Okay, I know this is not a gamer site, but it is filled by people from other cultures and countries. As a Canadian I am a massive hockey fan, who over the years have listened to people call it barbaric and dumb. Last night I saw a hit on one of my favorite players that near made me sick and frankly just sucked the wind clean away from me.  
The player never got a suspension for it just me, or is this part of the reason why the NHL is such a joke in the US?
