The heading for this piece isnt an attack on John Moore, far from it, it is at the NHL and it's lack of punitive punishment on head shots.

Moore really does have a choice here, he misses the shoulder and collects the head of Dale Weise. I know that playoff games are percieved to have 'more value' than a regular season game however the punishment should fit the crime.




As I have said before, until the NHL actually starts putting real punitive restrictions on illegal hits and actions on the ice, the players are going to continue to make these plays. It is perfectly obvious that the players cannot or will not change their actions on their own. The NHL is going to have to do it for them.
