Re: Yes, without fighting their careers would be less injury prone...

So without rough-stuff and fighting that occurs in hockey, their job would be as safe as an electrician, plumber, accountant or a teacher; therefore, it would only make sense to pay professional players as though there were an electrician, plumber, accountant, or teacher, right? That's about how much revenue pro hockey will generate if it becomes a ballet.
Without rough-stuff that make the game of hockey truly hockey, it's about as exciting as watching electricians, plumbers, accountants or teachers!
