Yeah, but the league (and also the Finnish Ice Hockey Federation) is having big pressure from media, politicians, etc. to give strict suspension for fighting especially now afer the police have started a total of four crime investigations from the Jokerit-HIFK European trophy game. As a result, I wouldn't expect a lot of fights in Finland this season.
