A couple of examples of blowback for typical liberal do-goodery. The second and third order effects of using rules to cramp down on minor problems just creates even bigger ones.
Yea i've said this from the start, the instigator create staged fighting. Also I noticed how the ref are harder on stopping fights when it happens on the spur of the moment(like it should be) so it's almost as if the NHL prefers the staged fights.
