The NFL is not a perfect league, but it doesn't shy away from taking steps to protect its players. They can be heavy-handed when fines and suspensions are handed out, but in the end it's for the good of the sport.
The NHL, on the other hand, often looks like a garage league. That Chara didn't even get a slap on the wrist for this cheap shot on Max Pacioretty is a disgrace. . . I love the Boston/Montreal rivalry as much as any hockey fan, and far be it from me to wish to take out the physical elements that make hockey such a great sport. But vicious shots like this one, which could have ended Pacioretty's career and his life, should be condemned.
Glad to see that a "History will be made" spoof has already been produced. Head shots have to addressed by the league before a tragedy takes place.
