FYI, on KTRS this am they asked Reed Low about it and even HE said it happens all the time! He said when he played he would get knocked out and players would skate by and taunt him and say "I thought you were a tough guy b*itch!". And remember even the NBC announcers said no penalty was called!
Reed Low actually played the game so he knows better than you MORONS calling me a troll simply because YOU are wrong! I've been watching hockey over 25 years and I've seen hits so hard they end up in the bench or the 1st row of seats! This hit was not THAT bad!
REED LOW?! HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!
Wait wait wait, you mean the Reed Low who played for a handful of years for us, turned traitor and signed with the Hawks who sent him down a few months later and he retired at the age of....31. THAT Reed Low? We're going to listen to HIS Opinion??? The only thing he knows in detail is a penalty box.
Look, it's really simple, pay attention: IT WAS A DIRTY HIT. SEABROOK TARGETED BACKES HEAD. OKAY???
Duncan Keith isn't just a dirty hockey player, he is a pathetic excuse for a human being along with the entire Blackhawks franchise and it's fan base. Toews, who had a major skull fracture shouldn't allow this. HE is captain of the team and if these fools are acting this way, and this is NOT the first time the Hawks have reacted to a hurt player with this piss-poor thuggish mentality with absolutely NO concern for human life says everything I need to know about Toews as a hockey player, a captain, a leader and a human being.
Because of how Ken Hitchcock, as a LEADER, has approached this situation and how he is handling it has made me fall in love with him. The Hawks do NOT have the skills of Schwartz and Tarasenko, they do NOT have the physicality we're bringing and they do NOT have the goaltending depth that we enjoy. So, as human beings and players of class, they're going to try and do the one thing they can - hurt players. They've already conceded who the better team is and that's US. And all they're going to try and do now is goon it up.
I say before we're sweeping this and I'm saying it again today. We're sweeping. Jesusneverexisted is getting a visit from Jesus, some Martians and as a special guest - Buddah.
To our guys, boys: Stay Calm and Bleed Blue.
Let's put these fuggin dogs down.
