Where do you get this stuff? No one said anything about banning hits or making the nets bigger.
Yeah tried to search that damn quote, but no luck he basically was the fourth guy welcoming him to the new team. Wish I could remember which site it was.
Who is saying that it's out of date ? Some guys who want to turn hockey into the same ***** sport that soccer is (i.e eliminate hitting also and increase the nets whatever...). I really don't care what type of school some thoughts are what I care about is protection for our star-players and like McGrattan put in the summer "these guys should go out there and do whatever they want".
So yeah I'd rather be oldschool than hoping for something that will not happen! (higher fines relatively to a players salary or harsher suspensions).
I know you love fighting, frank; I've made it clear that I dont. However, our positions on that issue don't necessarily dictate our positions on the issue at hand. There is a huge difference between targeting an unsuspecting players head and engaging in a consentual fistfight. There is no debate that the former has no place in hockey, but the latter still has plenty of supporters. All I am asking is that the league punishes headshots severely enough to deter players from targeting the head.
