Via a whole bunch of people who emailed me this video, here's the video of the Islanders' Chris Simon chopping down the tree that is the Rangers' Ryan Hollweg.
This is the beauty of hockey: somebody can use their stick as a baseball bat and illegally slash someone in the face, and the commentators say, "Wow, he might get five minutes for this." Any other sport and he'd be tarred and feathered. But make no mistake: hockey shouldn't make the move to become more like other sports; other sports should be as lax as hockey is about violence.
p.s. Obviously Simon was just pissed because the Islanders rep crappy Long Island while everyone from the city loves the Rangers.
