I personally think that the headshots are the bigger issue because it really shows the lack of respect that players have for each other. Fighting is what helps keep some of these cheapshot artists honest, but the fact that the GMs don't want to crack down on these guys is mind-boggling.
Absolutely, I don't see how that's going to rid the game of hockey from fighting. It's such a half assed effort. I'd love to hear a candid interview with Gretzky about the subject (fighting), as he had Dave Semenco to keep the other teams honest, and later had McSorely.
