Hockey is [in]famous for its inclusion of fighting within its sport. While hardcore fans have mixed to appreciative feelings toward fighting, the rest of the world isn't paying too much attention to the fighting.* Then a line brawl happens, and everyone is watching and saying their two cents. Here's a look at some of the best (?) line brawls in hockey.
