    Well I'm sure you're just trolling now, but are you suggesting that he also bloodied his own face on the bench afterwards just to further sell it?

    Careless stick swings most often result in a minor or double minor. I'd guess 99% or more of high sticking penalties are careless and don't result in a suspension.

    Since when is careless resulting in visible injury a "should be a suspension" lol it almost never is and also shouldnt be.

    Doesn't Wheeler go down like this on a routine basis?

    Tomorrow will be the first game he misses in 439 games due to injury. So, no?

    LOL, if anyone was defenseless in that position, it was Brady. Wheeler avoids contact and gets himself clipped.

    That definitely looks accidentally on purpose to me.

    Looks like Wheeler just skated into his elbow.

    Clear embellishment on the part of the jabroni.

    Extremely careless and no reason to have his elbow that freakin high. Not to mention he’s leaving his feet to do it.

    Brutal elbow. Thought they wanted those head shots out of the game?

    Tkachuk is always coming in with elbows high.
    He doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt anymore

    Ya “them” please tell me when Brady ever makes a accident happen.
    You mess with the bull....
    They are not the same people if he didn’t skate his face into an elbow it would not have hit an elbow

    Tkachuk is too smart of a player. One that I would love on my team. I think he should sit a couple games.

    I'm 90% sure this was his first minor for Elbowing but sure.

    Okay
    I'm talking about what I've seen myself. He's often skating into the scrum with an elbow. Often he dips going into it.

    Tough one.
    As a Jets fan I hate it.

    but I’d take either Tkachuk in a heartbeat on our roster

    Wherler goes down injured about as frequently as the Chuckle Brothers manage to injure someone genuinely by accident.

    So no, not regularly. Almost never. A handful of times in the last decade.

    He's missed approximately 7 games since the team relocated to Winnipeg.

    I will take all Tkachuk's on my team and probably beat you. Brady, Matthew, Keith, Walt, even the sister who Keith told me was the best athlete in the family.

    Right because the Tkachuks are such proven winners. How many cups between them?

    Hey, just give Brent some time. Players develop differently and it's probably just taking some time to move out of Wayne's shadow

    I feel like him trying to control the puck with 1 hand led to his elbow being in that position rather than some sort of malicious intent.
