Bits: Defining NHL Fighting with the Pulp Fiction Amsterdam Speech

We'll get to the Pulp Fiction speech, which was lifted from comments yesterday, at the bottom of this post. But first enjoy some recent Islanders/hockey reading from the past few days:

Fully or Vaguely Islanders-Related

We haven't talked the non-news with the non-arena for a few days, but in brief:

Fighting Described by Pulp Fiction

Okay, this is already my favorite LHH comment of the week, courtesy of 4PeatSake. How vividly I can hear Travolta and Jackson going back and forth here:

Fighting, Kinda Like Hash in Amsterdam

Jules: Okay, now, tell me about the hash bars NHL.
Vincent: So what you want to know?
Jules: Well, hash fighting is legal there, right?
Vincent: Yeah, it’s legal, but it ain’t a hundred percent legal. I mean, you can’t walk into a restaurant, roll a joint, and start puffin’ away revel in it publicly. They want you to smoke enjoy fighting in your home or certain designated places.
Jules: Those are hash bars arenas in Pittsburgh?
Vincent: Breaks down like this, okay: it’s legal to buy engage in it, it’s legal to own encourage it, and if you’re the proprietor of a hash bar a Pittsburgh hockey club, it’s legal to sell build your lineup around it. It’s illegal to carry partake in for lower ranking teams, but that doesn’t really matter ‘cause get a load of this, all right; if you get stopped by the cops refs in Amsterdam Pittsburgh, it’s illegal frowned upon for them to search you penalize the home team. I mean, that’s a right the cops lowly players in Amsterdam Uniondale don’t have.
Jules: [laughing] Oh, man. I’m going, that’s all there is to it. I’m [Cooke]ing going.

Many thanks to 4PeatSake for the laugh.
