Re:


I don't care to read papers that are published East of the Bay Bridge, so it's a find to me.

It's one thing to fight in hockey, but the toll it takes on those whose sole job it is as enforcers...that's where change is needed. The recent deaths of enforcers is all the evidence the NHL should need to start making a change. How to make a change, without banning fighting (I do think it's an important part of the game)...I don't know.

Congrats on BEXP, put that home run $$$ in a safer asset class.
