You guys just don't get it... Price hasn't been run into nearly as much this year. Guys like Orr and Thornton aren't going after Subban like before. Orr tried it and Parros stopped it immediately.... When you have great players, you protect them. Hockey people understand this.... Keyboard pacifists don't and get whiny. Fighting is part of the game and 98% of players want it in there. That should be good enough for anyone. Don't like it? Don't watch....
