    Isn't it obvious that he isn't slapping him on this picture but just grabbing the jersey trying to put Staal on the ground? You don't grab someone with closed fists, do you? On other pics we can see closed fists drumming Staal's head.

    Some hockey fans just don't understand how fighting actually may look like. Watch MMA and you'll see Semin used legit hummer fist punches. Staal didn't get a single punch in and eated lots himself.

    Also if Staal wouldn't tried to get Semin naked then we maybe could see some interesting swinging.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Semin is a better fighter than Ovie (who isn't that great of a fighter though). There is just this X factor with Semin, he is too crazy, unpredictble, just too talented ;P

    I'm with you Cooper, hilarious. After the fight my roommate goes, "I hope they have a Donkey Kong outfit for him at the next practice."
