I think no one will question that that hit was by far one of the most brutal cheashots of the past 5 playoffs.

McGillis(?) on Ribeiro... the impact was quite evident!

tucker on kapanen was awesome just for kapanen's complete discombobulation after the hit.

IT'S funny when a person is hit so hard they don't know which was is up!

To refresh your memory Zednik was coming down the right wing, and McLaren was in front of him and to the left. Zednik tried to pull towards the centre of the ice in front of McLaren and McLaren didn't stop moving backwards in time. So McLaren's last resort was to stick his arm out and clothesline Zednik. He hit him right in the face with his elbow ad and Zednik had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher.

Oh, well, I didn't see it that way. Teach each his own, though you should check out that hit on Cajanek by McLaren.

Yea Tucker is so cool. I wish every team had a player like tucker. Then every team would have a player who constantly jumps into hits with the intent to injure and gets there elbows up. That way we'd have tons of injury's and the NHL would be filled with AHL players, wouldn't that be so cool. Yea Tucker!

not sure if anyone has said this already.
if the hit was called as a penalty, which maybe it should have been, the flyers would never have gone down the ice and scored the series winner on that rush.

Bit biased, but I really enjoyed Komisarek on Thornton

Look at the picture. You see the white stripes on Tucker's jersey? That's where his forearm is. Yep, his elbow sure looks tucked in to me. Take a look at his feet. Yep, both heels are off the ice, which means he jumped into the hit. People see anything resembling a blurry picture and act like they can't do any deductive reasoning.
