That's the easy answer from people who refuse to acknowledge what players are saying, what people who have lived to play competitive hockey which included fighting. It's a lame and weak argument in trying to convince people that fighting has no other purpose than entertainment, rebuffing those who know and say that it has the same effect as a goal, a good hit, a great defensive play or a great save, which is to change the momentum of a game.
