That is one of the worst things I ever read.

Guess what? If everyone did what Havlat did, we'd have about 4,00 crosschecks to the face a night.

Hooking sucks. But it happens to EVERYONE. Not just Havlat-the-sticker.

He needs to a grow a set and deal with it like a man, not a spoiled brat looking to take someone out with a cheap shot. If the hooking bothers him that much that he wants to drop the gloves and take the penalty, thats different. Which he won't of course.

But he isn't so damned special that he can go around cross checking people in the face because he was hooked. EVERYONE gets hooked ALL THE TIME. And you don't go around cross checking people in the face because of it.

You're just not able to make the connection, are you?

Actually Havlat is a special player. So is Kovalchuk, St Louis, Lang, Hossa, etc. These players should be allowed to play the game without exerting most of their energy fighitng their way through slashes, hooks, punches and "slew foots". If you fail to recognize that a player can lose it because he is more of a target than most players in the league then I'm not going to bother to explain your attitude is exactly what's killing the game.

This is just devolving into insults, use this thread if you feel the need to continue this discussion, and keep it a bit more civil.
