The answer to those questions are no, and that's because Murray has different rules for different players. The only players that see repercussions for their actions on the ice are the Lewises, Richardsons, Hunters, etc. They make a soft turnover at the blue line and they're in the press box next game. Brown does that and you don't hear a single word and he doesn't miss a single shift. It sends mixed messages. Only certain players are susceptible to consequences for their actions on the ice. You're blind if you don't see it or choose to ignore it.
To be fair, the players you're talking about were appraised as a response to questions that Hammond asked. He didn't go out of his way today to rag on Loktionov, he was just giving an answer.
