Tuesday Links: Fisticuffs, We Hardly Knew Ye Edition

If you've got a copy of this year's USA Hockey rule & case book, you'll notice a subtle difference. "Fisticuffs" became "fighting." Now, "fighting" may vanish altogether. I found article upon article on banning fighting following this tragic off-season last night and I was quite shocked at the verbose, knee-jerk reactions of sportswriters. Debate about it in the comments or something.
