Interesting way to eliminate fighting:

Grandfather in visors
2 minute visor instigator
2 minute helmet removal infraction

Looks like fighting will be gone in 10 years.

Not that it's a bad thing.

With the mandatory visor, next generation will have double minor instigators with triple minor potential.

How many more years til there's an automatic suspension for being in a fight? Go **** yourself NHL. Hopefully the BOG shoots it down but I doubt that'll happen. The Bubble Wrap Society wins again.

If true, this has to be the dumbest idea since the glow puck.
They are obviously protecting themselves from further legal issues like the one the Boogey man's loved ones are looking at. I'm surprised they didn't follow the OHL's lead of giving an extra 2 minutes for purposely removing the other guy's bucket during the fight as well as for taking them off before.

So...

1) Penalize players for removing their helmets when fighting.

I'm confused...so does this mean they can't remove their helmets while they are squaring off ready to go anymore??? Or does this just mean that there is to be no helmet removal during the actual fight itself???

Either way, this is ****ing stupid. Who wants to potentially break their knuckles or **** up their hand punching somebody with a helmet on??? Not to mention your knuckles would get messed up pretty fast I would think.

So basically they want to prevent guys from squaring up and taking their helmets off prior to fighting, hoping to prevent injuries that way.

I wonder if they got this idea from watching the AHL, where mandatory visors have made ditching helmets pretty much an after thought when fighting. I'd be curious to see if the AHL has seen an increase in head injuries from this.

So they want to grandfather visors in and not allow anyone wearing a visor to fight without receiving an extra penalty (for the visor or taking the helmet off)...

I don't like this one bit. There was nothing more badass than watching Thornton and Benn throw their helmets off for a showdown.

With that said, I understand the necessity of it but truly hope they don't eliminate fighting.

The fact that people seem more worried about the fact that their could be less fighting than the health of the players worries me.

That's four times too many. If you had any clue how serious a concussion is, you'd know that. I can't argue against someone who doesn't know what he's talking about, so I'll stop here.

Because they make millions of dollars.
Because they know the risks.
Because tradition.
Because Bettman wants to turn hockey into basketball on ice.

Did I do it right?

Someone should make a removable visor.

Really? We're talking about guys who play a sport that often has serious repercussions for professional's long term health, that's part of why they get paid such obscene amounts of money to play a game. It only seems normal that people would be more focused on the entertainment value of the league than these multi-millionaire's long term health.

Which means they are slowly eradicating fighting.

Sounds like they are trying to get fighting to go away without banning it and having all of us up in arms.

Personally, I want one for 2 consecutive icings to be a delay of game. Shady way to get your players a chance to catch their breath.
