Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
So while the Isles were going out of their way to criticize the league for a few controversial calls this week, the team’s management all the while knew they were in effect playing with a player soon to be deemed ineligible.
So while the league can puff out its chest today and cite Hill’s 20-game suspension announced late yesterday afternoon as evidence of a league drug policy that works, the incident may have actually opened up a bunch of new questions.
When was Hill caught?
Should he have been suspended pending his appeal?
How long did the appeal take?
Should that appeal have been heard before the playoffs began?
