COLUMBUS, Ohio – Since my blog on Colby Armstrong’s hit against Marian Hossa created such a fuss, I’m going to let everyone else debate Anton Stralman’s hit on Patrick Kane Sunday.
What did you think of the hit?
Did you like what Troy Brouwer did, stepping up and fighting Stralman and earning 19 minutes in penalties? Hawks coach Joel Quenneville did.
"I thought he did exactly what we'd want him to do," Quenneville said.
I think I should explain my Hossa blog. Yes, I go back and forth as to whether the Hawks need someone to help protect their stars. Don’t we all change our minds on things as we watch the Hawks play month after month?
Some nights you love Dustin Byfuglien and some nights you want him gone, right?
I think the Hawks need another element of toughness going forward into next season, but never did I write they should get a one-dimensional enforcer type who only plays 4-5 minutes a night and just fights.
