The swift response from the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety regarding New York Rangers captain Jacob Trouba has ignited a heated debate over whether the league has done enough to protect its players in a specific incident.

In a Saturday matchup between the Boston Bruins and Rangers, Trouba delivered what can only be described as a baseball-like swing with his stick at the head of Bruins forward Trent Frederic.
The subsequent $5,000 fine issued by the Department of Player Safety for high-sticking has left many questioning the adequacy of the penalty.
Hockey Night in Canada personalities Ron MacLean and Kevin Bieksa openly expressed their dissatisfaction with the decision during the broadcast, suggesting that justice had not been served in this instance.
MacLean voiced his disbelief, stating,
"That's unbelievable, how can that only be a $5,000 fine?"
as the incident replayed on screen.
Bieksa provided a colorful description of Trouba's actions, likening it to a
"caveman-like swing"
and humorously dubbing it the
"Trouba Fred Flintstone."
Despite the Rangers winning the game, the focus lingered on the controversial incident.
Former NHL goaltender Kelly Hrudey seemed to align with the sentiments of MacLean and Bieksa, emphatically chiming in with a simple, "Right!" as his co-hosts shared their opinions.
The question now lingers: Do you side with these seasoned voices of the NHL, questioning the severity of the fine, or do you believe the NHL got it right with the $5,000 penalty?
The debate over player safety and disciplinary measures in the league continues to resonate among fans and pundits alike.
