Really? What happened to that 10 minutes in the dark room protocol?
Out the window in new CBA? Or just because its NY?
He's a $60 Million man. Might want to make sure he's okay before putting him back on the ice 50 seconds later.
I seem to recall Lindy Ruff being asked about this not too long ago during a GR-55 phone interview. Ruff's answer was vague and sort of like "I'm not really sure if they still follow through with that" like the whole "dark room protocol" has kind of been forgotten about, or is at least only sporadically followed.
The NHL is good like that. The rule today is quietly forgotten about tomorrow.
