When the Montreal Canadiens acquired George Parros last July, many hoped he’d make a huge impact with the Habs right away. Just not like this...anything but this—him getting concussed when his head hits the ice in a fight with Toronto Maple Leaf Colton Orr.

It was unlikely that a guy whose career high in goals was five would do anything positive with his hands other than fight.
