I and many others, seem to truly be sick of writers/fans whinning about a guy jumping another player for a nice hit. This was a questionable hit, but Brower doesn't get to see the hit 3-4 times on review and then make a decision on weather or not to fight a guy. Brower is a great teamate and looks after his team very well. Although he is not a "fighter," he does seem to fight well if need be. He gave the play time to wind down in the offensive zone (smart hockey sense) then made a decission to go after the guy who hit their leading scorer. Now, of course we would all like to see Kane actually take care of himself, but we also know he can't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. I am truly a Hawks fan, but Brower did NOT jump this Stralman character- he looked him in the eyes and both threw thier gloves off. Stralman knew it was coming. Do I believe Stralman meant to hit Kane the way he did...absolutely not, but it is what it is and Brower saw it so. Therefore, Stralman took a steady diet of punches and will most likely think twice before he leaves his knees out when he misses a check. Brower dominated a fight against a guy who questionably deserved it, but knew it was coming. Now, it would be interesting to see Kane vs Stralman next time they meet... I have $5 on Stralman, even though I support the Hawks.

"somebody's gotta get in there"
hands down one of the worst announcers in the league, the guy was BRUTAL when the jackets first came into the league and he's still BRUTAL, how he still has a job is beyond me


Clean hit


win Brouwer.

Jeff Rimer was never even in the Blue Jacket's organization until after the lockout.

Like others have said, good for Brouwer sticking up for a star linemate on what appeared to be a cheapshot at first glance. The hit didn't look intentional at all, but hindsight is 20/20. Clear win Brouwer.

It looks like he was going for a hip check but then realized that the puck had left Kane's stick so he started to let up and caught him with a knee. I don't think he did it on purpose. WITH THAT SAID, I am a big Blue Jackets fan and when it comes to knee on knee hits, I like seeing a nice beat down on the offending player even if he isn't a fighter. It's only right.

What did you expect to happen?

For all of you who thing Kane is a wimp, you obviously haven't been hockey fans for very long. Although the fighting has decreased a lot, this was the rule, this is the rule, and this will always be the rule:

Take a cheap shot and the star player, then be prepared to have your butt kicked.

This is hockey.

If you want to want figure skating, then I suggest you watch it instead. There has been a lot of if on the Olympics, where by the way, the USA Team that Kane is on, kicked Canada's butt tonight.

Being a hockey fan for 40 years, I think I know a little of what I'm talking about.

Kane takig abuse being in front of the net; that's his choice.

But someone taking a cheap shot because they might otherwise face losing, that's a whole nother thing.

Funny you say this....

reminds me of Chicago's announcer Eddie O a couple years ago... I like Eddie but he was ridiculous when he was saying...

"somebodys gotta get in there somebodys gotta jump in there vandermeers gotta get in there!!"

YouTube- Keith vs. Svitov

And yes, Rimmer sucks. I dont know any Jackets fans that like him.

Rimmer lives down the street from one of my buddies out at Tartan Fields.
He"ll see Rims out walking on a regular basis...
Evidently guy with a bad goatee is as big of a tool in person as he is on TV.
