How is the new fighting rule working?

So we've hit the 119 game mark in the OHL and fights are down by 32.1 % as opposed to last year. Now if a player wallpapers another cleanly and has to respond for the clean hit, it will not count against his fight totals. This being said almost 27 per cent of all fights have involved an instigator penalty this season, this would indicate that Branch and the "O" are serious about curtailing this epidemic of answering clean bodychecks. So now we are starting to see that this can be done effectively, so when should the other leagues decide to implement this system and should the AHL and NHL consider to adopt this philosophy?

let's discuss....and please keep it clean and flame ********.
