I remember this one. It took Mirasty (5'10", 188) 2-3 punches to knock Boogaard out.

I still cannot believe Derek Boogaard is being talked about in the same sentence as the NHL. He is fighting his way to the show, and that is one of the problems with today's game. Fighting is part of the game, but you have to be able to play some hockey too. Guys like Tie Domi and Chris Simon can score some goals while guys like Jody Shelley, Wade Brookbank, Peter Worrell, and apparently now Derek Boogaard have done nothing in their careers but drop the gloves. Players like that should be in the ECHL at best because they possess ECHL-level hockey skills.

...And if Arby is Derek's little brother, then that says a lot about Derek's hockey skills if he needs his brother praising him on message boards.
