Default Donald Brashear's cheap shot on Betts

YouTube video

If this is not suspendable, and for a good time, then nothing is. Late, to the head, and opposing player not even looking. What a disgrace.

As a side not, he got NO penalty whatsoever for the hit, just a roughing minor in the scirmish that followed.

I don't know the only thing i saw wrong is that it was a little late.

I didn't see an elbow as it looked like a shoulder.

The other problem right now for the NHL is that they don't have a rule in place about head shots.

Brashear will however probably get a game for his little push in the pre game warm up.

I have to agree. Was not that bad.

Several instances of this down the stretch were given 5 minute interference penalties, which is new. Specifically for these where the puck is gone, and a player takes a free run(finishing the check my foot) at a player that has no expectations of being hit.

He had just dumped the puck in, and Brashear hit him about 1.5 seconds after he dumps it and nobody took it.

The official ruling on hitting players who just got rid of the puck is as follows.

Quote:
Possession of the Puck:

The last player to touch the puck, other than the goalkeeper, shall be considered the player in possession. The player deemed in possession of the puck may be checked legally, provided the check is rendered immediately following his loss of possession.
His hit was not late enough to warrant anything, and his hit was shoulder. His Elbow came up after the contact with a pushoff, but that is legal and common.

Only the blind contributed to this thread. How do you break someone's orbital bone (which is behind your eye) with a shoulder?

As usual the dunces ignore the facts and change the subject.
