& I Want A Lot More Ice Behind The Net

There is no way this poor kid should have died. Hockey is, IMHO, the best of sports, but with this stupid cleaving to fighting as a fundamental aspect of hockey, it is diminished. Diminished to the point of irrelevancy. Taking your helmet off before fighting ought not be the reason for a suspension, the act of fighting itself should be the catalyst for the suspension. & if the player fights within a week of getting back on the ice, it's a 3 game suspension, & on & on. I want to watch hockey like I did back in the day at the Coliseum in Madison, WI, college hockey games that rarely had a fight, but had lots of great hockey.
