I'm not defending Carcillo in the least, but I think it's two EXTREMELY similar incidents, yet there's not even a discussion about what Avery did at the NHL level (at least from what I can gather with the lack of info ANYWHERE regarding it).
Yeah, i think thats what makes the job even tougher. Different people see things different ways and we expect the GODS (NHL Officials) to hand out punishment in a way that we all feel is fair. It is probably asking for the impossible but i do think we all agree some improvments to the system needs made.
