NHL Code Of Ethics

So what have we learned today, boys and girls?

Sticking your thumb into someone else's mouth: NOT BAD; biting the thumb that someone else has stuck into your mouth: BAD. A bite to the thumb is worth a two game suspension. That's right, when someone sticks their thumb into your mouth while trying to do who knows what, you must take it like a man.

At least grandstanding about getting bitten is worth a two-minute unsportsman-like-behavior penalty. Not that the Senators can convert an opportunity like that these days...

We knew that once the officials got into it that it would change into something other-worldly, but this takes the cake.
