Wild should jump on the bandwagon and get Kassian in the lineup. We need some muscle

I'm in the minority - I could really do without most of the fighting. Some of it happens for legitimate reasons, but some of it seems a little forced. Konopka seems to fight just for the sake of fighting - it seems a little fishy when a guy can't be on the ice more than 30 seconds without getting into yet another brawl. I get the idea of defending your teammates, but ZK gets into so many fights it actually gets tedious to watch after a while - I'd rather get back to the actual game.

I'd rather see more guys like Konopka in the league than a guy who has no value other than the staged fight. Konopka is on the first team PK and a very good in at face offs. The staged fights between guys who play 3 shifts/night probably needs to be addressed - just give them 5 and a game misconduct.

In-game fighting is a major reason the NHL will never be more than a niche sport. Legitimate team sports do not tolerate fighting; they impose significant penalties on the participants. Skilled hockey players are a joy to watch. Thugs ruin the beauty and pace of the game.

muscle is one thing...wrestling and fighting is another sport all together...and please don't tell it's a "part of the game" cuz it not nor does it need to be...
