The NHL GMs at their spring meetings in Naples, Fla. On Tuesday have recommended that players who have ``staged'' fights be assessed a 10-minute misconduct penalty.
That means any brawl where two heavyweights say, ``Do you wanna go?'' would be subject to that rule.
Now, on one hand, you would speculate that this would bring a stop to these kinds of fights. On the other, who really cares if a fighter is gone for five minutes or 15 if he's only playing five minutes a game, anyway?
But it is an interesting recommendation. As many of you have stated: This is one of the most entertaining facets of the game, so why would we want to take it away?
