    That is incredibly sad..

    That's why when i hear on NHL.com that Richards took a dive into the boards on that Kaleta hit i just want to laugh.

    I know this hit was a million times worse but why would anyone want to take that risk of going head first into the boards on purpose with something like that as a possible outcome?

    Where is the respect amongst the players? Where is it? It's nowhere to be found nowadays.
    Feeling left out in society? Are you that kid? The Bruins forum can help you.

    Saw this exact type of play happen live in a Illinois HS hockey game. The kid also ended up paralyzed.

    Just horrific, I hope that guy is able to live a semi-normal life after this.

    Awful. You could tell the guy was trying to slow down and go for the pin against the boards. 99.99% of the time the other player holds up and nothing happens. Players could do that every game but don't.

    agreed, the hit doesn't seem all that dirty. It doesn't look like he was intentionally trying to plaster his head into the boards. Nothing more than a boarding minor imo (which I personally think Boarding should always be a double minor at minimum.). Poor guy. Both of their lives are ruined. 1 for obvious reasons, and the other because he did it to him.

    Are you ****ing kidding me?

    Doesn't seem all that dirty? Did you play hockey or just watch it?
    Never ever do a cowardly hit like that to someone, especially on such an innocent play. A ****ing dump in ruined that guy's life because the dude bumped him from behind. When you get knocked from behind while on skates pursuing a puck like that it isn't easy to keep your balance. That is why 99.99% of players will hold up on a play like that, like it was said.

    This type of BS still even happens in men's league where I live. No contact league where guys don't even wear shoulder pads and some guys just take it to the extreme. There's just no respect or very little and there becomes less year after year in every league from top to very bottom.
