Troglodyte in Canada

Eavesdropping on a conversation among the big brains of ice hockey is a little like a day trip to prehistoric times to hang with the troglodytes.

In our latest visit, we find the trogs in a bit of an uproar. One of their own has suggested they might want to consider banning fighting from the game.

Wow, I wonder what that guy's reaction would be if Stephen Brunt called American hockey fans ignoramuses?

Careful with the stereotypes...He might evoke the wrath of the Geico cavemen! :)

I'm overcome with just how terrible the thinking is on both sides of this debate...

What does the "Bertuzzi incident" have to do with fighting?

I'm open to see proof that fighting does or doesn't deter Bertuzzi-type incidents, but my fear is the real agenda here is to make hockey into soccer.

Also, I'm not sure why the size of players increasing matters as long as the average also increases. Doesn't that just mean everyone on average is bigger?

IANAD(octor), but regarding Rick's second question, I don't think that a player's size has any impact on his head's ability to absorb a punch.

So a punch in the face from a 220 pound man is going to do more damage than a punch in the face from a 180 pound man regardless of the size of the guy whose face is being punched.
