    The Obvious answer is to get rid of fraud like Parros, but another goon will probably take over. What would be a permanent solution?

    Blow it up! Not great, not terrible, but it is a solution :dunno:

    Honestly though, no idea. Hard to answer without actually polling players because what appears to not work for fans may be considered acceptable by them. Do we really know how much they want the game policed? I dont.

    I think they need to stop considering injury as part of the equation. I see multiple hits in the year that get nothing because the guy pops right back up and plays on. A dangerous hit is just that, we shouldn't have to wait until someone ends up in a wheelchair before the league does something.

    They should post each incident in the poll section of HFBoards and the suspension will be the one with the most votes.

    hire a panel of people to make decisions that includes a sports physician, maybe 1-2 players, and then former referees or something similar. Having a random former player as the head of the dept is the issue. These guys are not qualified to be in the position they're in

    Hire an outsider to join the department? Maybe a doctor or someone with a health background. They can then add input based on the risk of injury in a play and not based on any old-school hockey 'code' or things like that.

    This is the preferable way. It should be a committee. Not some random ex-goon.

    The NHL is just bizarre when it comes to stuff like this.

    Abolish the position and add mandatory suspensions for specific offenses. Black and white. Eliminate judgment.

    Reform isn't possible while Colin Campbell is prominently employed by the league.

    These kinds of scenarios with Wilson and Cooke are just proof that advertisers barely give a shit about the NHL. More money on the line would change things quickly. I don't mind a heavy game but stop protecting these guys vs. the Savards, Karlssons, Panarins, etc. Know who pays your bills.

    It's just a reflection of the weak, low quality ownership base.

    Maybe don't hire players who were known bruisers, fighters, and dirty players to be the ones to hand out punishments for a start.

    Vote a new chairman, get rid of brain damaged Parros and replace them with someone competent. Who actually thought putting a fourth line plug who took punches to the head for a living would be a good choice for the head of dops ?

    As silly as that idea is, I don't doubt it would end up with better results than what the league is giving us now.

    Ah yes, automated penalization. We sure don't complain about any of that around here.

    All the media freaks out about this but none of them said a word when Kadri skated up to a guy and crosschecked him in the face.

    Then they cried when he got 3-5 games "because he was sticking up for a teammate".

    To be fair, Parros is the senior vice president of player safety and head of the Department of Player Safety, but there is a whole department below him; he does not make unilateral decisions on each matter of discipline. He, of course, sets the tone, but there's a whole group of individuals are who completely in line with it all, and have been for years, under other heads, as well.

    Easier said than done. This is an issue in every sport. What are the rules? I would love to see a poster on here create specific rules. I think they would find that it is way harder than you would think.

    Not sure what you are remembering, but Kadri got raked through the coals in the media, and was ultimately traded by his team because of it

    Wait til Tom Wilson retires from hockey and give him the position.

    he has been involved in hits on both ends - and been treated fairly and very unfairly (most times) - like this season when he was first player in nhl history to get suspended for that kind of hit.

    He’s a smart guy, physical and understands the game, a winner who has been involved in regular season games, Stanley cup games, etc.

    not trying to troll. He’d be great at it. He has seen all sides and been treated more unfair than any player in dops history. He knows more than anyone at this point.

    No one go to the caps board rn. Like I get it’s kinda fun to be the bad guy, but honestly it’s kinda gross reading the conversation there. I’d like to think if tkachuk did this I wouldn’t be defending this type of behaviour.

    Hockey culture of the 70s still permeates the NHL. It'll be a joke insignificant league in the US until they take things like player safety seriously. But the culture is that of old men that have more brawn than brains.
