Oops...missed that.

He did play the Montreal series (5 games) - he sat out all of the Pittsburgh series.

Kariya had his back to Pronger, had both skates on the ice, got hit in the back and was knocked to the ice. Again.....Turgeon was out the rest of the playoffs, Kariya came out for his next shift like nothing ever happened.

So hate Pronger. Be my guest, hate him until your cheeks turn blue....but don't even try comparing his hit on Kariya to Hunter's hit on Turgeon. There's no comparison.

Since you keep harping on the same thing over and over again, I was gonna let it go but oh well...

I ask you again, did you actually see the Hunter hit on Turgeon (Pierre, not Sylvain) with your own eyes? Hunter did NOT take strides to reach Turgeon.

And the point isn't whether Turgeon was off balance or whether Kariya had his feet planted. The issue here is that just like Hunter, Pronger's hit was late and well after the whistle had gone. They were both out of frustration, executed by bullies who were scored upon.

As I stated before, except for the outcome, there isn't much of a difference between the actions of two defeated men.

Case closed. Quit bringing it back up!
