With all the talk of picking, blindside hits, and the leaving one's feet that has dominated the discussion this season, it's often easy to forget that there are all sorts of dirty hits that have nothing to do with the head.
With that in mind, I'd like to thank P.K. Subban for reminding us all of the effectiveness of the traditional slewfoot.
One imagines Chris Kunitz -- not to mention Pittsburgh Penguins fans -- will be far less appreciative.
Now, there appears to be some debate over whether or not this was a slewfoot or, say, a genial and fortuitous coming together of Subban and Kunitz's boots. For the naysayers, here's another angle, courtesy @TPBDerek:
Yeah. That's a slewfoot.
And now we turn to the question of Shanaban-ability. Is this incident worthy of supplemental discipline? I'm of the mind that it is, especially since Subban appears to be developing a knack for slewfoot-y tendencies.
Here he is, pulling a similar stunt on Brandon Dubinsky.
