Is Drew Doughty’s hit on T.J. Oshie suspension-worthy?

Nov 22, 2011, 11:58 PM EDT

With about 1.5 seconds left in the Los Angeles Kings’ tight 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues, T.J. Oshie went into the corner only to awkwardly fall after a Drew Doughty hit. Doughty received a two-minute minor for crosschecking on that play, but some believe that he deserves a fine and/or suspension. Here’s some analysis of that questionable hit from Versus; feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.

    never liked Oshie because he is a dirty player (in my eyes at least) and the Blues are coming off a game against the Wild where two players took cheap shots and one was at the last second of the game too, that said. Yes, cheap shot. Doughty should get a 2 gamer. Dangerous play against in the corner but on Drew’s defense I can’t imagine he thought the cross check would have “worked” as well as it had. Not a fan of either team and probably dislike the Blues more than the Kings but I’m an honest man and just saying what I think happened.

    (long story short) – I doubt Doughty intended for the cross check to send T.J screaming into the board face first, but heck, it happened. Two gamer, send a message to the league with a “star” getting the ban!

    What do you guys think?

    Saw the play Daughtery was lazy deserves at least 2 maybe 3 for being reckless and since Shanny has been talking about this stuff drop the hammer give him 4. As for Wild game watched it sorry didn’t follow your thought process unless you are referencing the Wilds Sutterbacks antics Oh you must be Minnesota fan Oshie a dirty player, get a grip

      are you serious or just homer blind? Oshie is a dirty player and has been his whole life. I’ve watched T.J. play since the day he moved to Warroad. “Get a grip”, HA. Thanks for the laugh.

      Not taking anything away from the MN high school kid, he is a great player and plays a certain style of game at the highest level. A very skilled player but also is a “dirty” guy. Take that for what you want

    You are hilarious you answered my observation Homer from MN talk about being blind no comment on Wild player yes that’s right keep up stay on point. I could give flip if you watched Oshie as high school player I suppose at UND too he was really dirty there and he really dirty NHL. You uncovered a huge story Oshie as a Dirty Player penalties suspensions it all adds up thanks for enlightening us all….

      Why would I comment on the “wild player” when that wasn’t a point of the original conversation, you brought that in late… Also your comments make little sense. I mean read what you last posted and as yourself if that looks like an intelligent argument

    Ok read your first post, you reference Oshie and Wild game I said(Follow along) did you see Wild player as reference dirty play. Since that was a game you said you watched Oshie Where it was clear that the dirty play was Wild (Follow along) as you reference the game. You said said watched Oshie as Kid in high and such, and know he was dirty player from HS? I said (Follow along) I could care less what you saw and it has no merits as Oshie had no suspensions or penalties through his career to verify your comments. I am sorry you are confused and delusional (Follow Along) get the facts stay on point and this one for you (Follow Along) simple advise, know of what you speak or don’t speak at all.
