Players are becoming more and more boring due to this fictitious concept of silent respect. It's why the NHL will never be a bigger league than the NBA or NFL. The casual fan likes an athlete who enjoys winning. Nobody enjoys winning in the NHL in fear it might hurt the opposition's feelings.
Agreed. All these silly unwritten rules. Pretty sure the players want the game to grow....guys like PK will help grow it more than a guy like Gorges.
