There is always going to be runts running around. But the Averys and the Otts and the Lapierres would be even worse in the NHL without the threat of fighting. I liken it to fighting being sort of a disciplinary action doled out to the ones misbehaving. Some times you need to do it, other times the threat of it is enough. Taking fighting out of the game is like stripping more and more rights from a parent on how to raise their child.

And that thing that happened the other day with Moen, yeah, the linesmen were pansies by doing that. Let the grown men settle their own score.
