Staal leaves Canes game due to twisted knee

New York Rangers: Marc Staal suffered a twisted knee on first shift of game which later forced him from game; Torts says: "not real serious, but we'll see"

NYDNRangers: Tortorella: Staal twisted his knee in the first period, got worse as the game went on, him leaving not related to hit by his brother.

Hoping its for precautionary reasons.. This will hurt big time if he it out long term.. Takes some joy out of tonights win..

That was a great hit. The severity is being exaggerated because apparently since they are brothers they are supposed to be best buds, and consider their games together as some special occasion.

If he's out for any extended period of time, Slats will make a trade by tomorrow. BOOK EET.

I hope so because I think without him it's the straw that breaks the camels back.

It seems like Eric Staal is a real ****** bag sometimes, but he's hella competitive, can't really fault him for it.

StapeNewsday: Just watched the replay of Staal on Staal... Pitkanen hooking Marc Staal, distracting his attention. Totally avoidable play by Eric Staal...
StapeNewsday: If an NHL player's BROTHER doesn't respect him enough to hit lower or avoid a blindside hit, what chance does a regular NHLer have?

I tend to agree..

You dont get to be a star player in the NHL without being fiercely competitive. There is the odd exception like Christensen but aside from that...

Them being brothers is important to remember. There's alot of people who will always play the dirty hit card, but I have a hard time believing Eric Staal would go all "intent to injure" on his own flesh and blood.

I took a mental note last Canes game that Eric seemed to go out of his way to really lay into Marc. I really don't get it to be honest. Seemed like he was going so far out of his way to show that the brother thing meant nothing. Or he was just pissed off.

Gotta be honest and say I really couldn't do that to my bro... One hit can change a lot for a player. We've seen plenty of examples.

Yep. Said in the game thread I didn't like the hit.

Had his head down and it was high.

I dont think it is really dirty or fine worthy. But the guy was not looking, and its more of a cheap shot than anything else. Was not necessary.

You have your head down, that's what you get. This is hockey, not ice dancing. The first thing they teach you is keep your head up, and that's why. If it's an elbow, a charge, a stick, that's different. A clean shoulder to the head is the fault of the guy who got hit.

I really don't get it either. I couldn't finish off my brother with any ferocity. Family is forever... Teams aren't... And I'm as big a sports fan than anyone. I would hit him, but with no level of impact that could actually injure the guy. I would know damn well where I was hitting the person too. There are clearly other areas of the body that are more likely to injure.

Marc was in a vulnerable position at the time but it happened so fast and pretty much simultaneously(the hook) that Eric really didn't have time to hold up I think.. IDK..

I was going to post the same thing.

When I saw that, I must say, I was surprised.

He definitely went out of his way...
