Serious question. I don't read other hockey boards, so I don't know the answer to this question.
Do other forums have as many posters who don't believe fighting and enforcers have a place in the game? It seems like we have many, and I wonder how much of that has to do with Kenny Holland and the Wings philosophy of finishing last in fighting majors every year for the last 10+ years?
Seems like the attitude of the team and management has rubbed off to the fanbase.
With that said, I know many Wings fans who can't stand that philosophy and root for the team in spite of it.
There's a difference between having a guy who will fight and can do other things and having a talentless meatbag who can do nothing but punch people.
