If the guy is #3 on the dirty players list voted by the NHL players it says something about the type of respect that player has for others but also the kind of respect players in the league have for them.
Then again though I think we all know who they are.
Either way I do think stiffer suspensions can be part of the solution it just can't be the only solution or it will fail.
One big problem with your post. The NHLPA has a long history of caring about money more than health. They would never do this because of the lost salary implications. It would never fly either for discrimination reasons.
The NHLPA isn't the solution.
