Unless you mean the NHL's rulebook, then yes - if you want to take hitting out of the game, it's retarded.


The principal point of contact was the body/mid-section. There's a video on TSN with Kerry Fraser.

Thanks for posting that link.

When I watched it, it was plain to see why Eller was unconscious before his face hit the ice. His head was torqued significantly from Gryba's shoulder contact.

This will be a tough one for the League to call. As wrong as it feels and the horrible result for Eller and the Habs, I doubt seriously if the NHL suspends Gryba.

I hope I am wrong.
