I do strongly believe too that any player that intentionally interferes with a player heading back at full speed for the puck should be strongly penalized and in the result of an injury, should be severely suspended.

Bottom line is that players must respect each other and unfortunately that isn't always the case.

FYI, I have not seen the video of the Foster incident and am making no statement on that or any other specific incident.
click that video that I attached ... its in there
