Why?..the equipments are better, but more dangerous.
It's called evolution, the equipment got better, now it's time to adapt to it and new rules.

I'll give you 1 000 000 000 000 000$ if you can play hockey without looking down once.
The ''keep your head up'' argument is the dumbest one anybody can use.

Yes, that's exactly what it should mean. Why in God's name should head shot be permitted??..What is the point of hitting the head other than Knocking someone out?? Legal or not, it's dumb and cheap.

There's a reason why Stevens was renowned to be a beast. He loved open ice hit and always made sure the head was the Bull's eye, that's why he injured so many people.
It doesn't matter whether he used his shoulders, elbows, or wtv. Point is, he always for some reason went for the head.



To me, there's nothing better than a clean open ice hit and see the guy get back up to finish his shift. That's truly great.
But how can anybody be for seeing a player lay motionless on the ice with some blood dripping every now and then?..Whether it's a ''clean'' hit or not is completely irrelevant. It should be penalized so that the players become more sensitive to this issue.
