Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
By allowing Letang to return for the overtime, what the Penguins were telling us was that the miniscule minutes an intermission lasts were enough to probe into a player’s brain and determine beyond question that no damage had been done.
Are you kidding me?
Why, after their experience with Crosby would they even think of allowing Letang to return to the ice? What was the upside to it? Did they feel they truly needed him on the ice in the overtime, or that without him they ran the risk of losing the game either in overtime or during The Gimmick?
Did they think the extra point was so important to a team which had been winning consistently without Crosby would be unable to do the same without Letang?
What I’m really saying is that the organization’s decision was even more reckless than the Pacioretty hit … that somebody up there has a thought process badly twisted out of shape.
