I got a good laugh out of the ref. "Hey morons, everyone's waiting, are you gonna do this or not?"

Posted by wannago on January 31, 2009 at 01:53 PM

That was pathetic.

Posted by Bad Dawg on January 31, 2009 at 05:33 PM

Rather disappointing, but maybe a prelude of things to come

Posted by BattleAxe13 on January 31, 2009 at 12:24 PM

Good to see Mac throwin again after Godard broke his face a while back. Draw, no one really had control or threw anything worth a damn.

Posted by Humper on January 31, 2009 at 04:32 PM

Thanks for wasting my time guys.

Posted by g_doubleu on January 31, 2009 at 12:07 PM

Big Dog's circling -- not much damage. The next five meetings should be good.

Posted by DARCY T on May 17, 2009 at 05:20 AM

typical boring heavyweight fight.draw

Posted by Wensinkfan on February 01, 2009 at 12:06 AM

Not really what I like in a fight. A lot of moving each other around with no real punches or winner. Draw.

Posted by Gunslinger on January 31, 2009 at 03:28 AM

A draw in a disappointing fight. Still have'nt seen MacIntyre light it up yet. This fight coulda, shoulda been better.

Posted by wildfan4eva on January 31, 2009 at 12:47 AM

Weak...both players playing too much defense, this fight is clearly a draw..any other vote =homers!! Yup...omorales is the first homer..I expect more and more from Edmonton!! The fight is is draw blind azz, when nobody lands anything..that means no winner!!

Posted by Franchise on February 01, 2009 at 08:46 PM

Draw. Not much to see here.

Posted by moneybags on January 31, 2009 at 09:29 AM

Posted by icecat121314 on January 31, 2009 at 12:45 PM

Not great, draw if anything

Posted by flyguy64 on January 31, 2009 at 08:05 AM

Horible fight, MacInyre was hanging on for dear life....... the boogie man is like George Foreman one punch and it's all over.

Posted by mikebflorida on January 31, 2009 at 01:28 PM

Again, 2 huge guys, 1 big disappointment.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on January 31, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Mac landed some solid body shots..... but its still a Draw. i knew some of you fuking retards we're gonna come on here and take a text book Draw where to guys dont want to give anything up and turn it into a i love Boogey voting BullSh!t........ most of you Douches wouldnt last a week in the forums with your Homer HorseSh!t.

Posted by SirYohans on January 31, 2009 at 11:47 AM

C'mon. No winner here. DRAW all the way with no good punches landing at all.

Posted by troyt on January 31, 2009 at 05:31 AM

Wild homer here and i say its a draw. I have been waiting for this fight for a while and it didnt live up to what i have hoped. No winner here any1 who votes for derek or steve are not watching the same fight as i am.

Posted by kalismkkr on January 31, 2009 at 12:26 AM

Neither was willing to receive a hit in order to deliver one. Draw.

Posted by bruiser11 on January 31, 2009 at 11:37 PM

boogaard couldn't do nothin with macintrye and macintyre couldn't do nothing with boogaard!

Posted by digitalroc on December 13, 2009 at 04:04 PM

Not a fan of MacIntyre, this one was a draw.

Posted by laclipper12 on January 31, 2009 at 12:38 AM

Not Much going on here...I love the linesman throwing his hands up at 0:25 wondering if they would actually go. Nothing really landed. MacIntyre's first fight since he got his face caved in by Godard.

Posted by MeLikeSemenko on January 31, 2009 at 12:23 AM

clear draw, nothing landing

Posted by blazers76 on November 15, 2010 at 09:37 AM

A pretty good fight. Draw.

Posted by Gforce33 on January 31, 2009 at 10:11 AM

"Homer Oil Fan" here with a vote for a draw. I was at the game last night and the atmosphere was great leading up to the big fight. The fight was actually kind of a dissapointment.

Posted by ryan whl fan on February 01, 2009 at 10:54 AM

good fight had potential to be a war but hey hugging and body shots works out to be a nice draw

Posted by shrk33 on January 31, 2009 at 02:09 AM

I hoped for better

Posted by joeye4 on January 31, 2009 at 07:48 AM

They both seemed tentative about going all out. Not a great fight to watch but it could have been with these two giants.

