Babcock On The Kronwall Hit

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne called Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall a dangerous player for a hit he delivered on Saturday.

Red Wings coach Mike Babcock agrees. And that’s the way he wants him to be. But Babcock also said Monday that Kronwall is a clean player.

“I looked at the replay many times. (Kronwall) stepped up on him and got his shoulder in his chin. It’s a hockey play,’’ Babcock said. “I think one of the comments was Kronner’s dangerous. He is. That’s why we like him.

“I don’t think anything was outside the rules or the boundary of the game. Obviously, you don’t want anyone to get hurt. Teemu’s a Hall of Famer, one of my favorites. I don’t like to see him get bumped, but that’s the game.’’
