Fans want hockey fights no matter the cost

In the event you still think the National Hockey League or the fans of the Minnesota Wild are interested in getting fighting out of hockey, we give you last night’s action at the Xcel Energy Center.

It’s the kind of fight not seen since Derek Boogaard provided the fan entertainment for the Minnesota Wild, got injured, became addicted to painkillers, and died of an overdose.

An examination of his brain revealed he had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, possibly as a result of being the pre-eminent enforcer in the NHL, the New York Times said.

Was it worth it? Are you not entertained?
