Shanahan: "Role Of Fighting Has To Be Looked At"

5

And here it comes. The National Hockey League is planning on taking a hard look at whether fighting has a place in the game. Former NHLer Brendan Shanahan, the NHL Senior Vice-President of Player Safety and the league's new disciplinarian, admitted to CBC's Peter Mansbridge Thursday during an interview about head shots that fighting was an issue that would be discussed. "Well I think it's something that we have to look at," Shanahan told Mansbridge. "And I said as we evolve and we learn more and more about head trauma and brain trauma, you know, I've played with a lot of these guys who do this for a living, several of them have been my roommates, they're courageous guys, they've got a gene in them that is all about protection and defending their friends, but I worry for them. And I think that is something, along with the competition committee, along with the NHLPA, we're definitely very serious about making advancements and studying blows to the head.

MacIntyre's ready to fight

30

" "You know what? I go into a fight, I'm going into a fight to hurt you," he said. "I'm not going in there to play patty cake." Last February, the Penguins were involved in a high-profile, brawl-filled game with the New York Islanders where Eric Tangradi suffered a concussion at the elbow of rampaging heavyweight Trevor Gillies. The game reinforced the idea that fighting is indeed still an important part of the NHL game. With that in mind, the Penguins needed a replacement for Eric Godard, whose contract was expiring, so they signed MacIntyre in July. How would he handle a situation like the one that developed in the Islanders game? "I'm not 100 percent sure how. I didn't see the whole build up," MacIntyre said. "But maybe you have to go out there and set the tone and grab one of their younger guys, their skilled guys, and just be like, 'I'm sending a message here. Loud and clear. This is not going to be tolerated.' And if it is, somebody's going to have to pay the piper."
