The NHL has been making an effort to reduce head injuries in the game, as it should. Ending Marc Savard's career prematurely with a cheap blow to the head tells you all you need to know.

Penalties and suspensions are now handed out at an unprecedented rate for blows to the head.

But the NHL still looks the other way when it comes to fighting. A hockey fight is a series of intentional blows to the head with intent to injure. There is no other way to interpret it.

This is the height of hypocrisy and the biggest stain on a great game.
