In response to Canucko29
You might have done it on a star but a response was in order at that point. Look at what happened when a teams toughness was considered weak, they brought in toughness. When stars started getting beat up, they signed or traded for enforcers. They added grit. When toughness is concerned now, they just assume that their power play is their equalizer. When the power play isn't useful, the league can still "enforce". There is no necessity to have toughness anymore. All teams and all leagues are at fault now. Fighting is not the only drop of toughness in the game. Every hit is now criticized. I don't have the stats to back it up but stick play is worse now than ever. Stars use their sticks on other players just as much as they do on the stars. The physical nature of the game has changed.
