And round and round the player safety wheel we go. In what world does Kuzvetsov only deserve one game for a blatant slash to someones head? Why are we calling this high sticking?
This reminds me of Chris Simon, just a little less horrific.
Honestly if Burroughs just laid on the ice for a few minutes we’d probably see a suspension of a few games but because he’s a gamer and popped right back up, Kuznetsov is only going to get a one game suspension.
I know being the head of Player Safety is a thankless job. No matter what decision you come to, one side will always be angry. Having said that, I don’t think there’s been a human on Earth more incompetent at their job than George Parros. A guy who was hired to discipline players and to ensure the safety of all NHLers continues to do neither thing. How does this guy still have a job?
