    Waiting for someone to make a Clown Comment that “rugby players are tougher than hockey players and rugby players don’t get brain injuries” . . .

      Correct Craig. Hockey players have the worst helmet ever invented for contact sports. They also get in a lot of fights and often get their bell rung or outright knocked out.

        I don’t want to argue with you, but I remember games from the 70s and 80s and compared to those decades, there are no longer a lot of fights in the NHL.

        Even the past 3 years alone have seen a dramatic decrease in fighting majors.


        Let’s also not forget that it’s a penalty now if you take off your helmet before a fight, so that has certainly led to (1) a decrease in fights because players don’t want to break their hands and (2) less concussions when a player goes down and hits his head on the ice.

        Hockey is my #1 major sport, so I’m game for some hockey talk if you are.

          You say you don’t want to argue with us and then you proceed to argue with us. Happens on every article. You might have improved relations if you agreed once in a while.
