It actually happened.
This fight took place early in the 2001-02 season according to Hockeyfights.com.
We don't know what's more pathetic; Melichar's fighting ability or those hideous red Sabres jerseys.
EMPTY NETTER ASSISTS
-The Penguins' Web site has some schedule wallpapers available. (Kudos to The Sidney Crosby Show for spotting that.)
-Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro sounds like he's ready for a new season.
-Today's NHL owner with some legal issues is the Islanders' Charles Wang.
-In case you missed out on Ben Roethlisberger's Denali, Devils forward Zach Parise has an old Tahoe up for sale.
-Former Flames forward Stephane Yelle signed with the Bruins.
-The Canadiens are investigating playing an outdoor game in 2009.
-The Sabres added two minority owners.
-Former Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin will not make up his mind on coming back to a NHL injury list in 2008-09 until after the season starts.
-Capitals prospect Chris Bourque, the son of NHL hall-of-famer Ray Bourque, is determined to play in the NHL this season.
-Former Lightning goaltender Pat Jablonski suffered a back injury while body surfing. By the sounds of things, Jablonski was surfing off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico the same day Hurricane Gustav was doing its thing. Charles Darwin not available for comment.
-The Predators will only have 55 games on local television next season.
-Here's another reason to love the Stanley Cup: It gives you an excuse to skip school.
-The NHL ruled Oilers general manager Kevin Lowe did not tamper with Ducks forward Corey Perry.
-Canucks enforcer Darcy Hordichuk won't be hanging out with Michael Vick anytime soon.
-If the Ducks want to bring back Teemu Selanne, they need to clear some room under the salary cap.
-The Coyotes will only have 61 games on local television next season. If the NHL wants to help some of its struggling teams in non-traditional markets like Phoenix, Nashville, Miami or Raleigh, it might want to figure out a way to get more games on local television. Having fewer than 75 games available on a local affiliate is sad. Could you imagine the Penguins or the Wild or any Canadian team not having a game available on television in some fashion?
-It didn't take former Islanders goon Chris Simon long to show off his "talents" in the KHL:
-Former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins forward Darcy Verot displayed some of his abilities too:
-Former Hurricanes forward Jeff Hamilton signed with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.
