2 questions: Why was this fight ranked so high when i looked at it? Didn't see many good ones landed. Why are the Bruins good this year? it's really bothering me

Posted by Lister100 on December 19, 2008 at 10:41 PM

This looked more like a draw. I can't see why so many scored it Thornton. No big punches landed, no one threw more punches and nobody went down?

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on December 20, 2008 at 11:38 AM

lol. what was with the elbow pad on his hand though?

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 20, 2008 at 01:00 PM

Thornton a little better, gets the W

Posted by bruiser11 on December 19, 2008 at 12:24 PM

Easy win for thorton

Posted by brymaster1 on December 19, 2008 at 10:14 PM

Deveaux cant fight worth shit.

Good fight both guys threw some good punches but in the end i thought that Thornton did more damage.

Posted by bulldog85 on December 19, 2008 at 08:44 PM

lol the bruin fan must be taking notes from this rediculous anouncer, good fight considering thornton is a veteran heavyweight vs an up and comer, good tilt tho

Thornton wins this one. And to Bwsfan4lif. According to deveaux has 2 lbs on thornton. Hardly a massive difference You made it sound as if PJ.Stock beat up Boogaard.

Posted by hal29 on December 20, 2008 at 03:16 PM

hey reveran kane are you that blind or just ignorant.deveaux only has 2lbs on thornton where do you get your stats from,that just out right attention get your stats right.deveaux has a big weight advantage on thornton almost 30lbs and has 2 inches.height isn't as much of a factor as is weight.thats alot more to throw around he should of been stronger and handled thornton better but its tough thornton has some of the best bblance in the nhl as a tough guy...people please double check stats before making out bursts..thank you

Great job by Thornton. He is a very good fighter and takes on anyone.

Posted by DuckHawk on December 19, 2008 at 07:44 PM

All Thornton IMO, and for the record, I agree, a few pounds is no big deal, but 3-4 inches is...Good bout by a guy who seems to be heating up....Former GM in the house. Any signifigance?...hmmmmm.

Posted by blackgoldfan on December 20, 2008 at 12:04 AM

thorton putss deveaux throw the paces. and earns a "W".

Posted by kimocoyote on December 19, 2008 at 11:31 PM

Thornton clear win.. Deveaux lucky he kept the headgear.

Posted by Bruins29 on December 21, 2008 at 05:25 PM

Good fight. Thornton gets the edge on punches thrown and landed. He also appeared to be stronger on his skates than Deveaux,

Posted by Cid on December 19, 2008 at 11:35 AM

Thorts with the win but Deveaux hung in there and made it a contest.

Posted by coreyviking on December 19, 2008 at 09:39 PM

Giving away real-estate again thornton steps up against a bigger man and wins hands down

Posted by BsFAn4LIF on December 19, 2008 at 11:40 AM

Thornton with the win. The big guy takes a beating from the smaller guy.

Posted by Hendo67 on December 20, 2008 at 11:48 AM

Thornton continues to throw down, he's one of the best P4P. Thornton with the win, easy.

Posted by probiehawk24 on December 19, 2008 at 10:03 PM

This fight had a great start with both guys throwin hard. It turned into a wrestle but still a good fight. Thornton has always been an entertaining fighter through out his career. Deveaux still trying to prove he belongs in Toronto and I think he does. Thornton with just too many right hands and he gets the win

Posted by kazzie on December 23, 2008 at 02:55 AM

Thornton was dropping absolute bombs on Deveaux's skull.

Posted by robofthedead on January 09, 2009 at 09:41 AM

I was at that game, I saw this fight, in fact I was right there in the front row just next to those two little kids and their father. It was really cool to see Thornton duking it out with Deveaux especially where they were right there in front of me when it happened. I'm serious. You can totally see me sitting there in my Bruins jersey briefly at 0:46 and then again between 0:55 - 0:57.

Posted by bigjeezy777 on April 23, 2009 at 01:34 PM

lmao he gives him a noogie

Posted by Leafs2006 on December 19, 2008 at 10:35 PM

again....this Nesn announcer was abused by Dahmer or Manson...dale Arnold.....please come back!

Posted by bigdog2007 on December 28, 2008 at 08:00 AM

Why does Andrea "punching Bag" deveaux even try? He is a terrible fighter. He is a good hugger........NHL has Deveaux at 220 Thornton at 217....

Posted by jdhoff20 on December 23, 2008 at 09:47 AM

what out everyone shawn thornton gives a nasty noogy!!!!!!!

Posted by chelifisch on December 20, 2008 at 02:37 AM

Thornton wins but the announcers, awful. I understand you need to promote the hometown guy, but come on. That announcing was terrible.

Posted by tomales2 on December 20, 2008 at 04:46 AM

Noogie? Lol

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on November 12, 2009 at 09:30 AM

Deveaux was tough, but he's not in Thornton's class. Win for Shawn.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 04, 2015 at 12:01 AM

Thornton dominated in one of the best fights I've ever seen him have.
