Get your headshots in while they are still legal.
You have got to be kidding.
Colin Campbell let Cooke, a repeat offender, off the hook?
And the Boston Bruins are left with its impact player recovering from a Grade Two concussion?
Following three days of general manager meetings, with the hot topic of illegal hits on everyone's minds, Campbell seemed to declare the NHL's intentions for the future.
"Oh, well we'll just start caring about our players next year."
Richards wasn't suspended, so Cooke won't be either?
Rumor and sources say Campbell's decision revolved around consistency.
Yes, Colin Campbell, you've been consistently dumb.
First of all, Cooke has been suspended twice since January of last year for similar incidents. So, all of a sudden, his blindside hits are deemed legal? Where is the consistency there?
Why didn't Campbell observe the suspensions levied to Cooke in the past? What does Richards have anything to do with Cooke? That decision was a joke in the first place.
Failing to suspend Richards was a big mistake. Trying to be consistent can't be achieved when Campbell made the wrong decision regarding Richards' hit.
Savard's injury will still be fresh in the minds of players and fans alike when the puck is dropped. Hockey is an emotional sport. Things can get out of control. On March 18, it just might.
Campbell's decision today effectively stamped a bulls-eye on the face of every NHL player for the rest of the season.
Be worried, NHL fans.
It's about to get ugly.
