Olympics raise fighting debate again

Michael Ospring, San Jose

I have a simple question for all the traditional hockey fans out there: Did anybody actually miss fighting during the Olympics?

As one who always defended it in the NHL, I can personally say, ‘No.’

That was the best hockey ever seen in a single tournament and it is  pretty obvious that fighting wouldn't have made it any better.

Maybe it's time to rethink some rule changes. And while we're at it, how about no-touch icing.
