And its not that fighting is all there is to it. But if you have a "mutant" who will take liberties and you won't do anything about it...that's bad for a lot of reasons.
EDIT - OK, its not the only reason fans are grumbling. I should have said that better.
MacDermid is still there to fill Thornton's role, and guys like Scott and Orr aren't on the ice often enough to take substantial liberties. It's really a non-issue IMO.
