Phaneuf headshot on Paille (no suspension talk??)

CBC (who showed the Ference hit as much as possible) have yet to show the Phaneuf hit even once. Are they covering for their team's captain?


It has become so apparent that Canadian media decides what hits should be suspended or not. If there is no (media driven) hype for a hit then there is no suspension.


Apparently Paille was bleeding, but stays on his feet a lot more than Grabovski...
Was it much different than the Ference hit?

So, I just thought we need to represent our guys and bring attention to it. Does anyone have a replay of it?

That's about as much of a headshot as a glove punch in a scrum. I suppose we should review all of those too. And, funny enough, I haven't seen the Canadian media mention anything about suspending players for glove punches in a scrum. SO much bias.

Agreed. Gotta throw the head back and dive like Kadri.


Horrible refereeing in this game so much interference

Phaneuf

If he isn't suspended for his deliberate elbow to the head of Paille, then we know that justice isn't in the corrupt NHL dictionary.

Agreed.

Point of contact was the head (rule 48 violation) AND it caused a visible injury with a cut to the bridge of Paille's nose.

Was it a blatant target? I don't know, Phaneuf is a big guy and sometimes it happens to Chara that his arm comes up on someone just due to the fact that he has 7 inches on them, but it sure as heck looked like a forearm to the face.

CBC replayed the Ference hit about 50 times to manufacture a suspension and indignation. I bet they completely buried this.

I can't fathom how this isn't being discussed.

Amongst the league, and especially among Bruins fans.

Whatever.

This hit was many times worse than Ference's incidental contact that granted him a suspension.

Dion should be out at least a game, or more.

Deliberate elbow to the head, with the primary point of contact being the head.

Suspending him would hurt the Bruins because he is an awful player who is constantly out of position.

Leafs fan here. saw the hit and questioned it myself right away. I never saw a slow mo replay, but at full speed I have to say it looked like a hit to the head to me.

CBC didn't want to get one of their Leaf players suspended, thus the lack of replays, no other explanation.

It's pretty cut and dry if you watch a slo-mo.

CBC did no replay of it. There's zero talk in media.

It looked pretty high to me. The most frustrating part was it appeared the CBC didn't want to show it from different angles when they showed the Ference hit over and over.

Yes. You wanna know why? I'm not a ridiculous biased moronic fan who will blindly lie about it like most fans.

Hell, I'm not even saying its a clean hit at all. I'm saying, WAIT!

CBC did show one replay, but it wasn't a closeup. I looked at it several times on the DVR and it was obviously an illegal hit to the head. Anyone who says it wasn't needs to explain how a man's nose gets cut and starts bleeding out of the blue. Shanny's wheel of justice is indeed unpredictable, but at least one game is warranted in this case, maybe more.

Honestly surprised the NESN clip wasn't up quickly.
