I think most people here who have been calling for toughness just want us not to get bullied by teams who try to do what the Pens were doing yesterday. You know, so you don't have guys like Pyatt getting their faces pummelled with an elbow pad, while people around the league smile and say "Good Ole Fashioned Hockey Game".
You can't always prevent cheapshotting with fighting. But after you had your lunch money stolen from you, it's good to see someone stand up for you. Boosts morale. Being a bully may not be cool, but there is nothing wrong with standing up to one.
