NHLers Speaking Up About Headshots

From Bill Beacon of the CP via the Globe & Mail:

Montreal Canadiens sniper Michael Cammalleri says having superstar Sidney Crosby speak out about headshots will help other NHL players voice opinions on what used to be a taboo subject.

“What the immediate effect is for me is that it allows other players now to come out and say ‘OK, it’s not uncool to say what I really believe, and that I’m not a soft player because I don’t think we should have headshots. I’m not a player a general manager won’t want on his team. I’m now going to voice that opinion,“’ Cammalleri said Wednesday as the Canadiens gathered for their annual charity golf tournament.

“I think it’s very good of Sid to be able to do that. He’s under a big microscope, the biggest in our game, and I commend him for doing that. I think that it’s important that we don’t be ignorant to what’s going on in our game.”

“I have no problem with taking a good slash or chop and you end up with a bruise or even a broken bone. Hey, we play a tough sport. But when it comes to the brain, let’s not be ignorant.”

Well said.
