Whether it's on-ice fist fights or head shots into the glass, hockey has become a nightly news spectacle with players pummeling and bashing each other across the ice like drunken gladiators. And while the NHL may actually condone on-ice violence as a ticket draw, diehard hockey fan and expert Adam Proteau argues against hockey's transformation into a thuggish blood sport. In Fighting the Good Fight, Proteau sheds light on the many perspectives of those in and around the game, with interviews of current and former NHL stars, coaches, general managers, and league executives, as well as medical experts. Covering the most polarizing issue in hockey today, Fighting the Good Fight gives hockey fans and sports lovers everywhere a reason to stamp their feet and whistle at a rare display of eloquence and common sense.Why On-Ice Violence Is Killing Hockey Adam Proteau. possessing actual NHL talent. ... wasna#39;t a healthy scratchfrom thelineup, barely appearingontheofficial score sheet unless hewas drilling his fistsinto theheadof afellow member ofthe NHLPA. ... a€œlowlighteda€a€”by a goalie fight thatsaw Penguins netminderBrent Johnson floorIsles counterpart Rick DiPietro with a single punch thatbroke several bones inanbsp;...
