past week, Ryan Little was given an extra game suspension for his hit on
Michigan Tech's Jujhar Khaira, the video of that hit can be seen here. I don’t think many of us have a problem
with the extra game suspension, unless maybe you’re a Wisconsin Badger fan.
safety should be paramount. Yeah, I am rolling my eyes right now.
I do have a problem with his the take down is the move that Khaira put on UW
sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe,
you can see by the pictures included that this was an egregious and dangerous
move and should have warranted at least a five minute major and a game
look at the picture you will notice that the on ice official is looking right
at the play.
believe that Little’s hit is grounds for a one game suspension, you have a
player head hunting an unexpecting player in a vulnerable position that doesn't even
appear to be looking at the player that’s bearing down on him. When I first saw
this hit I immediately thought of the Raffie Torres hit on Marian Hossa. The Little hit warrants a
suspension in the NHL as well. I don’t think that many of us have a problem
with that call.
I do have a problem with is Khaira’s attempting to remove McCade’s head from
the rest of his body and only receiving a two minute minor for
holding. Kind of makes one scratch their head. I have seen on line
where some have likened the move to a WWE take-down.
question that I have is, did the refs inept response to the Khaira bush league
move on Jake McCabe cause Little to take matters into his own hands?
asked sent an email to the WCHA’s Doug Spencer and this is the response that I
We have no comment at
this time. But I passed your note on to the Commissioner & Supervisor and
if there is we will let you know asap.
