I ALWAYS enjoy reading the Sunday column on the National Hockey League by Kevin Paul
Hockey is the only sport that allows fighting. While I do like passion for the game, allowing fighting serves only to turn the contest over to the goons, of which the Bruins always seem to have an ample supply.
This makes the NHL at times look like nothing more than a “beer league.’’ I played in these adult recreational leagues for more than 25 years, and the similarities are glaringly obvious.
This point is only underscored by the blatant inability of the NHL to respond to head shots such as the one Marc Savard suffered, and that still occur all too often in the league.
