Whatcha going to do? This is the NHL in 2010. A guy got injured on a hit that was ruled a penalty, and Upshall agreed it was late.

Seems to me that's an area of the ice where you have to expect to be hit. He was 12 feet from the boards, above the goal line extended, and he had his head up in a position where he was trying to score in a close game. It's a hockey play. But if Upshall admits it was late, there's no sense arguing.

Your guy got hurt, ours got suspended. It's a lose lose. We're all just going to have to get used to the fact that this is the way of things now in the NHL and over the course of the next few years it will all even out for every team. If it keeps players from missing games due to injury, great.

Edit: I guess I should have said this is the NHL in 2011. Jeez, time is going by quickly.
