It wouldn't just survive, it would be better.

What ference did to halpern was disgusting. To me, there is no other solution than demanding the firing of Campbell and Bettman. As simple as that.

Sadly, I don't think the NHL will ever get the message until someone literally drops dead.

The line always used to be "if that hit was on someone like Crosby things sure would change."

Then what happened happened and nothing really changed beyond some lip service.

take away equipment and concussions would be few and far between

the only necessities; garden gloves, jockstrap, mouth guard, and swimming goggles
