    I like the wrestling reference in the original posts tweet. The blood must be fake too then.

    Definitely reckless. Brady does flail quite a bit. Unfortunate result for Wheeler.

    Tyachuck was trying to fight Forbort with 2 seconds left in the 1st, Forbort looked at the score clock and gave Taychuck a tard grimmace.... lol

    Accidental elbow it is I'm sure.

    How do you put the blade of the stick on the puck when you are that close to the boards without your elbow being right where it was? I've taken a similar elbow from a player playing a puck in his feet along the boards. Totally unintentional.

    Same amount as McDavid, Matthews, MacKinnon, Draisaitl, Marner, Panarin, Eichel, Rantanen, Pettersson, Laine.

    Maybe I will take the sister.

    Thanks for playing.

    Same physics that say Wheeler is 6'5 when skating.

    Wrong one, this is a different Tkachuk. This one has only had a few "accidental" injury-causing events. So we're supposed to give him the benefit of the doubt for some reason.

    Looked like an accident to me. 2 minute minor at the most.

    Second year in a row the Tkachuk Brothers have menaced the Winnipeg Jets, who are sort of their dad's original team.

    Flying elbow? I don't think means what you think it means.

    Doesn't look like he is positioning his elbow deliberately on this play. Unfortunate result from a reckless play.

    Tkachuk does that a lot for a reverse hit, this was just miscalculated.

    Jeez the whining in here is next level.

    2 min minor at best. Clearly accidental.

    It’s also nothing like the Kassian where there was no possible explanation for swinging a stick like that. Tkachuk is clearly coming in expecting to be hit and bracing himself. He’s also obviously a bit out of control but nonetheless, bracing yourself for a hit while engaging in a puck battle is a legitimate hockey play while swinging your stick around head high clearly isn’t.

    Jesus hockey fans are soft now. It sucks Wheeler got concussed but it wouldn’t have happened if he tried to avoid the hit. Not even a penalty much less a “flying elbow.” Injuries happen in contact sports and the athletes get compensated with millions of dollars. They aren’t forced to play hockey against their will. At least in North America anyways.

    What an idiotic post. Watch the replay. Look at Wheelers cheek.

    LMFAO...

    You realize there's more than one Tkachuk right? Theres in fact three famous ones that have played in the NHL...

    Two of them are current NHLers... and this thread is not about the one you think it is... lol

    I agree, but I’m realizing now that the shitty catch is that if he wins the contact he probably just gets tossed for boarding thanks to that same attitude. Sucks to see and it’s (surprise) not making the game any safer.

    Why are players only responsible for their sticks, but not their elbows? I'm not aware of any coaching that says flail your arms out as you move backwards into a guy for a hit.

    This was just a modern Matt Cooke trip into your head 'accident'.

    How do you stop another player from skating into your elbow? You have to have your elbow out when you are holding your stick with two hands.

    He flails.... After contact. That's nothing reckless about that play. Brady plays the puck from the boards. He turns to get body position. His elbow is up because he is holding his stick. No more holding sticks? No more playing pucks against the boards?

    Looks accidental but Tkachuk def does have that rep where you are hesitant to give benefit of the doubt
