And MaxPax should have had
1) on ice awareness, he should have known the stanchion was there.
2) clock awareness, there were only a couple of ticks left on the clock and there was no way he could have accomplished anything in that amount of time.
So actually it was MaxPax' fault.
Hey, come off of it. There is "admiring your pass" and "admiring your pass". Just exactly how far do you want to take this? You're on a pk and ice the puck and watch it and 5 seconds later someone creams you - and I suppose you're going to say you should have done more to protect yourself?
Actually, show me ONE - ONE injury no matter how malicious where the player could have avoided injury by protecting himself better.
Ace Bailey should have protected himself better against Eddie Shore.
Ted Greene should have protected himself better against Maki's stick.
Keith Magnasun should have been able to protect himself.
You can ALWAYS say the injured party could have done more to protect himself.
If you are sitting at a red light and get rear ended by a speeding drunk you could have taken steps to avoid the accident.
