I can't believe Taylor Swift gopt in a fight. The outcome (a season ending injury) was more than predictable. Stick to scoring 30-40 points a year and leave the fighting to the males.

to non tough guys from two non tough teams. figures some cheap shots would cause such a crap fight. but i give them props either way.. DRAW!

Posted by DARCY T on March 06, 2011 at 05:20 AM

hall jumped dorsett and then held for dear life..draw and gave it 2 and how come hall didnt get an instigator penalty???

Posted by s470dxqm on March 04, 2011 at 02:52 AM

I'm an Oilers fan and I don't think Dorsett did anything wrong here. Hall said after the game that it felt like Dorsett was taking it easy on him. Hall takes a lot of abuse on a nightly basis and after 60+ games he decided to see how he'd fair in a fight. He said after the game that it doesn't make him feel good having his teammates come in and rescue him. He wanted to show them he could fight his own battles. So he fought his own battle and lost. I respect him for doing it. The ankle injury is irrelevant. A fluke and nothing more. Hopefully Hall's okay but you can't put that on Dorsett.

.homer announcers know, just once i like to watch a fight without knowing where the commentators are from 3 seconds into the fight

Dorsett is a useless prick and the Oilers probably lose Hall due to what looks like a serious leg injury...shame

Posted by sedinfan on March 03, 2011 at 11:09 PM

I don't think he should fight Hall either and I hate the little pric*, but since Hall started it, what is he going to do. I watched this live and Hall looked like he injured his knee or something, I hope is is OK.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 04, 2011 at 04:39 PM

Mad Props to Hall for standing up for himself and not waiting for someone else to handle it for him. Too bad about the Knee injury. Best part of the video was Dorsett barking at the Oilers then eating the Ice. Classic

not much going on here.

Posted by GreatMurray on March 04, 2011 at 06:59 AM

Never get points for take downs from me. Dorsett gets slapped around by a guy who can fight so he runs a skilled player and hurts him with the BS hip throw.

Posted by bilbobaggins on March 04, 2011 at 08:04 PM

Rag doll session. Hall needs to go to boxing school....not Abdelkader's school. He fights like a girl. The boy needs to gain 20 lbs of muscle and come back a man next year.

Posted by Willy WILL on March 05, 2011 at 08:13 AM

Puss Puss Dorsett... gutless loser! Real cool going after Hall! Win Dorsett.. but he should play for the leafs being that cheap.

Posted by leeban on March 04, 2011 at 07:49 PM

Hall gets a guy with a blind sided head shot and Dorsett takes exception and gives him a nice hit in the boards. Hall like an idiot drops them and is now gone for the rest of the season with an injury. Hall should have gotten suspended for the blind sided head shot in the begining but .. again its hall. Win Dorsett though nothing conected.

Posted by mightyquin on March 04, 2011 at 07:04 PM

dont know how bad halls leg is but its a shame to be taken out by a lowly almost unskilled piece of crap like dorsett

Posted by idriveford on March 04, 2011 at 10:51 AM

I would think that the Oilers would have guys who could handle Dorsett, too bad that Hall have to do it himself. This is how injuries happen. Too bad for Hall.

Posted by b.t.wilson on March 03, 2011 at 11:37 PM

dorsett with the win, can't blame him for fighting either, hall did throw the first shot, even though dorsett went after him there. hope the kid is okay, not a good thing to see.

Posted by jlmcgui on March 04, 2011 at 05:21 PM

Hall fires the first elbow at Calvert in the beginning of the clip, Dorsett does what any policeman would do ... Hall accepts. Win for Dorsett, ever so slightly. Big loss for Hall if he's out for any length of time. Pick your spots rookie!

Posted by bruiser11 on March 11, 2011 at 12:04 AM

Hall shouldn't have tried it with Dorsett and that's not saying Dorsett is a beast by any means. Hall has much to learn about being in a scrap in the NHL. Just take your lumps and avoid further contact next-time Junior Taylor.

Posted by Jordybats99 on March 11, 2016 at 09:11 PM

Win Dorsett.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 04, 2011 at 04:55 AM

Hall goes from looking like Gretzky with the puck, to looking like Dorsett did against Strudwick, with the fists, as Mr. ''I'm gonna do something stupid...again'''' intentionally, and awkwardly throws him to the ice.

Posted by The Peach on March 04, 2011 at 03:44 PM

and that is why high priced skill players don't fight. a stupid injury for no good reason. don't get me wrong, it's nice to see the kid earn his GHH degree, but dorsett is a tough fireplug who can rag doll a scrawny teen like hall all day long. pick your spots better next time, kid.

Posted by tyrone on March 04, 2011 at 02:33 PM

If you would have shed the visor, then you wouldn't have hurt your leg, you dumba$$. You would have went down solely by a big right. Haha..

Posted by Towmater on March 04, 2011 at 12:08 AM

Come on people, I don't like Dorsett either but you actually think he should skate away after Hall drops his gloves? Then you all would be talking about what a p^ssy he is. Win Dorsett, in a fight he didn't start.

