Ray Emery Likes to Punch

Thanks the high heavens for YouTube, so I can post this clip from last night's Senators-Sabres matchup/rumble. Just remember, Ray Emery is a big boxing fan, so it wasn't too wise for Martin Biron to challenge him.

Of course, some of you know that I think that kind of stuff is disgusting and ridiculous. But someone else hit it on the head that no one ever turned the channel during a hockey fight.

That said, who didn't Peters annhialate?

It was kind of amusing watching the TV guy standing in the middle between Ruff and ... Murray is it? Heatley came over to watch for a little bit.

To Emery's credit, it didn't really look like he wanted to really be involved, just felt obligated. He took of his mask with a bit of a smile, like, " we go." Got a couple of licks in, then put Biron down and just tried to keep him there like, "Ok, cool down. It's over."

Intrepid analysis from Steeltown Mike

if the NFL allowed those types of brawls, I'd bet you a jelly donut we would never see Porter's "Boot", Reggie Bush's "Point", or Ray Lewis' "Get Rid of the Knife" dance.

Overall, the character of the NHL's players is much more respectable than any of the other professional sports.

Didn't mean for it to come across as "high horse", Lou. I just don't get fired up for them, even if the Penguins would be involved. "High horse" would entail disdain for those who do enjoy it. I just personally don't get it.
