Roman Polak leans on European skater, crushes him like bug

New, comments

The hulking Blues defender is finding the physicality in Europe to be a little less intense than he remembered it to be....

No, this guy did not open the Roman Polak Door (TM). Instead, he simply had the audacity to try to beat the non-Roman, non-Polish defender wide to the outside. Check out the video as Polak executes a move that he uses literally handfuls of times per game in the NHL and proceeds to fold up the opposing team's forward like a broken lawnchair.

I like the imploring look he gives the ref afterwards.

"What? I barely touched him!"

And yes, it's sad that this has to pass for "Blues news" these days. Thanks to @LochNezzMonstaa for the video link.
