With GM meetings underway in Florida this week, the main concern around the league right now is headshots and the growing rate of concussions. My personal opinion on this hot topic is the league should have a no tolerance policy and the player should be handed a heavy fine plus a minimum of 7 game suspension. Along with the player being punishied I believe the team should also get fined. If the league takes this route I believe it will show teams that the league means business and are not playing around. Too many players are getting seriously injured or career ending concussions due to headshots and we need to put a stop to this. Like the Chara hit for example I believe it was a clean hit yes, but no matter how fast the game is I don't care who you are, you know exactly where you are at all on the ice. So I believe Chara should have got fined because that would of set a standard for the rest of the league that no matter if your a superstar or not we will still suspend a player. A headshot rule should have came in effect a long time ago and we would not be discussing this topic now, Gary Bettman needs to wakeup and smell the coffee and crack down on this growing problem.
Anyone agree with me?
