WHY is this not more than a two minute penalty?
Oh, Chappy. You crazy.
This is Hartnell finishing his check.
This is all part of the game.
This game isn’t for figure skaters.
If you want figure skating, go watch Battle of the Blades.
This is not a love song.
This is man’s game.
This is Sparta, etc.
Right. Surely this would incur a much harsher penalty than two minutes in the box right?
No supplementary disciplinary for PHI’s Scott Hartnell after last night’s hit that injured the knee of EDM’s Magnus Paajarvi. #tsn

Come on now, why would there be? It’s obvious that Hartnell is just finishing his check…into Paajarvi’s knee…with his knee.
Paajarvi was on the ice this morning in a no contact sweater, which is something around ‘amazing’ and ‘incredible’, seeing as how he crumpled to the ice like a giant bag of laundry after this hit and needed to be helped off.
Glad to see Paajarvi is OK. Doubt Hartnell would’ve gotten anything if Paajarvi was out for the remainder of the season anyway.
Have your say: Is this worth more than two minutes?
