Toronto Players Upset With Punch On Kulemin

from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail,

While Leafs coach Ron Wilson called the altercation a fight, some of Kulemin’s teammates didn’t see the match-up between one player who had never fought before and another with 33 NHL fighting majors as being all that clear cut.

“I was disgusted with that,” Kulemin’s linemate Clarke MacArthur said. “There’s certain match-ups on the ice and I don’t care what [Gleason] says, you know when you’re in the right match-up. A guy like Kulemin’s never been a guy to fight and Gleason does it a lot. He knows better than that.”...

“I thought it was a pretty cheap shot on Kulie there,” defenceman Tomas Kaberle said. “Obviously [Gleason] got his penalties and a game misconduct, but ... It’s tough when you don’t expect it. There was a scrum going on beside him and he didn’t expect the guy to punch him. That’s the way it goes sometimes. We haven’t seen a replay very well so it’s something we’ll look at afterwards.”
