I think he is 100% spot on here, he agrees that fighting has a part in hockey but that fights like this should not.

The Simmonds fight in Boston last year is fine, defending a teammate in the heat of the moment, that is when fighting is expected and acceptable.

The two worst players on each team having what is surely a premeditated fight in a 4-0 game serves zero purpose and eventually something really bad is going to happen, and already has happened at lower levels.
