Although, I totally get Jones's retalliation reaction,
especially, after signaling for a fair catch,
(unfortunately, they weren't playing football),
and getting embarrassed, and pasted for his efforts...
but I think that it was the reknowned poet, Floyd Mayweather,
who once said...''protect yourself, at all times''.
I might take some heat for this...but this is the type of retaliatory fight the league needs to crack down on...I mean, if Falk is going to stand in traffic and reach way up to play the puck, leaving himself with his weight high and his feet together, he's going to get cranked. Jones has to make the hit...and it looked clean enough to me. Getting attacked afterward shouldn't be part of the game. Man up & take a hit....
(Was the hit high? Well with Falk on his tip-toes, I don't think so. Jones was arguably going for the body. He could have taken him out at the knees...now that would have been dirty..
falk better hope he doesn't dance with a tough guy,and if he does he better hope he is shown more class then he showed here or he is going to be stomped.PS:kid your right you dont know how much class i have,other then that leave me the **** alone kid,ok.
Open ice hits are great for the game. Leaving your feet and hitting high, not so good. Falk takes exception, especially with the Wild having 3 guys out with concussions, and Mr Jones get's what he deserves.
Koolpunch, do you realize what you even said at the end of our post? Falk is already 6' 5".......He dosent need to be on his 'tip toes'. Jones left his feet and hit him high, he had to leave his feet, he's 3 inches shorter than Falk...
Watch the slo mo replay at :46, he launches himself.....nuff said.
