No he wasn't even taking a wack at the US player. He was off balance and bringing his stick across his body but it flung off the stick of the USA game and up into his face.

Nope. Don't believe that for a second.

Reinhart in a split second thinking genius.
He looks at him and then whacks him in the face. Where the hell do you see his stick sliding up the other stick? Or even the glove?

Watch it closer...someone even posted a 1080p version. Griffin's stick is going across and sorta down then they hit sticks around the blades and his shoots straight up the stick, even grazes the USA guy's glove and then hits his head.

Ya, thanks, guess I should have said this. There was intent to slash, whether it was to intentionally slash him in the head or not is anyones guess. Apparently the IIHF thought it was. I say 1-2 games would have been fine.

I have watched the sequence 20+ times trying to see what you two are saying happened and I don't see it. I don't see the sticks touching and I'm not even sure where the glove would come into play. In HD fullscreen all I see is him looking at Trocheck and whacking him in the face.

Looking at him? He doesn't even look at him until the very end... their sticks make contact down at their blades.

That stick


And this glove




You aren't seeing it, because you don't want to see it.

OMG how can anybody justify 4 games for that play when considering all of the other contentious plays in this tournament and the penalties handed out.

Just one example is the hit on Wotherspoon, far more dangerous and could have led to a much more serious injury. The Russian player actually alters his direction to hit him from behind and and drive him headfirst into the boards. One game suspension compared to 4. It's totally unjust.

You can see the awkward change in the angle from the initial form of the slash to the final hit to the head.

Watching again it may not have hit his glove, the angle made it look that way, but he sure as hell hit the blade of his stick, you can see it about to happen right here.

The American brings his stick around after the puck is clearly gone why does he do that? Just asking.

No suspension in 2006 for this, though. Wonder why.

It looked like one of those reactionary wacks and it just so happened that the US player's face was hip-level at the time. He definitely meant to slash him, but probably not in the face.

Whether he tried to slash or not, there was no intent to hit his face...the stick rode up the american's stick. It is worthy of a high sticking penalty for not taking care of your stick, not a 4 game suspension. Ridiculous.
Biggest suspension ever given, maybe not. Now that I know he cannot serve it in the WHL and the IIHF can make whatever decisions it wants. I am going to say the 7 game suspension they allowed to happen to Noesen is the most severe one I have seen them do.

Yes it's a highstick and should of been a 2min penalty. (no blood or 4mins) but to give one of the worst suspensions in world JR history is a joke. This is hockey and it wasn't intentional imo. 1 game would of been fine, just to prove a point.

The more I look at it, the more I think it is too much. I believe a game would have been fine.

Slash was definitely on purpose you can see it on his face, but I don't think he would have slashed if he knew his face was there.
