No doubt he and his plush penguin Mr. Penguikins will be having a long sleepless night wondering whatever to do.

the rules are. What's a fine bearing offense? What's a suspendable offense?

Like the refs in game three of the Pens Flyers series, inaction is leading to a rash of the kinds of hits that the NHL should be trying to outlaw.

A clear message should have been sent in the Weber instance and he should have gotten at least a one game suspension and the league should have issued a statement right then and there.

Instead, the head shots keep coming.

Bettman nursed at the teat of NBA commissioner Stern, and the league did everything it could to make the game easier for their superstars. Jordan benefitted greatly from the way stars were treated. BIG difference, though, in not calling a travelling violation or that extra hop step versus letting stars get away with vicious hits that would cull a suspension for any other player.

Leave the ice to make a hit and you contact the head and you get auto 10 game suspension. Further offenses can lead to longer punishment up to and including lifetime ban. GMs need to consider full cage helmets along with NHLPA. It's been comin and now it's just being cemented. The open ice speed is just too great and the players can no longer be trusted to protect each other.

in so many ways. So much of what he's done with the NHL has ties to what the NBA did under Stern. I will give them this, though: the NHL did a much better job with the cap structure than the NBA did.

And Jordan was just one example, Dominique Wilkins did the same things. And Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were able to get away with things other NBA players couldn't get away with.

The point was that the liberties NBA stars could get away with are much, much different than what the NHL is allowing. Michael Jordan and Dominique "The Human Highlight Film" Wilkins didn't end careers by taking an extra step to the basket and having the refs not blow the whistle. What the NHL is allowing their stars to get away with can not only end a player's career, but severely affect their lives post professional sporting career.

Shanny needs to tell the GMs and Owners to STFU and take your medicine if one of the stars steps over the line.
