"Clearly, the blindside and the unsuspecting player is what we're targeting. I don't think we're trying to reinvent the wheel here -- we have a great game. But in light of some of the hits -- obviously the David Booth one is kind of the alarming one that everyone took notice of -- I think it's going to be for the good of the game." -Joe Nieuwendyk on the recommended head shot rule.
