Fighting Evander Kane isn't usually something people enter into lightly, at least not after his one and done knockout of Matt Cooke a couple years ago. He's not only one of the best forwards in the league (and probably the best player on the Winnipeg Jets), he's also got a little temper on him. Alexei Emelin learned the hard way that chirping and antagonizing Kane usually doesn't end well. Wow. Kane wound up with five for fighting and a game misconduct. In case you missed it in the blur, he ripped Emelin's helmet off of his head and threw it over the forward to the ice. It's unclear if that was Kane's intention or if he just has terrible aim and he was going for throwing it at Emelin. Whatever the reason, that's a no-no. You can fight someone, and Emelin seems to agitate people. But ripping off their helmet before they can even throw a swing? Not only is that an awesome feat of coordination and speed, it's stupid. Just fight, Evander -- or better yet, just win, since your team is now in 10th place in the East and is in danger of missing the playoffs yet again. [follow]
