There’s something wrong with this picture: there was way more talk about the wonderful goal by San Jose Shark teenager Tomas Hertl and the appropriateness of it (never mind teammate Joe Thornton’s “rooster” follow up) than there was about hits to the head (San Jose’s Mark Stuart, Vancouver’s Alexander Edler and Buffalo’s Patrick Kaleta) and hits from behind (Montreal’s Lars Eller).

Honestly.

Which should we be talking about and trying to get out of the game?

There was more outrage about Hertl’s flair in a one-sided game and Thornton’s inappropriate, but amusing dick joke about how he would celebrate a four-goal game, than there was over the relentless tide of dangerous hits.

I get it.
