after seeing his Scott Hartnell's knee to knee take out of Johnthan Cheechoo, i hope this wake's up the anti-fighting crowd in NHL. Hartnell disgraceful hit on Cheechoo was dirty and thugish. Hartnell and other no name players know they can get away with this crap throughout the NHL because of the instagator rule.

This hit also shows that players have zero respect for each other. People want to cry and complain about the dirty hits around the NHL, take out the instagator rule, let the players police themselves.

As for Scott Hartnell, a player with his talent belongs in the press box eating popcorn instead on the ice looking for their next player to put on the IR. Suspend his sorry ass for the rest of this series.

The refs are also at fault for not giving him the game miscoduct to send a message that any dirty plays will not be tolorated.....

No offense, but just because you don't know Scott Hartnell doesn't mean he's a thug or a waste of space in the NHL. He had 39 points in 64 games. Only 4 players on the Flyers roster had as many points as Hartnell, and 3 of those playes more games. I'm sure you've seen Hartnell play enough times to count on one hand, which clearly makes you an expert. And forget the fact that he was going high on Cheechoo. I'll be the first to admit if he poked his knee out sideways to catch him, but, he didn't. I'm sorry the Preds took Forsberg from your precious Flyers but that doesn't mean all Preds are no-namers. I'm sure you were one of the "WHO'S SCOTTIE UPSHALL??" Flyer fans too. Good call.

By the way, Hartnell DID get a game misconduct. He was ejected. Where are you getting your information? It's clearly not by watching the game.

This blogger obviously is new to the game of hockey. There WAS a Game Misconduct called on Hartnell last night for the collision with Cheechoo. Unfortunate as it is, that was NOT intentional or done with malice. A very unfortunate accident...
