Weve seen dozens of suspensions for boarding. Many involve an element of charging this doesnt. Nearly all involve the he should have never delivered the hit if he saw his numbers mantra that players are taught from the time theyre first able to grip a stick. The first time Seidenberg sees Toews numbers is when the Blackhawks captain is rolling on the ground. Again: Its a battle for a loose puck. Claude Julien came off as unfeeling in his postgame comments, but hes sorta correct: I certainly dont like seeing those kinds of things, but this is where its important to take care of ourselves. So, I view that five-on-three were going to close a gap quickly, and Dennis [Seidenberg] is a strong individual, said Julien. Is he supposed to get weak because of that situation? Or he just plays to his strength. I wasnt happy. I looked at it, and it could be arguable, but from my end of it I think its what it is. Our guys need to finish their checks and sure, youve got to be careful, but Im sure he knew that [Seidenberg] was coming. Thats code for Toews turned his back to the play, which is a bit much. But his body positioning to play the puck helped turn a shoulder hit into one from behind. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-gets-it-right-with-no-hearing-for-seidenberg-on-jonathan-toews-hit-163034029.html
