Fine - physical play is great & all, but blind cross-checks or late interference & blind-side clips is ‘cheating’ &  something that disrespects their contracted oath to their fellow union bros.

 

Rather my team win with honour than in the Schiefle or Khadri way. 

Easy now. I never endorsed any of the less than honorable activity. Maybe take a breather. 
 

And the NHLPA is no brotherhood. It’s a bunch of opportunists looking out for themselves.

Playoff hockey is a dog eat dog environment. If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.

Pietrangelo took an avoidable penalty earlier in the period that lead to an Avalanche goal and then responds late in the period by giving his team the lead before the second intermission. That's a good way to make up for your mistake.

Now we’re talkin’ some serious politics aren’t we?  ‘Cuz they really should think of the NHLPA as a tightly-knit brotherhood, if they want to prolong careers & have more  leverage & enhance their quality of life during/after pro-hockey.

Glad that Benning hired the assistant coach that helped develop Pietrangelo. 

Pietrangelo has been a solid defenceman for a decade.

This league has a serious identity crisis.

 

Seems like they constantly try and straddle the line between 90’s clutch/grab/interference and new age hockey that doesn’t allow you to breathe on another player.

 

Must be super frustrating as a player…

They don’t. If they did, they would have taken a stand against the league regarding officiating and the DoPS.
