"(Anti-fighting advocates) never been in our shoes, they've never played the way we play. They've never done the things that we've done. But they're the first guys to jump on the bandwagon and (say), 'oh, well, these guys are useless,' or 'they're goons and thugs.' "
"I know what's gotten me here. Guys have asked me if I could change it. You know what, probably not. I'd be a different guy. If I came up a different way, I might not be here."
-Steve MacIntyre of the Pittsburgh Penguins orbanization on the fighting topic. Much more from Sean Gentille of The Sporting News.
Reports after the game stated Ivanans was ok.
from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,
The death of Whitby Dunlops defenceman Don Sanderson struck a chord in hockey tough guys everywhere.
Theirs is the hardest job in sports and they are all acutely aware of the risks they take every time they drop the gloves.
“It does go through your head, but at the same time we have a job to do and it’s part of the game,” said Oilers enforcer Steve MacIntyre, who’s recovering from a broken orbital bone suffered in a fight with Eric Godard.
“A couple of my buddies had the same thing happen and fortunately they came through. It’s just the way it is, it’s the nature of the beast, you’re going to get hurt,
“It’s an accident, and accidents do happen. Heartfelt sympathies go out to the family, that’s for sure. You have to go on and deal with it the best you can.”

From the Edmonton Oilers:
General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today that the Edmonton Oilers have claimed forward Jesse Boulerice off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche and have placed left winger Steve MacIntyre on the NHL Injured Reserve List. [...]
Boulerice has played 170 NHL games with Philadelphia, Carolina and St. Louis, scoring 8-2-10 with 333 penalty minutes. He spent his first full season in the NHL with Carolina in 2002-03 and played a career-high 76 games with the Hurricanes in 2003-04.
from Robert Tychkowsky of the Edmonton Sun,
Steve MacIntyre has been waiting his whole life for this game.
He rode a lot of buses, jammed his six-foot-six frame into a lot of commercial airplane seats and traded punches with more hungry tough guys than he cares to remember for this chance.
So, while most people wouldn’t consider a road tilt in Anaheim and a possible fight with George Parros to be the best day ever, it’s going to rank right up there for the big-hearted 28-year-old.
