Stances on issues in hockey

McGuire has been outspoken as an advocate of removing the red line and allowing skilled players to play a skilled game without clutching and grabbing impeding them. His progressive views of hockey have him campaigning for all players to wear partial visors and for hockey to ban fighting. With respect to fighting, McGuire has professed that he loves this aspect of the game but he believes for the game to sell in the United States and for the game to progress, this aspect of the game must be removed. McGuire's outspoken nature provided one of the more interesting stories during the 2004-05 NHL hockey lockout. After McGuire boasted that, if asked to vote privately, more than 70% of NHL players would accept an owner-imposed salary cap, NHL player Tie Domi countered that McGuire was completely off-base. McGuire later retracted part of his claim by saying he never should have given a percentage but that he still believed strongly that assertion was true.[1] This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Tahir Tie Domi (born November 1, 1969 in Windsor, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey player. ...
