Friday's Dump & Chase: How Do You Feel About Fighting?

That guy in the Avs jersey likes it...reason enough to oppose? - Frederick Breedon

Personally, I like it when it's spontaneous. Somebody gets out of line, makes a run at the goalie, etc. and it gets settled on the ice. That's an important part of the game. The staged fights? Kinda stupid in my opinion. And as a momentum shifter? I don't know...I'm sure somebody has a story about seeing a fight swing the energy and outcome of a game, but I feel like I see a lot of fights when we're already down 3 goals. If it really helped win games, you'd see it more in the playoffs, where winning games is pretty important. But you don't.
