    First, you're incorrect. And please stop trying to be a pundit about this. With all due respect:

    Minor hockey in Canada and the US allows fighting, sir, in every notable league and with penalty.
    Fighting is allowed, with penalty, in Juniors and Major Juniors.
    Fighting is allowed in the NHL.

    And that, sir, is the gold standard for Ice Hockey.

    The gold standard for ice hockey is not friendly Olympic games, not International play where Euros have hardly played a game with hitting and never one with fighting. Not College where the players are assumed to be academes first, athletes second. The best hockey in the world is played in Juniors and the NHL. This matter is closed.

    Please educate yourself with regard to which leagues have the best hockey and put players to the NHL. And while you're at it, YOU try and fight on a 1" long, 1/8th inch wide piece of steel on ice.


    And just to run salt in your poorly informed wounds, read this, it seems your idea of leagues 'moving forward' is incorrect, seeing as the best league in Europe did this:

    KHL legalizes and regulates fighting

    The KHL just released the set of rules for the 2010-11 season, and it contains an interesting part, how the KHL will regulate fights. Until the 2009-10 season it just followed the IIHF rules, which had a five minutes major plus game misconduct for any fight. But from the next season it's going to change.
    All that follows is coming from the official KHL rulebook, which can be found here (Russian only).

    a) the player or goalie who participates in the fight can get a minor, double minor or major penalty according to the player's activity during the fight itself

    Apology accepted. This is the last word I will have on the matter.


    Aside from your awesome fit of cluelessness regarding hockey-- and I'm sure you're a really nice guy otherwise and I'll be happy to stand a pint with you next time I'm out in Wyoming-- here's more Baja awesomeness:


    Can you count the number of broken collarbones saved in this clip:

    Please go start a Fucking hockey thread, so no one can read it just like no one gives a shit about hockey.

    All due respect to The Rocket, definitely in my top 5, but I'd take Beliveau before him.

    And the greatest hockey player of all of all time is Number 4, Bobby Orr.

    Now something awesome. A Google Earth screen grab of my back yard.
