Malkin escapes with a near miss, NHL's eyes are closed

I posted a similar thread on the main board, but the thread was closed, unfortunately in the current NHL they need someone to be seriously hurt or pressure from the media - only then the NHL will notice.

Anyways, what happened in Philadelphia-Pittsburgh game could have been real tragic, but I guess us Russian fans were a little bit lucky that day.

Here is a video of what happened. Malkin decked Mike Richards and while Malkin was going to leave falling Richards behind Richards threw his right left up and at Malkin.

This could have been an injury that might have changed the whole Malkin's career. The way Richards threw his leg up looked very unnatural, there was no doubt that it was simply a reckless play, he simply doesn't have any respect for Malkin as a person and a hockey player. There is no way things like that should exist in hockey. Unfortunately NHL will not even look at this incindent because nobody got hurt.

Surfing the youtube I found this was not the first time Richards has done similar, he throws his legs up with a good consistency. Here is the video
In the second episode he did somewhat similar. This guy needs to be stopped before he seriously hurts someone.
