I do believe Shanahan has good intentions but the league is still run by someone who was 'extremely comfortable' to do nothing at all about the Chara hit.

I believe the only reason they have moved at all is for the fear of outside pressure (i.e. governments, lawsuits).

The NHL sets a standard for all of hockey, I'd like to see it place a higher priority on safety for the good of all playing the game.

Bettman needs to be called out on safety, I'm glad someone like Ken Dryden is doing it.
