‘Barbarity’ rules NHL

Jon Heshka has written another commentary on the state of the NHL in the Canadian newspaper – The Province. The article discusses the current lack of respect sweeping through the game

“Despite denouncements by the league and rules against such conduct, players are hitting one another harder (into the boards or open-ice checks), hitting higher (in the head) and hitting with a weapon (a hockey stick) more than ever before. Lost is a respect for the game and a willingness to “cross the line” with late hits and cheap shots.”
