Let's Watch Donald Brashear Act Like An Idiot

The Rangers are off until Wednesday, and there will be plenty of time to write stressful posts about the stretch-run. So for now, let’s watch Donald Brashear do what he did best during his time in the NHL; attack vulnerable players. After proving his worthlessness with the Rangers, Brashear was traded to the Thrashers last offseason in what was a salary dump move for Atlanta and a way to get Brashear, whose contract would count towards the cap, off the Rangers’ roster. Brashear was soon after bought out by the Thrashers. He now plays in the LNAH, which is a small league in Quebec. The LNAH is essentially the closest thing to the movie “Slapshot.” The NHL averages 0.6 fights per game, whereas the LNAH has well over 3 fights each game. In this specific video, Brashear attacks the opposing team’s goalie, and later throws punches at another player while he’s down. His actions lead the the benches clearing. As you can tell from the video, Brashear is captain of his team. That alone should speak measures about how skill-deprived the league is. Brashear’s explanation for his actions? “Things got out of hand.” Nice to see that, even at 39, Brashear still will take any opportunity to violate the hockey player code-of-honor and cheap-shot the opposition. Thanks for the memories, idiot.
