All Bill Daly (On Fighting)

from Craig Custance of EPN,

WHAT WOULD NHL LOOK LIKE IF FIGHTING DISAPPEARED?

I'm not sure I can even envision the premise. I'm not sure, regardless of what rule changes may over time be made, I'm not sure if fighting is ever eliminated from the game. I think fighting will continue to be part of the game regardless of what your rules are and it is parts of other games as well. 

I really can't envision it from that perspective but I'm also not in a position [to] really hypothesize it. It's something that's been part of the game for a long time. Regardless of what our rules are, it's going to remain part of the game in some form or fashion. It's not a question that's easy to answer. 

HOW WOULD FANS RESPOND? DO YOU POLL?

Do you know how difficult it would be to take fighting out of the game? I mean, once it gets done in the nhl, then there’s like.. the KHL, minor leagues, high schools etc… Fighting IS apart of the game, you can’t really separate them. And what’s more, hockey is a grinding type of sport where emotions run higher (at least in my opinion) than football or basketball etc… I think you’re still going to get fights even if it is abolished.
