The NHL should not get involved with what is said on the ice. In other sports (and probably hockey too) people talk about other guys families and crap like that. It's just trash talk. Now, if in an interview after the game with reports or with a magazine or something like that Simmons says, "Avery is a ***." Then ok fine him. But on the ice, who gives a crap? Say whatever the hell works to get the guy off his game. If Simmonds calls him a ***, doesn't mean he is homophobic or is against gay rights, just like if Avery called him a ngger it wouldn't mean Avery was racist. It's just talk to rattle the other guy. Of course, in reality, Simmonds might hate gays and Avery might hate blacks, but that still shouldn't matter if all they are doing is trash talking on the ice.
