After Todd Bertuzzi's hit on Ryan Johnson, the CTL panel questions the NHL's handling of head shots - 3/29
You think that was some malicious I don't think it was malicious but I think it's very difficult so legislate when these hits -- so subjective -- you know you can look at it hit from one angle. And if it could look clean look at it from another angle -- -- and wonder why is trying to kill someone I simple -- last night. It you know. Did he observe the game misconduct but I don't know. You Selig has a lot in the NFL obviously tracking now not on hard hits and concussions where do you feel like hockey should go with this I think. You know to the best of their ability they need to determine -- wasn't malicious was there an intent to injure the dead. And then that's you know we're talking about a massive gray area here. It's difficult to tell your history playing at our -- yeah yeah. Coach or no way that's I'm Matt -- not gonna play. The Pittsburgh Penguins for an awful long time if you could Bertuzzi sit side by side with -- it there's really no comparison he cooks it was pure thuggery. That one you could almost say are kind of came in a weird angle and Johnson went down got a little out at the same time. If you're that concerned about elbows and head and blows the head. I think you maybe err on the side of severity and the I'd be shocked if Bertuzzi as a saying. Doesn't miss a game that would kind of surprised -- -- the -- this is really NHL's making the big mistake it's an opportunity to send a message right. Absolutely I haven't done it enough they did it with cook thanks the Pittsburgh Penguins sit suspend this guy who would bet. This action last night deserves a suspension. If you don't start cracking down now if you don't legislate immediately. You're gonna see more and more of this in the NHL just there at the NHL I don't that's turning a blind or whatever. But you gotta stop this and stop it now and that means even if it isn't malicious gadgets and I mean she's. If you look at it there is almost. Going in reverse. Into Romo that you saw I don't know how. I don't know how you're really trying to be malicious near Gasquet in the doesn't matter if you're being malicious -- -- yes and. We've saw that in the NFL to sometimes a hard hit whether it was and there -- not the hard hitting you have to take the penalties.
