Default Re: Off Topic Chat Thread

it's been a hot topic lately because studies have shown that nhl fighters often end up having brain complications later in life. 3 current(well not current anymore but they were current at the time) nhl fighters committed suicide this past offseason too. Plus like Snowwy said the league's best player, rookie of the year last year, and this years current goal leafs and points leaders are all out with concussions currently(4 different very important players all at the same time). They weren't a result of fights, but getting punched in the head repeatadly can never be good when it comes to concussions.

It's a hot topic for the NHL atm, but I don't suspect that fighting will be banned for at least 5 years though I do see it happening sometime down the road, just not sure when.

Personally, I hoep it stays, the players who partake in a fight, know the risks beforehand, and accept them. This is vastly different from getting a concussion after being blindside hit with an elbow. You don't have an option there.
