Lol the KHL is funny. They screwed Ray Emery by signing him for a $2M contract and eventually he found out that they played him by saying it was 2M in Rubles.

Hahahaha firing coaches in the middle of games. That is priceless.
Also, I've never heard of a coach challenging a player to a fight. The closest I've seen to that in American sports is in the NBA a few seasons ago when the ref challenged Tim Duncan to a fight in the middle of the game.
Also with the Blue Jays when the manager challenged Ted Lilly to a fight.
Then they went in the dugout and actually did fight.
You could tell they were ready to go at it right on the mound when the manager was taking him out. And it did look like the manager was moreso the instigator. You didnt' actually see them fight, but you could tell by watching the other's reaction in the dugout that something serious was happening.
