In discussing why the NHL had introduced a rule this season requiring players to keep their helmets on during fights, Healy explained the roots of the rule change trace back to the 2009 death of Don Sanderson, who suffered a head injury in a fight in senior hockey and never recovered.

Healy: "Don Sanderson" hit his head on the ice, no helmet and he died. And if that happens in this game, the National Hockey League, fighting will be gone from the game."

Simpson: "I guess you ask, Glenn, why does that (the death of a player) need to happen for that (the elimination of fighting) to happen?"

It"s a great question. Whatever your position on fighting, it"s safe to assume that we can all agree that fighting to the death"even an accidental death"is an undesirable outcome.

Right? We"re good with that? Death in hockey is bad.

Reasons for voting decision: S&G because Con's R2 was nigh-unreadable. Conduct because Pro forfeited, and arguments because Pro never produced a rebuttal case beyond "Deaths in hockey are bad"--this certainly doesn't extend to all fights (and, to a certain extent, is addressed by Pro's own argument--now they wear helmets).
