Kukla's Korner Hockey

I hate that every night during the regular season and playoffs, injuries are so regularly hockey's biggest stories.
During the Chicago Blackhawks' 2-0 win over St. Louis on Monday, Steve Ott took some revenge on Duncan Keith (he of the, "I cannot recall chirping David Backes after Brent Seabrook concussed him" vein) in relatively clean form...
But Matt Cooke took out Tyson Barrie's knee earlier this evening....
And I'm currently watching things get out of hand in a big way as the Anaheim Ducks trail the Dallas Stars 2-0. As Pro Hockey Talk's Cam Tucker notes, former Star Stephane Robidas
got kneed by collided with Dallas's Ryan Garbutt, and had to leave the game...
And the Ducks slowly but surely responded as they tend to respond:
As Mickey Redmond stated on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM, one could easily suggest that the game is becoming "too dangerous" due to a lack of player respect.
Some of this is playoff hockey hate, but injuries become "the story" more often than not, and that's screwy.
