You would have to bring up that pot issue wouldn't you? Yes,yes, I know most of lgk'rs are into that crap but, I'll tell you my own experience with it. I haven't seen my own son in nearly 7 years. Yep, he was a pot smoker, spent a fortune getting him out of trouble over and over again. He went to other things from there. I'm not a enemy of the wacky stuff but, I just can't condone it either.

Eliminating fighting isnt going to do crap for people abusing alcohol and painkillers. This is an excuse to get fighting out of the game and a weak excuse at that.

Hip did you read the articles? Old school fighting wasn't between two 250 pound trained bare knuckle fighters. There is no reason for Jrs to be a training ground for unskilled players to get to the NHL. How did this become a discussion about abusing pain killers? We already know most pro athletes have to deal w/ pain every day. Do you know how the players on your list are really doing? Intentional Blows to the head have no place in hockey.
