Should NHL stars be dropping the gloves?
Thu, November 4, 2010

It’s a debate in the Stampede City every time Jarome Iginla drops the gloves.

Should a star player fight?

At least Iginla has plenty of experience duking it out.

Imagine what coaches feel when Detroit’s Pavel Datsyuk, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby, New Jersey’s Ilya Kovalchuk or Washington’s Mike Green get into a taffy-pull.

It’s happened already this season.

Fighting not just for the enforcers?

Nothing wrong with stars dropping their gloves from time to time to show they will stick up for themselves.It has always been part of the game,so if the tree huggers don't like to see it, then go watch figure skating or chess.

It's nonsense. There's no fighting in the olympics, but the game survives. In football there's just as much contact, if not more, but nobody drops gear and starts swinging. The fighting has become the staged, expected "show" in the game. Fighting shouldn't be banned for the elite, it should be banned for all. Focus on the sport, keep your fighting to MMA and boxing.

Who cares if its some no name inforcer or Sid the Kid fighting... its part of the game! Mario Lemieux was known to throw a few punches and checks here and there!
