Chicago Didn’t Like The Hit From Dustin Brown On Jonathan Toews


Not a very good video of the hit, but here it is.

Anyone else find a lot of complaining going on in both series even though only game 1 has been played?

Good lord. Whiners vs. divers. I wish neither of these teams could win the West.

Title should read:

“Chicago doesn’t like any hit from any opposing player on any player of theirs.”

The league has all but encouraged it.  Take a look at the CHI-DET series as an example.  CHI spent 4 games whining nonstop to the press and (not) automagically then started getting most of the calls in their favor the next 3.

If you cry enough, loud enough, you’ll eventually get what you want with this league.  That’s the NHL now.  So every one of these 4 teams has figured this out after 2 rounds, and all 4 are going to cry up a storm.

If a Pitt/Chi Final occurs the NHL will be giddy, but the fact is the Final will be tarnished by the fact the two captains of those teams are nowhere near captain-material, and the whining and un-professionalism will be amazing to behold.

Given what Bolland did to Richards, STFU you whiny bitches.

If Chicago and Pittsburgh advance, I think this will be the first year I won’t watch one minute of the Cup Final live.

Between Brown for LA and Bolland, Shaw and Keith for Chicago the winner of this series may not have enough healthy bodies to ice a team for the finals.

I’ll second that.  I love hockey in general but the whining and diving is ruining the sport.  I blame the officials and the league more than the players.  They (the players) adapt to what is or is not being called.

Dustin Brown hit Toews in the head with his elbow, they showed the hit on NBCSN. IT was your typical dirty Brown hit.
