    It looks like Schenn leaves his feet before the initial contact. Should he be suspended or fined? No, but he should have received a charging penalty.

    I don’t think we need an injury to justify a suspension.

    Oh for sure. But, should we consider giving someone a suspension for tripping? Apples and oranges I know, but both a charging penalty and tripping aren’t exactly on the same level as, say, boarding.

    There wasn’t any contact made with the head, nor was there any visible intent to injure. Leaving your feet to make a hit is simply a 2-minute penalty.

    Do the refs ever get punished for making bad calls? Suspension NO, charging yes. Did he come off his feet before contact or did the hit throw him up in the air?

    If your stick is off the ice, your gloves are at chest level and you jump upwards into the player it’s intent to injure. Players aren’t stupid.

    Not a chance. Volchenkov should have his head up and he would bave been able to avoid the hit or be prepared. Suspending a player for a big hit is ridiculous hockey is a contact game. He may have left his feet or he may of come off as he was hitting him. Either way it should not be a suspension maybe a minor penalty for charging and that is big maybe. There is no intent to injure either if he wanted to hurt him be would have stuck his elbow up. His hands were in the chest not the head.

    Volchenkov on the hit: “It was a jump, but it’s hockey. There’s contact sometimes….I’m sure he was trying just to hit me, but he jumped”

    maybe i need to see it from a different angle, but that looked like a clean hit to me

    Keep your head up. Clean hit.

    NO! Not a head shot, take the skirts off and play

    Yes he left his feet split second before contact. But did not launch himself. Have to remember most players laying a big hit like this one do indeed leave their feet just before contact. No problem with it as long as not to the head and stick and elbows are down and close to their body. In my mind this a complete legal good check
