from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
“The unique thing about our sport is that we play with hockey sticks that potentially can be used as weapons. This is a game that is very emotional and guys are only human. Fighting gives them an outlet to release (energy and frustrations) instead of slashing, cross checking and high sticking.
“You almost never see a tough guy grab a small skilled guy and start (punching) either. There is still a code.”
Gretzky said his stance has softened a bit with time.
