Should USHL/NAHL go college rules on fighting?

Hey guys,

Just heard that USHL/NAHL is going with a major + misconduct (10 mins) for fighting starting next season after the seizure injury.

Wouldn't it be a good idea for them to go to college rules on fighting since US/NAHL are essentially NCAA feeder leagues? I think the rule is game misconduct + one game. That rule will still allow for some fights in retaliation for blatant cheapshots and but it will staged fighting/enforcer sideshow. Obviously the rule should exempt a player who is challenged by an instigator in order to throw a skilled player out of the game.

Honestly I find college hockey cleaner than the NHL with less dirty hits even though they penalize fighting more severely.
