File this under a bad idea gone wrong.

I know they're friends, but Mark, what are you thinking?

Domi used to regularly destroy guys twice his size...while wearing skates.

All I can say is I hope your charity is the Red Cross...and watch out for the uppercut!

Wahlberg 'officially challenged' him. Said they should do it at the ACC. But yeah, may just be for kicks.

Best quote: "We're gonna have to open the double doors so your head can fit through," quipped Wahlberg, 41, in his native Boston accent.

Wasn't Mark Wahlberg some street kid before he became famous? Pretty sure he punched some guy so hard he had to have his eye removed...

Yeah, I think Wahlberg can handle himself.

Domi is a natural born killer, though. Tough as balls.

The question is: Would being in the ring instead of on the ice level the playing field?

I think Domi might find it easier in the ring than on skates.

As in "Wow this is easy. I'm going to just walk over there and bop this guy in the face."

Whether this happens or not is irrelevant. It's just fun to contemplate. Anything to lighten the lockout mood.

The key is Domi is too stupid to realize that punches hurt.
Not sure about Mark's level of intelligence on the matter.

Not being on skates would hurt Domi's chances, not to mention the fact he's been out of the game a while. But he's probably still tough as nails.
Would be a interesting scrap between the two little guys.

One of Domi's best traits was being short and rock solid on his skates. Not so much of an advantage in a ring, I think it evens it up more but that's one fight I'd actually like to see.

A buddy of mine lived in the same area as Domi, as teenagers.

He says guys always picked fights with Domi, because he was a local celebrity, before he joined the NHL.

Domi would always whip their a$$es in short order. I think he can handle himself off the ice...

I would think that for a lot of enforcers in the NHL it would get frustrating to constantly get challenged outside of the rink. Any bar you go to, there is always going to be some drunk dumb schmuck wanting to take you on. For guys like Domi, fighting was part of their profession. I would be frustrated if people asked me to do parts of my job when I was out trying to socialize.

That being said, I'd like to see that tilt. Both guys grew up fighting, but I think that neither of them really lives the lifestyle they used to.

What a ???? joke. Benning is the worst GM in the NHL. I can't believe this guy is actually this stupid. This imbecile is going to drive this team into the ???? ground.

Being a great fighter on the ice doesn't really mean much off it. Most hockey players would get their clocks cleaned, after a round or two with an experienced boxer. With Wahlberg's boxing experience, I put my money on him.

Domi always reminded me of Nicky from Casino (1995). I know fighting on ice doesn't really translate to fighting off ice, but anyone who can hold his own against Probert (Probert throwing haymakers for 2+ minutes, no less) would be a scary person to fight on any surface.

Domi vs Rypien would be a fight for the ages.

Mark: "Hey Tie, how you doin? I like your bald head. I showed my bald head at the end of Boogie Nights, did you see that movie, Tie? Alright, well, say hello to your motha for me."

Can you imagine drowning AT a KK Rev concert?

I forget if it was BGL or Donald Brashear, but it was most certainly one of them who said something like "The thing about Tie Domi's head is, it's so big that you can't miss it, but it's made of concrete".
That is all you need to know about how this fight would go down. We're talking about two guys that eat railroad spikes for breakfast complaining about not being able to hurt the guy. Does anyone honestly think it matters how tough Marky Mark is? Marky Mark may be tough for a Hollywood Movie Star, but Tie Domi will break Wahlberg's hands with his face without blinking, and then likely break Wahlberg's jaw, eye socket and cheek bones with his hands, which are also reportedly made of stone.

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

If a fight between former Maple Leafs' tough guy Tie Domi, left, and actor Mark Wahlberg ever took place, who would you cheer for? (Canadian Press/CBCSports.ca)

Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg caught up with his buddy Tie Domi in Toronto on Tuesday and tempted the retired NHL enforcer with a friendly bout in the boxing ring.

"Hey, Tie Domi, I'm officially challenging you," Wahlberg, who co-produced and starred in the 2010 Oscar-nominated boxing flick The Fighter, told Domi when the tough-guy hockey player called him on his cellphone during an interview.

"Because there's no hockey, I'm officially challenging you to a fight at the Air Canada Centre. Are you in or not? …Don't duck me."

Wahlberg, who was in Toronto to talk about his upcoming film Broken City and do a youth charity event, then gave Domi the number of the downtown hotel room he was in with his entourage.

"We're gonna have to open the double doors so your head can fit through," quipped Wahlberg, 41, in his native Boston accent.
Hanging up, he then said: "He's been ducking me, so make sure you put it out in the newspapers."

Domi did indeed show up to the hotel room, giving Wahlberg a hug before exchanging mock fisticuffs. He told reporters the feisty Hollywood star often poses such challenges to him.

Wahlberg said the two have been friends since he was 18, when he met Domi on his first visit to Toronto to perform a concert with his rap group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

"He's fun because obviously he's a big hockey fighter but boxing and hockey is pretty different. You can't hold somebody's shirt and punch with the other hand, and there's no body protection, no equipment in boxing," said Wahlberg, a 2007 best supporting actor Oscar nominee for The Departed.

"I don't want to fight him on skates, I want to fight him in the ring. But I pose the challenge right now."
Wahlberg, whose mother is French Canadian and Irish, could skate if he had to, though.

"I hadn't skated for, like, 15 years and then I was doing Four Brothers and I had to skate again, so I started skating all the time and then we shot it up here, which was fun, so we'd go to a lot of the rinks," he said.

"It was funny because there was a hockey strike then. What's going on?"

Broken City, which stars Wahlberg as a fallen cop who runs into trouble when he helps out the city's mayor (Russell Crowe), opens across Canada on Jan. 18.
