    It’s hockey we don’t need nice. Kimmo doesn’t fight because every other player has a few inches on him.

    This hit should have definitely been a fine for yuns arguing. With that said though clearly it wasn’t a dirty shot by Jordan as you could tell immediately after he did it he checked on Coburn.

    Staal isnt a dirty player. he probably said, sorry bro didnt know you would go down like such a bitch.

    Gotta give Jordan props for checking if he’s okay.

    see kimmo is so nice after the hit most guys would have got into a fight with stall or get in his face but instead kimmo stood just stood there and checkd on coburn

    Thats not the point. Whether he cared if he was ok or not, he still boarded him badly, and laid a completely illegal dangerous hit. Fair fine.

    Staal did a push up off of Coburn’s back lol. Yeah some momentum

  12. March 2, 2012 at 11:19 pm | Permalink

    it’s like me walking up to you and shoving you to the ground and saying that the momentum I had from walking towards you make me shove you.

    Seriously though dude, you can’t watch that and honestly tell me he did that by accident.

    momentum doesn’t imply fully extending your arms and cross checking someone from behind. It’s ice hockey; you can stop on a dime if you wanted to. Maybe he regretted doing it after, but he clearly cross checked him from behind. 0:32

    Is everyone here serious? Look, I’m glad Staal stopped to make sure he was okay, but if you had any doubt as to if it was or wasn’t a dirty hit, repeatedly click on 0:32

    Staal has never been a dirty player and his momentum carried him he didnt mean to hit him

    How the fuck wasn’t that a suspension?

  22. February 26, 2012 at 8:41 am | Permalink

    @IRIDE4KP the puck was on giroux’s stick when he got hit retard. it left his stick quickly cause he got rocked CLEANLY. yes he came from the blindeside but he hit shoulder to shoulder. youre clearly biased, or stupid.

  23. February 21, 2012 at 2:32 pm | Permalink

    I’m happy he got fined but in all honesty I think engelyand should be suspended for his hit on giroux giroux was defenseless at that point and didn’t even have the puck how come Ronaldo gets suspended for his hit on a defenseless player but engelyand doesn’t shannahan is clearly biased

    I also think Staal should have gotten a 5 minute major. I know Staal is in now way a dirty player, but those kind of hits simply cannot be allowed in the NHL. They can end guys careers instantly.The fine…eh… I doubt Staal really cares about $2,500 and it’s not like he got suspended, which was not done and shouldn’t have been done.

    Like WOWZZZZZZZZAS said, at least players like Staal are classy enough to be concerned and not just skate away like nothing happened.

  28. February 20, 2012 at 10:32 pm | Permalink

    Ok as far as people saying Coburn interfered with Staal, I watch an absolute ton of hockey and what coburn did I’ve seen a million times. All he did was got in front of him, he had position, now if he came from the side that would be different but he had position. I’m not biased either way but if that were called a penalty, it would have been really ticky tack. He impeded his progress? Yeah in hockey, forwards always get bumped or jostled like that on every single dump in, so yeah not a penalty

  29. February 20, 2012 at 4:26 pm | Permalink

    If anyone was getting interference it would be Coburn he impeaded Stall.

    The great part was the fact that this was only a 2 minute penalty and keemo timonen also got 2 mins for arguing why it wasnt a 5 minute call.. so they played 4 on 4… 2,500 dollars=horseshit.

  32. February 19, 2012 at 4:09 pm | Permalink

    At least Staal was classy enough to be concerned, he knew right away he hurt him and looked sorry :(

  33. February 19, 2012 at 2:43 pm | Permalink

    @SAMPOPESMEELS However, there was interference on the play. Even if Staal’s hit hadn’t been from behind, Coburn never touched the puck. For all the penguin bandwagoners out there, that’s interference.

  34. February 19, 2012 at 2:41 pm | Permalink

    Coburn is entitled to his space. He skated in front of Staal at the circle but Staal made just as much contact with Coburn as Coburn did with Staal. No penalty there.

  35. February 19, 2012 at 2:34 pm | Permalink

    @razorslice17 are you kidding me? Yes, Coburn did interfere with Staal a bit but that’s a textbook hit from behind that can end a guys career. Take your biased opinion elsewhere.

  36. February 19, 2012 at 1:01 pm | Permalink

    I think stall meant clearly meant to hit coburn, but just not as hard as he did, looks like he just meant to give him a little shove and coburn went flying.

  37. February 19, 2012 at 12:59 pm | Permalink

    nah what stall did was wrong – text book check from behind in the boards just glad to see some class in a ever increasing classless NHL – I honestly wonder what wuld happen if Cooke did the hit

    I’m a Flyers fan but I honestly don’t think Staal should have been fined for that. He obviously didn’t mean to do it, you could see him checking Coburn was ok right away.

  41. February 19, 2012 at 2:20 am | Permalink

    hey coburn how does staals dick taste

  42. February 18, 2012 at 9:59 pm | Permalink

    haha that was class. he didnt mean to do that

  43. February 18, 2012 at 9:52 pm | Permalink

    Re-read my comment. I was blaming Coburn. Staal shouldn’t have even been fined.

  44. February 18, 2012 at 9:42 pm | Permalink

    @razorslice17 give me a break he has no record, this is fair. He is not dirty and prob didnt realize he would fly forward that far, coburn isnt a small guy

  45. February 18, 2012 at 9:14 pm | Permalink

    What a joke. When Staal hit the faceoff circle Coburn started interfering with him and at the last second Coburn saw Staal coming in and literally stopped dead right in front of him. Coburn was playing dirty and like an idiot and got hurt. Staal deserved no supplementary discipline.

    I think some of the fault has to be put on Coburn, he stopped 5 ft from the boards knowing Staal was right on him. Coburn was trying to interfere with Staal by slowing him up, it was a good call on the ice but if your Coburn you have to be accountable for your actions.

    You can clearly see Jordan didn’t mean it , you could see his concern about Coburn after the hit.
