Down, set, HUT!!

If he doesn’t get suspended for that, the NHL deserves to lose every lawsuit that comes its way.

I like the suggestion that the players guilty of hits such as this must be thrown out of the game in progress and then suspended additional games beyond that.  It would only require the review people to message the referee to accomplish this with some consistency.  It will never happen as the Evil Garden Gnome does not give a tinker’s dam about consistent or logical officiating.

Agreed with Doc, how these flagrant head shots aren’t an automatic ejection is beyond me.

Exactly.
Nobody can say the technology isn’t there for Big Brother to watch the game and assess what happened on the fly. Or to have a team rep to contact Toronto HQ to review a dirty play.

If the officials only gave a 2-min minor or missed it entirely, they can still be contacted during the game to let them know that Player A is to be ejected for their transgressions.

But this is the NHL we’re talking about.
The league is run by 1940’s cavemen who can barely drag their knuckles out of their caves in order to oversea the game in any sort of intelligent light.
It also doesn’t help that most of them are still living and embracing an era where slapping the wife for screwing up supper is acceptable.
“Back in my day you were encouraged to take a two-hander to someone’s head. And we liked it!
Now pass the asbestos! MmmmMmmm good!”
