i am pretty quick to call a hit dirty and a player disrespectful of his fellow professional. but in this case, the hit was fine. phaneuf was hitting the puck holder. not late and not particularly high. didnt hit sauer's head into the glass or anything. just very bad luck here.
the father's reaction was cheap and angering. but he's probably an uneducated dull man. and if you asked him now, he'd probably feel bad about it. i don't know about phaneuf's reaction at the time, but if his father is anything to go-by, i'd expect it was poor as well.
but, as for the hit, i'd say it was ok. and as for the injury, it was sad bad luck and i hope sauer gets better soon.
