“The game is much different now than when I played, the game is much different than when I coached. Once the response didn’t happen, I knew it wasn’t going to happen. Was I disappointed? Absolutely.
“I don’t care what team this is. It’s Opening Day today, right? Somebody puts a ball in the mid section or the ribs of one of your players, I would expect that at some point in the very near future, like immediately, someone is going to get one in the same spot. You’re going to go, 'OK, if you’re going to play that way, then we’re going to amp it up as well.' I was disappointed nothing happened, and especially when it didn’t happen right away, it wasn’t going to happen.”
-Eddie Olczyk, TV color analyst for the Chicago Blackhawks regarding the hit on Jonathan Toews from Brooks Orpik of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Olczyk was on 87.7 FM radio in Chicago and had more to say. Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago has it covered.
