a famous football player said it best,
"if you cant take a hit, you shouldnt play"
Bout sums it up folks. Hockey is a fast, brutal game, maybe the most brutal. Its not for people that want to whine and bitch about getting hurt. The game has and will police itself. Im all for highly skilled players but im not for coddling them one bit. If the game is made soft, it will lose its appeal and be replaced by something else. Being an elite player should always be coupled with being tough, durable and fearless. There is NO room in the arena
for anything less.
