How is using your stick as a weapon cheap but acceptable while going to the ice easier than you should to draw a penalty is shameful and is a reason players don't play for teams?

Also, by the book what Perry did to Rinne wasn't a spear. It is, however, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, and it should have been treated as such. A spear has to be a stabbing motion using the tip of the stick blade. Using the shaft of your stick as a weapon falls under Unsportsmanlike Conduct if it isn't a crosscheck or a high stick.
Yes, that play was very unsportsmanlike. And was embarrassing. For the league MVP to do that, is shameful. I think embellishing bothers me a lot, is because it is easy to control. You chose to do, where as the other stuff is in the heat of the moment. But yes both are wrong but I just hate embellishing a lot more.
