SI.com's Jim Kelley writes that NHL GMs will take up the fighting debate at their meeting in Florida in March. Colin Campbell, the league's director of hockey operations, is behind the effort to seriously address the necessity of fighting and the question of whether banning it will hurt fan interest. The movement in favor of the debate has gained momentum since the recent death of senior league player Don Sanderson, and there is the fear that today's NHL players are so big that fighting poses more risk of serious physical injury.
What do you think? Should the NHL ban fighting? Is there a sensible way to keep it but minimize the danger? Is the fear of someone being killed in a fight unreasonable?
