No I mean he took a run at a D-man and then was not back in the zone to play defense until late in the play, I mean he literally took himself out of the play to try and hit a guy. Where did I mention fighting?
Sorry, I figured you were talking about fighting and sitting in the box, not him trying to hit a guy.
Hitting is his game. When you finish your checks, that often includes being left behind the play. Of course, the guy you just leveled is also out of the play. He'll miss hits occasionally, but he's still one of the best hitters in the league for his size. None of our other 4th liners put that kind of fear in defenders. I have no problem with him trying to hit people.
