If Canucks’ Rome doesn’t get it, doubtful most ever will

The one thing I would’ve liked to have seen from Rome is an apology. By most accounts, this is a “good guy” who wouldn’t intend to injure. But you do a search for the word “sorry” in the stories using his comments and it never shows up. The guy doesn’t even have the decency to apologize for the hit. All he’s really worried about is the ban he received and the fact that if he was a half-second quicker he’d still be playing.

The Bruins and Canucks have built up quite a bit of hate for one another over the course of this series. At the end of the day, though, they’re all still human beings, still just hockey players, and some of these guys might even be inter-team friends.

It wouldn’t have killed Rome to be apologetic about a hit that not only altered a Cup Final series but altered a career. One of these days a hit like Rome’s, however, might kill unless everyone gets more serious about shots to the head.
