While I like fighting, last night is a great example of how he can do his job and never drop the mitts. He punishes Vaananen with a great CLEAN hit and effectively takes him out of the play and the game (and the season). With Vaananen down, Hordichuk (I think it was him) rang one of the crossbar. He didn't drop the gloves but he did an invaluable service. He provided a physical/emotional spark for the Preds, generated a scoring chance or two off of his effort and physicality, and played his role to a 'T'. If Blake or someone like that had challenged him, he would have obliged. But just because he doesn't have any willing partners, don't take that as a knock on Hordy.
