How many players have Lucic or Thornton seriously injured in fights? And how many fights do you see Lars Eller partaking in in his career?

99% of fights end up with two guys in the box with maybe a couple of swollen fists and one with a bruised ego. That's not where injuries come from. They come from routine plays that happen to result in injury or cheap shots.

And considering the team that has you soiling yourself over their toughness leads the league in guys who will be donating their brains to science after they die, it's pretty safe to say you can't deter a guy from decapitating one of your teammates by hugging him for 30 seconds.
