IMHO this is a much more violent and dangerous hit done with more intent to hurt and injure than the Rau hit... Thank you Goon for finally finding video of this

Look at who the WCHA commissioner is and where he went to school. You do the math.

It would have been a strong stance by the wcha to suspend 2 players from different teams on the same night. Of course the wcha is a joke and usually does not get anything right, on the ice or off. Kristo should have been suspended several weekends ago as well...

But he's on my favorite team. That means he can't be suspended or whatever everyone always argues. He won't play this weekend... call it a suspension

Pfft, Blood is a goon and deserved it, Zucker is not and didn't.

That was Blood's punishment for fighing in the hand shake line.

Thus Blood proved amazing foresight when he tripped and fell onto Rau in the handshake line.

Zucker just needs to cheapshot Brown and the circle will be complete!

Probably because the hit was not late (Blood was playing the puck) and the shot was not to the guy's head. Was it worthy of a penalty? Absolutely. Then again, so does the slash that has resulted in Brown being sidelined with an undisclosed injury...

Rau came from center ice to hit a guy who had already released the puck for some time and gave him a hard shot to the chin. The WCHA has already talked about cracking down on hits to the head, so the suspension (while capricious) isn't all that surprising to someone without maroon and gold glasses on.

Saturday night Ben Blood did the same hit to Jack Connolly, I'm guessing you had the blinders on for that one.

two hands directly to the head, when a guy isnt looking, a second after he releases the puck,
or a hit from behind, at an acute angle along the boards to a guy carrying the puck (i.e. not directly into, and perpendicular to the boards)?

huh... and Blood usually does the perpendicular thing.

I think someone has a crush on Ben Blood.

Both were dangerous hits. However, based on the precedent set by the WCHA this season, neither deserved a DQ. Or if one did, both did, and all dangerous hits from this point out do.

I'll tell you the real reason Rau and only Rau got suspended. His hit happened on national television and the broadcast team brought up supplemental discipline. To anyone thinking this was some sort of paradigm shift for the WCHA and that supplemental discipline will be handed out for these types of hits from here on out, you're kidding yourself.

The WCHA has been very tight and very consistent in making these calls (5+ game) this season (as they should), but also very consistent in not handing out DQs for hits to the head or checks from behind this season (mixed feelings on that).

If this does signal a change in the discipline for these types of hits, I'm on board with the suspension and praise the league for taking a tough stance on dangerous hits. However, if it goes back to business as usual and no more DQs are handed out for dangerous hits, then I think the WCHA should be rightfully questioned for the inconsistent handling of the discipline for Rau.

Both games were on national television and both announcing teams talked about what could happen.

I didn't hear them bring it up after Brown's hit. If that's the case, then I have no explanation for why both didn't result in a DQ. Makes no sense.

Here's hoping we can have individual threads for every hit on video somewhere.

I understand it's Wisconsin and ND this weekend.

Who will out-cheapshot who?
