Why does this feel like someone standing on a street corner with a megaphone?

How do you know? It depends on the types of violence, too. I've seen plenty (read: dozens) of games where violence is rampant throughout the game, a brawl breaks out, and nothing comes of it after. It calms right down.

You can definitely gain respect by dropping the gloves. If you slash a guy, hurt him, he goes down, and you face up in a fight, you'll gain more respect than if you skate away laughing. Respect is a common factor amongst heavyweights in hockey.

BTW, if leagues encouraged it, why do they give five-minute penalties?