Posted by mike563 on January 31, 2009 at 08:53 PM

boogieman had his full draw

Posted by bouch19 on January 31, 2009 at 08:44 AM

I live in australia! Oil fan for sure! called home to ask about the fight...they said mac won...waited six hours to get the highlights! Thank you loyal fans of the art! Draw all day!! Linesmen piss off...let these guys go without forcing!!! The money fight of the year and they are pushing them to go?? They should be fined! Keep up the good work guys! Homers piss off.. this is a fighting forum not a fan website!!! BEAT IT!!!

Posted by siouxfan1 on February 01, 2009 at 06:27 PM

Nothing but a draw!!

Posted by Juha82 on January 31, 2009 at 06:15 AM

Draw, no good punches landed by either man.

Posted by blackgoldfan on January 31, 2009 at 01:11 AM

so two of the biggest in the west finnaly meet and well it was almost like they were scared of each other. and frankly i'ld be scared of either of them! big mac takes a big step after getting his face broke and looks like he's willing to go! good news for e-town! BTW DRAW. lookin for a rematch they have 4 more trys!

Posted by Truk on September 28, 2009 at 09:54 PM

Nobody was trying to hurt anybody here. They simply set-up for the big show. Steve even gives Boogie a nose honk at .55. If he can touch his nose and chin you bet he can hit it if he wants to.

Posted by bruins rule on January 31, 2009 at 08:03 AM

have to rate this one a draw.i have been waiting for these 2 to fight but this was kind of a defensive fight.

Posted by kimocoyote on January 31, 2009 at 12:33 PM

Straight up draw. I don't know how anyone could use the word "scared" when talking about two big men, that lace up skates and play in the NHL. I laugh when guys call men who play in the NHL names other than complimentary. .

Posted by BSTnougat on January 31, 2009 at 07:18 PM

took em long enough to get started. Disappointing from these two.

Posted by Clusterpucker on January 31, 2009 at 03:36 PM

Two big guns get it on, but neither gets the 'W'. Can't help feeling that, with 4 games between these two NW rivals coming up, this matchup is going to be repeated. Hopefully it'll be better next time.

Posted by HT1 on January 31, 2009 at 08:33 AM

Two big guys going at it. You can even see Ref ask them in beginning if they are going to throw punches. Kind of a draw but Boog got in a couple more that landed, maybe. I think the fight geared up the Oiler fans and not getting the Wild players going. The game before Oilers lost like 10 to 2 and fans even booed against their own Oilers so they needed a WIN and a Fight Win.

Posted by cumminspower on January 31, 2009 at 01:38 PM

This is a text book drw ppl.....I dont see how anyone can give Boogaard the win after his Stortini like hug at the start of the actual fight.

Posted by nhlofficialsblo on January 23, 2014 at 07:10 AM

linesman #61 is an absolute DOUCHEBAG

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 31, 2009 at 06:59 AM

Despite the fact that no big blows were landed, I actually didn't mind watching, what turned out to be, a pretty decent defensive scrap between two heavyweight pros.

Posted by Tony Esposito on January 31, 2009 at 12:55 PM

Liked the Linesman: "Get to fightin' boys" wanted to see some bombs though........Wasn't it Boogie who broke Mac's orbital?

Posted by KevMack on January 31, 2009 at 03:54 AM

Break helmets with his fists? OK Homer....

Posted by cotefan92 on January 31, 2009 at 10:43 AM

Wish I couldve seen more bombs thrown-draw

Posted by b.t.wilson on January 31, 2009 at 11:29 AM

Gotta go with a draw here. Boogaard is still such a beast, he'll just sit back all day waiting to throw that big gorilla right. Every time he fights you hold your breath to see if someone is going to die. Good job MacIntyre not letting that happen. p.s. guys this size are never, ever going to just open up and square go. You can't take one to give one because the second you take one its two days later. They're going to fight with defense at the front of the mind.

Posted by baracuda73 on January 31, 2009 at 02:10 AM

not bad best punches were body shots

Posted by mcpuck on January 31, 2009 at 11:42 AM

Boogey gets win with both head and body shots. Macintyre got some body shots in.

Posted by tyrone on February 01, 2009 at 09:13 AM


Posted by Dampland on January 31, 2009 at 04:01 PM

pretty crappy fight. Macintyre seemed to want to bear hug more than fight. Win BOOGAARD

Posted by bully756 on January 31, 2009 at 03:58 PM

props to mac for fighting boogard after having his face broken in his last fight by Godard. But still a pretty boring fight.

Posted by staceyb on January 31, 2009 at 05:00 AM

Pretty close fight, narrow edge to Boogaard.

