1955 The Maurice Richard Incident and Suspension

Will not look at previous incidents but will start with the March 13,1955 game in Boston when Maurice Richard became involved with Hal Laycoe of the Bruins and Linesman Cliff Thompson.

Game story:

Ya, see, this is very interesting here as Dink himself points out; "We have been watching Maurice since he entered the league and there are 2 types of play played in the NHL; one kind played against Richard, another kind played against everyone else". Now, I dont think Carroll was a complete & total "Homer", as nothing he written that Ive read is terribly pro-Habitant, pretty objective, and combined with other contemporaneous reports & sources, seems there was indeed a double standard going on during #9's reign as the pre-eminent player in the league along with Howe. That window between about 47 & 57. Not sure what to make of it, as its a subject that actually transcends just hockey, touching on socio-economic & political issues, the business side of the NHL, quite a range of subjects really in order to address it properly.

Proper Hearing

^^^ One of the problems with NHL hearings, then and now, is that they tend to be very rushed and void of proper procedures.

Example - the Geoffrion / Murphy stick swinging incident took longer to investigate than the Maurice Richard situation being discussed.

This season the Karlsson / Cooke incident investigation was rushed.

Ya, very much so. Quasi judicial, decidedly Kangaroo, determinations, punishments decided in advance. Sort of a "we must be seen to be doing the right thing" as opposed to actually doing the right thing.
