If players didn't leap out of their skates to hit a player in the head there wouldn't be a talk about the team being penalized.
I'll make a comparison that I like to use. Regarding Somali pirates. Our government should send out a message to the world that if you are caught trying to hijack any sort of vessel our Navy will sink you to the bottom of the ocean. Harsh? Not in my opinion. But to some possibly. What will be the end result of this? Our Navy will get some great target practice, their ships will help start some coral reefs depending on the location. In all seriousness, eventually the dumb **** pirates will get the message that if they attempt to hijack a ship they'll die. It might take a few dozen but oh well.
Now hockey players are probably a little more intelligent that a Somali pirate so it won't take that long. If you do X then the penalty is Y. Very clear. Now it probably isn't fair to make the Coyotes play w/ a roster one short but I'm not opposed to the idea. Maybe if there were some penalties that would effect (or is it affect? **** I never get those right) the team, players like Torres wouldn't commit three penalties on one play. He could have gotten low, kept his skates on the ice and hit him. Still it would have been late but then maybe he would have only gotten an interference penalty and no suspension.
I don't feel sorry for him at all. He clearly hasn't learned and he'll continue to pay. **** him.
