    Not surprised this OP made a thread like this, but it's not anywhere close to a suspension. It's 2 minutes for boarding/interference.

    Oh Lord... Leafs fans mad because Kronwall tried saving Matthews' life. You can literally see him extend his arm out trying to grab Matthew's back from the brink of going into boards.

    That's a dangerous area against Detroit... You go near the boards you WILL eat a Tyler Bertuzzi uppercut!

    Pretty sure Lindros was his brain and if a pos like Stevens hit any of us, the same result would happen, or worse.

    I honestly thought Kronwall retired like 5 years ago.

    Every time Matthews is hit legal or not. There will be some sort of reaction until he can prove he is durable enough to play in the NHL without being injured.

    People saying "that is not boarding AINEC" are either hard of seeing or don't think boarding is an actual real penalty, because you can very easily make an argument that this hit is boarding, and that's coming from a Wings fan. Nevertheless, two minutes is all it's worth.

    But seriously... Who in their right mind would think a suspension comes out of this?

    ... If Matthews isn't off balance he probably doesn't even fall.

    Seems like the thread title should be more like "Matthews dangerous fall after minor hit by Kronwall."

    Is there really an 8+ page thread for a hit that happens 100% in the NHL, sorry Matthews, I really am. Does LeBron play for the Raptors?

    Imagine if Kronwall had hit Matthews the way he used to hit guys just a few years ago.

    I think the vast majority here agree it was not a dirty play and most definitely not suspension worthy. 2 min pen at most.

    Exactly Leaf fans are a bunch of whiners any ways. That's a clean hit.

    :laugh: :laugh: For a Leaf fan to even post this as dangerous, Doesn't know what dangerous is. That's a clean hit. More interference then boarding.

    Definite interference, but I also think Matthews caught a rut or an edge or something because he kind of got propelled more than what it looked like he should've.

    How can it be a penalty and also a clean hit?

    Being a penalty doesn't make it a dirty hit... Kronwall didn't do anything wrong there... Matthews just not a good enough skater to handle NHL dmen.

    Perhaps it's time to lock the thread then instead of allowing it to continue bashing the OP.

    Contributory negligence on Matthews' part.
