It just seems to get worse and worse every year to the point where it's now becoming a regular part of the junior game as well.

Turtling used to not mean you weren't still gonna get hit. It simply meant you weren't like to get hit in the face and go to the hospital.

The way things are going in the next few years you're gonna see guys looking for timeouts during a fight. It's getting like old school pro wrestling for pete's sake.
Honestly I've only seen about 2 players turtle in the past 2 years and thats in about 90 or so games. 1 of those was in the playoffs when his team was down and he was clearly going for the PP. I don't think it's as bad (yet) as you think it might be.
