Hard to score this one because of the ****ty camera work. At first it looked like Iggy got his ass handed to him and the different angles showed him landing two lefts before the jersey. If the lines men would have gotten there I would have gaven it to Mitchell but it went on and Iggy came out as the winner. Sorry guys. The cameras ruined this fight.
The way I see it - as soon as Iginla got his jersey off, Mitchell all but turtled by going down right away - OUT OF FEAR! Anyone who can't respect Iginla's talent and toughness doesn't know a thing about hockey! Remember his fight with the much bigger Hatcher in the '04 Playoffs!?!
Sure he's lost a few - he also takes on guys much bigger than he is. Regardless - he's won way more than he's lost!
I never thought Willie could be a tough guy. I knew Iginla could fight. I think Willie gets the W for this fight, because Iginla just hit when he was down at the end of the fight, when the refs were breaking it up. Where is the honor in that?
How is Iginla throwing a punch while Mitchell is on his knees any worse than Mitchell throwing punches while Iginla is blindfolded by his jersey? Mitchell thought he was hit from behind and confronted Iginla. Iginla offered him a chance to settle things ( as Mitchell stated in an interview). Close fight! (p.s. Is there an "ignore" button for people who abuse their caps lock? Also, Ted...you need to think before you type. You get my vote for "dumbest comment ever" on this board!!)
