I liked what Henrik proposed.Strangelove wrote: Would it work if they went for 20, 40, 80 game suspensions??
Who the fuck knows.
He said make elbowing, hits to the head, and other violent infractions a double-minor, and call 5-minute majors on bad hits more consistently.
Unless they go with 20-40 game suspensions, which won't happen, the best way to tackle the issue is make the in-game cost of taking a dirty run at someone high so they think twice before doing something that may cost them the game.
