And technically a paper cut could kill you, but under normal circumstances they don't. Likewise, Brooks wasn't using any sort of racial terms that we know of and Neil was the one hitting Orpik in the head in this case.

The point is that there is no reason to fight here. Why would a top defenseman go off for 5 minutes in exchange for a bottom line grinder/agitator. I even like Neil. However, there's absolutely no reason for him to fight there. He should fight him because Neil is giving him a cheap shot? Meh. He just chose to one up him. I definitely don't approve, but, like I said, they were both acting like idiots.

Orpik isn't a "fake" tough guy. In fact, he's very tough. Fighting doesn't make you tough.
