No GM Talk To Eliminate Fighting

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

There is a perception that there’s a movement within the game to curb or eliminate fighting from the NHL.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Such talk is purely media driven, which is confirmed by several GMs around the league.

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly, Oilers GM Steve Tambellini and even Detroit GM Ken Holland, who hasn’t employed a tough guy in years, all insist they have no desire to see fighting addressed at the upcoming GM meetings next month.

What’s more, they are not aware of any GM who has any interest in doing so.
