A player has to play the puck on a goalie handling it (right or wrong). Edler was not playing the puck, if you watch, he brings his arms up to throw a hit. He had no intention on playing the puck and then ran over Smith. He got a 5 min major for Charging…that says something there.
Goalies are protected and not allowed to be hit, whether we agree with that part or not. Lupul got 2 games for a headshot that looked like there was intent…I have no problem with the suspension btw. That said, to me, then Edler deserves 2 games for hitting a player intentionally that was vulnerable. Just my opinion.
