Some day you're going to see Sean Avery type players bouncing their heads off other players gear and jumping to the ice to draw a penalty,
just like players are grabbing their faces when sticks are near (Boyle) or jumping to the ice as soon as a stick touches their skates (Semin).
This annoys me to no end.
If you look at some of the players in the NHL, they never complain or purposefully attempt to draw a penalty (Jagr never complained).
Now, it seems like anyone is trying to get the 2 minutes. When I played hockey, I never liked to embellish a play: I had too much pride/honor (sounds corny, but I thin that's what it boils down to).
The player needs to have more honor. It's been said by Tortorella about the hits to the head too.
