Some teams are just at a completely different level though. Again, check out finals from a couple years back. It was at an embarrassing level.

Does anyone find it odd that all three of these guys were his teammates on the 2010 Canadian Olympic team?

Is this stretch also the most talented fight card streak ever? Are there any other talented players who fought other talented players 3 times in a row or more?

Wasn't sure if I should have put this in this forum or the fights forum, mods move to the appropriate one please.
Remember Backes fighting three guys on the Canadian Olympic team in a matter of weeks leading up to the event. Not spaced over this long a time frame, would name that as more impressive.

The last six fights in Proner's NHL career over a span of ten years were against Willie Mitchell, Cleary, Handzus, Barch, Slegr, and Varada. Sorry Pronger didn't go all that often and didn't take on the caliber of player you're eluding to with this post.

He tried going after Heatley one game, too. Clowe stepped in and Backes immediately turtled.

Are you kidding? Jumbo would have his hands full with Iggy. Iginla is a far superior fighter.

Both looked very good in this fight.

Toews is lucky Joe is a nice guy and didn't fight like that when they went.

Thornton would destroy Kesler, and Kesler was smart to avoid the fight (and yes likely 'scared').

That is how the series started. How it proceeded after that point was that Kesler played some of the best hockey of his career until the injury.

The Canucks, led in large part by Kesler, won in 5.

In Summary:
1 moral victory for Thornton, series victory to the Canucks.

Moral victories tend to be for players on the losing side.

Thornton was better in that series than Kesler was. Your logic is flawed and terrible.
