This Is Exactly Why Only Goons Should Be Allowed To Fight

Sweet sassy molassey was this an ugly fight. Flyers center Danny Briere makes it abundantly clear why he has only been credited with two fights during his career with yesterday's atrocious "brawl" with Marc-Edouard Vlasic of the San Jose Sharks.

Ouch. Come on, Briere, don't bother starting a fight if you're not going to throw some punches. If all two players are going to do is grapple, fall on the ice and wait for the referees to separate them, what's the point? NHL fans should not have to be subjected to this kind of rubbish. Don't we have to put up with enough already?

Obviously, this is all Gary Bettman's fault. Screw that guy.
