The NHL along with "hanging-judge" Brendan Shanahan
CONTINUE to punish players UNJUSTLY in their shameless effort at "cleaning-up" the league.
WHY they think it's necessary to tack-on a fine and suspension for every freakin' penalty is a joke,...it's becoming outrageous! This is NOT hockey, anymore - they are changing the sport completely - and the fans are the ones being SCAMMED,........
Knee-on-knee (shin, thigh, w/e) hits can be career-enders, dude. Have you forgotten that David Booth
is out for 4-6 weeks because of a knee-on-knee hit? Players have been fined/suspended for these hits long before Shanaban took over, so I have no idea what you're talking about.
