I disagree with your second point however unless you were meaning to be sarcastic. The 2 fights Peluso has had in combination with his dominance at the AHL level would suggest he is a top tier fighter. You get head injuries if you are a punching bag. You get hand injuries from landing a lot of hard blows.
Peluso absolutely blew Volpatti's helmet off with a shot - I agree with you, and think this was probably what did his hand in.

Peluso shows enough hockey sense that I'd rather he stayed away from the staged stuff. Heat of the moment, defending a teammate? Sure, go for it, but I'd honestly be surprised if there were many players that could go toe to toe with him, so I'd rather he settle it down, and play a simple, smart game. He's already proved the tough guy thing. I want to see more of his hockey play now.
