Be well, Hoss.

Directly after the internet exploded about the Torres hit, there started to be some response from self-styled hockey intelligentsia that amounted to "Clean hit. This is hockey. It's always been violent. If you're just getting that now you're an idiot." After restraining myself from throwing the old laptop out the window, I discussed this with a friend. What we came up with was that "hockey has always been violent" is not a proper or sufficient response to the opinion that hockey could stand to see a little less of this particular kind of violence, and it's definitely not an argument against taking steps to condemn or punish it. Get well soon, Marian Hossa.
