For those of you who have been under a rock, Aaron Rome of the Vancouver Canucks has been suspended for the rest of the Stanley Cup because of this cheap shot on Nathan Horton. For me it’s a tough call, he did go high and it was not the cleanest play in hockey, but I’ve seen worse. I don’t think Rome had malicious intent. Then again, I could be totally wrong. Either way, it’s part of hockey, and we have video proof of that…
Take a look at five other nasty hits from the NHL….
(5) Zdeno Chara’s hit on Max Pacioretty (I know this wasn’t in the playoffs but the two teams played!)
Nasty hits seem to follow the Bruins this year eh? This one just makes you cringe.
(4) Douglas Murray Nails Ryan Kessler
This one isn’t that bad at all. It almost makes you laugh. Like I said before, the difference between this hit and Rome’s is a fraction of body placement.
(3) Raffi Torres Destroys Brent Seabrook
Torres absolutely annihilates Seabrook here, and gets a deserved penalty.
(2) Kronwall levels Clowe
Video is a little choppy, but you get the idea. It hurts when you land directly on the ice like that with your butt!
(1) The Cheap Little Face Shot
This isn’t a bone-crusher, but it’s still cheap.
Bonus! Timmy Thomas Drills Henrik Sedin
Because I cheated on the first one! Awesome, just awesome
