    Every ticky tack penalty seems to get a thread nowadays begging for a suspension. Give it a rest. This is the Stanley Cup Playoffs. You’re acting like soccer cry baby fans.

    I support suspending players for illegal hits. But god damn give it a rest with all these threads. They’re usually minor penalties at most.

    Let the boys play.

    Also how people react to fights with negativity instead of excitement. I don't get that since all hockey is, is entertainment.

    We're going to need a slow-motion gif from twitter to make that type of decision.

    How can you even say this to someone?? Reported for harassment.

    For real though I agree with OP. Its getting silly. I have a feeling atleast some of these threads are started by trolls though.

    It's like the best thing to do is eliminate physical contact so that people on here don't get mad.

    I said it in another thread but I’ll say this. Real dangerous hits like the ones where guys skate a long way to deliver a headshot or take out a guy’s knee, have to go. They can ruin a career or a life. The rest are fine, unless the nhl really wants to change its nature. But I for one don’t care about the agitating stuff. That’s part of the game. And I believe players would agree. That said, the instigator must go. I trust the players themselves with policing the ice more than the refs. The refs suck.

    I agree lol.

    OP, you know what you could do? Just ignore them if they bother you. I doubt the DOPS is checking the HFBoards to see if something requires a suspension or not. It's the internet after all.

    Or, he could make a thread about it on a discussion forum to start a discussion. That works to.
    Its a good thing to bring up I think. Let the players play, dont get to soft. Its a worrying trend, I really dont want hard play, hits, fights or even the nasty stuff to go away. Intent to injure and reckless play should absolutely be punished and I want that gone, but the rest, definetly not.

    People whining about other people whining are far worse than the first whiners.

    People making threads about every hit usually isn't due to thinking every hit should be a suspension. It's because "my team's player got suspended for something and I'm upset, so every time any play that is even remotely comparable happens, I'm going to make a thread to cry foul in order to complain indirectly about that suspension."

    So I don't think it's really HF being soft. I think it's HF being whiny and homerish.

    I agree, but the negativity now stems from all of what we've learned about CTE and concussions lately.

    People always say this then you visit their own forum and the same people are arguing for every call to go for their team.

    Its always been like this, its less about being soft and more about wanting players/teams that you don't like to be punished/suffer. Who doesn't enjoy the schadenfreude of an opponent losing a game because their key player had to miss due to suspension?

    Also a symptom of players not policing themselves.

    It used to be that if an opposing team took liberties with one of your players, then you would expect your team to respond likewise.

    Now they seem content to wait around for the refs or George Parros to exact justice.

    Says the Boston fan, whose hockey team arguably writes the book on dirty play and how to disguise it as just part of the game (along with the Ducks).

    I was thinking the same thing. The whole Stanley Cup Playoffs forums is about 'questionable' plays. Come on boys!
