Must have been easy tossing Torres for 25 since he's a third tier player, but at least something was done on this check. I have one beef with the NHL's explanation of feet leaving the ice on hits. They like to point out that some players leap first and others (they claim) leave their feet due to contact with the other player. I call bullshit. Anytime a player leaves his feet (both feet) it is because he has launched himself. Sometimes a player launches from farther so it appears like he leaps. Players don't make contact and magic makes them climb up each other. I acknowledge that a hit might put a player on one foot to balance after smashing into someone else. I also acknowledge that a player might hit so hard that both leave their feet to fall.
