"For the sake of the game, they oughta throw him in San Quentin.He is a criminal element! The worst goon in hockey today.Oh, yeah. Real cement-head." - player/coach Reg Dunlop
If like guys getting their faces run into the dasherboard while totally defenceless - you're in luck. Take a look at Scott Hartnell's hit on Andrew Alberts - this also works if you're a big fan of guys laying motionless on the ice.
I've got a theory I'm working on - I think that society has passed hockey by in terms of what types of behaviour are acceptable and hockey has steadfastly refused to evolve. I think that goes a long way to explaining why the NHL just cannot get a foothold in the United States. Look for an expanded version of this in the coming weeks.
And if it's kids being urged to brawl by their coaches - this might be more your style.
