I figured this would be your stance, the 2minute minor instead of a major is a definite positive. I've already stated why. It's not as simple as 5>2 like you seem to portray. I'm really starting to wonder about a few of you. Seriously, if you can't see why it's a better move, I can't help you.

Sure it's a GREAT move...

major ? (for head shot) get one and you're out of the game...

minor ? yeah, a minor, like high-stick, tripping, interference...



as for your help, never asked.

I believe he's possibly referencing the whole giving refs discretion thing. How if they start calling a 5 min penalty as a 2 because they felt like it that isn't progress it's a step back.

You should of, because apparently you still don't get it. It would appear that you're out of touch.

Francois Gagnon just called for a fighting ban on RDS. I guess that's the road RDS is taking with this. I wish though they would put all the non-fighting personalities on one show and the others on one another so I could stop watching the whiners and let us enjoy the show.

I dont care what others feel about our team, whats concerning is our own fans that think we're somehow intimidated. It's pathetic.
I want us to strike back and be men, be the Montreal Canadiens, not women figure skating. Act like warriors and give us rivalries worth watching.

The NHL is not the World championship. I think you prefer the NHL to go in the direction of European hockey, I want more battles and the nerds in the press to let go of their thinking that it should become something that doesn't hurt their little hearts.

Agreed, but I don't think shanny will hold back. All player will be treated equal until they develop a trend.

I don't want equality, I like the double standard. I'm glad Cammydidnt get 4 games last year for his antic. Stars are what make the NHL, especiallyto the casual fans, I like bottom pairing guys getting stiffer penalties.

Suppose the offender is a physically imposing man and the Habs have no one who could stand up to him. What should they do then? Sacrifice someone in a futile attempt at revenge? Swing a stick at his head or spear him in the groin? Sandbag a skilled and clean player from the opposing team? I'd like to hear some responses that emanate from the cerebral cortex rather than the limbic system.

This is what I would recommend. You do it once to another teams star player and every other team will back off imo. Worth the 5-10 game suspension.

Do you think other teams 4thliners want to be the reason, their star is out?

There is a reason tit for tat is optimal game strategy.

Shanny I dont know, but there's a few people that might "remind" him the Pronger or Chara of this world are better on the ice than off...

like usual.

Fighting is dumb, but I have nothing against it if its to protect your key players from dirty hits or send a message. The problem is deeper than that, they have to change how they handle suspensions then players will think twice before trying to injure another player. Its dumb but right now its part of the game and I dont see it changing tomorow. I never liked "Heavy weights" who fight just for the crowd, this, I think, is dumb.

My opinion, ensure that dirty players have examplary suspensions and it will reduce the number of fights.

Fighting is good as long as it's actual fighters/enforcers that are doing it not others who think they can fight and end up breaking their bones... or slipping on waffles
