    Why would non-hockey fans be granted a say in the changing the rules of the game? I’m not a football fan and think tackling is dangerous. Does this mean the NFL should adjust to touch-only tackling?

    The Hawks had an amazing run! Can’t wait for them to hoist the CUP!

  3. Sandy says:

    Staged fighting should be banned.. Fights as a result of hits or cheapshots will still happen..
