Hockey Gladiators?

Any thoughts on it? I dont knwo enough about it but it sounds quite interesting. Any chance sandy will enter? He should know that in order to win you must fight

Also any big names going in, i vaguely remember hearing about Twits entering but from what ive seen they are all minor league scrappers.

I believe Frank "The Animal" Bialowas is also entering.

I don't think I like this idea at all. I've thought for a long time the the "goon" aspect of hockey detracts from its appeal to NEW fans, who see fighting as a gimmick. I'm not convinced fighting has a place in the NHL, but whatever its place, it's something the league should be downplaying in trying to build an image.

What next? Beanball Wars?

Perhaps opposing batters can take their shots at pitching fastballs at guys like Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez.

I think it is not really hockey related. Its basically a treet rawl on skate. hockey involes 2 goaltenders, 5 players on the ice for each team, 3 20 minute periods and a puck. Form what i understand this does not have any of them. I think it might be quite interested to hear about though as a fight fan.

I dont think people should over react with the this whill ahve a negative impact on hockey stuff because its more life wwf (or whatever you call it) then hockey. A lot of the guys look out of shape and are minor leaguers, even some from Europe.

I think it should be quite an interesting event, no matter what the outcome is.
