Mursak breaks his ankle. Next meeting, Detroit sits their all their stars. 3rd, 4th line and AHLers playing. Stalberg gets a knee to knee hit. Smith gets his head nearly taken off. Start low, finish high. Kronwall has perfected this.
Forrest Gregg / Charles Martin anyone?
It looked innocent enough on TV as Stalberg was just trying to stay onside. At ice level things may have looked differently however as Q was not happy. Thankfully it is not nearly as bad as he had thought.
As for Babcock. He seems like a nice enough bloke away from the game .... then he opens his mouth about the opposition, which often comes across as rather bitter and sarcastic. And you're right about Kronwall.
