In case you haven't watched much hockey over the passed few seasons, the 'goons' who get four shifts per game and bring nothing outside of their fighting are a dying breed.

Then there are guys like Bobby Farnham, who not only can skate a regular shift and play the game of hockey, but can police the ice as well. So Clackson goes after Morrow, **** happens. Instead of two goons (Mac/Clackson) going at it, Farnham chased Taffe across the ice minutes later and forced him to drop the gloves and fight.

One of their fighters goes after a top prospect so one of ours goes after their top player. Do you think Taffe enjoyed having to fight like that? No. That sends a message. Steve ****ing MacIntyre pucnhing a helpless guy in the head while on the ice is embarassing and in the end solves nothing.
