Crap fight between 2 visored goofs. Typical new NHL fight right there. BOO

Posted by Sasky001 on October 10, 2008 at 07:29 PM

Only in vancouver would the "fans" chear your name after an embarrassing show like this. Bernier wanted nothing to do with Phaneuf and held on for dear life. He will fit in nicely with the other pansies on the team (Kesler, Burrows, Mitchell, Ohlund, sisters, etc, etc.)

Posted by tank10 on October 10, 2008 at 03:38 AM

A couple of huggers who wear visors. Stupid.

Posted by epstein88 on October 10, 2008 at 07:51 PM

hugfest, if you drop the gloves lose the visor!

Posted by desertwarrior on October 10, 2008 at 04:00 PM

looked like a ps2 nhl 2004 fight

Posted by Bigmurf8758 on October 11, 2008 at 10:30 AM

YAWN! Hugfest. nothing really to see, props to Bernier to come to the aide of Sedin. Play was exciting until they dropped gloves, another big hit from Phaneuf

Posted by tleahey on February 15, 2009 at 04:49 PM

hate seeing visors fighting...take your hoods off boys...the nhl is the no hit league...even announcer thinks its okay to 'defend' a guy who skates with his head down...

Posted by Rude Dog on October 10, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Too much hugging. I thought I was watching "dancing with the stars"...but give Bernier credit for coming after him. Crowd was chanting his name which was cool.

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on October 10, 2008 at 04:43 AM

Nice hit by Phaneuf. Bernier impresses me by standing up for his teammate, especially since he's not a fighter. However, they both wear visors and there wasn't much going on, so it's hard to call it much of a fight at all.

Posted by Tony Esposito on October 10, 2008 at 10:45 PM

Nice visors.

Posted by Franchise on October 29, 2008 at 10:24 PM

Hugfest, but then again its Dion. Draw.

Posted by The llama on October 10, 2008 at 12:26 PM

Draw...Dion with a nice open ice hit.. Hockey 101---KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!!!

Posted by wildonefan on October 10, 2008 at 07:12 PM

both tied each other up pretty well in this one.. draw.

Posted by bleight14 on October 10, 2008 at 04:23 PM

draw, good hit though.

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 10, 2008 at 03:01 PM

Nice Stevens style hit to start things off, and, however misguided the effort, props to Bernier for responding, despite it being a clean hit. Gotta love those old-new Vancouver uniforms. The original 'Dale Tallon'' colour scheme was a winner the first time out.

Posted by jealeman on October 11, 2008 at 04:19 AM

Why does everyone get their panties in a knot whenever a clean open ice hit is delivered? I miss the old NHL sometimes... Besides that, this was a hugfest. No winner here. DRAW.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on October 10, 2008 at 12:39 PM

Props to Bernier for standing up for Sedin, Celine lands a nice shot in the begining bu thats it........ Bernier sholdnt be the guys having to do this, granted he was on the ice and did the right thing but Hordi was invisible last night

Posted by Juha82 on October 10, 2008 at 05:48 AM

DRaw, lame show. No good punch landed here.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on October 10, 2008 at 08:55 AM

Hugging contest, Both players wearing a visor wow

Posted by Humper on October 10, 2008 at 05:19 PM

Draw because nothing happened. Bernier showed moxie by jumping in, then lost it by hugging. What, no smoochin'?

Posted by BuffSabs76 on October 10, 2008 at 09:27 AM

With all of the tough guys Vancouver now has, it was to bad Bernier had to be the one to step in... wish he did that more last year with Buffalo. Good hit by Dion... Draw

Posted by Stretcher on October 10, 2008 at 02:05 PM

Nice hit. Not worth "fiighting" worth though.

Posted by joshuafangca on November 29, 2008 at 11:56 PM

kind of crappy

Posted by bgdadyg on October 10, 2008 at 11:37 AM

made props for bernier for stepping up

Posted by caps05 on October 10, 2008 at 01:55 AM

Phaneuf lays out one of the Sedin boys with a big, clean open-ice hit in the Calgary zone. As Bernier sees this go down, he immediately goes over and challenges Phaneuf and they drop the mitts. Phaneuf looks like he's got the edge at the beginning, but as the fight continues, Bernier gets some shots in. I'll call it a draw.

Posted by henke88 on October 10, 2008 at 11:26 AM

finally the Sedin twins have a stand up guy that even can challenge guys like Phaneuf, although not much of a fight but still Bernier showed what happens if you mess with the twins this season, great hit by Phaneuf by the way :D

Posted by stlbluz on October 14, 2008 at 08:06 PM

Phaneuf is the biggest chump I have seen in a very long time. Yes, he is one the best hitters in the league, but every time he hits someone, he usually runs off the ice for fear he might have to fight someone other than Bernier. Actually, I am a lillte surprised he didn't turtle in this matchup....... Slight edge to Bernier

Posted by Sam1410 on October 10, 2008 at 01:43 PM

Not much of a fight - great hit by Phaneuf and nice to see Bernier stand up for his teammate, but he wanted nothing to do with actually fighting and held on.

Posted by blackgoldfan on October 11, 2008 at 12:14 PM

big hit gotta love it. bernier does the right thing but really doesn't want any of dion and hangs on for life. btw lose the visors

Posted by Kesler on January 03, 2009 at 05:04 PM

Not Really As Much Of A Fight As A Wresle.

Posted by Daracefan on October 10, 2008 at 12:49 PM

wrestling match

Posted by gdameo on October 13, 2008 at 12:44 PM

I agree with Goody2, Phaneuf did got a couple of good uppercuts. Had to give him a win.

Posted by goleafsgo12665 on October 24, 2008 at 10:53 PM

Phaneuf got a few uppercuts. For the most part, looked like they were dancing.

Posted by PAYDAY on October 15, 2008 at 05:52 PM

Huggy Bear-nier should have skated the other way. Win Dion.

Posted by BigMoses on October 10, 2008 at 09:27 PM

Bernier fights scared, wouldn't open up at all. Next time...

Posted by tbone0924 on October 10, 2008 at 11:01 AM

Nice of Bernier to stick up for his teammate. Too much holding.

Posted by TBLightningGuru on October 10, 2008 at 04:48 PM

thats what you call a pussy fight. neither took off their visors.. LAME

Posted by Clockerchops on October 10, 2008 at 07:41 PM

why are the cameras so slow getting to the action? this happens all the time it seems.....

Posted by chad420 on July 24, 2009 at 09:46 PM

sick hit...suck fight ..draw... a 3

Posted by penguinsfan123 on October 10, 2008 at 07:22 AM

lets hope for better

Posted by Goody2 on October 10, 2008 at 11:56 AM

I have to give Phaneuf the edge in this one. Looks like he landed 2-3 good uppercuts at 0:44, 0:46 and maybe 0:47 to bring the fight to an end. Nice hit too.

Posted by kkokolis178 on October 10, 2008 at 08:07 AM

Phaneuf got a couple good shots in but still not a very good fight.
