    What they say if you don't mind sharing for me?

    Kings are extremely soft. They became soft when RR left. And even then that's only one player who wasn't soft at the time.

    Winning the game comes first. Guess this would have been the first instigator penalty in NHL history then because these guys are professionals and don't take penalties.

    You're being obtuse. It's your schtick though so I get it.

    At the end of the broadcast, Randy Hahn simply said that after this performance by Kovalchuk, who had been relegated to 3rd/4th line status, Desjardins might now have a different perspective about Kovy’s spot in the lineup. He didn’t say much more than that.

    Blindside checks to the head should be permitted?

    He’s just lucky he doesn’t have a history of this or it would have been longer.

    The frustrating thing about these glancing half-head, half-shoulder hits finishing through the front of a player is that they’re entirely a result of poor coaching.

    The most impressive, effective open ice hits finish through the puck carrier’s center of mass. From the side, that means you initiate contact when your hips and shoulder are exactly aligned with their hips and shoulder. If it’s from the front, your shoulder aligns with their chest (just below the collarbone), not their head. Regardless of the direction, your goal is to maintain a lower center of gravity and make the most contact with the chest or hips, and if timed properly the shoulder as well.

    Karlsson (and many other players in recent memory) had the option to do either, and instead choose to chickenshit out of full contact by aiming only for the shoulder AND rising up into the hit away from center of mass which almost always means head contact. I don’t know if it’s the focus on speed and skill that’s causing more players to not learn how to hit properly, but it’s a problem that’s inexcusable at this level. It’s even more important the faster players get, I’d argue.

    The Kings need to draft another player like Dustin Brown, and soon.
