Now, apparently, it's back to the whole "as long as the player isn't hurt, headshots aren't too bad and might earn you somewhere between a fine and a 2 to 3 game holiday".
Yeah. I don't even understand how one can really judge by the injury. We've seen many times from all sorts of hits that you don't always know the real story until the days after.
As for Boudreau, I have to admit the idea of him losing to the Penguins, if he's still there, did cross my mind as being a final straw as well. Of course, I also thought he'd be fired after the TB series too. They could have a very interesting summer if they don't make a big splash past April.
