Great White Bites
Drew\'s Thought of the Day - 10\/24\/2013

Eight days ago Dan Boyle was carted off the ice on a stretcher after a chickenyouknowwhat hit by Blues forward Maxim Lapierre.

Since then there have been four more dangerous head shots and/or dirty hits from behind.

Cody McLeod from the Avalanche runs Nick Kronwall from the Red Wings Michael Grabner from the Islanders catches Nathan Gerbe on the jaw.

Ryan Garbutt's feet leave the ice, (note he didn't leave his feet) and KO's Dustin Penner.

AND .. .tonight I'm watching the Bruins Loui Eriksson being helped off the ice after getting his head snapped by the Sabres John Scott.

Are these guys a wee bit slow on the uptake?

Don't get me wrong I still don't fret and worry or wring my hands about theses poor boys getting hurt or the NHL looking bad or the long term effects of concussions. Callous?

I know but who is more callous and uncaring, me or the meatheads that continue to allow and perpetrate these idiotic hits?

It's not the Head Honchos in the NHL's offices who are at fault.

I believe that 100% of the blame should be placed with the players union and it's administrators.

Until the NHLPA members demand that all the union members treat each other with respect, nothing will change and guys will continue to be carted off the ice wondering what day it is and if the day will ever come when they can get back on the ice.
