The lawsuits will also end football as we know it, over time. Any sport with the potential for head injuries will be sued into non-contact.

I hate it but not stopping it now.

Pretty smart strategy by the league. They are trying to show the union was complicit in blocking rule changes to make the game "safer".

I honestly wish they would just outlaw it, it's a complete joke now, so why even have fighting?

If you guys would have seen that pathetic attempt to fight last night at the end of the Rags/ Ottawa game, you would agree with me that the end is already here.

Nobody knew what to do.. It was embarrassing to see NA Style hockey not know how to drop the gloves & throw a punch & truly engage in a fist fight.

Cochrane it was embarrassing to watch. Each generation is getting worse. Most of the guys in the NHL now have never been involved in a fight. If Tiger Williams came out of retirement I would say 90% of the league would be scared to fight him.

If Mike Milbury came out of retirement, 90% of the guys would be afraid to fight HIM.

I have been watching some of the games, not sure I have ANYTHING TO ADD, Hockey will be turned into a woman's game in 3-4 years.

HW predictions:

1- Checking will be removed FROM HOCKEY 2020.
2- Women will be in the NHL in 2021.

VOTE Democrat 2020, MY predictions need to come TRUE.

    In response to HEAVYWEIGHT

I don't know about women being in the NHL, but fighting will be totally gone by 2020. The NHL won't even have to ban it as with the junior leagues basically outlawing it nobody will know how to fight or have a willingness to fight.

Checking will soon follow, but again if a head check happens it may be sooner with lawsuits and stuff.
