I really think that Scott Young deserves a major ban for his conduct on Sunday night at the nynex.
Hitting an opposing player can be condoned if the game is in progress and they can then defend themself. But to skate up behind a player and then pole axe the guy whilst the game is stopped is completely unforgivable.
Then as you get thrown out of the game you turn around and gesture towards the crowd.
This is incitement and in all other sports is considered one of the worst offences that a player can commit.
Surely this kind of behaviour is not welcome in this country because as they say at the Nynex 'Ice Hockey is a family sport' and players should not be allowed to incite crowds in such a way.
