Ryan Rishaug: “Sorry for the grainy pic – This was 10x more dangerous than anything that happened to McDavid in LA, this could have been bad. These are the ones that require a major response no matter the situation. This can’t happen without a major ruckus of some sort following.”
Ray Ferraro: “But here’s the real thing with this play for me. It gets a lot of notice, as it should, BC it involves McDavid. But every player deserves better from the league and officials on this dangerous play. Penalty every time ! Most dangerous area on the ice.”
