I find it strangely odd that the people who tend to be against fighting in hockey are supportive of swinging a hockey stick at a player on the other team with the intent to injure.

You react physically within the rules of the game. You fight, you get a 5 minute penalty, + 2 if you instigate. If you go up to a player swinging your stick to injure, you are automatically ejected from the game.

Should Kessel skate up behind Scott next game and Bertuzzi him? Offensive defense to protect yourself, right?
The part I didn't like from Kessel is he was stick hacking after the linesman and everybody else joined in...plus he went in after the brawl to hack him again. If you don't want to get involved then get the f$%^ out of there!
