The Puck Is Not Optional - Torres suspension


Much as I really don't like Ed Olycyk as an announcer - I will admit that I'm beginning to side with him on the hit the man, don't play the puck thing.  Separate the man from the puck, ok, but with no attempt to play the puck and questionable hit - I'm inclined to agree with the suspension and would like to see it handed out more often.  Open ice hits are very dramatic and can change the tenor and complexion of a game, but the desire has to be to get the puck, not just to partially decapitate the dude who has his head down or is (in this case) reaching to control it.
