from the Midland Daily News,
He says the physical aspect of the game has been taken away by new rule changes.
“I don’t like it,” Kocur said. “I don’t like that they’ve taken the toughness out of the game. There’s no accountability on the ice anymore. For some reason, they feel that fighting shouldn’t be part of a nationally televised sport. That’s their choice.
“Everyone goes to NASCAR races to watch the crashes. They go to hockey games to watch the fighting. They’ve taken that away and attendance is down. I think a lot of people are disappointed in the style of the game.”
