I like your answer. Still not sure about what the obvious is.. I guess I wasn't the only one noticing about Leipsic. With some of his diving I wonder if he played the victom one too many times and ended up hurting his team. The victom thing seems to be a real reflection of society these days.
The obvious comment was about the sanctions against the Winterhawks for illegal recruiting. Which is the main reason most of the league hates them. Honestly that doesn't bother me that much as I know for a fact they are not the only team guilty of doing that. They were just caught that is the main difference.
In the past I always liked Portland I think it's just this core of players the past 3 or 4 years I can't stand.
As for Leipsic you hit the nail on the head. He isn't going to get the benefit of the doubt because he's cried wolf one too many times. The officials know his game and sometimes they ignore a few things if you catch my drift. And understandably so. It's too bad because he is a talented player and if he just focused on playing rather than all the other B.S. he'd be a lot better off, IMO.
