Back in the 80s, 90s, and even early 00s hitting and fighting were celebrated. Playoffs were great because the physicality increased and it was a literal war on the ice. It was a large part of what made hockey playoffs great. Now anytime there is a big hit, you've got these sissy liberals crying on Twitter and message boards about how "it was the worst hit they've ever seen" and how badly they need therapy for witnessing such violence. Followed by such and such player should be banned from the sport. It is really a shame. The sport is turning into ice capades where players are saying away from contact so they don't get suspended and it's taking away from the emotion of the playoffs. I used to be able to watch most games even if my team was out but I now find most games boring. Anyone else feel the same way?
