    They need to do some fact checking:
    Shore hit Bailey from behind upending him and Bailey fractured his skull going into convulsions and nearly dying.

    Scuffle with Laycoe????????? That is like calling WWII a minor disagreement between a few countries.

    Laycoe had high sticked Richard opening up a large gash on his head that was streaming blood. A delayed penalty was called and after the whistle Richard skated up to the ref and showed him the gash.

    He then skated towards Laycoe who dropped his stick and gloves expecting a fight when Richard lashed out with his stick hitting Laycoe on the face and shoulders. The linesmen tried to restrain him without success and he went back at Laycoe again picking up his stick that he had dropped when grabbed by the linesmen and only stopped when he broke his stick over Laycoe's back. The linesmen grabbed him again and again he broke away, picked up anothe stick and broke that stick over Laycoe as well.

    Linesman Cliff Thompson again grabbed Richard and this time he lashed out with his fists - KO'ing Thompson with two shots to the face.

    Richard was assessed a match penalty for deliberate attempt to injure and then had to face a disciplinary hearing. It was the second time that season that Richard had hit an official. He was a repeat offender.

    Here is the actual ruling from then NHL President Clarence Campbell who noted that Richard had resorted to his stick (recovering it several times to pursue the attack) in attacking another player and had punched out another official earlier in the season:

    I realize that, but I figured I'd ask anyways.
