Third. Carcillo is a repeat offender, and the NHL (usually) takes that into account when reviewing these plays.
By not suspending Carcillo, the NHL is setting a precedent of allowing borderline hits to the head and by doing so are failing to adhere to the rules they put in place to protect players.
I'm new here, go easy on me lol
Screw off noob
You made a very good point and are totally correct but we all know the NHL is spotty with their suspensions... Welcome to the Boards just know that we are all mentally insecure
