Glad to see he'll make a full recovery. A scary incident for sure.

Another Geoffrion the habs are proud to have. Get well soon Blake! Hopefully you're healthy and back on the ice soon!

You stand up for your teammate by lining him up and drilling him with a hit of your own later in the game - that is the code you speak of, not mauling the guy like a wussy.

Obviously nobody likes seeing one of their own get laid out, but the hockey survived over a century without this stupidity every night. Take the number of the truck, keep it in the back of your mind, and when they opportunity presents itself, show him what it's like. Don't act like pansy and then call it a "code".

clean beautiful hit. Unfortunate that the skate added insult to the skull fracture.

Unfortunate result, but just a ripping hit. Clean, too.

Nice hit but the skates should've been kept down.

Great hit by the way. Hope he recovers fully.
Fighting's part of the game too.

To tell you the truth, I'd rather see somebody get beaten up in a fist fight than reliving a Bertuzzi "incident". If you're gonna target a guy from across the ice, legal or not, be ready to be pummeled.

For a hit like this, I don't hate a teammate going in after the guy for the hit, but I don't like it either. Get his number and gun for him all night long, it's way more effective than starting a scrum. But oh my god what a hit that was. Geoffrion got blown up.

Pretty sure his skates left the ice right after the hit, not before

It's as much a part of the game as any other infraction that results in a penalty.

All for sticking up for teammates, but all the retaliation after big hits is overdone. What ever happened to taking a number and paying it forward?

Having a fist fight with someone is being a pansy? Why don't you go get in a 'pansy' fist fight?

Geoffrion is now out with a fractured noggin. He got injured by a big hit. You can't let a guy injure your teammate like that and get away with it.

The refs could stop those clean hit scrums tomorrow if they actually handed out the proper unsportsmanlike conduct penalties to the players taking part.

A clean hit is a clean hit. Hockey is the only sport where the officiating changes depending on things like "players code" and what time of year it is.

Speaking more in general, when a hit doesn't result in an injury. This would be an instance where I wouldn't mind seeing a scrap as much.

Still though, the logic is pretty shaky.

I think the impact caused the skates to go up.

That wasn't a fight. A fight in hockey s between two willing combatants. That was one guy being a dick and mugging a guy over a clean hit, and it's pathetic.

If you're just going to jump a guy and start throwing punches because a guy threw a clean, legal hit, instead of taking the number and paying it forward like hockey players have done for decades, you're a pansy.

That clip must have cut out the part where Geoffrion's teammates consulted the X-rays, saw the injury, and then decided to maul him. Geoffrion's teammates were too busy mugging Cote to know if he was injured or not.

Agree, I hate these fights after big clean hits. Big hits to me are more exciting than seeing a fight and having to defend yourself from a fight if you do a big hit I think makes some people ease up a little.

Very true, would much rather see a fight than another incident like that.

I wish they handed out these penalties more often. How about instead of fighting the guy, you hit him back or better yet, score a goal.

1) it was a clean hit but a dirty landing.

2) Clean hit scrums is gamesmanship as much as it is 'Sticking up for a teammate.' They are trying to put a thought into the checkers head that checking of any kind will not be tolerated. The fighter is trying to neuter the checker. 'Play like a ***** or I'll beat you like a *****.'

3) I'm a Preds fan, Blake's legacy is Tennessee's as much as he is Montreal's. We want him to succeed. But even I have to call the hit as what it is, a beautiful hipcheck and Blake didn't have his head on a swivel.

Agreed there is something wrong if you don't have the urge to go stand up for your teammate.

Really unfortunate outcome. Happy to hear that his surgery went well and he's recuperating nicely. As with any injury, I hope they monitor him well and don't clear him to play before he's truly ready to.
