You'd think with how long he stayed down it was an ACL.
So is thigh contusion a fancy word for charlie horse?

Seriously I love how there are those politically correct fans in every fan base, well at least online anyhow. This is a guy who's made a living on injuring our team constantly and you're now able to sleep better because he's not too seriously injured?

I could care less if he's not injured or done for the year, as a rival team that's constantly taken liberties on our team and gotten no supplemental discipline for it I'm happy to see it go the other way for once. Seriously some fans are as soft as the friggen Oilers.

Hall's hit last night reminded me of this Messier hit

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmfMQ8wx5k0

I know it's not the same hit but this is the most memorable hit by Messier in my head. =)

my concern is that the league suspends 'reckless plays' like this so quickly (which Hall deserves, no doubt)... but somehow had no problem with Cooke recklessly lifting his skate into the air and stomping down with it. "youre suppose to be responsible for yourself and the other players on the ice... please lift your skate blade into the air whenever you want and use your leg as a lever to hook guys into the boards. that seems safe and smart."

great league... idiots.

also, never going to feel bad when Cooke, Clutterbuck, Tootoo, Carcillo, Avery (RIP), Ruutu's, etc... get hurt in a career-threatening sense.

I guess so. I've been saying for awhile that Clutterbuck is an embellisher.

Well I was obvious NOT knee-on-knee as the Wild fans were stating otherwise Clutterbucks knee would be injured. Clutterbuck took the impact on the thigh likely from Hall's thigh or more likely his hip. Halls knees are too low to his Clutter's thigh like that. This information should indicate that it was a not all that dirty of a hit, perhaps a tad late. Clutter was reaching for the puck with his skate which made this worse. Hall caught him on the thigh while HC was extending his leg. At that speed it was just a hit that was slightly off otherwise HC blows up. At worst this is a marginal hit. But Hall plays for Edmonton not Toronto so he may get one game. Anything more is uncalled for, but really there should be no suspension.

Contusion is a fancy word for bruise, is it not. That's even better, IMO!

If Duncan Keith's deliberate elbow to the head gets only 5 games, I'd think that Hall's hit shouldn't get more than 1.

FYI that is TSN's hockey insider
http://www.tsn.ca/tsn_talent/bio/?fid=81


An integral part of TSNís comprehensive hockey coverage, Darren Dreger breaks news, files stories that take viewers inside the game, and is part of panel discussions and debates. He also appears on SportsCentre and That's Hockey, and contributes regularly to TSN.ca.

His lengthy hockey broadcast experience includes hosting Ottawa Senators, Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs games, hosting NHL pre-game shows, game analysis for the IIHF Men's World Hockey Championship, and was an integral part of hockey broadcasts at the Olympic Winter Games.

Dreger is no stranger to the family having worked at CTV Winnipeg from 1993 to 1997 as a sports anchor and hockey reporter. Born in Red Deer, Alta., Dreger grew up in Saskatchewan and broke into the broadcast industry in 1987 at CJGX Radio in Yorkton, Sask.

Well I know if a decision is no suspension I suppose that's news on the suspension. However saying there is news on the suspension has to mean he's getting suspended no?

Damn writing and picking every angle is like writing legal documents.

Stupid Hit? probably.....with 2 mins left in the game while losing 3-1

Dirty Hit? Don't think so, head was down, all this BS I hear that it was a knee on knee....spare me, Hall threw out the Hip, its called a HIP CHECK.

Clutterbuck has been dishing these type of hits out on a yearly basis and while he played his Junior Hockey.....So he basically got what was coming his way.

P.S. If Giordano gets a fine, for a "slew foot" that leaves a player defenseless falling backwards (hitting the head on the ice)....Then I see no reason for Hall to get a suspension here....tit for tat.

I've never seen a member of the media so giddy with regards to a potential suspension. The Wild's Michael Russo is being a real ***** about this on Twitter and there seems to be some denial regarding Clutterbuck's reputation as well.

No kidding. Of all the things to show concern about, people care about a boo boo on a millionaire athlete. On the other team. Whose M.O. is to hit to hurt. Who ****ing cares ?!?

Hahaha... oh Staples.

David Staples ‏@dstaples
I say 2 games for Hall. Me, I'd give him 5. But I'd have given guy 10 for hit on Tarasenko. #Oilers.

The Oil Man ‏@tubfullyet
@dstaples I suppose you agree with the instigator rule too. #FoundAnotherVagina

David Staples ‏@dstaples
@tubfullyet No, don't agree with that one, actually. But I'd kick guys out of game/suspend for fighting.

Outside of the Edmonton media everybody else seems to be defending Clutterbuck today. It's cute.
