If Nolan and Tucker played for a different team, I doubt "the whole league" would be talking about high sticks.

High sticks can cause injuries? Aw, come on, you're kidding me! Visors might prevent eye injuries? Whoa! Some players wear visors, others choose not to? Slow down, egg-head! Mandatory visors would have to be agreed to by the NHLPA? No way!!

Really, how does any of this qualify as news? Why is high sticking and visors suddenly getting so much ink? Because it happened to Maple-Leafs. It might be the hot topic in Toronto, but I think "the hockey media" has overestimated how much fans around the league care.
