Some postings from TSN.ca, of course theres some real intelligent people who blame Hamilton/Bruins for Stamkos broken tibia.
If only the mits could come off without an instigator... hamilton may have backed off of the slew foot. Those who don't see it are bruin fans, stamkos isnt heading towards Boston's net, why did this happen. Shanny earth to Shanny.
What does Hamilton, Kassian, and Cooke have in common? They've all found ways to take out skill players and use 'a hockey play' to do it. If you take someone out at the top of the crease like this, it was an intent to injure.
What people don't realize is that Stamkos was in the defensive zone and Tampa Bay had the puck, so why does Hamilton even have his stick in Stamkos' s feet? Should be 5 gamed, like Kassian and Cooke... If you have intent or not if you end a guys season, 5 games should be automatic.
It just seems that the Bruins get away with way too much of this cheap stuff. And they seem to believe that it's just tough hockey. It isn't, it's cheap dirty hockey. It was a slew foot, careless and unnecessary. A second Lightning player took a similar hit along the boards, left and never came back. Unfortunately, the refs appear to be intimidated. What do you expect from a team whose management has so little respect for players that it became the driving force in the player lockout!
blueeandwhite.....I agree 100%. Hamilton never gave cheap shots like that until he went to Boston. That definitely was a slew foot from behind...you can clearly see it in the replay! Stamkos doesn't go down like that on his own.
