Fighting Question?

Does anyone else think players should take off their helmets before they fight? I've seen so many weak fights this year with players just slapping each others helmets and visors. What exactly does that accomplish?

They probably should for their own benefit aka hand injuries. A good case was the Schenn-Bernier waltz tonight. Both wear visors so theres not much chance of anything other than hands getting injured.

I'd rather see guys go down with hand injuries than go down with a head injury because they hit the ice badly.

Most guys with visors drop the lids. Sometimes there isn't time to lose the lids.

worse is when a guy with a visor picks a fight with a guy without a visor and doesn't take it off

Kaleta should get props for stepping WAY out of his weight class there.
