As Joe Buck said when Randy Moss mooned the Green Bay fans, “this is a despicable act.” Here it is, the video of the Oilers Chris Simon’s nasty slash on Ranger Ryan Hollweg’s noggin. It’s hard to see, so keep your eyes fixed to the top of the screen.
The sad thing is…
- The NHL kind of needed a controversial issue like this to get a lot of play in the mainstream media
- Bad fights/brutal hits are the only way they’re getting recognition
I for one think that was disgusting and that Simon should be suspended for the duration of the season.Â As Michael David Smith points out at Fanhouse, quite the irony, the slash occured exactly three years to the day after Todd Bertuzzi’s hit on Steve Moore.
That was criminal.
