    NHL should get serious.
    If you are implying that this was a deliberate cheap shot, then I disagree. As a forechecker, you are looking to get a piece of your opponent. When two players are moving towards each other, there is scant time for the forechecker to respond to a sudden move. What Brown thought was the correct angle got changed faster than he could adequately and legally respond.

    Should Brown have peeled off to his right to evade contact? Of course, but decisions within that split second are a challenge. IMO, this was an unfortunate contact; certainly not a deliberately "cheap" hit.

    Now having said that, I will agree that despite never having been suspended for it, Brown seems to have been prone throughout his career to this "mistake". Rather than being malicious however, I see it as a combination of his mindset for a hit combined with less than top-notch agility.

    It's cheap. No doubt. Even the video says that Brown's hit was being evaded....Brown knowing this extends his elbow AND knee. BOTH of those are illegal. Brown has done this before.
    The NHL vid goes on to say "All contact is avoidable. Brown has time for a full body check or avoid all contact." Brown chose the cheap shot elbow and knee. Brown chose to extend his elbow and knee. Both of which are illegal.

    How is extending your elbow and knee not deliberate?!?!?!
    I don't apologize for cheap shots. Neither should any fan.

    It was just dumb. He has limited hockey sense and is prone to making stupid plays.

    Trying to hit somebody in the middle of the ice without making any play on the puck is the kind of dumb decision that leads to these kinds of penalties. It's not malicious, just stupid.

    I've tried to explain that to a number of people. Brown isn't Darcy Tucker or Brian Marchment, he's not trying to take someone's knee out but his horrible decision making ends up doing it anyway.

    Here is the thing about "enforcers". Now a days, they (the remaining few) only fight each other, so who/what are they enforcing?

    Then what exactly then is Brown thinking in his "stupid" or "horrible" mental state when he throws out an elbow AND a knee?
    Both elbowing and kneeing are illegal. Kneeing and elbowing (especially kneeing) lead to injuries, hence why they are illegal.

    I've never thought of Brown as not having the mental capacity to not understand this.

    His horrible decision was to try to make that dumb open ice hit. When the hit was avoided, Brown wanted to make contact anyway he could, so he stuck out his elbow and his knee knowing full well that two players coming right at each other at a high rate of speed will result in a significant collision.
    Throwing an elbow or a knee at that rate will result in a very high probability of injury.

    Brown may not be the smartest guy in terms of hockey sense, but don't try to sell him as being flat out stupid, as if he does not know throwing an elbow and knee is going to have dire consequences.

    Kneeing:
    Roszival, Hertl, Tarasenko (olympics), Sergachev

    I'm sure I've missed a few

    He does dumb stuff practically on a shift by shift basis. This just caused an injury.

    I don't see him trying to injure the opposition, I see him going for a big dumb hit, leaning in to make as much contact as he can, and a player who could lean to avoid the shoulder but not the knee.
