True / False: Dirty Hit?

Drew Stafford's hit on Duncan Keith...was it dirty?

Well, was it dirty?

Part of me says yes, that's a dangerous hit, blindsided at that angle. But, Keith was also admiring his shot with his head down. Could it have been an elbowing penalty? Yeah, probably. But not a suspendable offense.
Fact: BanginPanger is not meant as an insult to the one and only Darren Pang, nor do I claim to be him. The views and opinions presented on BanginPanger are of my own, and no other namesake of the site, the NHL, Buffalo Sabres, Washington Capitals, or anyone else.
