You make an excellent point but as a Rangers fan, I had no issues with the hit in the first place. That was an oldtime hockey hit that guys like Beck, Fotiu, and Holmgren made all the time that somehow today have become penalties!
They allow all the cheapshots and stickwork and take out the good hard clean hitting from the game!
Between Bettman and what they have done to the game, it is really a sh*tty product today!
I would of given McIllrath a double minor and that would of been it and I'm a Ranger/Whale guy!
