Where does McGuire advocate going in skate first on Malkin? It was a scary incident and I understand the concern, guys, but let's not get carried away. He said you gotta play Malkin hard. Who would disagree with that?
It was a reckless play by Richards for sure. I'm sure there was no intent to injure but he was trying to get a piece of a guy with a part of the body that has to remain on the ice. It's too dangerous.
For the life of me, I don't understand why these guys don't wear neck guards. A two- ounce strip of reinforced cloth is going to turn Malkin or anyone else into a terrible player? I think not.
