To the NHL:
Concerning the display "put on" at the Coliseum between the Isles and Pens ... and that's why my sons no longer play hockey.
An embarrassment to "professional sport."

Agreed. I'm a little bit of a hypocrite on this issue, because I admit I perk up a bit and sit closer to the TV when a fight happens, but ultimately I realize hockey has to eventually join the 21st Century. This game, meeting with almost universal condemnation (from everyone but Islanders fans, who are so desperate for something to cheer about that they're cheering about sucker punches from behind), might just be the impetus that forces the league to look at the fact that their sport encourages behavior that in other sports might lead to prison sentences.
