(contrary to a previous report, the government has no say in this matter, but they do support the QMJHL in having this vote)

The news came from twitter yesterday morning, but the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League will vote today to ban fighting from the league which operates within the province of Quebec (also in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island).

The English translation of the tweet says:

The @LHJMQ will vote on the ban on fighting tomorrow. I support this initiative. The league is a valuable partner in the establishment of a healthy and safe sports environment and this decision will confirm its leadership.”

The news comes with not much facts around it and definitely a lot less clarity as to what a vote to ban fighting would mean for the league which is currently still playing out it’s regular season.

Former QMJHL player, Mathieu Olivier has spoken up saying he would like to see players (former and otherwise) get a voice at the table, and definitely not have something like this in the hands of only league officials.

Questions abound from this decision, how will it affect the league currently. Why didn’t they make a rule change instead of the government coming over the top? How would this play out in the Memorial Cup tournament where the QMJHL teams play against the WHL and OHL teams.

As the decision comes down the pipeline, we will be sure to update.

So, earlier this week I penned (with internet ink) a piece about how the Battle of Alberta is pushing to be the best rivalry in the NHL currently. I don’t think I could have even imagined a more exciting fourth installment than what we had last night.

Is the Battle of Alberta the best rivalry going?

The Edmonton Oilers headed into Calgary Flames country with visions of a Dave Rittich “bat flip” at the end of Wednesday night’s game dancing in their heads:

The game started with two goals for the Oilers in the first three minutes. You had the sense of the old Battle of Alberta being back. The physical intensity was missing though. That didn’t last long as towards the end of the first period Jujhar Khaira and Buddy Robinson (both players who were brought in for Wednesday’s BoA) had a spirited tilt:

JUJHAR KHAIRA VS BUDDY ROBINSON

And then things just began to build from there. The goals they started flying, and once the game hit 6-3 Oilers, the powder keg was primed for explosion.

Sam Gagner (in his 53rd game against the Calgary Flames) dove after a seemingly loose puck on then goalie, Cam Talbot and all hell broke loose. First we had Ethan Bear and Matthew Tkachuk (who after fighting Zack Kassian on Wednesday night has doubled his fight total for the year):

ETHAN BEAR VS MATTHEW TKACHUK

and then mid sequence there, the heavens opened up and for the first time in the Battle of Alberta, GOALIE FIGHT:

MIKE SMITH VS CAM TALBOT

This game seemed to have it all. Tons of goals, big saves, physicality and yes, goalie fights. The only true shame is that we have to wait until April 4th for the next Battle of Alberta.

But I think we can all agree, the best thing for the NHL this year might just be a first round matchup between these two teams.

At the start of this season, you may remember I came to you on these very hallowed pages and called the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights rivalry the best one going right now. Well, two scrappy teams from Alberta have given me some pause for thought.

The best rivalry in the NHL right now?

Don’t get me wrong, the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights is still a fun series to watch and I believe that they are still at the top but the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers have entered the arena of relevancy once again with a couple of spirited affairs that date back to the last game of the 2019 regular season.

For those of you who weren’t aware:

Initial X-ray results look good for Connor McDavid, will have MRI on Sunday

The Oilers won the game, but their captain (and for their former GM Peter Chiarelli’s efforts, their whole team) went down with a pretty significant knee injury. That knee injury that was just revealed as possibly far worse than originally thought, this week in a documentary that has aired in Canada and will make it’s way to the US on NBC February 18th:

The fires have been building since then and when the schedule came out, it turned out the first Battle of Alberta wouldn’t happen until the end of December. That actually wasn’t the worst thing for the rivalry as since that December 27th game (in which the Flames decimated the Oilers) the two teams have played each other two more times (Jan 11th – 3-2 CGY win and Jan 29th – 4-3 CGY SO win) and a fourth match-up is not too far away with the two playing in Calgary this Saturday night.

Kassian / Tkachuk

To find the start of the Tkachuk/Kassian was some bad blood born in a game back on November 17th, 2018 when Zack Kassian and Matthew Tkachuk got into it and Tkachuk was first accused of “Turtling” by the Oilers fan base:

As I mentioned before, the Giordano/McDavid incident kept things going into the offseason and then on January 11th, Matthew Tkachuk again drew the ire of Kassian and co. with a couple of hits that the hockey community deemed within the rules, but dangerous nonetheless:

Following hit #2, Kassian went off:

And then media, players and everyone in between spent two weeks, and change talking about a whole litany of issues and topics:

Tkachuk on Kassian: ‘If he doesn’t want to get hit, then stay off the tracks.’

  • Does the code in hockey still exist?
  • Are blindside hits the most dangerous play in hockey?
  • Should Kassian be suspended? (he was, for two games)
  • Will they or won’t they go in the next game?

And as to that last point, we got our answer in the form of two fights last night.

About Last Night

I don’t know if I can remember a game in the last few years at least where you were expecting so much from a physicality side of hockey. Basically a nightmare for Bettman.

I’d love to find someone with a tweet/text or something that predicted it was going to be Sean Monahan and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to be the first fight of the night.

Sean Monahan vs Ryan Nugent-Hopkins — 16:11 of the 1st period

In what would turn out to be the “better” (as rated by the fans) fight of the night, Monahan (1 fight) and Nugent-Hopkins (3 fights) would turn in a spirited bout.

Then, less than 30 seconds later, Tkachuk and Kassian lined up at the faceoff dot for the second time that night (The first time looks like Tkachuk wanted to go and Kassian turned him down):

Matthew Tkachuk vs Zack Kassian — 16:36 of the 1st period

This fight was just a good thing to see from Tkachuk, who to his credit, took a fight against a guy in Kassian who is the far superior pugilist of the two. He answered the bell for his hits previously and all should be good on that end…

Who’s Next?

Except, as Kassian was leaving the ice cameras caught Zac Rinaldo (career fights for Rinaldo) from the Flames bench with a couple of words for the man:

I don’t know if this is indeed the best rivalry in hockey overall right now, but I can tell you for certain I know I’ll be tuned in to Saturday’s rematch of these two teams and for a possible Zac on Zack attack of sorts.
