I agree, the emotion should be shown out on the field of play. Although, I still feel the rule is unnecessary and a waste of space in the rule book. And the league has done everything in its power to take plenty of emotion out of the game as well.
This league does need some characters just like any other league, in order to bring some attention to it. But anytime someone steps out of line a little bit a new rule is made, or a suspension is handed down. Like the hysteria when Avery went a little out of the box in his screening of Brodeur. Let's get serious here. Was it really necessary to rewrite the rule book the next day to address this DIRE issue. Come on.
Wake up NHL. Fix the boring product on the ice and stop taking the emotion and passion and chracter out of the game.
