I remember a fight in the old forum with Domi and Brashear. Brashear was young and Domi was a heavy weight. Leafs were out paling us badly but Brash gave it to him and changed the momentum of the game and we went on to win.
How often would you say those staged fights actually impacted the outcome of a game?? And how about now compared to then? Staged fights nowadays seemed useless 99% of the time.
A reactionary fight after a player got hit, I can see have some momentum change, a staged fight for vengeance as well, but a random staged fight because your team is 3-1 rarely seems to change anything.
