What are your thoughts on the hits to head issue?

Should size matter?

Should I have to kneel down to hit a guy 2 feet shorter than myself?

Was it really an attempt to injure or just hard play?

What about the cross checks in front of the net? Ever had a bad back?

No one wants players injured and there should be some type of punishment handed out for hits deemed intent to injure. However the system should have more black and white standards on how each type of infraction will handled.

Specialized training equipment is now being added to strength and fitness centers making them true hockey training centers. With equipment like synthetic skating treadmills (BladeMill) players are able to develop better skating mechanics and a more powerful stride.
