The enforcers will make sure guys like Gallagher keep playing their game and don't take abuses for going to the front of the net, and that guys like Kostka don't pick an easy one by dropping the gloves with him. Getting cross-checked in the back might not end your season, but as you get hit repeatedly with a stick, you sure are less likely to go back to the net afterwards.
These arguments show a complete lack of understanding for the game tbh. How the hell could anything stop that play tonight, it was a freak accident, like almost all the other plays cited here.
Anyone bringing up the karlsson injury as something meaningful in this discussion is lost. They don't even deserve a reply, aside from full body armour nothing could prevent that sort of play. Happens a 100 times a week, sometimes it results in an injury sometimes it doesn't. Our players getting beat down is not an accident, it's done by design and with no fear of retribution.
