is one of the things that I like about the NHL. The players sort things out on
the ice and settle things like men.
season, during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Raffi Torres steam rolled Marian Hossa with
a dirty and dangerous hit. Hossa suffered a concussion and Torres was suspended
for 25 games.
appealed the suspension, and the NHL reduced his suspension to 21 games. Torres
is now back playing with the Coyotes after serving his long ban.
guess you could say that we all knew that this day would come, and the first
time that the Phoenix Coyotes played the Chicago Blackhawks, Torres would have
to answer the bell against the one of the Blackhawks players. The hockey code demanded it.
Torres didn't turtle, he answered the bell, and did quite well against Jamal Mayers.
