Like it or Not, Fighting is Essential to Hockey

“Hockey is a unique game in that we have players of all different sizes, with different skill levels and different degrees of courage,” said Nashville General Manager David Poile. “Each is carrying a stick, and a stick has always been a great equalizer. Often times, fighting has been a deterrent for people to stay within character. If you talk to the players, fighting is more important to them than it is to the fans.”

So this is the great debate as the pre-season begins. Should fighting remain or should it be shown the door? There are many opinions out there. Check out the link below for a an article on why fighting is essential to hockey. The article was written for Hockey Independent by WB Philp, the resident Tampa Bay writer. Feel free to leave a comment with your opinion (Pro or Con).

I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
