Carefully weighted comments and, well, I guess it is part of the game. I mean, non-hockey people can easily criticise that. he has said, it's part of the game now.

America's kids need to toughen up anyways.

ofcourse im not so sure a video game is going to help them with that, lol.

However, non-hockey people would have no reason to criticize. In football, you ram the guy down, tackle the crap out of him, don't you?

Hockey and fighting go hand in hand

peeps2954d ago

maybe it's cus i'm from the uk but i've never got this whole hockey and fighting thing. it's just retarded. 2 ppl have a little arguemnt, try to throw a few punches and fail cus they're on ice ffs, ref stands back and watches then sends em off for a bit.

just seems really immature and silly. surely if you wanna watch fighting watch it in the UFC or boxing or something?

I disagree. Fighting has always been apart of hockey and always will , its a secret mechanism to keep people from intentional fouling :) (my assumption anyway)... its not like you could hurt the other person anyway

but no i remember fighting on all of the hockey games ive played. my fav has to be wayne gretzky 64

I love seeing someone get slammed against the glass , or punched cuz the other person slammed em 3 times lol great stuff
