I expect edler, guddy, Schaller, roussel, liepsic, and virtanen are gonna be assholes this year. The team has finally now reached the tipping point for jerks on the ice.

Edler ?? Definitely not an asshole. Doesn't fight, not an aggravater,
Schaller plays a tough game but not an asshole.
Leipsic ? Doubt he makes the team
Jake might be a good one.
Roussel is ok - just hope he can stay healthy.
Guddy can fight but doesn't do it often

The supreme assholes in this league are Marchand with Kesler a distant second. Both are good at throwing opponents off their game. Both are good at all aspects of the game, neither are good fighters.

Are we still concerned about NHL hockey 1970’s?

I got news for you. Goon hockey is dead folks

Toughness in today’s NHL now equates to compete level, playing in the dirty areas, board battle, forecheck hound, puck hound etc

It aint Slapshot but goon hockey will never be gone. Although better hidden and more severe reprimands, It's there.
Guys are just getting trickier about it.

Interesting. This would seem to imply that you do not consider fighting a part of the game. I thought you held a different position.

Highlights on the pitch from a couple of ex-Canucks:

Soccer Sedinery

After some cheeky Sedinery in the box, Dank sends Hank in alone... AND he still can't score... on a girl and into a much larger net. Good to see some things never change.

Starts at 1:19

Henrik does get another assist though.
Try to focus on 1 year from now...

Both are good at all aspects of the game. Both are not good at fighting. Therefore, fighting is not an aspect of the game (otherwise, they would be good at it, as per statement 1).

Clear?

Yeah but if he can scrap - even better - ala Tom Wilson doing the dirty work as you said but he's also a deterrent to help the Ovie line win a Championship, as there are a shit load of dirty mother fuckers trying to injure star players.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

No I didn't mean fighting isn't a part of the game. I would love to see Tom Wilson in a Canucks uniform. I meant an asshole doesnt have to be a great fighter. Kesler actually fought Iginla . Didn't win the fight but both ended in the penalty box and the Canucks went on to win the game. Tiger Williams has the NHL record for fighting majors but really wasn't a great fighter. He was a supreme asshole. His fights normally were short and ended up with Tiger covering up or turning turtle. He was fantastic at irritating the opposition.
PS.. for those that think tough play and fighting are no longer needed ... I guess you don't watch the playoffs. The toughest physical team usually wins..Bruins over Canucks... Capitals over Vegas.. etc.

I didn't think you meant that, but it follows from what you said (see explanation to Rats).

I think your statement was sort of an analogy to a Freudian slip, whereby you subconsciously sorted the peculiar combative sport of "rink-boxing" into a different category from skating, passing, shooting, checking, and even agitating. But I only point that out for amusement's sake and don't want to debate the matter, so let's just say you put it in a unique category because, as you explained, it's effect on the game depends less on the outcome of the contest than the choice of opponent.
