Hockey arenas house violence It would be gratifying to believe that at the very least, the New York Islanders hockey player/thug, Chris Simon, who waged a vicious assault against an opponent would be permanently banned from the sport. One who would believe that, though, would be setting aside the fact that in this sport, the viciousness of the game and the possibility that blood will be spilled on the ice is part of the thrill for voyeuristic crowds. Consequently, even if one engages in an attack that could easily paralyze or kill the victim, the perpetrator will ultimately be forgiven, as he is seen as having acted "in the heat of the moment."

Washington goalie Craig Billington will arrive three hours early for tonight's NHL game, as he has for the last 15 years. The fact that he is the starting goalie for the Southeast Division champion Capitals in their opener won't change a thing. "I've been a starter and a backup," Billington said. "I've split games. I've been an All-Star. I've been bought out of a contract. And I've had no job at all. It's better than having been an All-Star every year of my career. There have been so many situations in my life, and I've learned from all of them.
