Way to play the body, Tim. Looked like a third defenseman out there.

When you're playing against a dirty team, it's best to defend yourself pre-emptively.

Poor Sedins...so utterly soft.

dirty? you mean how chara almost killed a guy running him into a stanchion? or the multiple slashes to the back of the leg or the hook and charge on daniel sedin? what were you saying about dirty?

That Chara hit was not dirty, just circumstantial.

The Canucks are not dirty either.

Also, lots of players slash.

If a hockey rink has an area that may kill a player if checked there, there is a fundamental flaw in the design/configuration.

Yes, Chara meant to drill him into that area. Players drill each other into the benches all of the time. But you will never convince me that Chara wanted to severely hurt him. Nothing in his past suggests that this is how he plays.

That said, when you target a defensive player over a second after he plays the puck and leap forward, thrusting your shoulder into his skull and leaving him with his arms jutting out and unconscious on the ice, you are a pathetic goon headed for a long suspension.

So it goes. Sometimes a hit speaks for itself. When you add it to the biting, the taunting, and the flopping, it's one huge embarrassment for this Canadian team.

awesome hit. if the player is near the puck he's fair game - even for the goalie to crunch. i hope luongo and the cry baby canucks get zambonied in the next three.

I like how Hank looks all... "Did that just really happen?!"

I believe he then went on to earn a 10 minute major for being a whiny little femme.

Go back to the 2006 playoffs between the Sabers and the Flyers. Google Umberger-Campbell big hit...the difference between that hit and the Rome hit was that the Rome hit was called interference.

Henrik was the top scorer last year and Daniel this year. Hardly "sisters" but very skillful. You sound like you are 10.

Why is everyone trashing Sedin? He didn't complain about the hit, he didn't retaliate. The misconduct penalties to Sedin and Ference were ridiculous. They should have gotten 2 each max.

Pretty sure it's legal, Sedin was in the crease so even if he'd scored it wouldn't've counted.

that in-the-crease rule was changed in recent years...
if the puck had gone in it would count as a goal...

Legal... and not even close to dirty. He coulda put him in the hospital if he'd gone any higher or lower.
