pac·i·fism (ps-fzm) n.

a. Opposition to war or violence as a means of resolving disputes.
b. Such opposition demonstrated by refusal to participate in military action.
You could have saved the time and effort providing the definition. I know exactly what the word means.
But, to be gracious to you, Gauthier does not believe in "violence as a means of resolving disputes".
Fighting is violent. Subban was constantly harrassed by Lucic and Horton. No one stood up for Subban to "resolve that dispute" between them in a violent manner. In plain English, no one on the Habs stood up to Lucic and fought him or Horton.
And, Gauthier had the entire offseason to resolve that glaring need. But, he is not a believer in violence to settle disputes. He is a pacifist. He is content to have the bullies in the NHL continue to do whatever they want without any retaliation from the team.
Maybe I should just call him a *****.
