    Tyler Dellow’s article is pure drivel. So many things wrong with it I can’t where to start. I am a Canuck fan and I believe zack should have been suspended longer as should any player who causes serious injury through recklessness but Tyler suggests we all need to kill each other in order to stop killing each other. Pure nonsense.
