I'm not a lawyer but I think if it were argued that the NHL is purposely including bare knuckle fighting (illegal in most jurisdictions) in its product then a judge could rule that these fights have to be blacked out on TV, or the games can only be shown after a certain hour at night etc.
Those are very interesting thoughts! Thanks for posting them.
