It wasn't that cool.. I love the Sedins but get real here.
Brown threw a clean hit on Henrik.. and we whine about it.
Henrik cheap shots Browns face.. and we endorse it.
i still don't see henrik's elbow/hand really making hard contact with brown's face to be honest, though i have seen the reply so many times. I saw Brown snapped his head back but the first angle from across the ice seemed to show henrik hitting brown's head with his elbow (0:25) and his hand was moving downward toward brown's face (but no apparent contact, i.e. brown's head didn't move in the same direction of henrik's hand trajectory) after he skated by (0:26). However, from the other angle it looked like that henrik's elbow didn't make contact with brown's face as I saw some gap between his elbow and brown's visor (see 0:34). Instead, the video seemed to have shown that he backhand slap brown's face (which has already been shown not true according to the first camera angle). Combining the evidence from the two camera angles, I really don't think Henrik cheap shot Brown with either the initial pass by nor with the following arm movement. The nose bleed must come from previous contact that made him drop onto the ice initially, or by tangential contact with brown's visor (knocking it back to hit Brown's nose).
If Henrik really want to hurt Brown ala Torres style, he would be out with a concussion forever as his head was the primary and ONLY target exposed for a vicious elbow.
