Pretty much.
Modern hockey is a pale imitation of what it once was.

Those following the train of the studies (not saying that's necessarily anyone here, but more the studiers and the groups pushing these initiatives) should be advocating for non-contact sport.

Once this question is answered, an honest debate with knowledge of the end games can take place.
What an excellent point - and if I may say its a point that could be applied to many many social issues today. Sadly I don't think the pc crowd is interested in honest debate. Much easier to boil the frog slowly.
