Great job as usual, Ken. You should send a copy to Shanny....

Sadly, you've hit the mark and that glazed look that Daniel had.

This league has learned nothing since 2004 and the fact that there are "repeat offenders" is proof of that. Zero tolerance means you don't tolerate repeat performances. Not that this applies in this case (Danny/Keith), but somehow it does in that the message still isn't strong and clear enough.

This one disturbs me because it's someone who's never played that kind of game who's been subjected to it. Just plain wrong.

Well done, sir.

Fantastic art work!

I reiterate my proposal; one for one. for every game that a player misses as a result of blatant intent to injure the offending player misses an equal amount of games and his salary is donated to a charity of the injured players choice. If the league is serious about taking serious injury (including Raymonds broken back) out of the game, a paltry 5 game suspension for Keith at this juncture of the season doesn't cut it. This is simply a good rest for him before the playoffs begin. If Shanny was serious, he would have suspended him the first 5 games of the playoffs.

And yes, this would be directed at Bertuzzi and at Matt Cooke. The message needs to be clear. This is entertainment, not at the cost of life changing injuries.

That is great. U would think after 100 Concussions in a year, they would do something about it.

One of these days the NHL is going to be in a US court defending a charge of failing to protect a player that has been injured, then and only then will there be any real action taken.

I like it. I just hope "Fragile" is referring to the head and not the player. With all the abuse the Sedins have taken over the years they have proven they are not fragile. Just wish they didn't always turn the other cheek. Or, even better, if they had some teammates that would actually come to the aid of a couple Art Ross winners. Kassian, Weise, Bitz, Alberts ANYONE!!!!

Good comic.

I remember seeing a comic in one of the newspapers, it was Bettman standing in front of a New Orleans Saint player and saying "That'll be two minutes"

It really is a joke how light the NHL punishments are for these things. The Players union should make this a top priority in their negotiations. Honestly I would suffer through another lockout if they came back the year after a safer and more respectful league. Do it for the players, it's their careers and their health on the line.

Great job!

Keith's suspension was appropriate given his lack of history with suspensions. Any number of games he would receive would not help the Canucks either way. The referees failed to toss Keith out of the game for a clear hit to the head. Their inconsistency is pathetic.
