It was a clean hit but to me it looked like his own stick caught him up high and snapped.I am going to have to reply it again.He should not get any suspension for that.

I think he get a few games....maybe 1 or two.
Correction: BLINDSIDE shoulder hits to the head are grounds for suspension. It was specifically written in the rulebook and talked about by the GM's that taking out normal shoulder to head hits would cut down on the physical aspect of the game way too drastically. Guys would be afraid to throw normal hits...you can't know for sure where you're going to hit the guy until it happens since the receiving party could very well make moves to put himself in a vulnerable position at the last moment.

This is two things: bad luck and a player not preparing himself adequately for a hit he saw coming.

I'll bet you any amount of money he deservedly gets nothing.

He got a 5 minute major for charging? I watched the video about 100 times (OK maybe only 4 times) and I can't understand how that was called a charge?

I love the bone crushing hits,but i do think that the hitter should take into condideration a player who is in a vulnerable position. Cookes hit was deemed legal last season but he didnt have to aim for Savards head.He could have still drilled Savard by targeting the shoulder...Samething here,Gleason could have crushed Perrault going shoulder to body.
this. plus he was following through with the elbow anyways... that could have killed the dude on its own if there were any type of delay or change in timing at all...

It does.

It's a comedy of errors for these refs. Charging? He never took a single stride in Perreault's direction. Perfect example of them reacting to the result, and not the action. Clean hit, shoulder down. But man did he get smoked, he needed to protect himself better there.

I was watching this game when it happened.

Before seeing the replay it looked like a bad hit. Perreault was leaking pretty bad and I assumed, like the refs did, that Gleason hit him in the head. Not until seeing it from several views could you tell it was Perreault's broken stick that cut him. Impossible play for refs to get right.
