I looked around, didn't see anything.

people try to argue, "well, he missed him." the intent was clearly there. so are they going to wait until players start getting hurt before they punish these kinds of plays. i want bernier to lay bergenhiem out tomorrow.

It is not a one-man job.


Sigh...

I mean it shouldn't be just the NHL making the decision. The NHLPA should probably be involved if they are in fact interested in 'player safety', as Bettman claims again and again.

I mean, they won't make the players take off the plastic armor, but still. Safety is very important when players who aren't stars do something wrong, and it should be just as important when players who ARE stars do something wrong.

It's happening league wide.

And last night the two dirtiest players in the league were at it again, but because they're the "face" of the NHL nothing gets called.

Watch this video as Malkin skates by Nick Grossmann and delivers a flying elbow. The ref is right there looking at it but Chris Lee was more interested in ruining last night's game by making it the "CHRIS LEE SHOW" than calling legit penalties on "stars".

Here's the video. Now if the NHL wants to send a message that ALL the pundits calling out the Penguins for special treatment were wrong they suspend Malkin for the next game. But the NHL will NEVER do this because he is a "star". If a lesser player does this crap he gets 3 games.



Malkin clearly puts his elbow out jumps up a little and targets Grossmann's head. Then Malkin is smart enough to tuck and fall like it was accidental. The guy is the dirtiest cheapest A HOLE in all of the NHL.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."
