from Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail,
“There are unwritten rules among the players,” Toews said, after the Blackhawks morning skate…
”It’s not a perfect world. Some guys do respect each other, and some guys don’t. You want to play hard within the rules of the game – and a lot of guys have that attitude,” Toews continued.
“But then you look at … some of these hits … and they (players) are going in at an unnecessary speed.”
And what if a player does that and then sits in the dressing room and says he didn’t mean to injure an opponent?
“If you’re going to sit there and answer questions after you hit somebody like that and say you didn’t want to hurt them - you’re lying through your teeth,” Toews said.
