Your line of thinking seems to say that since morally worse things occur, this incident should be a non-issue by virtue of it not being physically dangerous.
No, I just don't take it as serious as you do. It's just a ****-ing game. In the whole scheme of things, it is nothing.
As far as "integrity of the on-ice product goes," that is a joke. As I pointed out in another thread, there was a time in this league that the refs treated the third period of a game as something wholly different than the first two periods...never calling a penalty. Now that was really an "integrity" problem. Something real and tangible.
This is nothing. Get over it. Clown will get fined tomorrow and that will be that. And your moral integrity dilemma will be resolved, hopefully satisfactorily.
