PanthersWin - "the Hawks... are known for stupid trades like that..." Like what? Name one? By the way, genius, teams can't renegotiate contracts. They can extend, but it doesn't change the current deal. You want a trade? how about Vokoun for Huet and Brian Campbell? The Hawks aren't going to have two goalies with starting goalie contracts like last year. You take one off their hands before expecting them to take yours.
"the NHL has created an environment in which fighting is tacitly approved, mostly because the powers that be lack the strength to take this nonsense out of the sport." You make this sound like something that just happened recently. The truth is that fighting has been part of hockey since it began. Some of the best known players of all time are known for their fighting, Eddie Shore, Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe and Mark Messier among them. Let's not rewrite history in order to argue your cause.
