Maybe they should put pads on the boards so no one gets hurt? And maybe they should play the games at 3 in the afternoon everyday so the players can get a good night sleep after the games. Its hockey. Cheapshots, fights, etc have been in the sport (and every other sport) since its inception. I don't want to see anyone on the Flyers get hurt from a cheapshot or a fight, but if someone cheapshots a Flyer I want to see a line brawl and if a Flyer cheapshots someone else I want to see the same thing. The fighting and physical nature of the sport is one of the main reasons I love it. And fighting and line brawls is not going to prevent this team (or any team) from winning a Cup.
Accidents happen. They're not premeditated.
