lol @ b.t.wilson. I was thinking the same thing before reading that post.
I'm sad to say that, after watching hockey for 20 years, I've grown bored with fighting. Non-fans will ask me, "why are they allowed to fight in hockey?" and my reply is usually, "because it's self-policing; it deters cheap play" but hmm...I simply don't believe that anymore. It obviously doesn't. Not to mention the fights between the actual "tough guys" like Boogaard, etc. Who cares? They're just wasting a roster spot for someone who can actually skate. Remember when Carolina won the Cup with a no-fighting policy?
Nice to see a fight with punches thrown instead of circling, armlock, wrestling takedowns, or 6'6" giants holding off smaller fights with straight arms. I rated it higher than others might because it is what fighting in hockey is intended to be. Player calling out another for questionable play, both answered bell.
