One thing I wonder is why so many players leave themselves so unprotected. Everyone does that now, with their back to the play. I don't know if it's European influence, a soccer thing, or what, but I remember when players would protect the puck but stay in more of a side posture. There are a lot of hits from behind where a player turns away late. Obviously you have to penalize, but players have to be aware of their position.

crabby, maybe, and with good reason, but i am far from the only one.

nor am i questioning anyones 'logic' or 'credibility, and i did think twice about my response.

It has nothing to do a previous injury. (and i would suggest a dirty martini, witch i am about to go make)
