Ok Sabres fans I have a bone to pick with you… Zenon Konopka. Seriously? Let me just preface my rant by stating the he seems like an interesting (albeit odd) guy.

Zenon Konopka double-minor for high sticking Jason Demers - GIF

This is a bad call, actually it's pathetic, as Wild tough guy Zenon Konopka was given a double minor for high sticking. You can see by the GIF that Konokpa never touched Jason Demers.
