And now with the new fighting rules the OHL put in (they're usually the first drastic rule changers), hockey is now officially moving towards a position where you need to be able to actually play.
Hockey's been going in that direction for the better part of a decade, now. We're only just noticing it now. If the league could have properly developed hockey enforcers rather than goons, we'd be talking a different game because coaches wouldn't be scared to dress these guys in the playoffs (which where a player's value is ultimately determined).
