What do you think of Boychuk’s hit on Raymond?


Johnny Boychuk takes Mason Raymond awkwardly into the boards early in last nights game. Raymond didn’t return and was taken to hospital.

Jason Botchford via twitter: The refs told the Canucks that no penalty was called because Raymond lost an edge.

Nick Kypreos via twitter: Kypreos is told that the NHL will not further review the hit. Early speculation is that Raymond will be out 4-6 months with a back/hip injury.

Update: Dan Murphy via twitter: A source close to the Raymond family is saying that he suffered a fractured vertebrae.

What do you think of  the hit? Suspendable? (I think going forward, if you’re going to leave a comment for ‘suspendable’ questions, you should include if you are a fan of one of the teams involved, or if you are impartial. You obviously don’t have to if you don’t want to.)
