    Uh, there are only five hits in that “top 10″ video. Did you put up the wrong clip or just not watch it before writing about it?

    Why not wait until the season and playoffs are over? some of the best hits are in the playoffs…Ask RJ Umberger or Tim Connolly

        To quote Shanny, “the head was not targeted, and was not the principle point of contact.” He was leaning forward with his head down and got lit up. End of story.

        Steelpensbucs….its funny how you were nowhere to be found with that quote on the MDZ/James Neal hit tearfest a couple weeks ago.
