IIRC, McCarty and Lemieux had a staged fight once, maybe around 98/99 (not the "turtling" fight, but still in the midst of the bad blood between the Wings and the Avs). In that instance, I was completely ok with a staged fight. But that's the exception, not the rule...
Agreed. Because in that case there was already a lot of bad blood and scores to settle. If it's from some prior incident earlier in the season that's totally fine.
I'm guessing it was this one? If memory serves that was Lemieux basically trying to redeem himself after turtling in the infamous brawl.
