NHL Not Serious About Cheap Shots

When a player goes down, it ain't pretty. You don't need to be a hardcore hockey fan to feel the pain of certain injuries. The thought of standing in front of a Chara or Pronger blue line shot is unbearable.

But when your player falls hard from a cheap shot, words cannot describe the anger that arises from within you.

So we ask ourselves, "What are we going to do about this? Where is the NHL?" Perhaps Colin Campbell ( one of my favorite bloggers, Adam Gretz, refers to him as the Discipline Czar) is too busy addressing suspensions to previous offenders rather than looking into those who are committing the crimes but constantly getting away with it (perhaps a Kostitsyn?).

Perhaps Gary "Butt"man is too busy reassuring the media that Sean Avery's "Anger Management" classes are going extremely well for him. We don't really know. What we do know is that they certainly aren't addressing it properly.

This recap of some of the more recent hits and the suspensions (or lack thereof) will hopefully shed some light on the situation.
