    Ya I wouldn't fight a scrub like Kassian either.. Same with Lomberg. He's turtling us to the top of the pacific.

    RatBoy gets your D blown up out of spite. Long term statistical liability for games missed for blueliners.

    44 seconds in on the first replay. That's the moment of impact.

    Both of Dumba's skates are on the ice at that point.

    Backlund needs to keep his head up there.

    And yet we've seen those "head down" hits get penalized often... The NHL doesn't agree with you or itself.

    Helen Keller could see both his feet on the ice at the moment of impact.

    Elbow was tucked in , skates didn't leave the ice before the hit , no charging and went through the player.

    Good hit.

    That would be a dumb ****ing rule considering the speed of the game and how easy it is for player to stumble, lose their balance, or simply turn.

    No hearing for Dumba. Clean hit.

    Are hip checks the only way to legally hit someone now?

    Often isn't always and wrong calls in the past doesn't mean you need to make them in the future.

    I don't know what you define as a headshot but he clearly hits him with a shoulder to the head. I still don't think it was a dirty hit. Players need to stop lunging and putting them in a position to not be able to avoid major contact. If he's skating upright he's got a good chance to side step the bulk of that hit and completely avoid any contact to his head.

    Sounds like a very dangerous boy. Surprised he is still in the league.

    Often means often and consistency is the most important piece to discipline. Without it, your league isn't credible.

    Apparently it's not credible already with teams paying off officials and such.

    It was a total predatory hit by Dumba and not arguing anything against it and Wild are just plain garbage, but the Flames are just a bunch of psychopaths. If Bennett was on the ice there, he lose his ape **** and just go beyond crazy flinging crap and ice skates towards Dumba like he's Happy Gilmore two-point-o.

    People like you are ruining hockey.

    Those who have this opinion generally fit two criteria:

    1) They never played the game at any competitive level

    AND

    2) They skipped physics class in high school

    Hopefully this doesn't get edited or deleted. People with this guy's viewpoint are literally ruining the game by over correcting a problem.

    That knee by Giordano (who is a fantastic player for the record) was much more dangerous and dirty than the Dumba hit.

    Yup. Obviously want players to be safe... but not to be forgotten is that it's a physical game, the players know what they've signed up for, injuries are going to happen.
