With their hockey operations in Toronto? Makes sense.

Double edit: It was created in Montreal though.

Andre Johnson vs Cortland Finnegan...now that was a good fight. None of that brawling non-sense with a million bodies flying around.

I'm not totally disregarding your point but the N in National represents America.

No one is saying its sophisticated. There is a big push trying to get rid of fighting, hence the instigator penalty. It's mostly the old timers trying to keep it alive, just like it is in the NFL when it comes to helmet to helmet hits.

When has a player from the NFL/NBA gotten jumped by a group of guys? Usually guys come in to break up fights.

Dude said they fight like gentlemen.

I see a lot of thuggish behavior....especially when they hit each other with sticks.

That is thuggish behavior that is looked down on by most hockey fans.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmStcAnjOqA heres Eric Boulton vs Jay Rosehill from last night, 2 guys going toe to toe and letting them fly look how much energy the fight gave the crowd which in return has an effect on the players and they flyers came back and won the game.

Yeah hockey is bigger than most people realize. I went to a hockey school. When we traveled [the b ball team] we ate Arby's and Subway and when they traveled they ate steak and shrimp.

*Mind you they've won so many state titles that we have to have our B team compete for state while our A team travels the country and our b ball team has never won state.
