You ever think about the guys who are only in the league because they can fight, and hit? Fighting is based on the premise that hockey is a violent game, so the players took it upon themselves to provide a disincentive for cheapshots, by having to pay for your actions in a way. Also, what makes skill players fun to watch, is that in the midst of all the checking they can work dangle through defenders and score goals. Removing the fighting in hockey will lead to less and less body play, its just going to be a skills competition out there. Go watch the swedish league or something.
