That was a very good fight. Early on the both landed a shot at the same time. Phaneuf's shot was better. Doan looked a little stunned, but he hung in there and got back in the fight. Later Doan lands a nice upper cut and takes over to edge Phaneuf. I think that both of these guys are easy to dislike unless they are on your team then you love them.
I'm here in Phoenix but I thought it was a draw. Phaneuf landed two right away but Doan landed a couple as it went on. I don't dislike Phaneuf, but he did seem ready to bail at the end. Doan doesn't drop the gloves much anymore, but he still is a tough guy.
Its funny how little people that post in these reviews know about hockey. Dion "picks" weak players to fight? His last 3 fights he got challenged. And Doan is NOT a finesse player!! And to the people who call Phaneuf a goon... Hes 22, been in the all star game and was 3rd in rookie of the year voting. Not to mention his ability to score... but ya hes a goon..? Its actually funny to read the dumb things these "hockey buffs" say in these dumb reviews.
People have been trying to appoint Phaneuf the new Scott Stevens since he was a Junior. He has the occasional big hit but he defnately is no Stevens when it comes to dropping the gloves. Called this one a draw, looked like it was going to be a good bout then turned into somewhat of a hugfest.
