Hire clubs always welcome in the NHL

EDMONTON bad as the whole show was Trevor Gillies, it has again highlighted justice Hockey cultural romance limit as a reasonable response to violence on the ice.
It would be easy to Gillies, a bully with no talent for the New York Islanders, the penalty was served, but not necessarily for the explicit instructions when they struck the head of the Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck debt in the glass and get a 10 -game suspension from the NHL Colin Campbell discipline last week.
It would be for the islanders fault management, in particular the General Manager Garth Snow, who simply uses Gillies, and he expressed his disappointment at the suspension, which he described as too harsh.
Gillies support Snow praised his executors, a good citizen, care to be great community, again and again.
Gillies is NHL this month, public enemy number 1, which facilitates exchange of a doubt Matt Cooke, who last month represented everything wrong with hockey.
It is easy to say that people want, hockey, shakes his head with concern seems sincere, there is no place in the leadership of the sport has as a cheap knock Clutterbuck Gillies or his attack on Eric Tangradi Penguins in Pittsburgh nine Gilles suspension won the Thu, February 11
Interestingly, there is always a bad guy does not find an intolerable act of ice in the starting blocks this month for crude oil was discarded, injured or suspended.
There is always a place in the lists on the next guy ready to take hockey to do the dirty work for the coaches and players.
How can that be?
Take the case of Mike Liambis.
He is the player who reached each member of the Erie Otters of the OHL, 16, Kitchener Rangers defender Ben Fanelli Final Table in a game in October 2009. Fanelli has suffered a fractured skull and orbital bone and took the ice on a stretcher.
Liambis was suspended for the rest of the season 2009-10, OHL commissioner David Branch.
Liambis had a trial with the NHL Maple Leafs once his suspension ended. This did not work.
Therefore, the International Hockey League went Liambis Bloomington Prairie Thunder, and soon was for five games with a shot that broke Jason Lawmaster Muskegon spleen suspension.
Liambis chair at the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. During a regular season game in Vancouver on 25 February attacked the University of Alberta Golden Bears captain Eric Hunter proposes to him several times. Hunter was a concussion and facial surgery cuts in the attack suffered.
Liambis was for two games for all the good he did suspended. Then chose UBC, whose season was over to leave anyway.
Liambis quickly engaged with the Cincinnati Cyclones ECHL, a proud subsidiary of the Florida Panthers and the Nashville Predators NHL, the Press Club.
Content, Cincinnati head coach, Jarrod skald, also Liambis in Bloomington, where he trained collected an impressive 115 penalty minutes in 17 games. Oh, also had three assists.
Proud affiliate of the NHL, of course.
Liambis is certainly the hope of a test with another NHL team. And why not? Hes only 22nd
And his resume, far from being an obstacle to employment, appears to be a badge of honor in professional hockey. Part of the team, at some level, always ready to welcome him.
Someone is always looking for Gillies, a Cooke, Liambis, and so on.
There is no doubt that to show NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Campbell, Senior Director of Hockey Operations, the responsibility for leadership in all areas of sport, including excessive force. If you have a much tougher penalties, not only the likes of Gillies, but his coach, GM and owner, if any, the league office would send a strong signal in the entire system, not just the NHL to send.

NFL champion kills self to have brain studied

(CBSNews)  NEW YORK – For 11 years, Dave Duerson made his living as a hard-hitting safety in the NFL and was known for his brains as well as his brawn as an outspoken advocate of player rights. But last week, at age 50, Duerson sent perhaps his most powerful message to the game, CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian reports.Duerson committed suicide with a gun shot to the chest, which left his brain undamaged. His pro football career was filled with accomplishments: two time Super Bowl champion and four trips to the Pro Bowl. But after football, his life and his health began to fall apart.

Dave Duerson, ex-Bear, dead at 50Just hours before the shooting, Duerson had texted family members requesting his brain be donated to science and examined for a disease known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, caused by repeated blows to the head.
“There’s no question that NFL players are at higher risk for CTE than normal people,” said Christopher Nowinski, co-director of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy at Boston University.
Duerson’s brain was donated to Boston University, where researchers have studied the brains of 14 other former NFL players, 13 of which had CTE. Duerson’s request has re-ignited the debate over the impact this organized violence has on the brain and its links to dementia and depression that are still untreatable.
“We can’t diagnose it yet in living people,” said Nowinski. “We also can’t treat it.”
In the last year, the NFL has stepped up its efforts to address this issue, revamping its head, neck and spine committee, increasing fines on helmet-to-helmet hits and donating $1 million to The Boston Center.
“It’s tragic,” Bears fan Nick Sideris said about Duerson. “I remember him on that ’85 Bears team. He was an integral part of it.”
After his career ended with the Arizona Cardinals in 1993, Duerson ran a successful food-service business, but in recent years his life deteriorated. He lost his business, home and, in 2007, his wife to divorce. Most recently he told friends he was experiencing issues on the left side of his brain.
But his heart never left the game. Last spring he warned a gathering of former players about dementia. and now a singular, tragic statement impossible to ignore.
