Wikipedia is a good place to start, but one shouldn't stop there. There might be subtle difference. Rob the Badger says a fighting major, but Wikipedia says "got into a fight." So maybe Howe got into a fight, or even picked up a minor penalty, but not a major.

I've always heard a Gordie Howe Hat Trick referred to as one goal, one assist and one fight, not a fighting major.

I've always been a Maltby supporter, but I have to admit I was expecting the team to cut him loose. Then, late in the season, I was surprised to read that they were interested in bringing him back at somewhere less than $1 million. Once the playoffs started, it came out that he had signed the extension with a cap number of $883,000 for 3 years. Obviously, the Wings traded salary for term. Somewhere around that same time, I also read that there was significant interest in Malts at the trade deadline (I think it was Atlanta and/or Tampa Bay). While the Wings weren't interested this season, I wouldn't be surprised to see him moved somewhere down the road. Best case scenario, Maltby remains a productive member of the Red Wings for 3 more years and helps teach younger guys like Franzen and Kopecky how to drive the oppositon apesh@t. Even in a worst case (buy-out) scenario, they won't lose a huge amount on him. Overall, I give the deal thumbup.gif

I haven't thought too much about it yet, but one guy I'd definitely be interested in from the UFA list is Taylor Pyatt http://www.tsn.ca/nh...ame=nhl-canucks. Young, big, and fast with lots of offensive upside. Only made $700,000 last year.

just to clarify the Lebda thing... NHL rule # 47.13: "Any player or goalkeeper who engages in a fight and whose jersey is not properly "tied down" (jersey properly fastened to pants), and who loses his jersey (completely off his torso) in that altercation, shall receive a game misconduct penalty"

I know that's the rule and understand the intent...but have a big problem justifying how a league can condone headhunting by consistently failing to suspend and/or fine the guilty parties, yet insists that everyone keep their jersey tied down just in case they get in a fight (especially when they're defending themselves against a headhunter)!
