@LoranMannIsTheMann Wow, never thought anyone would use my screen cap of that again. Here are the links to the screenshots from then:

To be honest, that's exactly what I thought of when I saw the hit.

@LoranMannIsTheMann I don't feel sorry for Toews. You skate with your head down, you deserve to get caught. Did Paul Kariya ever act as though everyone who ever cleaned his clock was a dirty player? Did he ever ask anyone to exact revenge on those guys? Nope.
Kariya simply started the "Heads-Up Hockey" program to teach kids not to do exactly what Toews did on that play. My hope is that some kids watching that hit last night remember what happened and they don't get similarly caught in a bantam game.
