If he does come back to hockey, don't you think this whole thing will make him very hesitant? I'm sure he has played hockey for a long time and has hit people with his stick thousands of times, just never in the head. If he did just "overswing" as I believe he basically said, won't he be a little iffy at the trigger now especially considering his goon role? I for one don't think i would be so gung ho about swinging my stick around or even laying into somoen real good if I thought even for a second that I would get all of the punishment that McSorley has seen.

This now sets a precedent that if you do something to hurt a person on the field of play you could be looking at a court appearance. I guess Butkus and Bednarik and the like would have been in prison long ago if they played in this day and age.
