    I see the NHL is finally investigating ltr. Independent medicals for Lupus and Hossa

      I mean, saying their investigating it and actually doing something about it are two different things. I might be a pessimist when it comes to things like this, but I doubt they do anything to two of their most revenue generating teams.

        I sadly agree. This is likely just damage control after Lupul’s comments earlier in the week and after Zetterberg basically said in an interview this summer he would call it a career after this season ,coincidentally when the pay cheque drops to league minimum

        I just wish this league would crack down on this bullshit, it’s hard to take them seriously on any issues.

        The Hossa one really drives me nuts. They didn’t even try to come up with a “back injury ” or something believable. Its like they dared the league to do something
