But Briere, Hartnell, and Leino shouldn't be dealt with differently. If anything, because they're "veterans" they should be the ones who are dealt with more severely because they're supposed to be the examples that the younger players are to follow. Essentially what you're saying is that they deserve a free pass where a younger player should be held accountable. That's the problem with hockey - it's always easy to blame a younger player than it is a veteran, but it's the veteran who should know better.

Like I said, I still think Pronger singled out Giroux simply because he sees something special in him and that he wants to help Claude bring his game to the next level. Look at the influence Chris had on guys like Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. He called those guys out too and they brought their games to the next level as a result.
