Keith Hit Thread

459 posts in this topic

It's a borderline hit that happens almost every game. I can't believe it's such an issue.

The worst part of this is that pretty much no matter what happens the Canucks get screwed over the most. Keith being out of the lineup for a few games is hardly punishment. He gets some rest for the playoffs. If Daniel has a concussion who knows how long he'll be out.

If the NHL actually wanted to punish the Hawks for this he should miss a playoff game.

Or maybe the NHL should take a page from the NFL and suspend the coach, assistant coach, GM, secretary, popcorn vendor and neuter all the owner's children

You nailed it. Ya, the Canucks went thru the motions but at the end of the game the Hawks didn't pay the physical price they had to for there to be a clear message not only to other teams they will face down the road but also to the NHL reffing. Once again the refs were allowed to minimize this hit with 2 minutes followed by miscondicts and PPs to the Hawks for half hearted attempts at payback. The book on Van was written by the Hawks not the Bruins. It makes no dif whether the retribution was inflicted on Keith it could just as easily been Kane. Bottom line was someone had to pay for the Keith hit and they did not!

Hawks fans on the hit (on hf)

"I really don't see intent to injure in this hit. In fact, I think Sedin embellished the elbow. The hit was clean as Sedin was in proximity of the puck (above his head) and it is debatable that a call should have been made at all. Shanahan will look at this and laugh ... take the hit and suck it up, Canucks.

I can see Shanahan's suspension video already ... "Hello, I'm Brendan Shanahan of the National Hockey League's department of player safety. On Wednesday night, an incident occurred in Chicago where Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks blatantly made an elbow shot using his head as a weapon against Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks. He then proceeded to roll around on the ice as if he was hurt.

It is important to note that Daniel Sedin is a repeat offender, having dived and cried throughout most of his career. We also take into consideration the size of his head and that this can be used as a weapon.

The department of player safety has ruled to suspend Daniel Sedin five games."

"If the league wants these hits out of the game, then Sedin should get 1 game himself for the late, high hit directly on Keith's head. Keith should get 2 for a high elbow on a player who didn't play the puck. End of story IMO."

"Why don't you take another look at the video. Your Dman sends a suicide pass to Daniel, Keith delivers a solid check, and Daniel proceeds to roll around on the ice like he is shot. The puck was in the vicinity and could have been played if it wasn't such a crap pass to begin with.

If you think this is suspendable, why dont you youtube Bure's hit on Churla. Churla didn't embellish and still no penalty and no suspension. Suck it up.

If Keith gets suspended for 5 (which he shouldn't), then Sedin should get 5 as well as soon as he is cleared to play."

"Sedin was the guy who started it, Keith finished it. Get what you deserve"

Lulzer Sulzer haha hawks fans telling it "as it is" hahahaaaa

Will there be a call on the hit? Questionable, maybe if Keith got a misconduct...

This is the NHL were talking about.

Considering Doan got 3 games and he is a repeat offender, Keith will probably get 1-2 (don't think he's been fined/suspended before?).

If I recall correctly, I earned my first ban from their board for saying the same thing during our playoff series against them.... they have a wee bit of a problem with truth over there. :lol:

Our 1st line guy was injured on a dirty hit. If this doesn't land him 5+ games I don't know what can.

Pay the physical price...? Are you kidding me man? The Canucks did everything short of another Bertuzzi Moore incident last night. They handled it perfectly if you ask me.

The response by the Canucks was definitely NOT enough, the situation should have been dealt with that shift or the next when Keith was out there. Seriously disappointed and slightly concerned at the Canucks inability to stick up for their leading goal-scorer.

Like that was just straight up embarrassing... Do something, dont leave it up to the league to decide cause he's gonna get 3 games suspension and we're gonna be without our top guy!
