable hit.
I was hoping to just use it as an example of the type of hit and not the entire basis of whether people think THAT particular instance was fine or not. However, most of the people in here are only commentating on the Letang vs JT hit which doesn't really reply to the true intent of this thread. Does this type of hit potentially lead to injury? Yes, no and why?
