I understand you might be romanticizing the old days a little but Twist was not a good player and there were lots of "goons" back then. You could argue even more than now.

There are still scores of talented players who can/will fight in this league these days.

I think the 6'5" 230 lbs tough guy will go the way of the dodo but teams and players will adapt. All it takes is a Milan Lucic to spark an arms race.

It's unfortunate this happens every time there is a bad KO but if you don't like it, change the channel for 30 secs or a minute and save yourself.

Also kudos to Maplehawk for his post, agree 100%.
I don't recall a fight happening in the playoffs in a very long time. Refresh my memory please, also it's an automatic game misconduct, which means the NHL doesn't want fighting in the post season.

Olympic hockey only sucks when your team doesn't win anything. How you can say an event that has the best players in the world playing in it sucks is beyond me.

That is the dumbest thing I have ever read on here.
