Hockey is supposed to be about physical and mental excellence, about skills and sportsmanship, about cheering crowds and spectacular plays. Hockey is supposed to be about passes, shots and saves, not about vicious hits and near death incidents.

Sure, Hockey is a physical sport with plenty of pushing along the boards and hustle for the puck but that is not a reason to tolerate predatory attacks, head hits and repetitive deliberately inflicted concussions.

The players are the heart and soul of the NHL and yet they are not protected and literally risk their lives every game to earn their wage and generate profits for the team owners and league.

The violence has to stop before another players suffers a terrible injury or dies. Just yesterday, a 25 years old player (Jake Evans) was attacked in a useless and extremely violent way. Fans from Tampa Bay to Edmonton are fed up with the violence and want change. How can the NHL tolerate actions that would be punished by jail outside of the ice? Start banning players for seasons at the time, press criminal charges when applicable and make the NHL worthy of the beautiful sport that Hockey is.

Some people don't like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster - Elon Musk
