    Garbage. At any level of play IMO.

    Bag skate the **** out of those teammates that watched the play and did nothing.

    Pathetic and SOFT.

    Honestly shocked that Frederic didn't react.

    It looks like #29 Gemel Smith was right there rushing up the ice alongside Bjork when Walker mugged him. Walker looks like he's anticipating Smith to engage with him but Smith just keeps skating...

    They're already well groomed for the big club.

    That hit is ifuriating as is the lack of response.

    Any discipline levied?

    Not the point.

    It's a dirtbag hit, had potential for a serious injury, and his teammates, Frederic especially, did nothing about it.

    one of em was Frederic apparently who actually has a reputation for sticking up for his teammates. not sure what was going through his head here. maybe he was just focused on the puck and didn't notice?

    He has stuck up for teammates in the recent past (this year), so he either didn’t see it, or didn’t think he should fight a guy when he is just coming back from his own concussion after he was run from behind by Steve Bernier.

    I would have loved to have seen Smith jump Walker, but this is a deeper problem. The NHL/AHL need to look at these situations where career tweeners and AHL plugs are allowed to hit young, promising players with no league punishments. They shouldn’t be allowed to hit anyone like that, but it seems to me that the young, inexperienced guys get targeted at times. Have seen it with Frederic and now Bjork in PRO and I’m sure it happens all over the AHL.

    The hit might not have looked that bad from Frederic’s angle, in his defense. The issue I have with it can be seen from the front and side, but Frederic was trailing behind so he may just not have seen it. He’s always first to defend his teammates.

    I think Walker made the right play, to take the carrier in that situation, but that was a dirty and dangerous way to do it. Angle him off into the boards, rather than assert yourself, spin around and throw him to the ground like it’s Monday Night Raw. Walker isn’t a dirty player, either. Just a boneheaded play that could have seriously hurt Bjork.

    I think that was shoulder/chest on the hit. Reminded me of an Aaron Ward forearm shiver he use to throw. I don't think that hit was dirty.

    Maybe you’re right, maybe it was shoulder or chest and not a hit to the head. I might be wrong about that. If someone can review further or bring more angles to light, I’ll gladly admit I was wrong.

    However, I still find this play to be extremely dirty— shoulder, chest or head regardless. You cant use your free-hand to grab a player, interfer with him and eventually toss him to the ground like this. That wasn’t a hockey play.

    I'll have to disagree. While it's eye-catching and maybe even cheap because it's unexpected, I don't think it's overly dirty. Aaron Ward was notorious for this and I know I've seen other players use this as well without penalty or retribution.

    Subban uses the same move quite a bit.

    Not sure I see a bad hit TBH, just see a guy pushing another to the ice by the shoulder? Maybe I`m missing something. Before I clicked on it, was anticipating Bjork with his back to the play getting plastered from behind....umm...nope

    If this were a Bruin doing that to an opponent not one fan here would look twice at is as being "dirty" or "disgusting"

    Expecting you'd lose Cave on waivers for absolutely nothing? He's waivers eligible now.

    JFK and Donato don't require waivers. Acciari likely doesn't get claimed, Cave probably doesn't either, but you never know. not saying I'd waive them but this isn't some impossible situation.

    Like the kid and the effort, I`d lose zero sleep worrying how to replace him
