Things can't remain the same. You either let the guys slow each other down, or you change the rules. I know this probably won't be a popular opinion but the thing is, the NHL will end up with massive legal trouble soon if more players end up with the same fate as Geoffrion.

With that said, I feel sorry for Geoffrion who spent his whole life trying to make it to the NHL only to get his dreams crushed this way. I hope he finds something(s) else to make him happy. Good luck to him!
This post makes no sense, it was an extremely unfortunate play but it is a risk that comes on the ice. Wasn't even a concussion.

Anywho, sad to hear but very smart move by Blake, I knew this was coming when I heard the extent of the injury. Very sad, but he's lucky to be as well as he is now.
