Broken nose, broken cheekbone and a concussion.

I have to agree with Samsonov. I've seen the replay again and again, and I can't compare it to the Domi hit. The game was already chippy (see verfatma's point about the Odjick fight) and it was getting worse. The amount of damage caused by the hit was certainly a mistake, the hit itself was intentional. I'd say 8 games, tops, and start calling the series way closer than it has up til now.

Look Out For Uconn.

gyc, tieguy, et. al. Yeah, I woke up this morning thinking, "Wait a sec. I think I made a big mistake about that Big 10 thing." It's a fair cop. At least I said that I was mouthing off... Looking forward to the point by point refutation.

Look Out For Uconn.

jbou: Whoa, nelly! Getting a little ahead of the game. I agree, UConn was way under rated for most of the season, but they're getting plenty of press, now (how many times is SC going to show the "How to be a great shot blocker" segment?). Not to mention the fact that they have yet to win the Big East tourney. Any of the top 7 teams can win the tournament if they get hot - even Syracuse, though they've been pretty woeful in the last few weeks. tieguy: unimpressive conference. Well, let me mouth off for a second. ACC: Duke and Maryland can beat up on everyone in the Big East - but then they're beating on everyone. Wake? N.C. State? C'mon. They're no better than the best of the Big East right now. Big 12: Kansas, Oklahoma - good teams, but the jury's out on their performance in the big dance, and the rest of the teams are again, above average, but nothing special yet. Big Ten: Pretty much like the Big East - a bunch of good teams. Except this year, they're probably a little better than the East. But not by much, and that's this year - last year, the East trounced them (as far as results in the tourney). Pac-10: Sure. Great year. Alot like the Big Ten - a bunch of overachievers that look legit. I'm still waiting to see if it's a fluke - can they perform in 2 weeks? Can they do it again next year? *cough*Oregon*cough* SEC: Florida and Kentucky would beat up on the East, but then again, Pitt and UConn both look like they match up well. And the rest? Not so sure of Bama just yet... The way I look at it, the East is had a down turn the last five years, but they're certainly not the weakest year to year. They simply don't have a dominant program (or 2, like the ACC) to point to to legitimize tough schedules. I'd much rather watch the East, the Pac-10, and the Big 10 all year than the other conferences because of their high level parity. If you mean this year, yes, it looks (on paper) like the East is the weakest - but that's just this year, and that's just on paper. I guess we'll see soon enough.
