Pronger/Kessler incident

Posted 8:51 AM ET | Comments 2
In light of the recent stomping incident involving Chris Pronger and Ryan Kessler, I thought I'd share the email I wrote to Gary Bettman (cc to Collin Campbell). I am simply disgusted with the direction this league is headed.

Dear Mr. Bettman,

If the current reports regarding the Chris Pronger/Ryan Kessler stomping incident are accurate, I feel compelled to voice my enormous disappointment in the lack of any disciplinary action taken against Mr. Pronger. You are allowing this league to become an absolute joke. I will fully expect to hear from you personally when a player ends up seriously injured or dead due to the lax policies the NHL has towards such actions. I'm curious what kind of suspension the league will hand out when a player's intentional action results in someone being paralyzed, or worse, killed. What's the penalty to match the injury there Mr. Bettman? It is a disgrace that you and the others in charge of this league have turned a blind eye, in most instances (slap on the wrist 3 games suspensions are token gestures) and play favorites. I anxiously await the day when a real commission has control of our game.

Sincerely,

Rocco Russo
