both dudes go for the quick jab and then set to it,..the rest is what 'hockey' needs in this day and age...not just ham fisted mechanics, but guys at the top caring enough about their squad to risk breaking a hand. that's the old way, and the RIGHT way... going w/a D, even tho big Joe prolly 'won' this fight...
other teams and star players take notice; the Cup is what ALL of you dicks are fighting for, EVERY step of the way. dig it!
I like how Robidas gives jumbo an "excuse me, let me get out of your way" pass. I wouldn't say Thornton "dominated" although that super so-mo helped create that impression and after the camera work on the last two this one looked like a main event.Joe still wins
Great scrap! I give the edge to Jumbo Joe with the brain rattler at the end, but the respect goes to both of the fighters for dropping the lids. Its become something all to infrequent these days. Gave this one a solid 7.
Joe landed the biggest punch of the fight, which ended it. Clear win. Makes Benn look lame for people to make false stories about how he won. Joe is bigger and he won, no shame for Benn. That Thornton missed some punches doesn't make it a draw.
"When the Bruins traded Joe they wanted him to do more of this to be like Lindros. Still one of the dumbest trades for the Bruins."
Bruins ended up flipping the players in that deal to be Seidenberg and Ference. Thornton never won a cup nor scored 30 since leaving Boston, so not an awful deal.
