I don't think it's jealousy as much as it is a dangerous hit regardless of who did it. Last week Toews a captain and a leader stood up and dropped the gloves fairly with another leader. That's what true leaders do, Toews didn't take the cheap way out and throw a questionable hit. don't use the excuse Hall doesn't have to fight, Toews didn't either (Hall isn't half the player Toews is) but Toews did to get his team going.
Even if Hall is only half the player Toews is that still makes him better than any player on the Leafs not named Kessel. Go troll another fanbase and stop with your insane rants. Or do you want to try and say Kadri is equal to RNH again?
Open ice hits can deliver over 550+ lbs of force. Actually pretty similar to a car crash.
Glad you posted that sports science clip. A field i am quite familiar with. Again we are talking about the hall on Clutterbuck hit. That wasn't a big hit. That hit would not generate 500 lbs of force.
The reason why it got really bad was he was blindsided. Not ready for it at all. The key factor here is the point of impact which was their legs. Not body to body.
It's one thing to hit a guy when you're forcing your whole body upon another versus two guys skating at each other both bracing for hits. If Clutterbuck braced for it I bet both guys are injured. Hall is lucky Clutterbuck wasn't ready for that hit.
How do all those anti-Hansen suspension people look now about their "No suspension if he was a star player" baseless argument?
Upon viewing, it seemed to me like Hall misdirected a hip check. The importance of the suspension, in my opinion, much like Hansen is that players need to be responsible for their actions no matter what they say they were trying to do.
