I just listened to Clement's comments on the whole Bertuzzi incident and he had some good ideas. He said that since fighting has decreased since the 70's it actually promotes more violent acts. The reason people didn't go gunning for the best players (which Naslund is for Vancouver) is because you knew there was a guy on that team who is there to basically make sure that there will be retaliation. Gretzky and Lemiux weren't targets for checks because of these enforcers who would go and fight anyone that was out of line. This type of self-policing took a lot of flak but it seems very logical. Since the NHL has put in the instigator rule fighting has decreased, but these out of line senseless acts of violence like Bertuzzi, McSorley, Domi. If there were enforcers actually enforcing then this might not have happened. It's a novel idea, but actually makes sense. More controlled violence (fighting between players) leads to less senseless violence (vicious attacks from behind). I for one would like to see this go into effect.
