'The hit that caused the position shifting – Kasparaitis' low check on Connolly along the boards Tuesday in a 2-1 Sabres victory – was deemed legal by Regier. But he, like his team, didn't like it. "I would be supportive of taking those hits out of the game," said Regier, who added discussions about the legality of hip checks have been held at GM meetings. "That isn't even a hip check. You're catching him with your rear end, and it's low enough, especially with someone like Kasparaitis, it's low enough to be in the knee area."'
