There are about 20 of those type of " cheap shots" a game in the NHL.


....and that's why the NHL struggles to get any kind of viewership outside of Canada and a few US cites within a few hours drive of the border.

The reaction to all this has been hilarious, first some scrub cross checks the face of the league on the way to the bench (from behind, way after the play is over). Then the team that is supposed to be all about being rough completely and totally loses their shit when one of the Pens' fourth liners levels a guy cleanly center ice.

That doesn't even cover Mike Milbury going on radio and making fun of Crosby's concussions and calling Bylsma a pussy I guess for not walking across to the Flyers' bench to single-handedly fight the entire team? I'm sure Dan would beat Milbury's ass but Mike would want no part of him considering he doesn't play on a pee wee team.



So, are You trying to say that there should be seperate rules for Crosby & Malkin compared to the rest of the players in the league? If so, now You understand on why most NHL Fans can't stand Pittsburgh or Crosby. Second, Brayden Schenn isn't " some scrub" who hit Crysby. The Kid was the top Junior prospect in the World last year.  I do agree with You that the Hit on Briere was a good, legal hit, but Malkin & Crosby are 2 of the dirtest players in the league and Schenn was paying Crosby back from a dirty play earlier in the game.. Did You see when Crosby slashed Voracek so hard across His Leg that Crosby stick shattered in Two with no penalty call, right in front of the Ref? I guess that's fine because it's Crosby.
