He lined him up, he hit him high, he hit him late, and he injured his target.

If you can't find a justification for suspension there, then you are just another in a long list of blind homers on this site who will stop at nothing to defend their own players while assailing the opposing ones for the same conduct.

That would make you the moron.

Now go back into the hole from whence you came.
It was charging sure. Late, yeah but as a ref I see stuff like that all the time in highschool games (finish your checks boys!!!!!). Hit him high? I guess if hitting a guy in the chest is high. And if it wasn't for the injury it'd be a 2 minute minor at most.

So you're basically left with a 5 minute major because he injured the guy. A suspension is ludicrous.


and I believe that post count matters !
I'd believe that too if I had a neckbeard and sores on my *** from not leaving my chair for 48 straight hours.

Think of it this way Gopher fans... would you WANT Rau out on the ice with the Pios tomorrow night?

Actually yes, let Denver get stupid and get a 5 min major tomorrow night.

So, I have a question. Two guys collide. One guy gets injured. DQ the other guy right?

No no no no no no. If I'm a post whore, brent is so far beyond that. That's like, Kim Kardashian-esque.

I can admit I'm a post-whore. You, however, cannot admit when you're wrong. Please, step down from the Ivory Tower. The view is better from down here, anyway. :D

I may be on an ivory tower but I'm still right. :)

Yeah, he didn't hit him in the chest. You can see Rau raising his arms up when laying the hit. The youtube vid still doesn't do any justice. In the Gopher Post-Game when Woog was commenting on it(who btw, also thought it was high but maybe this will be the time Gophers say he doesn't know anything), you can see Zucker's head ricochet off the plexiglass.

It deserved a 5-minute major and game misconduct. Suspension? No, I don't think so.

As opposed to a Sioux fan saying for the first time ever that Doug Woog was right?

The problem is all I have is the youtube vid and the grainy vid from FSN. And then there were two officials who didn't see it in real time and neither put their arm up. Then when Zucker was hurt they felt obligated to call something and overreacted by calling a game misconduct.

As for his arms, a lot of times a guy will get hit in the chest and the follow through finishes high. That was happening quite often in the game I reffed the other day and is just a common phenomena in general. I don't think he contacted his head even though it did go into the glass.

It deserved the 5 and game (current game) for sure. I think the result of the hit (hitting the edge) factored into any additional penalty (which is rumored, not confirmed). If another game is added, I wouldn't be angry, nor would I think it's unfair. However, I will say said judgement would be based on the result of the hit, and not the hit itself. The hit itself would be a coin toss. The result? Obvious game. I hope that people would understand that difference.

First time? I've always liked Woog even though he can be unintelligible/incoherent sometimes. Got respect for him since he says it how it is. Now the Rug on the other hand... :)

So two important facts are missing from this thread. I was there and the hit happened right in front of me. In my opinion the hit should of resulted in a DQ. One, it was pay back and straight to the head. Zucker (as he is apt to do) ran his mouth to the Gopher bench after he scored (about 2-4 minutes before the hit). This was a stupid thing to do. I'm not justifying Rau's action in any shape or form. Simply pointing out that there was a connection. The hit was not random. Interesting that a team mate from Team USA would do this. Secondly, neither one of the refs saw the hit. Bokal raised his arm late. If he didn't see it, how can you expect him to get the call right? They can review and add the DQ after the game. You always here talk about how they are cracking down on shots to the head. If this hit isn't a DQ then that is a complete line of BS.

The video isn't exactly clear on where Rau's hands are, but given the movement of Zucker's head, my best guess is Rau got them up under his chin. Not exactly elbow to the side of the head bad, but still bad.

So again: lined up from a distance (charging), high hit, late hit, and the guy got hurt. Should the WCHA choose to add a suspension to the penalty on Rau, I will have no problem with it whatsoever. This kind of crap simply cannot be tolerated.

You can say he hit his head all you want but the video shows something completely different. THe first video clip, the one where they circle the play in red, clearly shows Rau hitting him below the head. Not the face.
