The injury argument doesn't make sense to me, that can happen to every team especially the Devils, who have no forward depth
Never said that same concern doesn't apply to a lot of teams. But its definitely a real concern for them, especially given their tendency to dive in front of pucks in the defensive zone (forwards and defensemen alike). They play a very dangerous style for a team that needs to stay healthy to contend.
Dirty, no two ways about it. But I have no sympathy for Simmonds.
See, the "no sympathy" thing, I've always seen this as a horrible mindset. I hate a lot of Devils Rangers and Penguins players but would still feel bad and sympathetic if they got injured seriously, especially head injuries. I know a lot of people here play adult league hockey and I've had 3 mild concussions from it. I hate Crosby with a passion but honestly felt bad for him when he was out.
