I saw the hit, and IMO it was a case of Kassian making up his mind he was going to lay a hit and a hurting on the guy regardless. Dillon turned his back to Kassian, but Kassian was fully committed and was not going to back off. Kassian hit him in the numbers and crunched him good.
IMO Kassian wanted to make a difference in a losing cause, saw what he thought was his opportunity - by making a big hit - and didn't ease up when it turned out to be a hit from behind. He should know better, and will rightly hear about it from a lot of folks between management and the league. In a way, I feel for him because IMO that's a hit borne out of a desire to try and make a difference and he screws it up and injures Dillon, puts the team down a man for 5 and gets suspended.
Hopefully they take him off the cross before too long. I'd rather a guy make mistakes for being too zealous than too timid.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League.
