The second thing was a prediction that the time is coming where the players were going to stand up and demand for a ban on fighting.
That second part was funny, because they were claiming that about a month after the players poll came out... The one where 98% of players said they were in support of fighting.
They (ESPN anchors and analysts) also went on a rant about it a month ago after the AHL brawl happened.
PTI is one of the few ESPN programs that consistently talks about hockey and while their opinions for the most part conform to typical ESPN doctrine on hockey they're no worse than some full time hockey analysts.
Besides, Kornheiser is a baseball/football guy, not a basketball. Wilbon is a basketball guy but he's actually a big Chicago fan. Goes to quite a few Blackhawks games (When he's not working either). They're not good hockey analysts but it's far worse when ESPN's other guys talk about it.
I hate ESPN but PTI I'll watch.
