      According to NASA, the image to the left is the birth of a star. I don't know much about astrophysics or cosmology, but I know I've seen stars born in the Canada West Conference over my time working around the league, and some of those stars have gone on to light the path for the next wave of stars that followed.   Like any good hockey fan, Jay uses a chapter in his book to address the elephant in room - fighting in hockey. The argument he makes for fighting is entirely the arguments made since the game was first played while he also takes the opposite side in stating why fighting is a rather ridiculous part of the game on the whole.
