Kukla's Korner Hockey

Lay Down The Law

from Adam Ptoteau of the Hockey News at the Globe and Mail,

That’s why the NHL still hasn’t gone far enough in the statement it makes about fighting. That’s why we still see sideshow acts such as the one that took place at the Air Canada Centre Saturday night, featuring Rangers tough guy Colton Orr and Toronto’s designated enforcer Wade Belak.
Five-minute punishments obviously don’t deter players from indulging impulses they easily ignore come playoff or international tournament time. But suspend an NHLer for a game or two, or eight, or 20, or put a serious-type dent in his bank account the way Stern likes to do, and maybe then he’ll discover other avenues by which to release his frustrations.
