My thoughts ran to the Pittsburgh series when I saw that. To be fair, EVERYONE wants to punch Crosby in the mouth. Especially after his cheap tactics in that series.

As for the tough guy mentality, he only uses it so often. He's building up character that may have him become captain soon enough. But he doesn't need that mentality anyway, he's got players like Hartnell and Simmonds that will throw down. But it doesn't hurt, and comes with the territory.
