what replay are you guys looking at? at no point did Ballard stick his knee out. That was clearly his hip/ass that goes out and makes contact with the other guy. Dirty hit? Gimme a break! But a clear fight win by Burish
Mailman, have you ever seen a hockey game before? You obviously have never seen Ballard before. Which knee did he stick out to hit Skille? There's only two, so that should be a simple answer. Point out at what second mark on the replay it was. Other than you and the announcer, no one else saw a knee, and even he backed down at the end. That was a perfect, clean hip check. Skille had his head down and wasn't ready, so that's on him. Ballard did nothing wrong, so he probably wasn't expecting to get jumped. Ballard fights all comers, including big guys like Brendan Witt, Iginla, Anson Carter, and Lecavalier, and the first thing he does is take off the helmet. I'd like you to point out a fight in which Ballard is the only guy wearing a shield. I'm a Hawk fan, but I've been to many Coyote games and Ballard is a throwback, who hits and fights with class.
Perfectly clean hit by Ballard, notice his feet are underneath him at the time the hip was delivered. Burish does his thing and proceeds to thrash Ballard. Hopefully Wayn-o prepares somebody to hold Burish accountable for his ambush next time they meet. Clear win to Burish.
Mailman you are out of your mind. Obviously you have never played the game. Skille has his head down coming across the blue line and Ballard steps up. Perfect hip check and if you had a clue you could watch the replay and see that Ballards leg never makes contact. Further, Burish never throws any power. You are a retard Mailman 1194, learn the game before you spout off about a clean hit.
