Well, wow.

Say what you will about their “techniques,” but Calgary Flames forward Olli Jokinen and Edmonton Oilers forward Sam Gagner really threw some passionate knuckle sandwiches in last night’s entry in the Battle of Alberta.

The pugilistic pundits at Hockey Fights.com awarded Gagner the win with 57.6 percent of the votes, while Jokinen and “draw” received 21.2 percent each. (Oddly enough, one commenter described the passionate, yet technique-light fight in a very similar way that I did. Good to know you’re not crazy/there’s someone equally crazy.)

So, the question is, which out-of-left-field finesse player will fight next? It’s been a while since Vincent Lecavalier got his pretty face dirty … just saying.
