The day that the NHL is dumb enough to remove fighting from NHL hockey is the day that many hardcore fans who have been fans of this sport for years and years will drop the game, and I'm one of them.
I doubt it. People use those claims because they have no better arguments as to why fighting belongs in hockey more than any other sport. The claims are weak and outlandish. It's baseless fear mongering.

People still turn out to watch Olympic and international hockey. There are no more cheapshots there than their currently are in the nhl (which probably has to do with stricter and clearer sanctions which are more strongly enforced) and isn't any less exciting to watch.
