Outside of the CH World

  • If you looked at NHL starting rosters throughout the league you probably noticed something you're not used to seeing, there are no more "goons". With the adoption of advanced stats throughout the hockey world, teams are beginning to believe that having 18 skaters who can move the puck is better than having 17 skaters who can move the puck and 1 hobbler that tries to protect the other 17. Either way, it looks like fighting could become a rarity in the NHL. [Boston Globe]
