Watch 0:43

Lup's shoulder hits Hedman's shoulder and then hits his head.

Not even a hearing IMO

The main board thread on this is actually hilarious. It's like people didn't even watch the video, they saw that it was a Leaf player and said 5+ games.

The world of delusion some of these people live in astounds me. I completely agree that it's a hit the NHL wants to avoid, and could warrant a possible 1-3 game suspension, but to suggest any more than that is simply inept.

0 or 1 game imo. First time offence + Hedman returned a couple minutes later, 2+ games would surprise me.

Lupul is essentially Paul Bernardo on the main forums.

I don't really see the principal point of contact being the head there. Really looks more like shoulder to chest. Kinda blindside I guess.

Boys, lets call it how it is.

It was a blindeside hit.

In saying that, it didn't look like his shoulder made actual contact to the head.

So I am guessing 1 game.

Honestly, it's difficult to read.

The amount of hate that this team gets in ANY circumstance actually blows my mind. I truly don't understand it. Most of the people, even those who have absolutely no connection whatsoever to this team jump at every opportunity to bash them.

I cannot wait for the day that this team becomes a contender, because this entire board is going to be so ******** about it. We're all patiently waiting for that day, and it's going to be glorious.

2 games at most. Certainly a hit that should be suspended though according to the rules.

It was his shoulder - IMO 1 game - there's no place for this bs in the game.. any kind of head shots, should bring a mandatory suspension.

He might get a game for that but damn, Hedman sure isn't very bright. He was actually FACING Lupul when he was coming in to make the hit, but he was admiring his pass. This is a guy who's already had two concussions in the NHL...

Were you not around for the days of "you bought your team", "Sundins only talked about because he's in Toronto", "x player is overrated cuz they play for the Leafs", "ottawas got their number this year"????

Possibly yes, but Shanny is so very inconsistent. That being said. He's a Leaf. Example setting time for the NHL.

Haha man, I was lurking for about a year or two before I registered so I'm very well used to it but somehow when stuff like this happens it blows my mind.

I don't get why people from certain fanbases that aren't anywhere near Toronto just have an inherent hate for the Leafs. It blows my mind that people would actively route against a team that has no effect on them.

Either way, I'm only vocal about it on this evening due to alcohol but it just makes me laugh. Everyone is going to be so sad when Toronto is consistently making playoffs.

I have seen worse hits go un-suspended

Hedman strolls up the ice with their heads down admiring his pass, what did he expect, for the leafs to clear a path for him?

Wouldn't be surprised either way. Hopefully no suspension though.

Geesh, look at Lupul's feet at 0:34 and 0:42, and it almost looks like he pushes off his right skate leaving his feet for a momentary 'hop' as he throws the check.

It's not clear because there's a Tampa player skating through the frame in the foreground at the moment this is happening, but this makes it even worse.

Yeah, I was just coming to say it looked like a half jump. I think it was get a suspension of 1 game. Anything more than 2 is ridiculous.

10,000 fine in my opinion, simply because he has no history and Hedman returned to the game.

1 Game at worst.

Looking at the replay Hedman has absolutely no ****ing clue where he is on the ice.


31-33 seconds Hedman decides its a great idea to look at his pass and ignore the hockey play and position he is on the ice.
