I find it interesting that Barry speaks about “a code”. Obviously there are things we are taught that we should not do will playing hockey, hitting another player in the head with your stick (or at all), biting… many things.
I’ve been thinking a little bit about this “code”. Mr Don Cherry often refers to it. I may write a few of my ideas on what I see. Something that got me thinking was watching the game on Saturday night and seeing that one incident where Plekanec took Colton Orr’s stick away from him… and seconds later Orr takes a run at him.
I will elaborate when I gather my thoughts.
