The game has evolved. I wish the fans would as well.
Yup,

My favorite is how people bring up the Drury hit in Calgary, or the Carcillo assault on Gaborik as examples - things that happened 3-4 years ago.

These people need to watch more hockey. Every team in the league has 1 or 2 examples per season where there is an incident perpetrated against their players. Its not just confined to the Rangers. Putting a goon out there that cant skate and cant play the game not only hurts the team, but it isnt a deterrent.
