No clear winner
go hardcore fight
Two big men, not willing to give an inch, and in the process, fighting to a textbook draw.
JS had a lot of little scoring blows, RI had a few that scored as well. I was leaning JS when I first watched it, but I'm calling a draw based on the RR trax over Jody's eye when he returned to the bench after this one.
Great scrap by both guys! Not very many shots landed by either one i'm calling it a draw. Oh and its +6 and raining/snowing here in NS ;)
Very good fight by two of my faves. Lots thrown and yea, a lot missed but enough connected to make it worthwhile. I was leaning Ivanans but after watching again I go with a draw.
Nothing settled here. Draw
Two big guys with both landing decent shots. Draw
Solid Draw and a great fuking fight....
Good fight, Draw
If you want to see something close to a 10, b.t.wilson, check out the 2/4/94 fight between Probert and McSorley (if you haven't already).
Shelley got more lefts in. Ivanans landed a solid right. Two heavywieghts who really know how to scrap. Draw. Final Score: Sharks 3 Kings 2 SO
good scrap. not too many big hits though
Not many landed. Good effort from both. Love the slow-mo replay. Draw.
Good scrap. Shelley had some good punches in early but by the end it was close.
Shelley is doing well in San Jose!
Draw. Ivanans will be a Leaf soon I think.
Good HW battle...DRAW.
well its minus 45 in Winnipeg today and this is my loan highlight of this miserable day....now this was a fun hockey fight to watch....very spirited and i would call this dead even draw well done boys!!
Attention all heavyweights. Pay close attention as this is how it is suppose to look. DRAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. Ivanans had the one harder punch, but all in all a draw. Great hockey fight from a former tough guy in Hartford.
Good fight.....very even
Draw plain and simple
Good fight. No clear winner, but a good heavyweight scrap for sure.
big time bout..... Draw.... not many players land the bombs, except maybe Boogard.
GAVE A DRAW BECAUSE IT WAS GREAT AND NO ONE REALLY DOMINATED.
Draw. Good fight.
Tough to find a winner here. Both hung well. Draw. Ivanans is just plain tough. Shelley looks like the fighter he was three years ago. He must love San Jose.
I would have like to have seen that last big Ivanans swing land.
Very entertaining fight. Draw all the way!
Gotta call this one a draw.
Back and forth in close, no Peters and Janssen routines with the long range shots--this was a heckuva good fight between Shelley and Ivanans.
Pretty good fight
good fight 2 big boys going at it i got say this one was a draw
IF Ivanans would have connected with that one upper cut he may have gotten the win and possible KO. But he didn't and the fight was dead even to me. Very entertaining. Usually when I vote draw its a crap fight but this one was good.
Great scrap, have to call it a draw. I'd like to know what on earth would get voted a ten around here, seems like even a real barn-burner will be in the 7.5 range... not that this one was a 10, but a good one no less.
Interesting Fight. Hard to call a clear winner, but it looked those two boys had a good one. That 'Jersey Jab' is really common now. I remember using it 15 years ago in junior and high school hockey. :D
clearly a draw. Anyone who thinks they can pull a winner out of this is insane...
Pure and simple good bout by two BIG BOYS draw.
Now that was a "Hell of a Tilt"...
I have to hand it to Ivanans the learning curve was very steep for him being a European player coming over to the bigs here. He would see more action if he were in the Eastern Conference but has a pretty good rivalry going with Parros and Shelley. Ivanans is so big and strong that he is not challenged very often and only a handful of the premiere heavies like Shelley will go with him. Another great fight by Shelley the Canadian Badass is back with a vengeance this year.
great heavyweight fight between these 2 guys.
Definite win for Shelly!
Shelley won by 53%-47%
Good scrap, ever so slight edge to Shelley.
Good fight. I actually thought the announcers did pretty well for a change
Gonna give a 10-9 decision to Shelly. He had a slight edge early and i thought held on until the end.
Shelly Shelly Shelly!!!!!
It was even during the first 25% of the fight, then Shelley controlled the next 50% percent, either by jabbing RI in the face annoyingly or by effectively redirecting his attempts to strike back. The final 25% was more even, when Ivanans started using his strength, but he never gets anything suficient enough through to take away Shelley's edge in the middle. If that one uppercut landed it would have been a differant story... but it didn't... so slight edge Shelley.
