I personally think it's pretty badass but it will obviously carry with it ramifications. I've always wondered why they allowed fighting whilst American Football would never let something like this fly.

Hockey fights are one of precious few things in life that I'm truly passionate about, haha. I actually wrote my freshman writing class final paper on it😂 But yeah, I used to want to be a goon when I was kid but we couldn't afford for me to play, it's a rich kid's game around these parts, for sure. But the answer is that hockey polices itself, and I think that's one of the greatest things about the game. Like its dangerous as fuck already, the skates, the sticks, the puck, the boards, and these guys are FLYING out there at the pro level. So you can get FUCKED UP real quick, and you have to have a way to keep everyone honest. If you have a bruiser you can send over the boards and bang someone out in front of 18,000 people, they're more likely to keep their stick down, less likely to fire that extra shot after the whistle at your goalie, less likely to clean someone's clock when they're vulnerable👍 Tempers run hot out there...
