The NHL, more than ever with its new rule restrictions, is full of dirty plays.
Brendan Shanahan has done his job in really enforcing these rules and handing down steep but acceptable punishments.
Here is a list of the five dirtiest players in today's NHL, and in turn, the players that can expect a call from Shanahan the most often.
As always, feel free to comment about what players you think should be included on this list. I am always interested in hearing other people's opinions.
Please refrain from comments asking why Sean Avery is not on the list. This is a list of the dirtiest players in the NHL, Avery is not currently playing in the NHL; the New York Rangers sent him to the minors after a disappointing training camp.
Also, please follow me on twitter (@cousins_ben), I will try to entertain you.
