CBC/NHLPA Players Poll:

Should fighting be banished from the NHL?
No: 98%
Yes: 2%

(I believe this was conducted amongst this years all stars)

I think most fans enjoy fighting, and I think it adds a dimension to our sport that others lack. That said, I think the staged fighting is pointless, and I think those will eventually cease to exist. On the other hand, spontaneous, naturally occurring fights, that are sparked by in-the-moment passion, like what we saw between Datsyuk and Perry, are meaningful, and will have there place in the game for a long, long time.
