Fighting Down 42%

from the CP via TSN,
The message has been clear for hulking Ottawa Senators forward Brian McGrattan since the first day of training camp. If he wants to play in the NHL, he's going to have do more than just throw his fists. "If you only fight, there isn't a job anymore," McGrattan said Monday from Ottawa. "I have to work for my ice time and prove myself in other areas. "Our team is a fast team, a good-skating team. If you're not sharp in those areas, you're not going to play." Fighting in the new-look NHL has dropped 42 per cent since 2003-04, the last time the league had a season.
