Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Two seasons ago, in the aftermath of the fight in which Orr broke Todd Fedoruk’s face with a devastating punch, NHL VP Colin Campbell suggested the time had come for the league to at least investigate the possibility of eliminating fighting from the game.
Campbell was ahead of his time. For the time has come today for the NHL not only to investigate the possibility, the time has come for the NHL to abolish fighting. It’s simply too dangerous.
Watching heavyweight fights such as the one in Tampa on Wednesday between the Rangers’ Orr and Lightning’s David Koci has become the equivalent to viewing the aftermath of automobile accidents on the Interstate. They’re impossible to look at without becoming queasy.
