The Habs should declare a strict rejection of this league policy and expect any opposition player who attacks with fists be assessed a 2 min instigator, a 5 for fighting, a game misconduct and a review for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Fighting is way up this season and that sucks. So yeah, I vote "No."
Oh man, more whining about how Hockey has always traditionally been played. Let's get that basketball man Buttman in so that he can cater to wishy washy "fans" some more and keep changing our game. Sorry, but after the home team scoring, nothing gets more fans out of their seats than a HW scrap. Or any scrap really.

This game used to be policed by men, not these sorry penalty and special teams fests we see every game now for ticky tack calls like hooking and invisible moments of interference and such. That's BS hockey.
