Well, the old saying, if you can't play, then talk about playing. Media have jobs because they make talking points happen.

Toughness is more than just participating in a staged fight. To me, toughness is going into the corners and scrapping for possession, muscling yourself in front of the crease for positioning, finishing checks...and that's just the physicial piece of it. Toughness is also adapting to a strategy in-game, fighting when you're a man down to obtain a great short-handed chance the other way.

Did losing that ONE fight take away all those other things?

I am simply baffled at how some people think we need to completely change a system that has worked well and that is generally respected league wide after the result of one regular season loss.

One game does not a disturbing trend make.
