from Mark Everson of the NY Post,
Devils goalie Martin Brodeur says the new NHL warden is giving hockey a black eye with his spate of head-shot suspensions.
“Not everybody is following preseason, and when it’s over, the only thing people are going to hear about is, ‘Twelve suspensions for 37 games or whatever it turns out,’ ” Brodeur told The Post yesterday. “That’s not good for the game. No other sport does anything like that to itself.”
New NHL punishment VP Brendan Shanahan is setting suspension records for head hits.
“It could be chaotic,” Brodeur said. “Hopefully this is just an issue because the guys are adjusting. He’s setting a precedent for future calls.”
Brodeur recalls other crackdowns that fizzled.
