I have no idea what the NHL is doing. Or not doing. It's basically a coin flip on and off the ice to determine penalties and suspensions. Stoll gets a game suspension for a hit from behind on White. Ok, I agree with that. Mike Richards buries Connolly and only gets a two minute boarding and no suspension. Lucic gets 5, 10, and a game for a stupid move by Spacek? He's dumping the puck in facing up ice. If he keeps his right shoulder on the glass and takes the hit he's fine. Instead, he peels off to the right at the last second and puts his face into the glass. Who knows if Lucic will get suspended.
Then there's Torres. What exactly was wrong with his hit on Seabrook? My understanding of Rule 48 is behind the net play is considered North-South, and not subject to the blind side situation. He threw a clean, hard check on a guy who needs to have his head a swivel. You never, ever, look behind you, especially behind your own net. You look where you're skating. Every defenceman knows that.
Then you have guys leaving their feet (thought that was charging, but apparently not), throwing flying elbows (not Richard's on Kaleta, that should have only been 2), and crosschecking guys in the throat.
So my message to the NHL: If you want the sports world to take the league seriously, get your act together and have some consistency with on-ice officiating and off-ice discipline.
