Hockey bloggers need to have their diapers changed.

So after every hockey blog on the planet has had their say on the Doug Weight / Brandon Sutter hit (and they were all the exact same take by the way), I would like to summarize it in 3 easy to read points.

  • Yes, it was a very serious hit that lead to a young a talented kid to go to the hospital..blah balh blah...carrer ending,....blah, blah, blah,....something has to give...blah blah blah.
  • The hit itself was clean, and if Brandon had gotten up after, everybody would be cheering it, and putting it on Celebrity endorsed Hockey DVD's to fill the shells every December. The fact is, he didn't. So now suddenly everybody has a conscience, and thinks we have to do something about it. How about we just agree that it was unfortunate, and move on. If it was a hit from behind or something I could hear the argument, but come on.
  • Hockey is a tough sport. So shut up, and stop acting like such a pussy.
I could really rant on this for another 8 pages or so, but in reality it just comes down to those 3 points. And even then, I feel I said too much. Let's try it again...

  • Life is precious.
  • Hits are rad.
  • Don't be a baby.
Yes. That works much better.
