That clip of Kariya and the interview is terrifying.

Goaltending is a position of "Not Great Depth" for the Maple Leafs says Ray Ferraro, who says true things.

Thanks.

Side note, I guess, but I will never be convinced that Scott Stevens didn't go out of his way to hurt guys.

Scott Stevens definitely went out of his way to hurt guys. Did he go out there trying to end people's careers... probably not.

Eh. He saw what happened with Lindros and Kariya and I don't think he changed it up at all.

And just to be clear I think there's a distinction between guys who lined guys up for big hits and guys who intentionally hit heads with as much force as possible. Rob Blake, for instance, was the former. Stevens was the latter.

Excellent period by Borgman. Moved the puck. Hits. Goal.

I have to assume that Air France ad is an implicit promise that they dope their in-flight meals with MDMA.

I think when Stevens lined someone up, he wanted to take them out of the game. I never saw the hits as "illegal" at the time.

They weren't illegal. I do think, though, that there was sort of an unwritten gentleman's agreement that you shouldn't target and hit the head as hard as possible during the helmet-less era because of what happened to Bill Masterton. Then helmets came into the game and that got lost a little.

So, yeah, the NHL rules didn't prevent it but I still don't think that makes it right and I think it's guys like Stevens that necessitated a rule change.
