I always find it interesting when those who want to eradicate fighting bring up the NFL as an agressive sport that doesn't need fighters to police themselves. They seem to forget that while the body contact is similar, hockey players are given a wooden (nay aluminum or graphite) spear and then effectively have blades strapped to their feet.
I think the NHL dropped the ball with the whole Bertuzzi situation. They should of made it very clear to the media that what Bertuzzi did was not part of the 'honor code' or part of what we believe fighting to be all about. Instead it was simply a gutless cheap shot, just like any other gutless cheapshot in any other sport
