Danny Briere is a fighter now

Jan 7, 2012, 3:33 PM EDT

Apparently when you’re a former Coyote you just feel like brawling sometimes. After all, what other reason could there be for Danny Briere to drop the gloves with Kyle Turris this afternoon? That’s just what happened however as the two non-fighters apparently had had enough of each other.

Thanks to the guys at we learned that Briere’s fight today was just the third in his career and first since 2009 when he fought Marc-Edouard Vlasic. It’s just the second fight in Turris’ career and when you see how these guys set up to square off, you can understand fully why these guys stick to scoring goals.

      Seriously? How can you possibly take that headline literally?

        More importantly, how could they completely refuse to read the article and fail spectacularly at comprehending sarcasm?

    Marc Edouard-Vlasic had a fight? That’s akin to Bert and Ernie throwing down. Holy cow.

    Three goals and a fight! That’s a Gordie Howell hat trick.

    Hey agitator: there’s this thing called sarcasm. Find a dictionary and learn what it is.
