Ottawa Sun takes advantage of Lars Eller injury on cover

Montreal Canadiens center Lars Eller is currently in a hospital after suffering a concussion, facial fractures, and dental fractures after a brutal hit from Eric Gryba of the Ottawa Senators.  So what does the Ottawa Sun do?  Put a picture of a stricken Elder lying on the ice in a pool of his own blood!  Oh, and they also add the oh-so-clever caption "First Blood Sens" after a 4-2 Ottawa victory.

There's questionable tabloid newspaper covers.  There's tasteless tabloid newspaper covers.  Then there's this.  How something like this gets published is just baffling.  Concussions and head injuries are something we should TOTALLY be writing punny headlines about, you guys.
