Fans that see this and are mad about the suspension must not be watching the same video I am.

This video clearly shows Drurys head was hit first. Head shots aren't illegal, but the puck is way behind him.

He wasn't even receiving a pass.

seems like a recurring theme. Isn't this the 3rd time this year a Flame accidentally concussed a player? Seems like a few similarities in each story

1) the flame player is known for tough physical play and he had a momentairy oopsie - just crossed the line a little bit

2) the guy geting hit (oksopo, souray, and drury) all happen to be one of the other teams top players. No goon on goon action.

3) all 3 were direct hits to the head (2 shoulders, one knee) on an unsuspecting opponent.

I cheer for the oilers and have watched most of their games this year. I don't recall one incident that is similar to this. Accidents happen but they seem to happen with the Flames on a regular basis. Sure wouldn't want to imply that the lads are dirty but they seem to be a little careless. Unfortunately, Souray, Oksopo, and Drury pay the price for the recklessness, not the Flame.

at what point do we start saying the Flames are a dirty team?

Glencross got engaged on the same day as the hit... Coincidence?
