I'm sick of hearing people complain about fighting in hockey. I've got to the point of punching people out.

Fighting is in hockey. That's that. Who the heck leaves the arena disgusted during a fight and never returns? It's part of the game. It’s hockey!

Lacrosse, for example, has fighting and people go nuts and love it. How come the NHL is being bugged about banning fighting? People should keep their mouths shut and watch the game for what it is.

Fighting is part of hockey. People are going to have to get used to it.
