I never said I didn't like it, but it has to serve a purpose other than just entertaining the fans. If your defenseman gets a 5 min fighting penalty that hurts your defense overall because 5 D have to play more minutes. I'd much rather see Martin fight over Carkner. I don't see Carkner getting much icetime in the playoffs. Those penalties can kill you in a short series.
