The last time a player was suspended for a play against a Maple Leaf was Andrew Ference in the lockout shortened 2012-13 season. Brendan Shanahan was the head of the @NHLPlayerSafety. There has been 225 suspensions in the 7 seasons since. 15 have been Maple Leafs.
The probability that none of the suspensions in the most active year since, Shanahan's last, were against the Leafs is just under 20%. The probability that none in 7 years have been against the #Leafs is 0.5 in 1000. Past 3 seasons under Parros have low Suspensions/GP
There is evidence you can see with your eyes, there is statistical support, there is an undeniable bias in the Department of Player Safety. The Leafs have double the average of suspensions over that time span, but have only had 4 instances of discipline to opposing players.

With the opt in/out date deadline on Jan 18th 4 the @NHL #concussion lawsuit I wanted to revisit this breakdown from @SheillaDingus on the red flags of the settlement:

1/ A potential life & death situation is noted, in which the #NHL says “live or die...

advocacyforfairnessinsports.org/nhl-concussion…
we don’t care, just don’t ask us for any money.” Players are instructed to file a claim from the Additional Payment Fund—if they live long enough

2/ The NHL control of testing procedure immediately drew a red flag. It is notable that the cost of testing is NOT included....
in the total value of the settlement but is instead an uncapped fund under COMPLETE control of the NHL

It seems odd that no one to my knowledge has reported this

“In the big picture the cost of these exams is de minimus, particularly when the NHL is in control of these exams”
