Not sure what Hjalmarsson what thinking on the play, it wasn't like Pommenville turned or anything, he was clearly facing the boards. Really confusing were Quenneville's comments.
"To me, you could argue that it was even a penalty," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "I don't want to see anybody go down and get hurt like that, but [Hjalmarsson] wasn't even looking at the guy, he was playing the puck. There was no intent at all on the hit."
I have not seen a single video showing Pominville facing the boards at any point for contact was made on that play. Every video I've seen looks like Pominville's left shoulder is to the boards as he is facing down the boards toward the corner watching the play looking for the puck to come up the boards and to start out of the zone with it.
I have literally no respect for that guy. When it's one of his guys, they could kill a guy and he would want a diving call, but if one of his guys gets even a boarder line hit on them he thinks they should be suspended for 20 games.
According to several reports, looks like the Sabres and the Amerks may reunite.

This would be great news for both Sabres and Amerks fans. The previous union broke up as the Sabres(who didn't own the Amerks) wouldn't pay for the players in the minors. So the team was stocked...
I had a chance to sit down and talk with Marcus Foligno about his father and brother's legacy, his mother who past away, and what he plans to do if he scores his first NHL goal.
Take a look.
