Other Penalties: Maroon received a minor for boarding.
If shoulder pads were faces, this would have been a great fight.
The mutual jersey lock-ups turned this into a non-fight. Neither guy landed anything worth discussing. The first one that had the balls to shift to left probably would have scored big...didn't happen. Too bad, this should have been a good one. I agree 100% with Velvet fog...if you are not going to really get after an opponent in a fight you better find some really dirty options to protect your guys. The Wings have no fighters to protect Datysuk, Zetterberg and the host of mighty midgets that fill their roster...but they do have several guys that can take a knee, break a wrist etc....BETTMAN, you idiot...if that what you were hoping for...its coming to that.
This is a good example of why fighting is stupid (not that I don't like fighting, but it has become stupid). Maroon taking liberties with the boarding. Goon from EDM formally requests a fight with Maroon. Maroon formally accepts. They jersey grab and jab with a few wild swings and misses (like just about every fight). Was retribution exacted for the boarding? No. Did Maroon have a deterrent either before or after the boarding? No. But what if Gazdic or someone else cross-checks Maroon in the face as he is skating away? Breaks his nose, bloodies him, maybe knocks a tooth out. Ok, maybe that's a little much for a standard boarding. So maybe instead someone takes a double-handed slash to the back of his knee/calf. To me, that's a lot more impactful and meaningful than a stupid dosey-do fight. Sure, it would negate the impending power play. Ok, so maybe wait until later in the game if the game is decided or do it when the refs aren't looking. Then if Maroon comes looking for a fight because of it, then have Gazdic oblige and have the same stupid fight, but at least you got a nasty slash in and Maroon knows why.
Gazdic does a good job enforcing here as he addresses the hit. Both men keep each other outside the combat zone resulting in a harmless Draw.
gazdic tried to enforce things but to my surprise he didnt have answer to maroon's defensive stance....draw
Other than a couple of jersey jabs from each contestant, nothing at all landed here. Nothing more than a draw in a glorified square dance!
When two alligators fight.
Disappointing fight. I expected Gazdic to mop the floor with Maroon. Instead, it was just a continuous spin cycle. Neither really landed anything, although you could tell Gazdic wanted to, whereas Maroon just wanted to survive. Gazdic is not the fighter he was in his rookie year.
gazdick here for sure...slight win, but shud have easily taken out this buffoon! gazdick has lost his touches now..most of his wild punches don't even land anymore , the force has LEFT luke! ot: where the phuq is mcGrattan? long retired?
Nurse is a pussy for watching Maroon skate right by without a tap or a look
Days of toe to toe are over. Now we have spin cycle hybrid with duck n chuck. Not entertaining at all. Days left off fighting are numbered.... Go with Luke I guess and a 3. Nothing landed
No damage done either way. Maroon used his reach to stay on the outside and not allow Gazdic the ability to tee one up.
I will give the edge to Gazdic for throwing thirty none connecting windmills to maroons five. Gazdic should have been able to drop Maroon but caught nothing but air as maroon just kept his arm out.Very disappointing fight! I would have liked to have seen Getzlaf drop his mitts with the young Nurse.He would have beaten bad,real bad!
I hate visors.......
Gazdic not the animal he was a few years ago Not much landed
A well placed jersey grip and a freakish reach combine to allow "Ultra" to escape the Gazdic onslaught semi-unscathed Meanwhile back at the ranch another as yet to be determined Oiler shows true but unmerited fear as he "non-reacts" to the obvious boarding of a teammate by letting "Ultra" skate away completely unaddressed
'hockeyfights'.com Hit from behind and forget about the puck. Give a jersey jab and duck, duck, duck.
Started off with some nice enforcing Ended in a weird jersey grasp from each guy I guess Gaz on merit and the finale Like previously stated Gaz should've whipped Maroon
And the air between them takes a vicious beating..............
if they were in prison, Maroon would be tossing Gazdic's salad right now...
A swing and a miss and another swing and a miss....whoa and another swing and a miss, ladies and gentlemen EVEN THE TOUGH GUYS CAN'T FIGHT ANYMORE!!! Bring back McGrattan
bunch of swings and misses for 45 seconds until it looks like gazdic clips maroon the buffoon.
Giving Gazdic the slight edge for the unbridled aggression. Maroon fought a smart fight and kept Gazdic at distance with a locked-out left arm
What the fuck was the linesman trying to do at the start of the bout ?! Score draw bore 👊 😕
I hate when Gazdic wins but he barely eeks by here
if only Gazdic would wear one of those bobbly JOFA helmets ala Teemu, then we could call him 6'2" lookin like Gazoo... but alas.. the 'Maroon' did ok for 2/3rds of the tilt before the power returned & Luke remembered this guys pretty much paper-mache after a few connects. decent brawl, all flailing aside.. #20 FTW
the guy was always leaning away from tha gaz gaz here for sure
Gazdic slight edge
For all of the crap we've been exposed to this year, this was a good one in spite of all the missed bombers being thrown by both. Slight edge to Luka for manning up for a teammate, and landing on top. WIN Gadzig.
Never seen so many punches miss,, I lost count.... at least Maroon can play a little hockey ...
Two big fellas go at it and nothing really lands. I'll give Maroon the nod for hanging in there against a better fighter. Not much to see here boys.
Whole lotta nuttin goin on...
nothing really connecting, draw
Has Maroon ever won a fight?
Gazdic really wanted to land some punches here, and he threw a lot of them, but this "fight" still just barely elevated above the "boring as fuck" level. Winner Gazdic for that ridiculous look on his face
Ok, props to Maroon for not hiding Like a poopskadoodle. He actually tried to fight the Gazdic man. I would give this to Luke simply for being more aggressive, but a crap fight with nothing landing nonetheless. Haven't commented in a bit, simply because there aren't any good fights happening this year. Really sad. It makes me want to smear fecal matter all over Gary Bettmans office. Good day gentlemen
Why in the world would anyone voter this anything other than a draw? Are you guys that desperate to have a HW champion? Good grief. Gazdic didn't land a single good punch and neither did Maroon. Typical garbage, new NHL "fight". DRAW- may gawd, call it what it really is.
Not much of a fight. Not many punches landed. But the ones that did came from Gazdic. Winner Gazdic. By the way notice Gazdic has no visor! All of you that whine about it all the time take note!
