Johan Franzen and Brooks Orpik not BFFs

According to Seth over at Empty Netters, Johan Franzen believes Brooks Orpik deserves a suspension for his hit in yesterday's preseason game.  He told the Detroit Free Press:

"It's terrible. Stupidest play I ever seen. He lifted his foot up and put his knee inside of my leg... I just put the puck back down deep and was trying to go get it, and he threw his knee out."

I didn't see it, so I can't attest to the intention of Orpik or the actual incident itself.  However, I do know that if Franzen wanted to picket outside the NHL offices Erik Cole would be more than happy to join him.

Did you see the hit and/or have video for it?  If so, what's your take on it?

If anyone can provide video I'll toss it up asap and we can all be the judge on this one.
