Injuries are all that matters to the NHL, and you can be as vicious as you want, so long as you do not cause one. That is the standard the NHL has set this week. Go ahead, run around and try to kill someone. Take the chance. Try to take his head off. Maybe you’ll get lucky. Maybe your target will skate away without an injury, and if that is the case, so will you, without any disciplinary action. Take the Shea Weber incident, for example, one of the dirtiest, cheapest, most dangerous plays you could ever dream of seeing on a hockey rink. When up against the boards with Henrik Zetterberg, he grabbed him by the back of his helmet and slammed him face-first into the glass. The play, which should have been a minimum five-game suspension out of the sheer viciousness of the intent, ended up garnering Weber a $2,500 fine, which is mere pocket change. The reason? Well by golly, Zetterberg did not get injured on the play. A couple of nights later, Carl Hagelin of the Rangers gets his elbow up on Daniel Alfredsson of Ottawa (who was partly facing him when he threw the check), no doubt a penalty-worthy play, but nevertheless not with any malicious intent, and he receives a three-game suspension because Alfredsson did not return, and might not play tomorrow night in Game Three. Not that it matters to this miserable excuse of a Mickey Mouse league whose disciplinary decisions have been made by a delusional and controllable puppet, Brendan Shanahan, but Hagelin has a spotless track record. He only took 12 minor penalties in 64 games this season. He is a player who has never done anything dirty, but now he will have this on his rap sheet for eternity, won’t he?
