from John Buccigross at ESPN,
With that in mind, if the NHL paid me a large consulting fee to be a part of an NHL think tank, where ideas are thrown around in an attempt to enhance the game and, perhaps, grow it, I would construct the following arguments on fighting, complete with devil’s advocate responses (D.A.).
1. The presence of possible fighting deters cheap hits and dangerous stick play.
Devil’s Advocate: Mandate full-facial protection, like the NFL. Eye injuries would virtually disappear and dental premiums would probably plummet; or severely penalize stick and head infractions to the point where players can’t afford to purposely cross the line. The price would be huge.
