Aside from the content which as usual I think is great this article is very well written. Thanks for writing it as always they are appreciated.
As to the content its sad that this is what the NHL has become. I remember back in the day when Tiger butt ended someone (the old let your hand slip down your stick as you went into the corner with someone schtik) and I believe the commish was the Eagle said something to the effect of if you butt end someone your gonna sit your butt down for a week, maybe more. It seemed to have the desired result.
Now people can run around and deliberately throw an intentional elbow that takes a player out for weeks and end up with a one or two game suspension and then DB gets two games for an errant elbow.
Its just such a sham and happens on such a random bullcrap basis. Shany and co spin the wheel and whatever it lands on is what they do. So sadly inconsistent.
