So if they don't HAVE to fight, what's the difference if they're limited to 10 fights per year? If 90% of punches aren't landed, why bother in the first place?
Personally, I'm not a big fan of fights, but I do agree that they have their place in the game. What I'm happy about is that the goon who provides nothing but fighting is going the way of the dinosaur, and he's being replaced by a guy who can play the game and drop the gloves when necessary. That should be a huge plus to fans of the OHL.
