The critical factor is time. Since the opposing player went outside/inside Thrower was left with milliseconds to decide how to hit and adjust his body accordingly. I am against all hits to the head just like I am against all high-sticking but we all realize that sometimes it's an unavoidable accident. He should be punished nevertheless in order to assure that all players take responsibility for the hits they make. However, this type of hit is circumstantial and all defence men (even Lady Byng candidates) will occasionally infringe.

Politics was always a vile endeavour because of corporate cash and greed not because we're running out of retired farmers FFS. Next you'll be waxing nostalgic for kitchen-bound womenfolk - right?

You honestly believe Ottawa is paying any kind of special attention to DD?

Well said. A critic is not a hater except in the eyes of the insecure.

The only energy I see DD expend is his crawling around on all fours after getting slapped-aside by bored defencemen.
