Ten bucks says they fight every single game they face each other.

That story was awesome and I remember watching that fight (which was great) and wondering what the hell he was yelling about. Good stuff!

That was one hell of a fight. Is it just me, or is it great having Brad May here? Respectable character guy who can still throw em.

It might not look like they are punching as hard as they really are, but watching how fast that helmet flew off gives you an idea.

Took the words right out of my mouth thumbup.gif

I'm far happier having May here that I thought I would be at the beginning of the season.

"If you didn't know him, and saw him without hockey gear, you'd never suspect Datsyuk to be a world-class athlete. He walks a bit hunched over. His gait is somewhat crab-like, almost like he's still skating, even on dry land.

But put him on skates and he's Houdini on ice. He is not the fastest skater by a long shot, but there can't be too many who are stronger or more flexible. Checking him has to feel like checking Gumby. You might get a piece of him, but he bounces away, moving faster thanks to the leverage he gained from your check."

I'm just glad May actually won a fight! It was getting almost painful to watch him getting beat-up night after night laugh.gif

They're ******* in the sense they fight for no reason. THIS is why fighting should be banned. Go watch Pacqi and Cotto if you want to see a fight. If it serves a 'purpose', then fine. Otherwise the NHL might as well be run by Coach - all fighting and no Euros.

You're welcome to your opinion. But if you think that fight was for no reason then you don't have the correct idea of what fight's are for in hockey. The purpose is for momentum and entertainment. If you don't find that entertaining, then sorry you're in the minority just go grab something to drink and come back after it, just because you don't like it you want it banned for everyone? That's like saying I don't like eggs for breakfast so screw Denny's for having it on the menu!

lmao.

That's like saying Zetterberg passes for no reason. There's roles for each thing, as well as checking and fighting. You obviously don't understand that.

I don't completely agree with you, but I see where you're coming from. I wonder if they really help theirs team and give them momentum when everyone knows that they're going to go at some point. Now it's more like their fights act as short intermissions during games and don't have anything to do with how the game has been going. Hey maybe May and Barch could stay on the ice after periods and fight for 15 minutes until next period starts so the fans would have something to watch between periods too.

Wasn't there talk at some point last season that players will start getting suspensions from preplanned fights?

"Finger-pointing is easy. In some cases, even therapeutic. Fans need to blame something,

because the outcome is so frustratingly out of their control."
