should have been a major at the time... maybe the refs didn't have a good view

deserves a 2 game suspension though... looked more vicious than the kucherov penalty due to the speed involved.

Looks like a brutal and intentional headshot to me

Joe says his kid hits him harder than that.

I'm terrified of Joe's child.

I'm surprised the fans didn't react more to that hit. Sometimes these 'headshots' are just the guy leaning over and having the head hit before the rest of his body, which makes it difficult for a defender to avoid the head. But this is entirely on Thornton.

Nosek caught watching his pass. But Jumbo Joe definitely alters his body position to finish the check on a player in a vulnerable position, and you can't really argue that it was contact with the head. So it's a suspension, and it should be. I'm going with 2 games, and that doesn't really leave me feeling like justice was served.

To me it's a pretty direct hit to the head, and I believe an intentional hit to the head nowadays is a suspension. McDavid got 2 for his hit earlier in the season, so this should be a one game suspension.

I don't think his comments about the hit are gonna do him any favours in the hearing.

You had two options Joe:

1. It wasn't my intention to hit him like that and I hope he's ok.

2. Pffft that was nothing.

Never pick option 2 Joe.

Is there more suspensions in this year's playoffs than there normally is? It feels like it.

Should be one game at least as that was not an accident or chance hit to the head but I would like to see more as these are the types of hits that do a lot of damage.

His quote was:

That wasn't a smart comment by Joe, though in some ways I've always appreciated how he's not a cliche sound bite guy.

I hope he gets zero games.

I want that series to go 7 games and for whichever team wins to be exhausted physically. Letting Joe rest two games and then SJ winning the series means he is two games fresher to start the second round.
