I think, not 100% sure, that that was the first time I've exclaimed, "what the **** was that you ****ing ********er?" at the very top of my lungs this season. "Whoa, settle down ****head." was the response from my roommate. **** her and her Sens.
I like Carlo as I met him in '03 at the WJC and he had and still has a lot of potential but if he keeps getting hurt and pulls stupid shenanigans like that, why bother?
Although he did hit Koivu from behind and deserved 2 minutes, I don't think he deserves a suspension because he didn't take a run at him. Imagine if he did though, he would have broken his neck and rearanged his own face pretty good.
no even remotely worthy of even consideration for a suspension. both players where pretty much stationary. reminds me of the hit on Higgins a few games back. a 2 minute penalty and nothing more. if Carlo was skating full speed and hit from behind like that maybe then there would be a case but probably not since Hollweg did just that and didnt recieve any additional discipline.
I remember watching that play and it looked like Koivu had heard a small voice in his head just saying "Duck!" and, as he did so, Coliacovo executed a perfect faceplant into the boards. (technical difficulty: 10.0).
