“I think the instigator rule takes out the honesty in the game. “I think the players need to police themselves. When you put that instigator rule in and you’re using all this supplementary discipline and all this crap that comes after, it needs to be taken care of right on the ice. I don’t think you’ll have that stuff ... the hitting from behind and the cheap stuff.
“We’ve taken too much of the game away from the players. The players are the ones who turn it into an honest-type game and we need to give that back to them. We never will — but we should.”
-John Tortorella, head coach of the Vancouver Canucks. More on Vancouver from Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun.
