That was nuts, but the reactions seem pretty mixed. Some people argue it was a perfectly legal hit while others say it was over the top, dirty, and the guy should be suspended.

Great observation. I'm not huge on hockey so I'm not qualified to make an opinion as to if the hit was clean or not. It looked pretty damn brutal though.

at first i thought that was a borderline kind of hit.. now that i think about... DIRTY HIT. Suspension is necessary for that DB. Could have paralyzed him

Hockey fan here (Gretzky FTW). More old school players will tell you that the hit was good. This is reflected by the league not suspending Tom Wilson for that play. In hockey, you get suspended for a predatory hit or a dirty punishing hit. The NHL ruled that the hit was a clean punishing hit, not predatory or otherwise illegal. Many people have been calling for the NHL to change their rules, making charging hits from behind or in other vulnerable positions illegal.

So I guess by the ruling it may be fair to say that hockey's still in some way more hardcore than football is.

minus 400lb mini-hulks smashing into other players at high speeds in football i would say that hockey has its factors of hardcore. Hockey is the only sport where they let fights go, where the object (ball, puck, w.e.) travels at fast enough speeds to shatter your jaw, and where peoples throats have been slit while playing.
