Ironically, I am sure that Carcillo (and hundreds of other players) have said far, far worse things but verbal threats don't matter much unless you push the wrong Referee's buttons.
Yep. The last thing the league needs is a visual image of someone using a gesture that quite literally is meant as a threat to kill (that's where it comes from folks, even if you don't think he literally means it). You can say whatever you want as long as it isn't on tape (outside of the very few things that cross the line -- racial slurs).
