should the NHL get rid of the penalty box and sell them as seats for patrons?

    Hockey players aren't too bright. This will cause too much confusion.

    BTW, the concept of removing "unnecessities" to increase capacity has been around for decades.

    Harold Ballard had Foster Hewitt's gondola thrown into an incinerator to make room for private box seats at the Gardens

    I'd like to see 2 guys that go for fighting sit in the same penalty box where they would be free to finish their business.

    That would be entertaining.
