NHL Ending Dry Scraping of Ice Before Overtime

18 November 2014 - 05:39 PM

The NHL will no longer dry scrape the ice before overtime.

 

Instituted this season in an effort to reduce the number of shootouts, the dry scraping will stop after Friday's games.

It there any logic to determining suspensions???

08 November 2014 - 10:19 PM

The suspension logic boggles my mind.  Hits to the head get different amount of games or none like Ovechkin's hit on Hjalmarsson while Ashton gets 20 games for using a training partner's inhaler for an asthma attack. Yes it may be a PED violation but it doesn't seem fair.  The disciplinary action seems so arbitrary.
 
This link  LINK shows a chart of the suspensions for the 2014-2015 season, so far.. All the hits to the head vary. Konopka's PED violation will be effective with new contract. SInce he is not signed for this season there is no suspension however he didn't have a fine either. He gets away with no disciplinary action albeit suspension or fine. The kid who couldn't breathe loses $169,185.

This inequality or one size fits all i.e. PED is ridiculous imo. I know it is what it is however do you feel about this subject?

Will Scott Stevens become part of the NHL’s player safety department?
