Players Back Recent NHL Suspensions

“That kind of stuff is crazy,” said veteran winger Mark Recchi. “That’s stuff that doesn’t belong in the game. We’re a sport that allows fighting and you can vent your frustration by a fight if you want, but it’s a clean, hard game and that stuff doesn’t belong.

“I think (NHL disciplinarian) Colin Campbell has done the right thing.”
