I'm saying this as a Sharks fan. Ban Raffi Torres from the NHL.

Let that sink in for a moment.

You can clearly see that Raffi Torres targets Jarett Stoll while the puck is still tied up in the puck battle. As Stoll is reaching out for the puck, Torres hits him shoulder-to-jaw.

Jarret Stoll did not return to play after this hit.

This is just as bad as his previous hits against Hossa, Seabrook, Eberle, Hejda, Prosser, Michalek, and many more. This clown has no business playing in a league where he will continue to deliberately target and knock out the most talented hockey players in the world.

I don't own anything here.

EDIT: I'm going to throw in this link to a series of screen grabs:

You either agree with it or you don't. There's people with credentials that have weighed in on either side. Kerry Fraser and Justin Bourne think it's a dirty hit -- and Bourno shold know since he's been to a Phoenix game or two.

The fact is -- on either side of this debate -- that you're not making yourself look any better by claiming that everyone else is an idiot.

EDIT x2: Even Don Cherry -- the guy that originally complained that Shanahan was making the NHL into the "No Hitting League" -- thinks this hit was illegal, though he feels that the term would have been shorter for any other player. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LRTk6...
