What I said was if you're wearing a visor and you're going for safety, OK. But don't go around being a tough guy.

Anybody who says they don't like fighting in the NHL have to be out of their minds.

You're going to say 'what about other kids?' They get hurt in other sports but I think it would have to be hockey and I know at least five or six other guys that it would just help the families so much.

You cannot do hazing. If you're stupid enough to do hazing now ... you'll pay the price.

And you can bet, ... fans will watch every minute of them.

I never, ever said 'don't wear a visor,'.

I think the people, the working-man people, made a statement here, that you don't have to be a college graduate to be a good Canadian.

Everybody loves fights, ... The fans love it.

If Saddam Hussein put up 1,000 missiles at our country, who would you go to for help? The Russians or the U.S.? Don't do it again.
