One guy gets knocked out and this is what happens.... go watch soccer or baseball if you dont like fighting.
Players like Kaleta and Marchand (and pretty much every other pest) have been in multiple fights and they still play the game the same way that they always have. Clearly fights aren't keeping them accountable.

Matt Cooke didn't change his game until he started getting suspended for every little thing he did.

Suspensions do a better job of keeping players accountable than fighting.
