TOP SECRET: Secret flowchart NHL uses to hand out suspensions
I stumbled upon this while reading Down Goes Brown’s Blog (check him out here: Down Goes Brown), very interesting diagram the NHL uses to suspend its players.
We can all get a few laughs from this because of how much of a joke the discipline is in the NHL. Zero consistency, there seems to be almost no order. Random suspensions just handed out based on the degree of injury and if the aggressor is a star player or not. Now don’t get me wrong, the NHL SHOULD suspend its players also taking into account how severe the injury is, only then will justice be served, regardless of if they’re a star player or a goon.
Doesn’t that just blow your mind? Shocking isn’t it.
