I'm really split on this issue. As most hockey fans, I'm excited whenever I see a hockey fight. But on the other hand, seeing all the consequences it does to the brain, and I have to ask myself if it's really necessary. Unlike MMA or boxing, hockey would still be played and would still be exciting without the fights.

In the end, it should be an NHLPA decision. If the players want the fights, agree that they can get punched, knowing all the consequences it can have on the quality of life, then who am I to say it doesn't belong in the sport? But I'm curious about the results a secret vote on this issue would get among players.

Since I never received a punch from a 6'6" guy on a NHL rink, I'll also surely won't defend fighting blindly as if it was just harmless fun. I love the show, but those doing the show should be the only ones to have a say in this.
