The Chicago Blackhawks were in the mood to entertain fans of the interwebs during their prospects development camp. They hooked up 2012 fifth round draft pick Garret Ross and had him troll other players looking for a fight. Free agent Chris Martin decided he was game and the sounds of their fistacuffs can be heard here.
I love the clarification before the gloves were dropped: “‘Do you want to go buckets off?’ I was like, yes please, I do not want to punch your helmet.”
As Puck Daddy points out, “The best moment of the clip, of course, was the post-fight conversation/instant review of their fight, in which the combatants decided they needed to “go again” to give the onlookers “something better than that.”

I was taken a little by surprise that the Blackhawks might trade Nick Leddyâfor the right returnâwhen a source told me it was a possibility in the wake of Johnny Oduya's contract extension a number of weeks back.
Then, scuttlebutt creeped out that the Hawks were "infuriated" that Leddy's agent, Neil Sheehyâwho is also Ryan...
I made the trip from Traverse City back to South Lyon safely and soundly, and while the scenery in South Lyon isn’t nearly as lovely as it is in the Cherry Capital, it feels good to be home and to know that I won’t be getting up at 6 AM tomorrow. aside from a Saturday’s worth of varying reactions to what was apparently the NHL’s real first CBA proposal to the NHLPA yesterday—and...
Look at the photo above and ask just ask yourself which guy has it together the most. Truthfully, they all do.
