The big red box on the middle right hand side.
"It's the toughest job in hockey and I've got so much respect for guys that do that for a living," Shanahan said. "But I'm also getting worried for them. Because it's not like it used to be, where there is a winner and a loser.
"More often than not there's a winner and then there's a guy who's been beaten up badly, or hurt. I hate to see that. I hated to see Fedoruk the other day." -shanny
the unfortunate thing about shanahan's comments - and i really respect him - but SINCE fighting is allowed in this sport the end result may usually be a guy getting beaten up and hurt badly... NEVER have i seen a fight where both guys were no swinging to hurt the other, eventually those haymakers land and faces get busted and etc..... PUT AN END TO FIGHTING, PLEASE!
