I say they decrease the penalty for fighting to 2 minutes, to help the
star players who want to fight
but also don't want to hurt their ice time.
pretty sure that's an oxymoron. There are very few star players that also want to fight on a regular basis. They know
they are star players, and it certainly ain't for fighting.
There is no problem with the 5 minute major penalty for fighting.
