Again, that's Burrows. He's going to throw that hit a minute into the game, in the 2nd period and with less than a minute to go.
I like that kind of player. I like a physical brand of hockey. I prefer to have our guys finish off checks then peel away.
Especially in the offensive zone. Hits like that wear defenceman down.
Hits like that are meant to hurt the opponent. Something I do not, nor have I ever had a problem with.
Hurting a guy with a check and trying to injury a guy to me are not one and the same.
An elbow to the head like Murray on Kostka tonight in the TB-MON game is a deliberate attempt to injure. This hit by Burrows was intended to hurt McD.
To me, there's a difference. Some may not see the difference, that's ok.
Just because he may not have intended to hurt McD doesn't mean the hit wasn't a cheap shot. There was no need to get his hands up and to sandwich McD at that point in the game.
I have a huge problem with the bolded portion of your quote. Sorry, I don't want my guys throwing hits that are meant to hurt opponents. Finishing checks is one thing. That wasn't a finished check. He got his hands up to his face.
