NHL Bandwagon Strikes Again (At least from the Cynical Isles Fan POV)



...okay, so we're out of the playoffs and have been for some time...but i know a bunch of you are following the SCF series.

Watching it has brought me a (in my opinion/from my point of view) valid question: How long until the NHL realizes that it's so called "squeeky clean" superstars (Zdena Chara, Tim Thomas, Sydney Crosby, and the likes) are not as clean as they realize.  Playing the game at a high speed and high emotions, things will happen, and hopefully now that we have Shanny as a disciplinarian, there will be a clear-cut code of conduct for players to adhere to...however, anyone else getting the carry-over feeling from the regular season that since Gregory Campbell is on the Bruins that they are getting a little extra liberties?  The whole Tim Thomas antics have to stop.  Imagine if that was any one of our 9-100 goalies we had in net this year...they would be banned for life simply because of the crest sewn on their jersey...however, the fact that this is the SCF and these teams have made names for themselves as winning teams, there is leeway, and frankly I can see the whole "BRUINS WILL WIN NO MATTER WHAT" mentality written all over this.  I hate to say it but i would rather watch USA Hockey or some foreign puck rather than the political and bullshit battle that has become the NHL.

^^ no need to comment on what would happen if RDP or Al Montoya or anyone of sorts did something similar...they would have already been hung  (in the literal sense) by Colin Campell.
