Hockey legend Bobby Orr appeared on Off the Record with Michael Landsberg on Friday to discuss an array of topics, including fighting in the NHL. Bacary Sagna Jersey . The Hall of Fame defenceman told Landsberg that he believes fighting still has a place in todays game, but thinks staged fighting needs be outlawed. "I just think that the fear of getting beaten up is a great deterrent from all of a sudden becoming a tough guy," Orr said. "I really believe we have to get rid of the staged fighting and get rid of avenging the legal hit, but I think that we have to leave (fighting) in there. I just think a lot of guys will all of a sudden get real brave and I think that it will lead to more violence in our game." Orr was asked about the hit by Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott to the head of Loui Eriksson of the Boston Bruins and called it outrageous, adding that fighting is needed after illegal hits such as Scotts. "(The hit) made no sense," said Orr. "Loui Erikssons a pretty good hockey player and very important to the Bruins. I mean, Scott goes after Phil Kessel and thats outrageous. Why do you do that? This is why I believe that the fear of getting beat has to be there and a policeman has to be there if theres a reason to fight." Orr, who won Stanley Cups with the Boston Bruins in 1970 and 1972, said that times have changed and the game has to evolve with the changes. "Hey, we did things back in the day that if we did today wed probably be in a lot of trouble," said Orr. "Its changing now. The new fan were trying to attract doesnt want to see some of the foolishness. But I really think we have to be careful with eliminating (fighting) completely. Orr credited the NHL for doing a great job with punishments on head hits and blindside hits, as well as the new hybrid rule. "I think the league is doing a great job with the hits from behind and the high blind spot hits, and I think hybrid icing is a wonderful rule," said Orr. "Its a changing world and weve got to make changes."

. -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. NEW YORK -- Defending champion Andy Murray could face top-seeded Novak Djokovic only in the semifinals at the U.S. Open, while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer -- who have never played each other at Flushing Meadows -- might meet in the quarter-finals. Murray earned his first Grand Slam championship by beating Djokovic in the 2012 U.S. Open final, then added a second by beating the No. 1-ranked Serb in the Wimbledon title match last month. But there cant be a rematch in New York in the final, thanks to Thursdays draw. "Coming to the U.S. Open last year, Id never won a Grand Slam. I didnt know if I was ever going to win one," Murray said at the draw ceremony. "A lot of people would say ... like, Hes good enough to win a Grand Slam. Hes going to win one. But the more finals you lose in, the more you start to doubt yourself and think, Is it ever going to happen? Getting that weight off my shoulders last year was huge." Play at the years last Grand Slam tournament begins Monday. In addition to No. 2 Nadal against No. 7 Federer, a 17-time major champion who has his lowest seeding at the U.S. Open since he was 13th in 2002, the other possible mens quarter-finals are 2011 champion Djokovic versus 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro, No. 3 Murray versus No. 5 Tomas Berdych, and No. 4 David Ferrer versus No. 8 Richard Gasquet or 10th-ranked Canadian Milos Raonic. Federer, who owns five U.S. Open titles, and Nadal also were set up for a possible quarter-final at Wimbledon this year, but that never materialized: Nadal lost in the first round, and Federer in the second. The potential womens quarter-finals at the U.S. Open are No. 1 Serena Williams against No. 8 Angelique Kerber, No. 2 Victoria Azarenka against No. 7 Petra Kvitova, No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska against No. 5 Li Na, and No. 4 Sara Errani against No. 6 Caroline Wozniacki. The woman who originally was seeded third in the tournament, 2006 champion Maria Sharapova, withdrew Wednesday because of a right shoulder injury. Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., joins Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, B.C., in the mens main draw. Montreals Eugenie Bouchard and Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., are in the main womens draw. More Canadians could advance to the main draw. Torontos Sharon Fichman, Stephanie Dubois of Laval, Que., and Frank DDancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont. Franck Ribery France Jersey. , all won their opening qualifying matches Thursday. Torontos Steven Diez and Ottawas Jesse Levine lost the opening round of qualifying. Williams 16 Grand Slam titles include four at the U.S. Open, including last year. Her first-round opponent will be 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone. Williams could play 15th-seeded Sloane Stephens of the United States in the fourth round; Stephens won their Australian Open quarter-final in January. "I take every match really seriously. I dont look too far in the draw. I just look at the first one," Williams said. "For me, my competition comes with each match. Every match is going to be a very, very tough competition for me, and I just stay focused on one at a time." Williams has won 77 of her past 81 matches, and was asked Thursday whether she is playing better than she ever has. "I hope not," Williams answered. "I always like to hope I can do better, so well see." Her older sister, 2000-01 U.S. Open champion Venus, is unseeded and was drawn to play No. 12 Kirsten Flipkens, a Wimbledon semifinalist last month, in the first round next week. Djokovic and 2010 U.S. Open champion Nadal, who recently overtook Murray at No. 2 in the rankings, could meet only in the final. Theyve already met in five Grand Slam championship matches, including in New York in 2010 and 2011. One intriguing earlier matchup for 12-time major title winner Nadal could come in the fourth round, when he might have to play six-foot-10 John Isner, a big-serving American who is seeded 13th and pushed the Spaniard to five sets at the French Open two years ago. Nadal was drawn to play another American, 21-year-old Ryan Harrison, in the first round. Djokovic, who has reached at least the semifinals at the U.S. Open each of the past six years, could face 25th-seeded Grigor Dimitrov in the third round. Dimitrov surprisingly beat Djokovic on clay at the Madrid Masters in May, although Djokovic won their matchup less than a month later at the French Open. In the second round, Djokovic might play Lukas Rosol, the man who upset Nadal at Wimbledon while ranked 100th in 2012, or Benjamin Becker, who defeated Andre Agassi at the 2006 U.S. Open in the Americans last professional match.
