The incident with Marchand and Williams was a result of the officials missing the initial foul by Marchand and penalizing Williams for his retaliation. Fighting in the NHL is down and guys like Marchand are going to continue to do their thing until another player puts him in his place.Don't wait for the league.

It has absolutely nothing to do with fighting

I'd say that if there was more fighting, like in the NHL's past, then little dirty shit-stains like Marchand would either be getting their ass kicked or would have to hide while their own enforcer took on the challenger a la Gretzky/McSorley.

Yeah, just what the league needs, a mcsorley running around chopping people in the head with their stick. So instead of midget punks doing stupid dirty stuff, you have 6'4 guys being ultra dirty. Also worth pointing out he has chara to hide behind already.

Just have the officials and the league do their jobs. When he licked Callahan, he should have been gone for the series. When he recently cross checked a player from behind it should have been an ejection.

If anything, fighting needs to become extinct in the game.

I'm not advocating one way or the other on returning to the old ways.

I like it and would not want to see it removed entirely.

Hasn't fighting declined over the years? I see nothing wrong with 2 guys going at it in the heat of the moment vs the old 2 cement heads who've played all of 30 seconds coming off the bench to punch the crap out of each other. Guys like Marchand will eventually have to pay the price for their antics.

He's 31 yo and finishing his 10th season in the NHL. Goofy to believe that anything is going to be different with him. Add to that he scored 100 pts this past season; he's golden.
