Props to the ref for not calling any penalty when he's 6 feet away and looking right at it. That takes guts.
I will say, at least it wasn't ridiculously hard impact.
It was a dirty hit, Chucky will get a game or two; but all said, on the dirty scale it's still fairly low. Some people are making a mountain out of a mole hill... and that likely means Tkachuk is doing his job.

Ref was too busy impersonating a turtle to notice. Imagine the league will be taking a good look though. Pretty blatant.

The closest ref doesn't look over until after the elbow, fwiw

Dirty play from a dirty player. Won't get suspended though. Teflon protection.

Deflection. They have difficulty admitting that Tkachuk is already the dirtiest player in the league.

Unlike Cooke, Tkachuk is actually good at hockey. He is more like Corey Perry junior.

You're going to see that in the NHL more and more.
Chucky's a rat, I can admit that as one of his biggest fans, but there aren't rat deterrents in the league anymore, these guys can do this with impunity.

That was a pretty ugly elbow there. Pretty hard to argue it was accidental contact. Maybe he didn't want to aim for the head but damn he got him good.

League will take a look I'm sure. I wish we had the ref cam, as maybe from that angle it looked more like chest contact first?

Not saying it is or isn't. Clearly looks bad. Just saying it's not 100% clear either from the above the net cam or the center ice cam.

Pretty much. no regard, new gen of player that can hide behind refs and the instigator too. Fantastic.

Yep. Department of Rat Safety's most important duty is to protect rat players by penalizing any action that might deter dirty play. As such, we're left with players who deliver dirty hits and low blows when refs aren't watching running wild with impunity. Anyone who dares to stand up to them gets charged with instigator.

Dirty hit. Will almost certainly be suspended.

This thread is gonna go on for 15ish pages and I predict that by page 8 it'll spiral into an Edmonton-Calgary hatefest as Flames and Oilers main board threads always do.

I hope you're not suggesting it wasn't an elbow to the face. That is pretty conclusive. The refs view of it we obviously can't say...But it's a pretty conclusive elbow to the chin.

Sadly any penalty will depend on whether if Doughty is hurt or not. I don't agree that a dirty play can result in a lenient punishment if a guy is not seriously hurt, but that's the way the NHL has been determining the length for a while now.

Doughty is back for the 2nd so at most it's a game or two, but more than likely a fine.

For ****'s sake, just stop it already.

It's a dirty hit. What your statement translates to is "I want to try as hard as I can to find an angle that doesn't completely incriminate my own player".

It's obvious from the provided video what happened. It's a dirty play. You can admit it.

Shame that Burke talks big about rats taking over and he's got the biggest one on his team. What a fraud.
We shall see, I don't think he gets a suspension.

I hope Doughty is okay.
