That is not being a bad ass. Sorry.
Okay, cause you need to fight to be considered not soft ? Hmmhmm...

This is one of the thing that annoys me, claiming every other player in the NHL is soft for not being a massive brawler. Taking abuse constantly isn't being soft, it cheapens the term. Soft players are guys who fear contact. Kaberle is soft, post-2010 Cammalleri became soft, guys like Kyle Wellwood and Pominville are soft. Pat Kane and Kessel are soft but get away with it mostly.
Sedin's are softies. You know why? They take ANYTHING that goes after the whistle. That is what i'm refering to when I say they are soft. Remember that Thornton thing in front of the referee ? Any man who has some respect for himself would've atleast gave a little shove. If that's not being soft, I don't know what it is.
