    Lol oh I have seen some good ones in here, like " He should not be allowed to hit a star player like that", "Old washed up Dman should know better". This is hockey, that is his job! No just because hes your star does not mean other teams can't hit him. I think we have a new name for him and it has to be Glasshews!!! Sorry leaf nation.

    Matthews has to be careful or he'll be the next lindros

    He's probably been so physically dominant his whole career that he never had to think much about protecting himself until he hit the NHL

    2min penalty is enough here, Kronwall should have just lifted the stick but probably didn't know he was going to reach out like that. Matty's a big guy and would have otherwise just been slown down. Glad he wasn't injured.

    Stand up to Kronwall because Matthews can't skate?

    Good hit, interference for sure, but definitely not boarding or suspension worthy, give us all a bloody break!

    I love reading all the bitterness towards the Leafs.

    Dirty? Lmao.

    Kronwall has had some borderline (and very iffy by that) hits in his career. Old school step ups. Rarely ever dirty.

    If you believe that hit on Matthews was dirty, then you may need to get your eyes checked, man.

    It's dirty in that it's an illegal hit, hence the penalty. It wasn't predatory though.

    Dirty to me implies there was malicious intent. There was none.

    Edit: I agree with your overall assessment

    Hardly even interference, Matthews is reaching for the puck, he is eligible to be hit. Maybe boarding but mostly just unfortunate hit.

    Not suspension worthy agreed, but 100% an interference penalty and an unfortunate dangerous hit (not Kronwalls fault)

    Penalty, that's about it.
    That no one made him accountable for it really highlights how soft a team the Leafs are.
    He should have been spoken to.

    Not even sure how people are calling it interference. Just watch gif in the OP and focus on Matthews' stick and the puck. They connect at the moment he gets hit. He's fair game.
    Nasty fall but it's 100% on Matthews. Don't make plays like that if you can't brace yourself for a safe impact.

    Scary play. Matthews needs to withstand some hard hits given his style of play but not of that variety.

    From the clip in the OP, it looks like Kronwall got all number plate on the shoulder.

    Suspension?

    Come on. Anybody who thinks this is a suspension must want bodychecking completely out of the game. This was a laughable 2 minute penalty call. He literally got 2 minutes for bodychecking.

    That's not even anywhere near the top 100 worst things Kronwall has done. I really dislike Kronwall, he is a filthy, predatory hitter, but in this case it's not even actually all that dirty just a simple interference penalty where he threw an illegal pick on the guy with a football style block. Matthews was totally unready for any kind contact and went flying 6 feet into the boards off this minor contact, hopefully he is not hurt but it's a bit of a lesson maybe to be careful when you are thinking of trying to fully stretch out to reach a loose puck when there's a lot of traffic around. Maybe that would be OK in the Swiss league but not in the NHL where anyone near you is not just going to stand aside and watch you go for that puck.

    Soon every single hit that happens in the league is going to have it's own thread.
