PGHA: Punishment for Moussaoui

Well, since a lot of people are dissapointed with Moussaoui only getting life in prison (instead of life in front of a firing squad... with pork bullets), Harvey asked what other sentence would have been appropriate for the admitted terrorist.

Well, in keeping with the spirit of playoff hockey (Buffalo is up 3-0 over Ottawa in the second round...) I thought that Moussaoui could become the official Hockey Puck Tester for the NHL.

When pucks are made for the NHL, they are frozen for a few weeks and then tested for a maximum allowable bounce. This is to make sure that all of the pucks behave the same.

What I am proposing is that instead of the current test. Simply tie Moussaoi into a net - naked of course - and use a high velocity puck gun of some sort to pummel him. Any pucks that rebound beyond a set distance will be deemed unsuited for NHL play. And then re-loaded into the gun for further testing. And instead of just the test sample (a small, but representative percentage of all the pucks used), every hocky puck used by the NHL can be tested! And once all the official NHL pucks have been cleared for use (some tens of thousands of pucks), we can then test all the practice and non-league quality pucks (millions and millions of them).

That's pucked up.

Can I watch?

Sounds like a great idea. For maximum effect, we need to do this in a totally empty arena. Not even any observers. What could be worse for him than to be whacked with pucks in an empty room with no one to pose for?
