Which of these two hits has the higher potential for a bad result?
Which of these two players had a suspension history?
Which of these two players got a suspension for these hits?
Blake Comeau is one lucky hockey player, having been suspended as a Blue Jacket for boarding, to come away without even a suspension, well Penguins conspiracy?
As for Kane, it had all the checkpoints for a suspension, you will not hear me complain about the suspension, however you compare Kane's hit to Comeau's of the two of them, Comeau's is the one that puts the safety of Tanev at greater risk, not Kane's.
Kane under our system
Once again it comes down to consistency, these two boarding hits are a great example of similar hits getting two very different results, Jets fans have a good reason to question what the hell is going on. Honestly I think what saves Comeau is his immediate reaction to the hit on Tanev, that should not come into consideration however.
