Watch the first elbow to the head, and then fast forward to 2:10 for this dude's greatest hits.

the NHL is the only American sports league that does this, releasing videos clearly explaining their reasoning behind suspensions and punishments
the other leagues are fucking gutless and obfuscate the process
I don't know, jangbones. I'm sure the US Squash League would release videos like this, but are hesitant because of how violent and exciting their injury highlight reels would be.
The other sports leagues seem like they're kinda for pussies in general. How many leagues do you see dudes get their throats cut open so bad they spray blood out like anime geysers?
Ok didn't know that. This looks to me like a nascar driver accidentally causing a collision, like it comes with the sport, but if it happens 10 times..

Serious question because I understand hockey's appeal less than any other sport I've come in contact with (wait, no... that's NASCAR), but would anyone watch hockey without the fights and the general violence?
Well, violence is a big part of the game of course. It should be noted that what this guy did was beyond the pale. But beyond the violence hockey is a very fast, technical, and free flowing sport. The game doesn't even stop for players to come off the bench.
Plus it's just fun. I never played ice hockey but played a lot of roller hockey when I was younger. So there's a lot of appeal right there, vs. a sport like Nascar that few can relate to unless they were lucky enough to grow up on or near a race track. But watching Hockey is less fun, for me anyway, because I can't see the damn puck. When Fox first got NHL they had a pretty cool solution, to make the puck glow and have trails, so home viewers could actually see what was going on and that it was more than people with sticks skating into each other, but that didn't last too long.
