That’s the definition of a cheap shot there and he jumps.

Well Roy was mad last week for people committing cheapshots against his team…

This isn’t a hit. It’s just a bump for body position. Chris Connor broke his hand on a worse-looking, but similar play the other day and there was no call (despite Paul Steigerwald’s *****ing) or suspension. IMO, there shouldn’t have been one. There or here.

Had to watch it a few times to see if I was missing something. That contact happens multiple times each and every game, and even with the video slowed down - when almost any hit looks horrific - it appeared completely benign.

Props to Berube for his honesty and hope Raffl gets back soon.

Please tell me Flyers fans and media are not complaining about cheap shots.
