no whining allowed... this was great hockey violence as two much maligned fighters tear at each other in a satisfyingly bloody tussle... Tootoo w/the ragdoll ending as he throws the Frenchman into the corner like a busted parlay ticket... #22 FTW
Any time Roussel gets knocked to the ground is a 10 in my books.
Very well summerised von swine. Nice ending to a quality scrap.
Roussel gets taught not to bring slappy hands to a fist fight. Will it sink in? It remains to be seen.
good fight.i never thought roussel would fight tootoo and that he would be the one who wanted it. it's a shame that roussel bailed.but to his excuse he had really bad grip on tootoo from the start.he was doing really well though, also made that little fukker bleed to my great joy. win tootoo
TooToo takes a PooPoo on that one guy who will not be named. He was doing ok with him until he got punched out by the Native Buzzsaw. Love it!
Win Tootoo although he ate a short uppercut the bloodied him. Let's not get frothy here and describe this as a KO. But it was a KD win for Tootoo. Say what you will but if there were more guys like Roussel, the NHL would be much more entertaining. The guy plays with heart.
Nice punch right at the end.
Third great fight of the night. 2nd tko. My kind of hockey!
Toots to much power got jumped but once he got his feet planted it was Toots doing work!
LOL I selected "Kind of close" to be nice. Let's face it we all knew Roussel would get killed by Tootoo in the end.
Although this wasn't quite at the McQuaid vs Martin level. Yet another great tilt on what may turn out as the best quality fight night of the season! Tootoo who shows a glimpse of what Hawks fans wanted when they picked him up. Against Frenchie too for brownie points. Tootoo KD win & 6.
two tough boys doing thier thing. Nothing at all against Roussel but you gotta love Tootoo. Pound for pound one tough SOB. Tootoo and a 6.
Drew blood on Tootoo but he got the final say (TKO).
What is Tootoo, like 5'9? Damn tough. Here he channels his inner Stan Jonathon and delivers the coup on a game opponent. Agree with other comments, I like players like Roussel that play with heart. A little dirty, but that's hockey. Win some, lose some, but always show up
Yes. This makes me happy. They finaly put him in and he delivers. 22 wins this with the ko that sends roussell into the fetal position.
If you voted for Tutu I don't know what fight you were looking at. Tutu ate too many of Frenchie's close-in knuckle sandwiches to get the nod here. Gets in 1 shot late but not enough for the W. Tutu is one of my favorite fighters. Good, tough, honorable fighter who is respected by his peers. Frenchie didn't want to fight but did enough for a draw. Draw, 5.
Nice bout. I know everyone on this site hates Roussel so I think the voting is a bit off. 22 with the win but ends up with a bloody beak. Didn't like how Roussel cowered like a sissy after hitting the ice.
Roussel gets knocked down and turtles, love it.
Roussel gets run over by the Choo Choo Man !
All Tootoo, but Roussel isn't really a fighter, not sure why he continues to think he is?
Roussel bloodied Tootoo a little but most of his punches looked like they were soft or just misses. Tootoo hit Roussel twice real good the second ending up in a TKO. Glad to see it. I hate Roussel. Never was a Tootoo fan but he's a Hawk now so I have to live with that.
Tootoo with the big KO... Roussel was winning up until that point. Glad to see this fight end the way it did, I can't stand Roussel. I'll give it a 5
You can't turtle after taking your first solid shot and get a W in my book. I also hate Roussel more than any other player in the league so there's that. A biased 5 & Tootoo win.
2 guys who I admire for the way they play the game, abaolutley love tootoo nu nu nu nu, great scrappy doo here, the more I see roussel the more I like him even tho he's French, but good stuff all around!
Close fight. Roussel landed some good shots. Tootoo gets the win with the knockdown.
#22 makin me proud
22 puts his head down and throws hard. He is a tough little man
When Roussel ends up on his butt, the hockey world wins. Roussel bites off more than he can chew and Tootoo shuts him up in style. Night night.
Tootoo sends Roussel to la la land!!!
