I often wonder where all you guys played that was so wonderful that you were never afraid of anyone coming after you. Angels on your wings I guess
Because I didn't play much hockey where one could get away with fighting, and besides I had no interest in fighting guys. In addition, just like every hockey player, I was in flippin' gladiator pads. Never would I ever have to "answer the bell" for a fight cause I made a clean hit. I'd never even dream of it. And if you're gonna jump me and "punch me out" because I don't deem it worth my time to fight? Then you have to "answer the bell" from a whole team.
I don't buy that kind of paranoia when you're padded like an armoured vehicle, and hitting and getting hit is a part of the game. Even if I know a guy is trying to run me. You just keep your head up, don't take a suicide pass, and don't let him follow the numbers into the corner, go in sideways and you're fine. If he wants to jump and hit me in the head, then I'll make him miss like an idiot for jumping.
