What is up with the Flyer's they already had two players out on league suspensions for rule violations and yesterday afternoon I watched the most cowardly hit in hockey the hit from behind. Here is a link to read [url][http://www.nhl.com/nhl/app/?service=page&page=NewsPage&articleid=341397/url].
I refereed hockey for 22 years from youth to college and this was the hit that all the leagues strictly enforced and there should be nor gray area on this hit.
Ok..first off..it was not a cowardly hit because it was not a dirty hit..illegal yes..but not dirty.
It had 0 intent to injure..and if it didn't injure him..there would be no suspension and you know that. jones didn't have any time to stop after patrice got himself in that low, self inflicting position! Those other two players deserved to get suspended. the hit on Mchammond would not of been a suspension if he was not hurt thats just factual. Mats Sundin was tripped into the boards last year head first and seperated his shoulder...NO suspension? why? Because it's a trip? Its the same concept..if your going to F*ck over Jones..you better F*ck over everybdoy else. Maybe it's becasue JOnes isn't a superstar? He would probably get less games than he got if he was Jagr or Lidstrom. But I don't disagree with Jones getting suspended..it looked like a horrible hit. Boulerice and G..i forget his name..anyway THEY deserved the suspensions! That was insane what they did and it shouldn't reflect on the rest of the team to be called a bunch of goons bc their not goony players..they play tough, physical, fast hockey. People get hurt. That's the game I played.
