It's not about fighting, but if you are going to play tough (I think hockey is still a contact sport) you will get challenged. It's more about intimidation than actual fighting. A guy like Carkner was more valuable for what didn't happen when he was in the line-up. A guy like that makes guys on his team braver, and guys on the other team think twice about roughing up the not so tough guys. That's why the Islanders gave him a nice contract.

Right now, Colton Orr is playing regularly for Toronto, and they have that other big tough guy too, Mc somebody. I.m not looking forward to the Ottawa/Toronto game the way things have been going lately.
