It's a great think we have more pure hockey players and less plugs. What was the list of Chicago's fighter last year? LA's the year before that? IMO fighting is something that is more or less relegated to the east and to teams who need something other than winning to keep fans interested.
That's hilarious when you look at the teams in the West. 3 California teams, Nashville, Phoenix, Columbus, Dallas... but it's teams like Boston, Toronto and Philadelphia that need fighting to keep fans interested.
This is quickly degrading to the point full rosters will soon be included. Some sort of parameters should be established...
I've never seen these guys fight but they might be able to
Guys that could drop the gloves if someone insulted their wife
Guys that are passive but if you piss them off enough they might fight once every 3 years
If you really really egg these guys on and maybe kill all their friends, they'll probably drop the gloves
This guy once had a fight during his 7th grade season, I read an article about it
Oh look my whole favorite team is full of tough guys who can drop the mitts!!!
