    NHL - where the "inmates run the asylum"

    FACT:  Violence only escalates.

    FACT: There is no other sport that allows the players to "make their own justice".

    FACT: The refs cannot control the game of hockey today and we are fast approaching the point where fighting will be more prominent in the NHL than hockey.

    It is a shame that the NHL allows the "inmates to run the asylum". It puts the league barely above roller derby status. There is no other sport that has a rule , written or unwritten, that allows the players to make their own justice? Sort of sounds like "the Ox-Bow incident" all over again. How can anyone apply any logic to the Ray Emery fight against the opposing goalie - answer is that they cannot and yet this behavior is not only tolerated but encouraged. Whether this league cares to admit it or not, it is viewed as just one level above the WWF, which, by the way, does not allow the "inmates to run the asylum".

    Not so much the fighting( outside of Thornton's wwf appearance), as the dirty hits with the increased size and strength of players.  How aboutpenalized player sits out as long as injured player, or in a Savard case sit out a season.

    Hockey is hockey, with or without the NHL, TV contracts, product sponsorships and other bling.

    It's not necessarily a bad thing if the inmates do indeed run the asylum.
