I used Chucky for this as he is his linemate and was first to go at Gryba.

Eller is one of my favorite players. When I saw the video replay on TSN and while its not a very clear picture, its clear that Eller's head snaps back before anything else. So for the TSN panel to unanimously and immediately call it a clean hit deserves an entry in the pandering hall of shame. They are panderers at the best of times but in cases like this, common decency should prevail otherwise its a total lack of integrity.

God speed to full recovery Lars.

It's obviously a ****ing headshot or what did Eller just ****ing feint on his own before hitting the ice? He was unconscious immediately after the hit.. TO THE HEAD.

And a big **** you to Diaz who not only cost us the game in my opinion with terrible defense but was the puppetmaster of this ginormous **** up.

The media has warped the hockey world's view on this hit by automatically calling it clean. Everyone seems to want to ignore the blatant fact that his head viciously snaps backwards and that he was unconscious before he hits the ice. Honestly it's like it's the "in" thing to say it was a clean hit.

No matter the decision on Gryba, I hope Eller's recovery is short and complete.

My question is, why did White get 5 games for almost the same thing?

I've always said, they need to eliminate open ice hits. Hockey purists will argue, but its the only way to eliminate these kind of injuries. Guys are too big and equipment is too heavy these days.

So a rookie was the only guy to go after Gryba.....Good on Galchenyuk. Everyone else is pathetic.

Huh?

Am I missing something here? Zednik had his 2 best years(back to back 50 point years) after McLaren elbowed him in the head in the playoffs in 2002.

Were you expecting them to clear the bench?

It looked to me like the contact was with the body and he hit his face on the ice. Is there a freeze frame showing contact to the head? If not it will be hard to suspend Gryba. Just curious

Good on Galchenyuk for going after Gryba, just wish Prust were still on their line and thus on the ice when it happened.

Sucks that this happened just as Eller was stringing together some improving games.

If Eller continued to play like this, and if Galchenyuk started to be dominant at center, a trade of Plekanec or Desharnais was in the cards. In my eyes, that is a good future for the Habs. Eller and Gachenyuk plus one of the two others as a 1-2-3. (my preference would be to keep Plekanec, but he is worth obviously a lot more on the trade market)

Now, we will have to wait and see.

On me dit qu'il ne faut pas s'inquiéter de l'état de santé de Lars Eller. Reste que la prudence est de mise. #SériesRDS


Good stuff

Open ice hits aren't the problem. That's what makes this game awesome.

What they need to do is widen the ice to give these big players more space and more options. Then we would see less dangerous hits. A hybrid ice that is 90 feet wide (NHL is 85 - gives 2.5 feet extra on each side which is more than an average body width). I think that would alleviate some problems.

I hope that Shanahan shows that the head is the major point of contact to shut up those TSN retards..

They said clean just to be cool.
