Robert and Tucker hits…
Regarding the Leaf and Islander game this Friday, what did you all think of the hits that Roberts and Tucker gave out?
Personally as a Leaf fan you might think I am a little bias, but seriously I did not think they were cheap or worth suspension.
Gary Roberts was in the middle of his check and could do little to avoid Jonnson, who saw him coming.
Besides didn’t Mike Peca do almost the exact same thing to a player earlier this year as well? (I forget who it was), but the guy was carried out on a strecher…
As for Tucker…once again clean. Mike carries out those types of hits all the time. There harsh, but clean.
It really sucks as that Jonnson is out and maybe Peca (as a Leaf fan, I know all about injuries). I wouldn’t count the Isle’s out at all though.
Anyway what’s your opinion…and I know there are a lot of Leaf haters on this site, but please try and remain as unbias as possible.
