because all purpose i dunno

Regardless of your opinion on either team. Regardless of your opinion on hitting in hockey and whether or not it has a place.

If you’re seriously suggesting an eighteen-year-old kid somehow DESERVED an injury because of his “attitude” or because he wasn’t being responsible enough, you’re just…not a very nice person.

Rookies like Laine and McDavid deserve to be able to play their full seasons, without getting taken out by unnecessary and completely preventable hits.
