This actions aren't part of the player's game, they're a response to a specific situation, that you as a fan on your couch or in the stands are not a party to. Things happen on the ice, things are said on the ice, that piss people off. If Andy felt the need to lash out at Henrique I trust that he deserved it. Andy seems like a pretty level headed guy. And I like that stuff anyways... Hockey isn't for the faint of heart or mind....
How's the view from that cross?

If the roles were reversed, and Brodeur stuck the knob of his stick in Turris' face you'd be apoplectic.
