This week, Cherry talked a lot about headshots. He eventually transitioned into a talk about a hit that happened Monday night in Denver, where Colorado's David Koci took down Washington defenseman Mike Green.
To hear Cherry's remarks in full, you'll want to head to the 4:40 mark of this video, right after Cherry lights up Dr. Charles Tater for blaming Cherry for head injuries in hockey.
Should Green be more aware of who's on the ice? Absolutely. However, Green shouldn't be expected to brace himself for an illegal hit while his team is up 5-0. Green played the puck and was blasted from behind by a gutless Koci.
The fact that Koci inexplicably wasn't suspended has nothing to do with Green. It's an indictment of the incompetence of the NHL. The league continues to hand out lip service about headshots, but they appear either unwilling, incapable, or simply unprepared to back up their words.
