Was the hit completely unnecessary or only mostly?

Winnipeg had pulled their goalie, Montreal cleared the zone and Evans negated icing there was no one within 30 feet of Evans. Puck crosses goal line, Evans tucks it in, Schiefele hits Evans at full speed. 
 

Received a 5 minute major and match penalty for charging. Every analyst and their sister thinks Schiefele will be suspended for the rest of the series. I think it merits a suspension, but for the rest of the series I don’t know. He was trying to make a play on the puck and finish his check. A couple games would fit the crime.

Nikolaj Ehlers (#27 in blue) is properly getting a lot of credit for holding the scrum back from the injured Evans.  

Man, Tom Wilson just can't help himself. He's not just a goon, but he undermines his actual ability when he pulls stupid shit like this. He should be out for awhile. But it's the NHL, and th

I’m having a hard time seeing this. First, you said someone is really going to get hurt one of these days, even though the kid is out with a concussion. Then, you said you were thinking of something m

I'll give Schiefele just enough credit to assume he thought he might still be able to prevent the empty-net goal as he charged at Evans, but it was a high hit and extremely reckless. 

There ought to be some sort of suspension here but I'd really hesitate to try to guess what the NHL will come up with here. Guess there have already been some threats, so things might get dicey if he comes back this series.

Really, it is a sort of odd situation. You don't see hits in that kind of position very often. Unless he never noticed Schiefele, Evans had to know he was putting himself in a dangerous spot, but obviously he wanted to score that goal and secure the game.

Nasty hit near the end of the Montreal Winnipeg game, where a Winnipeg player charged a Montreal player and just leveled him. Not sure the names of the players.

Montreal player = Jake Evans

Winnipeg player = Mark Scheifele

Next time you should post a video so we can all look at it.

well I believe completely, we will see what the league does. Announcers suggesting suspension.

My post was right after the incident, a video wasn't available at that time.

I understand the frustration of the team mates but fighting right next to the fallen player who very likely had sever injury was only putting him more at risk.  I understand how hard to control the emotions of the moment but they really needed to not risk moving him.

Hope he is alright.

Just re-watched it.  He clearly did the right thing in protecting the player.  I missed that when I initially viewed it.

  I have no vested interest in either the Jets nor the Habs, but I'm not a huge fan of that hit.  In my eyes, Schiefele was reacting because he just got lit up for an empty net goal. 

  I'd love to see him suspended for it, but as posted above you can never tell which part of the dartboard the blindfolded monkeys at DOPS will hit with their throw.

Four games for Schiefele.

We were talking about this at work this afternoon.  Predatory was how I described it.  I'm shocked to hear the same term come from the Department.

The League determined he made no play on the puck, had he made a play on the puck, he probably doesn’t get suspended. Maybe a 5 and 10, but not suspended...

Believe it or not, the NHL may have actually learned a lesson from that latest Tom Wilson incident.

Just as well. Didn't want to see my favorite team running around and taking penalties tonight.

Four games seems about right, but I was guessing they'd chop it to two or three because Scheifele had no priors.

I think the four-game suspension is a step in the right direction for the NHL. The NHL could stop violent and inappropriate hits very quickly by handing out penalties and suspensions like this. I enjoy good solid checking in hockey, but stuff like this needs to be gone.

I think four games is weak. This should have been ten or something.

Maybe, but it is severe in the aspect it is the playoffs. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing more suspension time. Somebody's really going to get hurt one of these days.

You and I must have different definitions of “really hurt.” Jake Evans is out indefinitely with a concussion.

    • Congrats to Schauffele! May not be a major but it ranks high on the list of a golfers resume. It does with me anyway.....
    • Mine was my mother.  She was a very angry person with a temper.   Golf was not her game.  She took it up to spend time with me when I was a teenager, after I started playing when I was a caddie. she had a violent, slashing swing.   Her clubs were a set of old MacGregor blades and she would hit the 2-iron a lot off the tee.   It would go far, but rarely where she wanted.  Seriously, it was like some type of hockey motion. she was easily frustrated and had zero short game.  She would ping pong back and forth across the green because her chipping miss was blading the ball.  She’d get mad, start swearing and sometimes take 4 chips/pitches around the green.  Several times I’d have to apologize because she’d get mad and swear so much.  If she was in a bunker, forget it.  Just run! Her main quirk was water though.   It could be a lake or a 2 foot wide stream in front of her.  She’d find it.   We were in Myrtle Beach at Wild Wing Hummingbird years ago and there is a creek hat winds through.  She was about 20 feet in front of he creek that was only a couple of feet deep in front of her.  Sure enough, she topped it and it went in the creek, carried away by the current.   She was super pissed and I couldn’t stop laughing.   We didn’t talk for most of the rest of the day. 
    • Played in an event with a pair that both felt the need to stretch and practically do calisthenics on the first tee right behind me from my warm up, address and right through my swing. I guess they didn’t arrive early enough. It was almost like a parody sketch.    one of the guys was a super nervous sort that could not be still or refrain from fidgeting. He liked to stand on the green behind the flag and be in constant motion. I typically don’t mind where people stand or even if they move around a little, but this was almost like the student section waving giant foam fingers when the opponent is attempting a field goal, extra point, or foul shot. he seemed like a nice guy, just oblivious 
    • Day 67, July 31, 2021 More three-quarter swing stuff today. I really am trying to shorten the backswing.
    • What a shot into 18 with all that pressure.  Great playing Xander.
