Kind of sad that the NHL claims to be interested in player safety yet, puts in the bare minimum effort to improve things until forced to do so. No touch icing should have been put in years ago, no reason there should ever be a risk of this type of injury off an utterly meaningless puck race after the original Foster injury.

But, much like taking 20 years to realize that maybe they should start actually meting out real NHL discipline in an insigator penalty based hockey league, and waiting until the league marketing star is badly concussed to do something about headshots, icing probably won't be changed until a star player gets his career wiped out or someone outright dies(as Foster almost did).
