Afternoon Line

“I just think you watch a game and is it really better than it was a year or two years ago? Is there less head shots? Certainly the playoffs this year has been a revelation that not much has changed. Guys are still targeting the head and really putting other players in danger and at risk for serious injury. And that’s frustrating for a player that’s gone through a significant amount of time with that type of injury.”

-Andy McDonald of the St. Louis Blues via Pierre LeBrun of ESPN where you can read more on this topic.

The NHLPA has to share responsibility for the violence in the game.  Membership participates in illegal acts on ice and overwhelmingly support fighting in numerous polls.  I suspect we won’t see reall improvement until they come together and decide to respect each other, and then work with the league on solutions.  In the meantime the NHL will lurch from situation to situation with no real plan.

If the players themselves don’t care, why should I?
