More astute comments from players abroad. From Matt Duchene, who already criticized the level of referring in the SEL saying “It is sad that the (referees) did not call hooking, slashing and so on," now is criticizing his teammates. Following a recent 2-0 loss:
“If this was in the NHL, five players would be sent down to the minors after a game like this. But here, players are too comfortable,” Duchene said. “There are 33 million Canadians that would sacrifice an arm to play hockey at this level.”
Seems like the NHLPA is just collectively losing their mind at this point. So player goes abroad, takes a job in a foreign country no doubt as an act of solidarity for the union, complains about the officiating publicly, complains about his teammates publicly, etc.
I can only imagine how things turn out if the season is cancelled soon. Expecting a Lord of the Flies moment where Hamrlik's head is impaled on a hockey stick and becomes a mystical item of worship.
