    …why not show the hit Chara gave to Paccioretty ? – If that’s the main feature that attracts you to the game. I feel sad to see the way hockey is heading. Those who think a thirst for violence has always been a part of the sport know less than they think. Just ask hockey old timers, and the vast majority say they are also concerned with the direction of the game.

    One theory is: that to attract male adult newbies to the game, you have to showcase violence. In the process, how many families decide to not allow their kids to practice the game ?

    What a shame !!!
