calling colin campbell

OK, so Danny Briere loses control of his stick while he's falling to the ice after getting chopped in the legs, and accidentally gets Leach in the head.  He gets 2 games.  And I understand.  I don't necessarily agree, but I get that the league is trying to get players to take responsibility for their sticks no matter what.  I can live with that.

Darcy Tucker, a repeat offender of intent to injure rulings, wrecks a dude's knee and tries to get him in the head because he's all mad that he got lit up by a different Sabre.  And he basically saved the Maple Laffs a point.  No suspension, no penalty, just a "well done" from his idiot coach.  Hello, Mr. Campbell, there's a  2 x 4 waiting for you if you don't see the need to suspend this guy.

The NHL is making a big deal of trying to cut down the number deliberate injuries, yet they refuse to concede that the best rule they could enact would be to repeal another one.  The instigator penalty.  That stupid penalty penalizes teams that try to take care of these things on the ice in a less dangerous fashion.  Sure fights are violent, but you're generally not going to cut someone's eye out or break their wrists or ankles or tear an ACL or MCL with a punch or three.  When you let guys like Tucker get away with these things on the ice, and then protect them from the consequences of said actions with the instigator rule, then you're going to get a lot more stick work.  And dirty as hell play.  And guys with blown out knees, one eye, broken necks, or concussions that can screw your head up for LIFE.  So tell me Mr. Campbell, is that what you want?