Very close. I think Shelley got a few more shots in for the slight edge.
I still can't believe that the Oilers passed on Shelley when he was open to the move. That leaves Stortini to protect our skill guys, YIKES!!!!!!
Shelly got the best shots in. I have to give this one to Shelly even though it was very close!!!
Great fight! Shellys back! I want to say draw which it was but im being a homer because you can go either way with the W.
Good scrap. I love how Shelley has nothing but high rated bouts this year. Still don't understand why he bleeds so much. strong fighter but man, I bet he bleeds when he washes his face!
Good scrap by todays standards, I'll give the edge to Shelley as he contacted the most and nice style on the left tugs then the right punch.
Close fight but Shelly clearly got the edge here. Knocking the helmet off is not easy. It takes a few good hits.
Can't see how Ivanans gets the majority of the W votes here... Did u guys who voted for him actually SEE the fight? Shelley clearly landed more punches and was the more active of the two. Stitches are overated in the NHL because more often than not, when ur in a fight, landing a good punch is 90% luck. Shelley with the clear W.
very slim slight edge shelly ivanans hung in there though
i give it to ivanans
i give edge to ivanans for the rights at the end of the fight.
Shelley had stiches above his left eye. Head snapping back does not mean the fighter got hit. Sometimes they just jerk back to miss it. Got to count swings that hit and damage. Parros and Westgarth have the reputation of getting hit alot, but their head jerk is dramatized by their long hair.
Slight edge to Ivanans
Shelly continues to impress me.. he's really stepped it up this year from the few fights I've seen of him.. at least compared to last year. Ivanans by an edge.. Of note.. The LA broadcast did a quick interview with Ivanans during the 2nd period right after he got out of the box... immediately after, they showed Shelly with a fresh butterfly stitch above his left eye. So apparently, one of those connected pretty good... probably at the .42 mark
good long battle. EDGE Ivanans .
Nice fight from both competetors, Ivanans loooks like land more and harder!!!
Nice effort by both. Looks like Ivanans lands more better shots to me. But not many more.
good heavyweight battle,ivanans with win,landed more and the more effective punches.
did you see that cross from ivans land and cut open shelly face, shelly pretty much gave up after that. ko in my book!
Shelly got a couple in, but mostly a bunch of glancing blows and jabs, but Ivanans got more good ones in and takes it in a very, very slight edge.
Ivanans with the edge, but not by much.
Another great fight between these 2 tough guys. Slight edge to Ivanans
ivanans landed harder shots and cut shelley, so ivanans with the win.
Good spirited bout. Draw.
Good slugfest. Both landed a few and missed a lot. But not bad nonetheless. DRAW.
Let's face it, the best fights are between the heavy weights. Shelley needs to start taking control of his fights like he did in Columbus. Taking nothing away from Ivanans though. This guy has the biggest hands in hockey. I wish he fought alot more last year but his hands were a mess. Alot of bombs thrown but none landed. Draw
well... definatley a good fight but i guess draw .. ivanans is my fighter GO KINGS Go
draw...real good fight..big ivan has improved
good tilt--two of the toughest guys in the league, hands down. draw.
hey, that was a good one, draw
Shelley did well at the beginning of the fight, especially with those little jabs the announcers remarked on, but Ivanans finished the fight strongly enough that I'm calling this one a draw... and one of the better draws you're going to see, I think.
good fight, but yeah i agree with tomales, a bigger format would be good for this one, screen is so tiny.
great fight... i wish ivanans would have connected that upper cut i love these two fighters
Admittedly, I'm a Sharks homer. But I kept replaying this in order to be as fair as I can be. If it's too close to call, I will go for Jody. But I watched closely the number of times the heads snapped backwards and it sure looked like (I wish that I knew how to watch these bouts on a larger format) JS got the edge by 3 significant blows. I sure do hope that many agree as it's always hard to see your guy out voted. At any rate JS, along with Cote, consistently puts on the best effort. Go Sharks!!!
Ivanans with the win
Edge Ivanans. This was far from a 7.4 scrap though, c'mon! It was an ok fight at best!
If I had to pick a winner, Ivanans. He got the best shot in. But by the closest margin.
