I don't get this. And I agree with you. Whoever said a scorer shouldn't fight? Do we really need to bring in Byfuglien, Hartnell, etc? Hell even Getzlaf and Perry have faught in past games. If my linemate hits the ice and lays there from a high stick I'm whooping some ass regardless if I'm a scorer/depth/ tough guy/playmaker. To judge a players character for fighting is stupid. It's hockey after all and tempers flare.
