Where do you stand on fighting in the NHL? After the Arron Asham-Jay Beagle fight last week, many around the league have begun questioning whether or not fighting will remain in the league long-term. Many fans point to the fighting as hypocrisy while the league tries to cut down on headshots in play. If Brendan Shanahan and co. are so concerned about headshots while skating, why are players allowed to punch each other in the head?