Kiss the ice, Pussel...
The former Predator Tootoo owned Roussel, Unanimous decision here!
good to see, loved it.
Antwan bit off a bit more than he could chew there but did well to hang in untill the end. . Win tootoo. The bald dude at the end seemed to like it
Tootoo knocked the frenchman on his tootoo. Very sad when tootoo at 5'9 is your tuff guy. Hawks are soft european girls. They will be playing golf in mid april.
Roussel was ko'd!
I was very happy to see Roussel finally get caught with a good shot and then turtle for his life He's been a thorn in the Hawks side for years and numerous other teams but never seems to catch a really clean punch to the face. Big ups to Tootoo!
Tootoo with the knockdown.
Roussel was hitting players without the puck and Q sent in Tootoo and he went after Roussel. I think a tall tale sign of Tootoo knocking Roussel down was him turtling at the end of the fight. Tootoo took some shots, but out fought Rousel hands down.
22 is a tough bastard. Love way he dusted off his hands afterward, job completed. For those that say no KO, look again. Roussel got rocked by that last punch.
Roussel never had a chance to win this. He got one good shot in early and then was dominated by the gift of TooToo.
Awesome the way Tootoo knows to keep the opponents head away from the ice as they go down as to not cause serious damage
Toots did a really good job
good fight tootoo take control midway through the bout big punch to seal the deal
TOOTS kicked azz once again!
Pound for pound toughest fighter I've seen. Tootoo is a mini monster, been doing this for years to dudes of all sizes.
THE HIGHLIGHT of the game .....Roussel getting RAG - DOLLED and covering up begging for mercy ! I have been patiently waiting for this for a LONG time ! I only wish Jordin had the skills needed to be in the line up on a daily basis ...IN the old NHL he did ! I saw a feature on TOOTOO and his family a few years ago ...have the utmost respect for him ...even more now that he is a HAWK !
Totoos nose got the worst of it
The funniest part of this message chain is the Blackhawks fans celebrating a knockdown by their "enforcer" of a smaller skater. The Blackhawks remain the softest team in the league which is why they continuously get beaten by the tougher teams during the Cup. Let's not anoint TuTu the baddest dude in the league until he can protect his ice fairy teammates (Kane and Toews) from the likes of Big Bad Ryan Reeves.
Did I watch the same fight as everyone else??? TooToo landed a single punch at the end and even that was much closer to a glancing blow than a TKO. Roussel knew when he answered the bell that he had a dance partner who is the 21st century incarnation of the mighty Stan Jonathan but he did it anyway. Give me a guy like Roussel who never backs down and never changes his game and can skate and bring energy to the game every night over a JT who sits every other game and has no offensive skills whatsoever. Roussel with the win, going to be hard get the blood off of Jordin's TuTu. Not sure who Golikoski Sucks is but he seems to be spot on when he posts!
Blood come from for the skin of Tootoo so the Hawks loose , only one punch from Tootoo many from the Frenchie , it's clear for me .
Felt like most of Tootoo's punches missed until that last tko blow. Other then that I thought Rousel had the better of it as far as connecting. Thus I gave it a draw despite the big blow to finish it by Tootoo. He was leaking a bit after all.
Edge Tootoo late.
Roussel acting like a little girl as usual.
Tootoo does what he does best and gives Roussel a lesson, albeit he did jump him a bit ;)
Roussel lands a few softies early. Then the indian decides to enjoy frog legs for a mid-game snack. A 2 point knock down ends this one. TooToo too, too much for Antoinette.
Perfect end to a fight where I couldn't decide who I wanted to see lose more. Tootoo got his dumbass face smashed and AR got dropped :) all good things.
Tootoo drops Roussel. A crying shame.
left hook KO
There's no quit in Tootoo! He keeps firing despite a slow start and gets the KD win over Roussel.
Roussel lands more punches and Tootoo ends up going to the locker room for repairs afterward. But. I can't give the W to a guy that got dropped like Roussel did at the end. Draw.
