As with many things in life, there is a middle ground.

So, too, in hockey exists a middle ground between being an emotionless robot and THAT.

Fun is encouraged. Fun is good. So, too, are class, decency, grace, and sportsmanship. There are plenty of ways for a person to have fun AND exhibit good sportsmanship doing so. Likewise, there are plenty of ways for a person to exhibit sportsmanship AND have fun while doing so.

Those who are adults should be expected to exhibit such. Those who are children should be expected to exhibit both as well, and where they may be lacking, coaches and parents are expected to teach that.
