    There are posters on the Caps' site that say it was perfectly legal. I was reminded of images of Darcy Tucker pot-shotting a helpless Gonchar a couple years ago, and Gonch laying there glassy-eyed. Peca did the same thing to him. Gonchar has a brief history w/concussions. Let's hope he'll be alright.

    The Russian article has been updated:

    "Gonchar spent some time in intensive care after he was brought to the hospital. The concern was that he regained and lost consciousness on the way to hospital. Seemingly, Sergei is ok now. The doctors found no neck or spinal injuries. Sergei says he does not remember how the incindent happened."

    Good news.

    I hope he's okay. The hit looks clean to Gonchar had his head down at the time

    It's a clean hit in North America, but in Europe there is this new rule "checking against the head and neck". Did he get a penalty?

    Heck of a hit. Way to go Alexander! Hard luck for Gonchar, but he should have had his head up going into the slot like that.

    I can't wait to see Ovechkin meet his match in the NHL. I never liked the kid ever since the World Junior's in Halifax in 2002-2003. He dove all over the ice in that tournament, went down as though he was shot a few times. But of course, he was always back for his next shift. The kid has a ton of talent, but he needs to learn some respect as well. For the game and the other teams players.

    How is Ovechkin disrespectful? A diver? He sacrifices his body and has a more complete game than almost any top prospect I remember since Cam Neely.

    I don't yet know enough about him to say he is disrespectful, but man, I hate seeing hits like that. It was clean, but he got him right on the jaw, IMO, players should not take that opportunity.
