Koci doesn't get into these lock out sweat punch fights. He has improved from last year. In interviews, he sounds like a little kid that is happy and excited to be playing hockey. It also seems like he skates and plays well enough to put big hist on people all the time. Even with the cut, I see it as a draw. He landed more shots. The cut makes Belak even in pretty good scrap for both guys.
A great fight by both warrior.
Big punches here were thrown and landed.
Koci jerseys Belak, but Belak didn't really give up.
A bit better show by Belak(convincing ending).
This could be a hard statement, but i think that Belak can be a champion.
If he gets enough good change.
You see his last year(also 00-01 season, 02-03 and -03-04) and he did a very good job his some fights.
Belak vs Brashear, Belak vs Peters
Belak vs McGrattan
Too close to call...great old fashioned toe to toe slugfest!! I think Koci landed a couple more then Belak, but Belak obviously connected on a couple of shots as evidenced by some blood on Koci, not that it phased him!! This Koci kid is awesome for hockey, and best of all for the Hawk's fans...too bad every team didn't have a guy like him!!
