I'm apalled that there is no discipline by NHL. Aren't they already being sued by ex players for concussion issues and head injuries? This kind is not even 'hockey play' and need to seriously get this sh*t out of the game.
That type of play seems to happen every game. The outcome here is unfortunate, but I don't think there is any/much precedent for suspension.
The NHL controls broadcast rights, not the teams. I'm sure the Yotes and Preds owners don't want the Leafs and Wings making money they can't dip their paws into, or worse, stream the games free on the Wings site so no one makes any cash.
And the NHL has relatively reasonable prices. The AHL and WHL charge $300+ for a full season.
I would like to see the NHL negotiate the next TV contract to give them the ability to offer a no-blackout service to fans.
