Why does this feel like someone standing on a street corner with a megaphone?
Fighting only increases the violence, it doesn't reduce it.
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't demand or gain respect from your opponent by punching him in the head.
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?
