If those weren't penalties, then why the hell do we have a "charging" rule anyway?

First one was borderline

Rest were fine

Kass needs to tighten helmet. They looked worse than they were because his hairstyle makes for terrible glue.

Funny how the same people calling Tkachuk a dangerous player are the same ones condoning a player for beating down on a unwilling combatant. Whether Tkachuk "deserves" it or not, Kassian's actions are just as dangerous and his intent is clearly to injure as well. Tkachuk needs to (but won't) clear up his act and Kassian needs to play smarter and not be repetitively caught in the same position and then blow a fuse costing the team a game.

Look, I despise Tchucky, I do not like him at all,

He is a #1 Ahole

but, He didn't pick his spot and go after a smurf

he went after the toughest guy on the opposing team, maybe one of the toughest in the League,

not only once but a second time

Friedman and LeBrun report that the Sharks have given up on their season.  Both say that SJS is not going to sell off their core.  Friedman says they've made it known that they see it as the same situation as back in 2014/15 where they've missed the playoffs and then went to the finals the following season.   

 

Their core is not available but pending UFAs like Brenden Dillon, Melker Karlsson are.

He went after him with cowardly hits.  Yes, woulda been worse if he was going after smaller, more skill-player.  Despite what the DOPeS said, at least one of the hits was a charge, as MT did took at least 4 strides, without gliding, to make the hit.  Perhaps the gliding on the last hit made it legal, but we've seen those called before, too.

 

If you are going to pull this crap, answer the bell, and most will be forgiven.  MT doesn't, and we see the response in Rupert's post on the previous page.

Kassian had the puck both times.......how was it cowardly?  It's a contact sport

Thatchuk is a cheap shot artist who won't ever answer for his actions the way this league is run.  Don't ever change Kassian.  

Why would he have to answer for a clean hit on a player with the puck?

Charging

First hit, it was at the side of the net, no time or space for a charge.  Second hit he was gliding, no charge.  If hits like those are illegal them there's not much hope for the game, imo.

So, the four strides he took leading into the first hit don't count?

 

The second one is borderline. Seen it called before, but seen it let go too.

 

You are correct though... I shouldn't have said cowardly hits.  Questionable would have been better wording.  The turtling is a different story.
