Don't get it, never have, never will. It's like arguing with Penn St. fans and alumni.
Nobody forces anyone to fight, it's just a part of the NHL. If Boogaard wanted to stop making millions of dollars as a pro athlete and join construction, he was entitled to. Something tells me that would make him more depressed.

Rypien loved talking about fighting, was a big MMA fan, and the only time I ever saw him happy were interviews between periods or after games he scored goals or fought someone much bigger than him and won.

Wade Belak's death was an accident according to his family. If you must know, look up auto-asphyxiation.
