When Simon Despres decided to fight with Evander Kane, I didn't think it was the best idea. He held his own, but I can't say I think the results would be the same if the fight were to happen on multiple occasions.
The fight started as a result of Marc-Andre Fleury taking a shot at Mark Scheifele
Reasons why Simon Despres is a maniac:
1. Evander Kane has destroyed Matt Cooke in a fight before
2. He took his helmet off to fight Kane
3. Through all of this (before getting hit pretty good), he was smiling and laughing at Evander Kane
I think fighting is dumb, but a trade off of Simon Despres for Evander Kane for 5+ minutes, i will never complain about that.
