You could easily have fewer fights, but I was referring to the comment that, in 20 years, fighting will be gone from the game completely. I don't believe that'll ever happen due to the smaller nature of the playing surface, the high speeds, and the constant contact.

Mind backing this argument up? I'm curious.

While I realize goals and big saves get the crowds on their feet, a good fight between two heavyweights can have a tremendous effect on both the crowd and the teams. Never underestimate that.
