That’s a bad look, Hedman.
Yikes, that’s dirty as hell
Should be 2 games, one per testicle.
Very lame to spear someone in the nads
I didn't expect that from Hedman
I'm hoping for a 1-game timeout, but I don't see it happening.
He only hit him because Hischier shot the puck at the goalie after the whistle. That's what you get for a dirty ass play like that. He tries it again next game and it won't be just a tap.
stick to what actually happened
Ooooooo, sportin some ‘tude now!
Suspend him forever and put him in prison for 5 years!!!!!
From center ice?
it is a spear, no matter how it looked like a "temporary issue" it could have taken him out. IF that happened, and Hedman was not suspended, the League is determining who wins series.
This must be looked at
That seems like classic Hedman really. Hes a top 5 defender in the league but he has a bit of a fake tough guy persona. He loves to do stuff like that to a rookie but if he ever got called to task by someone his size he isnt getting involved unless there is another Tampa player there with him.
Which game were you watching?
Channeling his inner Crosby.
Should be a game but won't be.
Probably just a fine but it will be interesting if it goes ignored
That's a penalty maybe a fine and a knock it off letter. On ice retribution warranted.
Will people like you still whine about Hedman's spear 2 years later?
Probably not, but most people don't care about Hedman
Meh. He was even one of the Lady Byng nominees last season (finished #38). His game is more a gentleman's game in general. He rarely plays the body unless he absolutely has to (prefers stickwork and positioning) and you won't see much rough stuff outside of the occasional headlock or face wash to help out a teammate in a scrum. Which makes his "cup check" last night even more surprising.
Hahaha, I thought that was the one thing that little weasel hadn't done. What a piece of ****.
As a a fan of the game, it's pretty disappointing to see Hedman pull a chicken**** move like that. As a Devils fan though, it's nice to see a bit of frustration on the other side.
It's the playoffs. Sack up .
No, Crosby set the precedent, others are just following suit. Hedman is trying to play hockey the Canadian way. /s
This is what happens when a fanbase defends a play by their guy and then comes on here and talks about the same type of play being dirty. When Crosby does it he's being gritty and standing up for himself. When marchand does it, he's a rat piece of ****. Now that Hedman has done it, he's a dirty player for life - and the people digging up some video from 2011... what a reach there.
Bottom line, the dops doesn't seem to give a **** about these plays. Should it be a suspension? Yeah. But they set the precedent by letting everyone who does this walk, except the guy who has a history as long as his nose.
Should be a game, it's not the most vicious....but you can't spear a guy in the nuts.
