I find this a little unbelieveable. I'm not a fan of either team, but this was just incredably biased. Now, the two fighters are Shawn Thornton from the Boston Bruins (yellow) and Alex henry from the Montreal Canadiens.
The TV announcer is Jack Edwards, and you can tell quite easily which team he likes and which team he hates.
-0:13- When he mentions that Alex Henry (a defenceman) is "nowhere near the scoring resume of Shawn Thronton (A forward)" he's really comparing someone that's not supposed to score goals vs someone who is, but has only 23 goals in 8 seasons (he played 350 games).
-0:18- "Thonton drives him to the glass"
-0:30- "and [Thonton] scores on the big goon"
-0:34- henry "who spent the year in Hamilton working on his pugulistic skills" (again saying Henry can't play hockey)
-0:41- "But don't expect him to do anything with the [hockey] stick in his hands". Meaning that he can't play Hockey at all (then why is he in the NHL?)
-0:45- "the uniform...fits perfectly because they just rearranged the prison stripes on this guy" (wow)
-0:50- "he's arm weary, he's gassed, and he's gone" (really? Doesn't seem so...)
end of vid: "Well Shawn [Thornton] may be one of the most underrated players in the national Hockey League. He's shown he has the goal scorer's touch" (I laughed at this. Thornton had 6 goals that entire season despite firing 136 shots on goal, that's a 4.4% shooting percentage, which is worse than the average defenceman (again, he's a forward)).