Posted by fernben8 on March 05, 2011 at 09:07 PM

At first I was asking WTF is Dorsett doing ? Though replay shows Hall instigating the fight. Can't fault Dorsett one this one,he was given no choice. A perfect example to why Superstars should not fight... now the Knee ! Hurts the team...

Posted by TommyGun29 on March 04, 2011 at 12:23 PM

Gotta give Hall can only take so much from an a$$ like Dorsett.

Posted by tommywantWingys on March 04, 2011 at 12:52 PM

nice dangle Taylor, stick to that.

Posted by koolpunch on March 03, 2011 at 11:18 PM

Can't blame Dorsett for fighting the kid. Just hope Hall's leg is OK... Nice of Dorsett to showcase his balance as he headed for the box...

Posted by Big_Goon on March 04, 2011 at 11:31 AM

Not much of a fight, win Dorestt.

Posted by LA KING FANATIC on March 04, 2011 at 11:30 AM

Taylor Hall is a dumb ass for messing with Dorsett and now having to take the rest of the season off possibly... Have one of your tough guys take him. Your job is S...K...I....L....L...their job is K...I...L...L We now know you have guts, now.... don't do that again

Posted by billy jack on March 04, 2011 at 01:33 PM

good to see hall have a go.but he might choose a lesser fighter.don't get me wrong dorsett is no behemoth,but he can throw down.and he gave hall his gordie howe hatrick.

Posted by staceyb on March 04, 2011 at 06:17 AM

Taylor Hall with the Gordie Howe Hat Trick and number one star of the game. But to fight Dorsett and injure your ankle? Coach Renney, you need to talk to that boy.

Posted by 1E21 on March 04, 2011 at 02:00 AM

Dorsett threw his check and skated about his business. Hall asked for it and got what he was looking for. It's his own fault about his poor little leg getting hurt. Can't blame that on Dorsett you D-bag haters. Sorry about your luck Hall. Stick to your skill. That obviously isn't fighting.

Posted by AZfromNJ on March 08, 2011 at 01:51 AM

I wanna believe Dorsett's tripping and injuring of a young star was accidental. Stars don't fight goons.......everything to lose and nothing to win. A good lesson for the rookie. Hope he's ok.

Posted by leecal on March 05, 2011 at 09:30 PM

Hall wanted it and got it. To bad about the knee, but I don't think DD meant to do that. Nice take-down by the ref at the end.

Posted by joeman on March 05, 2011 at 12:04 AM

Not a good decision to go after Derek. Hope that knee is ok young man.

Posted by rocky 1 on March 04, 2011 at 11:14 PM

Great going you fucking goon!When is the n.h.l. going to eliminate these fucking goons out of the league so that talented players don,t have to deal with this crap anymore1

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on March 04, 2011 at 12:17 AM


Posted by briggsy on March 03, 2011 at 11:01 PM

I give this fight to Hall...........cause I can. I hate the announcers...........i wonder if they have ever been in a fight? Dorsett is an honest scrapper..........he should not fight Hall you should always know who you are fighting.

Posted by gmr133 on March 04, 2011 at 12:07 PM

No winner. Nothing. Hall with an iffy check at center ice--had the BJ player actually taken the pass like he supposed to, it would have been a clear hit. But Dorsett starts chasing Hall all over the ice. Edmonton never should have let their franchise guy drop the gloves--somebody should have jumped thrid man in. And Dorsett belongs playing somewhere in the ECHL with Gillies. Waste of space on an NHL roster.

Posted by wannago_letsgo on March 03, 2011 at 11:10 PM

gave it a draw. I wonder if Dorsett felt as stupid as he looked after tripping over the linesman. As for a guy like doorknob fighting Hall I dont really think he had a choice there as Hall went after it.

Posted by Nesquik on March 04, 2011 at 03:12 AM

I almost want to give Hall the win because Dorsett fell over trying to get to the idiot box

Posted by Winnipeg Man on March 04, 2011 at 12:24 PM

Dorsett, you look like a joke going after a kid like Hall after taking on a guy like Strudwick. Full props to Hall for stepping up, but if you hurt a leg in a fight...just a sign you shouldnt fight, ask Steve Smith lol

Posted by chad420 on March 04, 2011 at 11:59 AM

Hall&Oates tries to dance but falls and stubs his va-jj

Posted by travist on March 03, 2011 at 11:14 PM

dorsett is a dink good for hall sticking up for himself but he needs to learn to fight. damn i like seguin but i wish the Bs got hall. hopefully his leg is ok...if not watch dorsett get beatdown during the next game.

Posted by muskokadangler on March 04, 2011 at 10:28 AM

Good showing by the kid he went a tuffy!!! Tommy gun >>>>> There will be no........MO......

Posted by PigIron on March 04, 2011 at 11:42 PM

Okay - Dorsett gets the dubya here! Actually redeemed himself in my eyes (not that he really cares 'bout my opinion)

Posted by Snoka on March 03, 2011 at 11:22 PM

I'm giving it to Hall just because Dorsett is a douche bag
