It's a shame that teams (like Tampa Bay) are seemingly built to survive/take advantage of the 'softness' the NHL is trending towards year after year. The mindset of "if we ignore it enough the refs will handle it for us" is lame. Is it "SMART" for them to not fight, sure, for them. It certainly isn't a complicated or new concept.
This is hockeyfights.com, mikeb. The 'smartness by being vaginas' mindset doesn't deserve praise here. It's not complicated.
