When Yzerman was being protected by these players did he know then what he knows now?
Maybe the new revelations about concussions in sport have changed his mind.
Maybe now that he is a dad his mind has changed.
None of you changed your mind after thinking one way for 20+ years, then discovered/learned something you previously were unaware of?
Do you think maybe the research and studies down on CTE and concussions have changed his mind?
For instance players used to smoke butts in the locker room before and after periods, should they still be doing it?
No because they realized the impact it has on their breathing and abilities, so players for the most part stopped smoking, and all of them (due to laws) no longer smoke in the locker room.
Also can we stop using the Blood feud as evidence we need to keep fighting, when was the last time a rivalry was that strong and had that much bad blood.
No fight in the past 15 years has as much reason to be had as those fights.
IF every fight in the NHL was in the same vein as the ones between the Wings and Avs, I for one would have no issue with them.
But most of the fights are over clean hits, scrums at the net, or because a couple of goons are on the ice.
Even when Matt Cooke ended Marc Savard's career, how many of the big bad bruins kicked his arse?
