This kind of stupid violence has no place in the sport -- and everyone keeps saying that, but these attacks keep happening. Simon's madness came on the three-year anniversary of Vancouver Canuck Todd Bertuzzi's brutal attack on Colorado's Steve Moore. The league keeps lengthing suspensions of players who use their sticks to inflict injury to opponents, but it keeps happening. And these are the moments that make the sports shows and get all the views on the Internet. It's what the league is known for, and that's a terrible shame, particularly because the play of the professional game has become so good in recent years, led by some young and fabulous skaters who've brought a new look and excitement to the post-lockout NHL.
