Maybe even do some activites that are related to this or something like that.. like a fieldtrip
Maybe that can change the perspective of some players.
And offcourse, diciplinnämnden has to go and the punishments need to be more fearfull. Longer and more expensive.
... at least they need to do away with the comittee, handing out sanctions based on "feel" and "grey zone."
In their defense though, I think they get too much **** from everybody. If the leagues' management took their responsibility and put together clear documents outlining what infraction yield what sanction, decisions could be made much faster and with more consistency. Without such documents or with limited guidelines in such documents, the results will be thereafter. Nine times out of ten, it seems as if the Swedes see the NHL do something, and immediately they try to mimick it without having the necessary foundation in place, or even the understanding of how to execute the concept of what they're looking at overseas.
Failure to plan is a plan to fail.
