How many guys gotta get hit like for change to happen? Granted 15 years ago this hit makes sports center but still…

I dunno…
A defensive player has to be allowed to make that hit, otherwise it needs to be a no checking league.  The line wasn’t blatantly blindside.  Weber was puck locked with his attention, if he looks up, not even around, just up, he sees Hanzal.  I don’t like that primary point of contact is the head, but I don’t know what a defending player is supposed to do here.

There’s only one kind of hit anymore.  Shoulder torpedo.

Last time I saw a fantastic, FANTASTIC, hip check, it was whistled interference.

If guys were allowed to hip check open ice instead of just board bumps we could avoid decaptitating players reaching for the puck.

He did not receive a match penalty or game misconduct. Just a major for interference. Given how much Weber was putting himself in a vulnerable position, if be shocked if Hanzal got supplemental discipline here.
