From now on I'm wearing my yoga pants when I go to the hockey games. I want the players to see and feel the love I have for them. I want Benn to know I am a fan of his and don't hold any ill will towards him for punching Z in the back of the head. I would just die if someone beat his face in. Such a pretty face.
IDK, personally I'd like to see his "pretty" face get beat in.
Ok we get it. You don't like fighting. Ad nauseum.
I think he's made it clear that it's the arguments people use to justify fighting that bothers him. It bothers me too, and I love fighting. I don't like it because I think it protects stars (those days are longggggg gone). I like it because it's fun to watch. The same reason why I like big hits. I wanna see my boys pound on inferior teams players.
But go on, keep lying to yourselves that their is some deep unmeasurable impact that fighting has on the game that isn't just more injuries.
This is his first year pro, and he broke his leg during training camp. It takes time, he wasn't a #1 overall pick. He was 20th, he dominated junior and people expected him to step in and do it right away in the show. He'll be fine, the rest of this season is a learning curve. When he has a full summer of training, and a full training camp, then we'll see what he's made of.
Many thought he'd go straight to Detroit and make an impact. Instead he's barely making an impact in the AHL
