Brawl of the Week: Buffalo vs. The Isles

Filed under: Islanders, Sabres, NHL General, NHL FightsI’m not one to go ga-ga over a good hockey fight like my colleague Eric McErlain but yesterday’s brawl between the Sabres and the Islanders was a good one, and not just because of the complete righteous smack-job put on by the new captain in Buffalo, Craig Rivet (though that was kinda cool *grin*). No, this, unlike the lame PIM-fest which ended the Phoenix-Anaheim game [though I really felt for the poor linesman who got taken head-first into the boards] on Sunday was filled with a bunch of punches which landed and an object lesson of just how bad this current group on Long Island is.

Note the score, 4-0, they tried to start something after giving up two quick ones and couldn’t even manage to land a decent punch during the brawl they started. Bad at hockey plus bad at fighting equals the end of dignity for my favorite team in a former life.

The NHL should put their fans and the rest of us out of the misery of remembering those great Al Arbour led teams and fold this franchise before anymore damage is done. Then again, Mike MIlbury pretty much did that in the 90’s.

On second thought… bring on the beatdowns.

Ta,
