Suspend the glass for being hard

Ummm…no.

You suspend Simmons for the shoulder directly to the head.

Simmons doesn’t know what he’s doing? He’s obviously a good player but he’s also made a career of this.

The Pens meanwhile need some protection.

Crosby and Pearson against guys like Haley and Kane and Dillon?
And now this?

Traded Reaves in a misguided effort to make Brassard a 3rd line center, then acquired and hyped Oleksiak as an answer to Wilson then traded him when he wasn’t. Pittsburgh needs to figure this out.

I see a good clean hit, but who knows.

What I know is, the other day micky redmond said, there will soon be a day when there’s no hitting in this league because after every hit the other players all take exception. Boy that seems to be the case with a lot of hits now.  Even just compared to 4 years ago.

Totally clean hit, but Pittsburgh fans will always whine…

Who are the Pittsburgh fans here?

I don’t care for either of those teams.

I’m just looking at the hit and how and where Simmons makes contact.
He’s obviously also a hit with a rep for being both legitimately physical - but also dirty.

But great to gain perspective from the Caps fan who only pops up on here to comment to taunt and laugh and childishly try to dismiss any valid criticism of either dirty plays by the caps - or dirty plays against teams like Pittsburgh whom it’s great to see targetted, also “because caps”.

This is the clown who posted that the only player who should have been penalized on Wilson’s flagrant, predatory head-shot against Zach Austin-Reece for throwing a glove in frustration while he was concussed and his mouth was gushing blood.

No doubt the undisputed tough guy of his mom’s basement.

No hearing or anything for Philadelphia’s Wayne Simmonds. Working on a piece now explaining why that’s the case, based on some information I received.

I would not call that a good clean hit.

He left his feet to make contact with his head, thats dirty.  If he kept his skates on the ice, it’s a clean hit but when your feet leave the ice to Target the head that’s dirty

Sorry for the typos and the vitriol.

But this guy literally only comments to troll about how dirty hits by the caps and those targeting their rivals are always super-fun and awesome.

Meanwhile, Dumoulin is somehow now out with a concussion.
