We could go around on this issue all day as to whether it was intentional or not,only Ryan Whitney himself knows that answer. Whether it was intentional(didn't look that way to me)or not, I highly doubt there was a deliberate attempt to injure Ovechkin...if you want to see a an intentional spear with deliberate attempt to injure,that would be the spear Messier gave to Strbak.
Over on the main board,there's actually people calling Whitney the dirtiest player in the league now because of his spear on Ovechkin. Sad really.
Ignorant more like. Uhhh, let's see... there's Marchment, there's McCarty, Kasparaitis (God love 'im), Hatcher, Domi, Barnaby, Peca, some might say McClaren... I mean seriously how much time do they have to be proven clueless?
Hell he's not even the dirtiest player on the Pens now (Cairns). All of those guys are much more prone to giving cheap shots than Whitney is. To even compare him, based on one incident, is bordering on ********.
