Nice hit, Stuey

Via We All Bleed Red on YouTube, as a Wings fan, I sure miss Brad Stuart, and the Sharks defenseman made the highlight reels for the right reasons on Saturday--he delivered a hard but clean hit to Kings forward Justin Williams, who eventually got up and is playing for the Kings right now:

Hitting can be clean and devastating without deliveirng nasty injuries or controversy. Who knew?

From TMR:

I don’t know if posts about ex-Wings are allowed, but Brad Stuart gave credit for his hit last night to Niklas Kronwall (via Pierre LeBrun):

http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/id/24501/coutures-gutsy-play-wont-soon-be-forgotten

“Kings winger Justin Williams left the game before returning as well. He was banged up late in Game 2, and it certainly didn’t help Saturday night when Stuart rocked him with a clean, thunderous check along the boards that reminded you of something Niklas Kronwall would do. Which only makes sense since Stuart and Kronwall were defense partners in Detroit for many years.

“I learned from the master,” Stuart said, smiling. “It’s a play I’ve seen him do quite a few times: The forward looks up, thinks he’s got time and then you make your move. He didn’t see me coming I don’t think until it was probably too late.” “

I guess you could have a pool on who is the first who is going to be Kronwalled in a playoff series and guess the Game it happens.

If the Sharts fans are par for the course (IOW, just like Cawks fans), they’ll claim first dibs and say dumb stuff like, “The Wings copied the Kronwall hits from Stuie and they’re using it against us.”  That quote from Stuie should tell them to STFU.
