Lots to break down here in this so I’m going to call it how I see it.
- Kane gets a shoulder to the mouth, that to me is what it looks like. Do I think it’s intentional? No, I don’t. I don’t because Chara is 11 feet tall and his shoulder would line up to Kanes face. However, intention doesn’t really matter when it comes to suspensions. It’s all about the “principle point of contact.”
- Good for Kane going after Chara. It takes an enormous ball bag to go after Zdeno Chara and thats exactly what he did. Now I know there are going to be a ton of people who don’t like that he “jumped him” and to those people I ask what the fuck else is he going to do? It’s no secret that Zdeno Chara is a mammoth of a human and you need to do whatever you possibly can to gain some sort of advantage on big Z. Leading me to my last point..
- Zdeno Chara is probably the last human on Earth I’d want to fuck with and no thats not an exaggeration. I think if you put myself and him in a ring it would take him 30 seconds to literally rip me limb by limb and beat me with them. Look at this face.
DeBrusk knows what’s good.
The league is going to look at the hit, as they should and you’re probably going to see him get a game or two. Again, I don’t think he intentionally meant to shoulder Kane in the face because if he really wanted to he could’ve knocked his head off and I mean that literally.
