Nah Scott Stevens was a dirty bastard that ruined Paul Kariya's career, what Romanov did wasn't a dirty elbow, it was clean

That looked eerily familiar to PK’s extermination of the Rat hit

CLEANNN what a hit.

How sad, that it has to be said of a clean hit that no response was given. What a crap league. If that's tom Wilson he gets suspended, what a joke.

Hes a beauty. Just sad habs will prob trade him for some french player who cant perform in a tough market. Or until Bergy tells him take it or leave it. Lol

Open ice hits is an artform, a forgotten artform in the no hit NHL of today.

Scott Stevens was the master of open ice hits, at 5'11" he wasn't tall but he was a BIG MAN on the ice ;)

Almost perfect 9/10. Orlov's hip check on Duchene top1 still secured.

No kidding! Somebody got checked hard and their wasn't a fight! Wow! "-Game on! -Yeah, game on!"
Bolo Month ago
To me the location of that hit, and that overall scene reminded of that hit by subban on marchand but the subban hit was more vicious for sure because Marchand went straight to his bench because he felt some pain.
Marchand was lucky if he is still alive

Except Brannstrom isn’t hated by the whole league 😂

That was the very best moment of PK Subban in Montreal hehe

I know it’s a clean hit and all but it was a big hit so I kind of would’ve expected a little scrum to insue especially since he is one of the younger guys on the team (yes I know Romanov is younger than him)
Scarzey_ Month ago
It’s good that there wasn’t. That is a totally legal and nice hit and it’s just so annoying how everyone fights over everything now

How its done in every league outside north america. Clean hit - > keep playing
Mariusz Czerkawski style. Quick back in play, no crying, no knock out like Modano/Lindros. True big players both. (I meant Romanov and Brannstroms ofc)

That’s how it’s done! Across ice, big hit and no butt hurt retaliation!

"no butt hurt retaliation!" it triggers me so much when players flip out over 1 big hit
Jonathan Holstein
No head contact either, and no hitting the side of the player only to kill him, a surgeon's accuracy
Dejan Siljegovic
Good hit! Way to get back up and play... his own teammate did more damage on the drive by
I remember Wilson and Ovi hit each other on full speed full contact. Coach was about to get paralized.
