Hockey needs the rough stuff

Fighting and big hits must stay in the game.

These are the tools players need to change the momentum of a hockey game.

With goals being at a premium, teams need a way to take a game back.

In football, you can have a big hit or a big gain on any given play.

Baseball has the long ball and basketball players can bring a show-stopper on every possession.

In hockey, we have the rough stuff and I for one hope it doesn't go anywhere.
