Wonder how many people that will hate this Swedish team now...
People can't stand these kind of things, even tho it's perfectly legal. I'd say those people will cause those hard charge hits death one day.
Which would suck, because it's not like you see it very often. It's just an extra bonus
Mostly Europeans *****ing about it...

Reason: filter circumvention
I don't care if it's clean, it's just bad form in a game like that. Latvia isn't going to the QF, Sweden is. Just play it out with the intensity the scenario warrants. Do you want to put a guy in hospital in a game like that?
No need for punishment, I just think it's not what a good guy would do in a situation like that.
Wow to all the people that think he left his feet do you play the game? or have you ever? His feet where on the ice until the moment where his shoulder went into to that guy like a mack truck!! Please do not try to take checking out of the game!! I had to teach my son and his team to take and give checks the right way, and some of them got ran over guess what they did not piss and moan about it!!!! they got up and knew better the next time. it is a part of the game!!!
I'll never understand why wingers keep on going up the boards like that when Kronwall is on the ice.
The guy he flattened plays in the Belorussian league, he's probably not as familiar with Kronwall's antics as other guys, besides it's a meaningless game in the preliminary round so he probably didn't figure that someone would try to concuss him like that
They have nice try he takes it just as well as he gives it. and does not get up and slash or hack or try to fight either.
This is absolutely not true. Kronwall would prefer to be scored on than receive a check and plays the game with those priorities in mind. On the rare occasion he doesn't have time to give the puck to the opponent so he can get out of the way, he lays on the ice like he's dead.
There's also the bit about hiding between referee's legs when confronted eye to eye, which is his patented move.
I don't really understand why anyone would decide to injure someone on a non-rival club, in a largely decided game against a team that can't beat you and has no future in the tournament. It's completely pointless.
Remember that Cherry rant where he didn't like Torres running a rookie in a meaningless game? This is that, but much worse.
