This year is on pace to be the first with the team fighting major lead falling below the 74-75 and 75-76 levels ... still over double the number of fights that teams had pre-67 expansion. Even in 1999, only one player had 30 fights.
Yeah, most fights in a season ha dropped a ton.

1997: Paul Laus An NHL-record 39 fights
1998: Krzysztof "The Polish Hammer" Oliwa 34 fights
2002: Peter Worrell 33 fights
2006: Brian McGrattan 19 fights
2010: Zenon Konopka 33 fights
2011: George Parros 27 Fights
2012: Shawn Thornton and Brandon Prust, 19 fights so far

It seems to go in cycles.
