    Thoughts on this hit?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QtipTlOscg


    What are your thoughts? Someone in our forum thought it would be a good topic in the NHL forum so here you go... I think its a clean hit

    Note his arms in this air make this a bit sick so be warned.


    Also why was the whistle not blown?

    That is the one thing that the NHL could look at to punish him... I did not think about it that way.

    He turns and leads with the elbow. I don't see how that's not a dirty hit. This is why there are so many concussions.

    kronwall deserves a suspension here but at the same time voracek is an idiot

    if you look at the video he sees kronwall then puts his head down, thats just asking for trouble right there, im not supporting the hit, kronwall deserves to be suspended but stupid move by voracek right there also

    Looks like he leads with the elbow. Unless I see a different angle that's what I'd go with.

    Kronny hits are very close to his back. He hits in a very odd spot, and does this on every single one of those hits.

    Yeah I know and usually they're clean. He's an odd hitter like Subban.

    A lot are boardline, though. He skates weird into it, and leaves the feet once in awhile. He's injured numerous players, which really worries me a suspention is on the horizon.

    I found this hit to be more on the cleaner side, but it sure did look ugly. Voracek put his head down at the last moment. The crowd was boo'ing pretty lound, and funny enough, Kronwall almost scored 10 seconds later.

    Which IMO is still a huge problem in the NHL. Guys continue lowering their head. Gotta protect yourself.
