Text book definition of a blindsite hit to the head.
I know this could have went into the PGT , but I feel it deserves it's own thread so it can get as much publicity as possible so the NHL can't just sweep this hit under the rug.
3 games would be adequate.
I disagree. If Jokinen got 3 then Staal should get 6. Total lack of respect to his fellow player, had the oppurtunity to let up but didn't and drove forearm/elbow into his head. That is complete bs and he needs to be punished severely for it. But of course he won't because he hit a Flames player.
I too think a long time. This is the kind of concussion that can lead to a difference in a players entire career. Stajan was absolutely rocked and his head took a major impact. He wasn't even wobbly afterwords, he couldn't figure out how to stand up period.
