People idealise hockey fights as some sort of honourable bushido code between warriors. Like the only way pro hockey players that risk injury and pain daily can prove their masculinity is by fighting to settle any physical play.

If Emelin wants to fight to show he doesn't back down and isn't risking his eyesight, okay, but he should try picking his spots a little. Respect for his willingness to stand up for himself though.
