You can be as tough as you try to be but injuries are a physical fact not a state of mind. Players know that. Do players hang back from going into corners with Guddy and Edler because they are not mentally capable? NHL players have seen it all by the time they reach the NHL. They often avoid going into those corners because of the real threat of being injured. Regular season games might not warrant that risk. IMO that is why CUP play is a totally different season. The plays are all more important and players more willing to take the risk to have success. Why do NHL players love the enforcers? Every time they engage in a fight they run the danger of permanent physical damage. Broken faces or concussion. I am actually surprised that a hockey player has not been killed in a fight. Soldiers are taught how to kill with one blow to the face. Never said that, and never thought so neither... You know as well that come play offs he is going to get treated far nastier than now. My point was, if someone has to drop the mitts every time somebody give a 'soft' crosscheck to EP or BB in the middle of the ice, we will PK most of the time. EP actually initiated the incident to get the reaction. Love that... Don't want neither EP or BB to fight at all, but I don't want them to hide neither. We got enough players on the team that can jump in if it is needed. PS. I agree that it could very well end up with someone getting seriously injured or worse... But things won't change until that happens...just like the Bertuzzi incident... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
