Not sure if the police were called in or not.

In all seriousness, Montreal is in a real slump, and this should come as no surprise.

Broken fingernails depending on if they got rid of the visors before they fought :P

That article makes it sound like fights are common on every team. Really? I can't recall one happening on the Wings since I've been old enough to pay attention to stuff like that. I don't really see how fighting your teammate will make the team play as a team, though. I've heard of fights from goofing around, but a serious one seems like it'd be more trouble than a part of "healing as a team." Montreal is such a screwed up organization.

I'm pretty sure that Kopecky fought Samuelsson at practice once... There were no survivors

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Dickheads at NESN made it sound better than it was. Was a punch even thrown?

I wonder if Plekanec uttered a racial slur to get that party started? :ph34r: Bad taste? :hehe:

Well if they'd hurry up and get a head coach that speaks French none of this would be happening. Glad to see they've got their priorities right in Montreal.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

that english speaking cretin was yelling "no, no!" when he should have been yelling "non, non!"

this needs to be fixed ASAP.

That's the first thing I thought of. Primeau and Probert. I can't remember what started it, Probie making fun of Primeau about a goal or something?


But overall I think the article is wrong in how often they make it sound like it happens, at least at the NHL level. Team chemistry aside, no GM wants their players injuring one another.


Fights between players at practice happen at some point of the season on most teams, usually when they are in a slump. The players saw no lingering ill effects from this skirmish.


Usually when a fight breaks out it's because the team has pretty big problems. And it's no surprise Subban was involved. He seems like a very immature player still.

Holland's management style is why we never hear of anything like this happening with the Wings.

And what's that? Filling the roster with a bunch of wusses?

Primeau took a run at someone and I can't remember who.

From what I could find online after poking around, which sounds like how I remember it at the time, is that Primeau was bitching about not getting an assist on a goal from the game the night before. So as a joke at practice someone shot the puck into the net and they had someone announce "Assist to Keith Primeau" on the PA. He was pissed and started going after people and Probert obliged.
