Seriously, anyone notice how many ex-enforcers there are in the media landscape compared to other types of players? Methinks this is no stranger to why the notion that it has hockey value persists.
Yeah that's if we turn the other cheek in pretend that the 98% of nhl players who voted for fighting to stay were all fighters, unfortunately for you, that wasn't the case.

I'd much rather take my opinion from someone who has never played the game.
