Fan Poll Friday: Johnny Gaudreau Situation

What are your thoughts on the Johnny Gaudreau slashing situation?

NHL: Calgary Flames at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

It is probably the most talked about finger in professional sports right now, especially if you are a Calgary Flames fan. Johnny Gaudreau received around 21 slashes from Minnesota Wild players on Tuesday night according to a blog post by Darren Haynes and as mentioned in a recent article by samwell9 of Matchsticks & Gasoline, an injury was inevitable.

Gaudreau suffered a fractured finger that required surgery Wednesday to repair. Many Flames fans, and hockey fans in general are now having a great debate as to whether the slashes were intentional and what, if anything more should be done about it.

So we here at M&G want to know, what are your thoughts on the incident and what do you think should be done about situations like this going forward? This poll is a two-part poll. Vote for what you think of the incident and then vote for what you think should be the consequences of similar incidents going forward.
