Given that guys basically play with broken arms in this league, the fact that he's out at all is a serious concern.  He's hurt, plain and simple.  And he'll likely be playing through pain throughout the playoffs, which means less effective. We won't really know what's wrong with him until after the season, if at all, in typical hockey fashion.  Huge blow for the Rangers.

Couldn't agree with you more on your assessment of these types of hits and the damage it does to the game.

With respect to the injury, however, something is fishy if he is out "indefinitely".  The rangers said the same thing about "no structural damage" to Marc Staal's eye last year too and we all know how that turned out.

This blog needs to start a social media campaign to get Burrows suspended. First Simmons and now Burrows? Right at the end of the game?  No "hockey play" there.  #Shanahan #NHL

It's worth pointing out that this team's reversal of fortune (from its early season fiasco) started at the exact same time as Kreider turned his game around.  It may have been a little bit of a coincidence, but Kreider definitely played a role. I like Miller, but he has (and I can't believe I am saying this) decent-sized shoes to fill.

I respectively disagree.  You may not get a response, but you will make them think about it, which is something.

St. Louis is a superstar whose skill is only part of the equation.  His other HUGE attribute is his anticipation.  For some reason, he's just a little off, a little tentative.  He has put a lot of pressure on himself by demanding a trade and coming to a new team.  He's tight, but when he figures it out, he could take this team to another level.

You know, you make a really good point.  I know for a fact that airlines and other companies watch social media closely for any sign of trouble (e.g. people complaining about a plane on the runway) so that they can nip it in the bud.  I bet if "we" - meaning the blog - launched a social media campaign to politely request that the league address the play we might be able to do more than we think.  We need common hashtags, and we would probably need about 20k people to get on the bandwagon, easily doable given the outrageous nature of the play and the devotion of Rangers fans!

I can't understand why the league doesn't suspend people for that.

Miller is a pretty physical player too.  He can be nasty.  I'd like to see him play tonight.
