LeanBeef Posted July 26, 2013 Share Posted July 26, 2013 NEW PENALTY NHL executive vice president and director of hockey operations Colin Campbell says GMs also agree to implement a two-minute penalty for fighters who remove their helmets before a fight. So it would be a five-minute penalty for fighting, plus two more minutes for the helmet violation. The new penalty is pending Board of Governors approval. I guess Campbell is sick of seeing his son get beaten up by non fighters. Personally, I think it's a stupid penalty. Sure, it's dangerous when you slam a guy down to the ice with his helmet off but a lot of the time their helmets go flying in the middle of the fight. This is also an extremely stupid rule when you think about players fighting with visors. Hands will be cut, knuckles will be broken, faces will be easier to cut, etc... Your thoughts?
