i am not anti fighting.

hockey is the only sport, besides those that are set up to be fights (like boxing or mma), that allows fighting during the game. if that is all people wanted to see, basketball, soccer, baseball, golf, tennis, volleyball, etc would have no attendance.

teams attendance, and popularity are linked to their success in winning games and having successful seasons. you have provided no facts to support that more "goon" style hockey is what is needed to win games.
