    hey, no sarcasm really, but for those of us who aren`t savvy with the rules of hockey and maybe have only seen it played in the movies, can you tell us what exactly makes a check illegal? especially one like this one? thanks in advance.

    ^^ I second that, this check is illegal but fighting is "normal", or at least condoned, because the ref never stops a fight, unless they`ve fallen on the ice.....

    The reason the check was illegal was because he left his feet. You can`t do that when you make a check. Safety reasons.

    Don`t worry folks, I`m a Canadian and can help you out with these questions.

    Firstly, you cannot intentionally make a bodycheck with your elbow extended. Also, as Mr. Cobain pointed out, you must have both feet on the ice in order to make a legal check.

    Steve Downie (the Philadelphia player) obviously jumps up and into Dean McAmmond (the Ottawa player) has he comes from behind the goal and goes shoulder/elbow first into him.

    For the record, I`m an Ottawa Senators fan and I totally hope Downie gets more than a slap on the wrist for the cheap shot against McAmmond. Downie is nothing more than a goon with questionable talent and is just looking to make a name for himself early on in his hockey career.

    It sure would be worth watching plus every players who go on the ice would deserve a darwin award everytime. And there would be a lot less players world wide.

    Hockey! Hockey!

    "DANG! That was like a football hit."
    Pssshh... football hit. XD

    Hockey is already worth watching Buddy. :-D

    You still get a 5 minute penalty for fighting, I think fighting is condoned because it is one of the few sports that allow it.

    I don`t watch hockey, but I can tell you that fighting isn`t "condoned." It is commonplace in a sport as frustrating as hockey, but that doesn`t mean that the players aren`t penalized and sometimes suspended for fighting.

    I can`t believe someone would make a comment as stupid and ignorant as "If there were more of these, hockey might be worth watching". Hockey is already the funnest and fastest sport to watch and this kind of hit is cheap so I don`t know why that would make it worth watching.

    The hit was illegal and there was definitely an intent to injure and poo like that should not be allowed. We all want and love a physical game but this crosses the line.

    Little retarded Stevey was just pissed because he received a legal check a few seconds earlier from an Ottawa player so then he decided he was gonna go head hunting.

    A 20 game suspension? Wow. That was a hell of an illegal hit, that`s for sure.

    Thanks for the info, Mr. Anonymous.

    This hit was extremely dirty, and was a stupid move by Downie. He definitely deserved the 20 game suspension.

    I assume you all saw that Downie just received a big suspension from the NHL for this hit. 20 games.

    yeah, i`m from the state of hockey... (minnesota)

    It`s good that he actualy got 20 games instead of the 5 games I was expecting the NHL to dish out. Maybe they`re finally gonna start letting stupid players like this know that there`s no place for this poo.

    The only problem is this guy doesn`t even play in the NHL, so he won`t serve his suspension until he actually gets in the NHL.
