Found January 29, 2013 on Kukla's Korner:
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, - Hopefully Landeskog makes a full recovery. Hate to see anyone, much less a 20-year-old with so much in front of him, run into what could be concussion trouble. Brendan Shanahan is taking some heat for not suspending Brad Stuart for the hit, but Stuart did not target the head, didn't leave his feet before impact, kept his elbow tucked in and certainly did not intend to injure. The outcome, however, is potentially awful. No one wants to see that. - I asked GMGM (as local fans call him) about one executive's assessment of Ovechkin, that "he's too big."
