Don’t think its a suspension, maybe a call and fine at the most but its a coward move. Hedman should be embarrassed.
No. Because dumb people vote.
Absolutely needs to be a fine at the minimum.
Imo should get a game because I don’t know how he can justify that ‘love tap’ in that situation.
$2,000 fine. Suspend him next time not because the action is suspension worthy but because he obviously doesn't get the message from fines.
I'd like to see that crap out of the game for good. Its one of the most despicable acts out there.
Hate those.. Dirty.
But do they ever get anything more than a fine for these? I wish they had the balls (oops) to suspend for things like this.
Seem to remember quite the few which has been worse than these that only rewarded a fine.
Wtf is wrong with this generation? “Nasty spear”? That is what you call a cup check.
Ouch. got him with the Bruins special. He'll get a fine.
Ballsy move by Hedman.
suspensions should always be handed out for crap like this.....
no man hits another man in the balls, what a wuss that Hedman is
This is what happens when you try to get rid of fighting cheap shots like this happen
That's a ****in NUT SHOT people. Its as dirty as hit from behind, shot to head, etc etc. Real dirty. There NEEDS to be a suspension, less one day Crosby slices someone's NUTS OFF.
Played hockey for over 40 years now and have never once given a guy a nut shot, it's as bad as watching basketball players slap each other
Are we men or what?
Bodycheck the guy as hard as you want or drop the gloves, don't be spearing sacks
Done with the tip of the blade that is an actual spear by the rule book and should be a suspension. It is also dangerous.
I have no idea why the NHL lets this stuff go.
All this noise over a little public service by Hedman?
Just making sure the rook had his cup on. Goodness knows in the high pressure setting of the playoffs easy for some one to be forgetful.
But really. It is a penalty on the ice. It is likely a fine. It is never a suspension.
I agree. It was nuts.
Never is a strong word.
It's also, by rule, a major + game misconduct on the ice and will almost certainly get a fine.
This incident is never a suspension.
Marchand thing is very different situation.
Obviously a league approved move since Crosby got away with it on O'Reilly.
Just a fine, you can tell from Hischier's reaction that it wasnt too hard. Does the initial 'drop and cover em' which is normal, but quickly realizes that he's ok.
For the record that's what I believe DoPS will see and do, I'm totally in favor of automatic suspensions for clearly intentional nutshots.
I love Hedman as a player but that was garbage
Not suspension worthy imo tho
Lol Gretzky himself did it at least once.
Guys like Bobby Clarke, Chelios, Messier and Pronger are on the list but Malkin’s not there because he’s a goon?
Dirty and worthy of a penalty but the league typically only suspends plays that could cause an injury. Hedman isn't a tough guy and does do cheap stick work in garbage time.
