It's a double-standard. I'll give you that. More importantly though Kariya and Timonen (even Sullivan) are looked upon as leaders on this club and yet they continue to reach with the stick and pickup penalties.

I don't know what the answer is, but it's gotta come from within the locker room...whether that means that Trotz, Peterson, and Horacek lose it and set a "zero-tolerance" policy on lazy penalties or whether the leaders in the dressing room (Vokoun, Johnson, Walker, Timonen, Sullivan, Kariya) step up and tell the guys to stop taking the lazy penalties AND then go out and set the example.

Whatever it is, it's gotta happen soon because we cannot be allowing 40+ shots a night come playoff time and expect Vokoun to not get worn down very quickly.
