    Does suck that there isn't as much fighting, I will agree there. They are actually talking of banning it from the game altogether. Apparently they think the fans want it that way. Crazy talk if you ask me.

    If they take fighting out, the dirty penalties are going to go up. And guys are going to get hurt. I like hockey for a lot of reasons, few things in sports cause me to cheer more than a Thorton/Cheechoo power play. But I love me a good fight. There's something about 2 guys on skates throwing haymakers at each other .

    I'll say one thing they definitely need to eliminate completely is the hitting from behind. It seems like it is happening a lot lately, and I just don't understand why the NHL continues to tolerate it.

    Maybe I’m just an old school fan but the fights today just don’t have the same punch (Pun intended)

    I remember the glory days of the Kings, way before Gretzky showed up. I remember people trying to give away tickets outside the forum because they couldn’t scalp them. I remember the cheep beer and the shouts of “TIGER…. TIGER….TIGER”
