And torres isaint a dirty player? LOL......
Whats funny is im sure many or you were calling for brown to be suspended when the "cold shoulder" elbow occured, but yet torres hit wasnt dirty? I guess the Hossa hit last year in the playoffs wasnt dirty either? The guys entire career is garbage and dirty hits.
What a joke. Homers in the worst way.
Shouler to shoulder. LOL.
Stoll tosses the puck, Torres comes frm accross ice, leads with his shoulder straight into Stolls face, making contact with his face first, an thats a clean hit?
Wow. Kinda homerish on your part.
Torres didn't leave his feet, and connected shoulder to shoulder. He dropped a big hit. That's all. Sad that Stoll got hurt, but you need to put down the homerade.
Like how the homer Kings broadcast crew calls the shot on Doughty cheap just before the Stoll hit...and that was nothing, too.
BTW...this is not a defense of Torres. He has a bad rap for a reason. But bad rap or no, all he did here was drop a big hit.
I'm not a fan of Kings or the Sharks, and Torres hit was clearly dirty. If he had no history, it would probably be a 1 or 2 games suspension. Torres hit was high, made contact with the head, Stoll didn't even have possession of the puck and Stoll was looking the other way. Thats a clear intent to injure IMO.
I think the Doughty hit was clean, because if you watch the replay, it looks like Doughty tried to draw a call. He sees the Sharks player coming and instead of getting ready to be hit turns his back to the incoming player? Thats a big problem now days in the NHL. Use to be players saw a big hit coming and got ready to absorb it, now players are turning your back to it to draw a penalty.
