HockeyFights.com Best Fights of the Half-Season

PITTSBURGH - OCTOBER 13: Deryk Engelland #5 of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colton Orr #28 of the Toronto Maple Leafs exchange punches during a first period fight that resulted in Orr leaving the game on October 13 2010 at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

This post was actually prompted by a conversation I had at a New Year's party:

Random person: "You know how you start watching a youtube video and you just get side-tracked and end up watching a whole bunch of unrelated stuff?" (Everyone except me nods.)

Me: "Not really. I start watching a video of a hockey fight and I just end up watching a couple dozen of them."

And there's no better place to watch hockey fights than over at HockeyFights.com.  Here are the eight fights that cracked an 8.0 fan rating since the beginning of the season:

1. 9.4 score - Eric Boulton vs John Erskine, Nov 14 - 51 seconds

2. 8.7 score - Krys Barch vs Cam Janssen, Jan 2 - 73 seconds

3. 8.4 score - Jarome Iginla vs Jamie Benn, Dec 23 - 65 seconds

4. 8.4 score - Steve MacIntyre vs Raitis Ivanas, Oct 7 - 18 seconds (KO)

5. 8.2 score - Zenon Konopka vs Daniel Carcillo, Oct 30 - 82 seconds

6. 8.2 score - Colton Orr vs Deryk Engelland, Oct 13 -18 seconds

7. 8.1 score - Patrick Kaleta vs Derek Dorsett, Dec 3 -17 seconds

8. 8.1 score - Darcy Hordichuk vs Shawn Thornton, Nov 18 - 46 seconds

So go ahead, waste 20 minutes of your life watching those fights, and let me know which one was truly the best.
