Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Scott Burnside at ESPN,
If the NHL responds as if this were just another hockey hit and penalizes Jones lightly or lets him off altogether, all the league’s statements that it is serious about eliminating dangerous play would be rendered moot.
For all the praise being heaped on Flyers GM Paul Holmgren and coach John Stevens for turning around a Philadelphia franchise that finished dead last in 2006-07, these incidents suggest this franchise has no real control over its players.
What else are we to conclude from the fact that three players scouted and signed by the Flyers have engaged in behavior that could have ended players’ careers?
*Also in the Philadelphia Inquirer today, Joe Logan asks “Are the Bullies Back?”
Update 3:03pm ET: CBC’s Jeff Marek says Bergeron “a victim of coaching tactics.”
