Do Linesmen Have Money on Fights?

Stan Fischler chimes in with an article posted over at Max Hockey (fantastic site by the way, if you ever run out of stuff to read at IC, I highly recommend it) where he discusses the trend of linesmen letting fights go on too long.

“Once upon a time linesmen made it their business to break up fights in a REASONABLE amount of time.

Not any more.

It’s as if the new breed of linesmen don’t want to get their hands dirty.

They seem to want a fight to the finish — or at least the zebras appear quite willing to allow the punches, grappling and sweater-tugging to last until Midnight.

Too many times The Maven has witnessed fisticuffs in which the combatants themselves virtually plead — with eye contact — for a halt but their urgent requests are denied.”

Back in business on Tuesday as the Jets welcome former bench boss Paul Maurice and the Panthers to town.

The Moose have another day of practice.
