After a calculated brawl kicked off the NHL contest between the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks over the weekend, veteran baseball columnist Peter Gammons sent the following tweet:
Calgary and Vancouver last night reiterated why the NHL is a minor sport

Gammons’ comment ruffled plenty feathers in the hockey community, including commentator Jack Edwards. Following a fight between the Kings and Bruins, Edwards called out his fellow media member.
Apparently he doesn’t want to hear any trash talk about his sport, especially from a league that just outlawed home plate collisions.
