In response to Fletcher1's comment:
Forgive and minimize all you want, that's a straight up elbow to the head on a statiionary goalie, in the crease. To watch it on tv, call it a bump, and blame the goalie for being wimpy is slipping into the caveman nonsense that has helped to usher in the concussion era.
You can't skate into the crease, untouched, and blow up the goalie. I know it's been boring around here, but taking up irrational, overly contrarian opinions isn't really working to spice things up in any kind of interesting way.
I do think everyone here can agree that the Wild just look pathetic. Twice everyone just stands around trades glances between Kadri and the ref with a look of dismay. I don't know if immediate retribution works as a deterrent or not, but it sure beats doing nothing at all.
Fletch, whatever. Because I see it differently, I'm just saying it to make things exciting?
I see it one way. You see it differently.
Maybe everyone here is all over Kadri because he's a Leaf? Maybe everyone is all over Kadri because they're secret Wild fans? That's about as reasonable as your statement.
Backstrom's Broadway act notwithstanding, Kadri skated into the crease, made contact and got a penalty for doing it.
I'm waiting for you to post a Fletcher #69 jersey in Wild colours now.
