FIGHT CLUB: In Ft. Worth, Mac Engel writes, "Fighting in the NHL is good for the sport, and good for business." Engel: "The reality is that the NHL does not need any new rule in place to take fighting out of the game because the game is taking care of it. Or at least reducing it. With a heavy emphasis placed on speed and skill, NHL GMs are feeling the pinch on spending a roster spot on an enforcer" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 10/7). But a GLOBE & MAIL editorial states the NHL "should adopt an immediate protocol to give a dressing-room concussion checkup to anyone who takes a punch" (GLOBE & MAIL, 10/7).
