Now im a die hard hockey fan and I love the game. It's become a part of me and I love seeing nothing more than a big hit in a game but last night's hit by Cam Janssen was just plain cheap. It does not take a rocket scientist to realize that the hit was about 5 seconds to late and it should not have been done. Janssen says he was only finishing his check but really how slow is the guy to hit somebody that late? He didn't even get a penalty which is really what steams me. The god damn NHL buts the sh!t of systems in where they try and protect a guy by not letting somebody touch them with their stick but when something like this comes up they don't give a intention to injure or roughing or elbowing or anything to the guy. COME OFF IT. Geez the refs are morons to not know that the hit was late and all they had to do was see a replay and they should have given Janssen a 10 minute misconduct and the game. Then the NHL goes and gives him three games. 3 stinking games for one of the cheapest hits I think we'll ever see in this league. 3 games is nothing to the guy. He loses $7000 about that in salary and it just sends the message that what he did was alright and if your willing to pay a small penalty its more than dueable. Well sorry guys but im not going to sit back here and just accept the hit. Gary Betman is an idiot and he is the last man that should be in charge of the NHL. He needs to send the message to all the players that hits like this do not belong in the game and that there is no room for bull like that. Also see to it the refs get something for not calling anything. A blind monkey could have seen that and called it right. Now my opinion might be a little biased because well lets face it im a die hard leafs fan but none the less it was cheap. No two ways about it , it was cheap and it should not be tolerated. If we had somebody good in place of Bettman maybe then we'd have a system where minor checks are fine and these hits are dealt with but until then I don't think the NHL will realize the seriousness of this hit. What are your thoughts and please hold nothing back. Were allowed to speak whatever we want as long as it is within context.
