Power Struggle

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It is obvious the NHL cannot be trusted to dispense equitable justice. It is now up to the NHLPA, through the vehicle of the standing competition committee, to flex its influence. When the competition committee meets this season, it should recommend mandatory minimum sentences for blows to the head and checks from behind, and any other applicable dangerous fouls.

It is clear the NHL has abandoned its responsibility. It would be a disaster if Burke and his ilk are allowed to assume power in this vacuum. This is a league of and by the players. It’s about time that discipline is enacted for the players.
