Kukla's Korner Hockey

It will be yet another example of how the NHL, which clearly lacks faith in its game’s ability to be mainstream, bends over backward to retain fighting. Its rule book is dotted with language that restricts it, yet allows it. Now the Lords of the Boards will make room for an “Emery Rule,” when the easiest, cleanest, and smartest thing to do would be simply to get rid of fighting outright.
Rather than just get to the right answer, the NHL dithers away by adding layers of rightness, displaying both a lack of faith in its game’s marketability and, most of all, a void in vision and leadership.
