ok, it was a solid punch to pratt's nose, I'll give you that, BUT either ditch the freakin' visor or join the nfl....
I don't recall tiger williams, joey kocur, mcsorley, terri o'riley,playfair,semenko, twist or REAL men wearing a pansy-ass freakin' visor! Come on, get real or get lost!
It's NOT a question of being a fighter or an agitator. It's a question of Honor and Pride. IF you choose to fight in the NHL then you abide by the "Un-written" code. ex... you don't punch someone while you're laying on the ice, trying to be seperated by linesmen; you don't throw punches after the linesmen have intervened. Perhaps you need to look at some of the classic Domi/Ray fights and you'll have a better understanding.
REAL men don't wear visors. Don't know how to make it anymore simple for you. Let me know what you don't understand about that!
IF you chose to wear a visor because your'e not a fighter or an agitator, then you need to leave the "Knuckle-chuckin" to the Chris Nilans, Paul Holgremn's, Tony Twist's, etc.
Wearing a visor puts you into a "Off-limits" when it comes to fighting, period. If you're challenged, there is NO disgrace for not accepting. There needs to be a price to pay associated with wearing the Kotex, er I mean shield. It's time to "Man-Up", that's all. I'm sure Gordie Howe and Johnny MacKenzie are laughing their ass off reading the garbage you expunge....
I had to call this a draw, because if Latendresse had taken off his visor, it may have ended differently. He killed Pratt, but Pratt tried to get his visor off, while Latendresse was throwing punches. Fighting code cancels out the huge hit to me.
