Yep, that raised our consciousness on the issue, but it would have been the same if it had gone the other way...
I mean, a Canes fan agreed, and added that the same should apply to boarding, to avoid neck injuries (guess he was thinking about Cole...). And he's right.
The NHL should do whatever it takes to avoid freak injuries. An accident is an accident, but when the same player creates the same accident several times, that's not an accident anymore, and there's a problem to solve...
