That Was Literally the Worst Call I Have Ever Seen in My Life

New, comments

Martin Hanzal is 6'4", in his bare feet. He's 6'6" in skates. The crossbar is 4' high. Let's forget for the moment that everyone in the free world, including Hanzal, could see that was a high stick. Hanzal's stick is above his shoulders when he bats the puck in. The only way his shoulders are 4' off the ice (or less) in that situation is if he's bent over (he isn't; he's upright) or his head and neck are substantially more than two feet long.

Unless Hanzal is an Easter Island statue, that's a high stick.

UPDATE: no f***ing kidding.
