Teams took the position that it was a good idea to take out our top 3 centers (looking at you Lavvy). The Flyers were the worst offenders in this charge, but a few teams have done it. They intentionally attempted to HARM Bergeron (at least twice) and Krejci (every time they played him.) The Pens went after Savard for the same reason. It is now a STRATEGY to harm offensive players.
It is not even the karma, or the "Live by the Sword, Die by the Sword", aspects that are interesting.
It was the fact that nobody gave a flying f@#$ when it was other players, but now everyone thinks something needs to be done because it is Crosby.
To emphasize this point. The leagues leading scorer is out indefinitely with a concussion, but all the talk is about Sid and how it's bad for the league.
