    The number of people in this thread who don't even know which Tkachuk it is is f***ing hilarious.

    Also, apparently having the same last name means that Brady is responsible for everything Matthew has done.

    BTW Josh Manson is the dirtiest player in the league.

    All this dirt from the Tkachuk's makes me hope nobody in their family bloodline wins the Stanley Cup. And I know Keith technically has one with the Blues.

    Wheeler being injured is a big downer for the Jets and makes me mad. But I think Scheifele should get a C on his jersey for the time being.

    How do you hold a stick with two hands without your elbow being out? If your hand is near the butt of the stick your elbow will be out unless you've stretched your stick way out in front of you.

    This thread is hilarious. Some posters need to physically pick up and move a hockey stick before posting. There's no way to use a hockey stick without having your elbow out. When you bring the stick in close to play a puck that is close to you, the elbow goes higher. It is absolutely not a rule in hockey that you have to keep your elbow tucked in, or even low, at all times when trying to play a puck.

    Looks like an "accident" to me. These players are very good at making intentional things look like accidents. Apparently it works.

    Miscalculated hits leading to headshots are often punished, providing motivation to not miscalculate next time. Whether accidental or accidentally on purpose the NHL can't be taken seriously when it ignores headshots.

    Sneaky dirty as a guy like that would do, why else is his elbow up that high and lose his stick so easily. He was doing a reverse hit and throwing his body up with the elbow leading.

    Emphasis on the quote marks. Anyone who thinks it was a legitimate accident should never be on a jury.

    You realize that people will read your post and think you're serious, right?

    How is this even reckless? You can't go into the boards to play contested pucks anymore?

    That's how you were taught to contest a puck and throw a check? Turn you back and close your eyes?

    He’s definitely anticipating contact, but not with the elbow. He’s just throwing his weight backwards in anticipation Wheeler is going to hit through the body and instead he goes to the outside and catches the elbow.

    It’s really difficult for me to see this being at all dirty and/or intentional.

    What the hell? When you're coming in with speed into boards you have to turn. And yes players are taught to use their body position to play pucks. Tkachuk used his body to separate the opposing player from the puck. This is a very standard hockey play.

    It's so obvious it's remarkable.

    How often does a guy stop or throw a check backwards along the boards to hold up a guy behind him?

    Wheeler goes to the outside and apparently Brady forgot to install a rearview mirror on the side of his helmet.

    To a lot of people Tkachuk = bad.

    They see that name and run in to a thread half cocked ready for blood. Gotta be a sad way to live ones life. Always looking to be angry or offended doesnt sound fun

    That was my intention, yes.

    You just telling people they're blind and dumb and providing nothing else?

    At best very naive. Then again, if someone can look at that video and claim it was accidental... well, never mind.

    LOL, 90% of his body misses completely.

    Watch the replay, his centre of mass flies backwards into thin air and he almost falls over as a result.

    Wheeler was this close to making Brady look silly for missing the check entirely.

    It's a terrible outcome but that doesn't mean you have to make stories up about why and how it happened. You just end up looking ridiculous.

    His body wasn't intended to be involved. Just his elbow, to Wheeler's face. Perfect hit buy Tkachuk family standards.
