Simple- Remove The Instigator

from Al Strachan at Fox Sports,

The game is such these days that a lot of players don’t care whether there’s a puck on the ice or not
They’re just out there to run other players. And they’re causing injuries.
In an earlier era, those players would have been held accountable. But with the instigator rule, and the low-scoring games that put a premium on power plays, they’re left alone. If the league scraps the instigator rule and keeps the fighters, those guys would think twice. And there would be fewer injuries.
In the long run, fighting doesn’t cause injuries; it prevents them.
