Don't get me wrong, guys, I am VERY excited about kariya and the team as a whole, I am simply opening up the floor to this discussion.
I share your concerns, but having Poile on the Rules committee will at least be a VERY strong voice for continued enforcement of the crackdown if the refs start to waiver.
I also have some concerns about some heavyweight goons running Kariya or Sullivan.
Is Hordichuk and our other middleweight gritsters [Toots, Walker, Markov, Stevenson, Allision, Hartnell] enough?
