Lets see if the NHL comes down on that goon Orr like they did on Simon. I won't hold my breath. Nice to go after a guy who just had facial surgery. the guy should be kicked out of the league!

The Dale Rolfe and Dave Schultz jumped to mind when I saw the potent punch by Colton Orr. In the Rolfe vs. Schultz fight, however, Rolfe didn't collapse. Shultz held the Ranger defenseman up so he could hit him with more punches to the face. This fight I never saw a stretcher enter the hockey rink so fast. At first, I thought Orr had some type of metal, like brass knuckles, in his glove. Orr is now up in the ranks as one of the NHL's best enforcers.

You can't even compare the two incidents. Even your Islander cronies will tell you that. If Fedoruk was that injured, he should not have played let alone drop his gloves. Stick to bocce ball paisan.

I thought the punches Clark Gillies landed on Ed Hospodar was the most brutal

i think that anyone who watches hockey, and enjoys seeing two men trade punches, the idea being of course, to knock the opponent senseless, should be made to receive those type of punches, and see how it feels . what kind of person delights in seeing pain and possible injury inflicted by one man onto another. how much bravado does it take to be up in the stands, or watching on tv, and cheering them on. really courageous when its not you on the receiving end of a punch. and please dont tell me it is just part of the game. i think there is as much intensity in most other sports, as an athlete, you want to win. but, beating another man senseless does not make you the better person. hockey should get rid of the fighting, that is not the type of skill required to make you into a good player.