Posted by allienmort on February 02, 2009 at 03:01 PM

Not much there. Spent more time in the pre-punch dance! Boogaard had a few more that landed, especially at the end.

Posted by Sportsdiamond on January 31, 2009 at 10:14 PM

Another hug fest, Let boogie fight and he would work any player in the NHL

Posted by hank65 on January 31, 2009 at 03:46 PM

boogaard was more aggressive and landed more, not an overly impressive fight. I don't know how anyone can say that Mac won this one, he looked very hesitant to go toe to toe.

Posted by Leafs2006 on January 31, 2009 at 08:02 AM

A slight edge to Boogey, landed a few more , but i had to flip a coin on a draw.......2 big guys, no damage done.

Posted by Jellyczar on February 01, 2009 at 04:19 PM

Should have been more exciting,,,,,

Posted by Dr.Jekyll540 on January 31, 2009 at 05:43 PM

Boogaard landed harder punchs

Posted by Goon24 on January 31, 2009 at 09:33 PM

I was really hoping for more in this fight and i bet macintyre was thinking about boogaard crushing fedoruks orbital and then thought about godard crushing his orbital i think macintyre was scared. win boogaard

Posted by MNBonecrusher on January 31, 2009 at 09:38 AM

Slight edge to Boogaard for being more active and at least willing to open up a little. Both fighters were aware of the size and strength of their opponent, but MacIntyre just kind of hung on.

Posted by Bear72 on January 31, 2009 at 08:04 PM

I think the officials were as disapointed as i was either shit or git off the pot very tenative for 500 lbs of fighters Boogs with edge

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 31, 2009 at 09:36 AM

Boogard had the better fight. gets the W. The linesmans reaction was prideless. If your gonna fight , then fight already. lol

Posted by wsc03 on February 03, 2009 at 08:45 PM

The Boogyman had the position and appeared stronger. Slight edge to Boogaard.

Posted by BooSanta on January 31, 2009 at 05:18 PM

Too much tying up here. I guess you gotta be huge like Mcintyre to hold any serious Boogey rights. Boogey did manage to connect more and was more active so he'll get the edge. I'm sure we're hoping for more throwing from these 2 next time.

Posted by JoeSchmo on February 01, 2009 at 05:01 PM

A lot of dancing around before some big near misses. Overall, Boogard hit the bigger shots...what few there were.

Posted by MajorGroove on January 31, 2009 at 01:14 PM

MacIntryre didn't do nearly enough to claim a draw in this one. Boogaard didn't dominate but he was throwing and landing throughout so he gets the W. Not bad action but expected more from MacIntyre. Scored it a 6.

Posted by jake03_77 on January 31, 2009 at 02:41 PM

boogaard with a tough bout, macintyre held his own well against boggie but i have to give the edge to boo man

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 31, 2009 at 01:59 AM

that was so funny at the beginning the stripe put up his arms like "are u guys gonna throw are what?"........then boog said let me open up a can of whoop ass....boog is the best in the leauge...then godard is the second best fighter in the leauge......number 3 is porn stache.....laraque fell off my top five radar because he is a hugger and lost the last 2 of his last 3 fights.............and laraque is a wothless player that dont recognize his role as an enforcer because he thinks hes a scorer and thinks everyones afraid of him.......therefore he is a waste of a teammate..........kudos for the boog and what he does because he knows his role.....like real fighters in the leauge......winner to the boog man

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on January 31, 2009 at 12:49 AM


Posted by Tagga on January 31, 2009 at 01:28 PM

MacIntyre had a few good shots in the fight, Boogaard gets the win for more hard shots and generally controlling most of the fight. Btw, Godard broke Mac's orbital.

Posted by billy jack on January 31, 2009 at 01:52 AM

love the linesmen telling them fight or forget about it.

Posted by eluost on January 31, 2009 at 10:08 AM

First time I have seen Boogard turn into huggy bear. Boogy's first move was to grab on and give MacIntyre a kiss on the cheek. If you think Boogard won then why was Nilson able to dis boogard with a boarding penalty in the 3rd?

Posted by cup on February 01, 2009 at 12:34 PM

the 2 showed alot of respect for each other....

Posted by oilersfansylvan on January 31, 2009 at 03:04 PM

No big punches landed, I think anytime you come back from a broken face it entitles you to a draw by making sure your not hit with a big time shot....I give Mac credit for asking and making sure B knew he was willing it wasn't till they were down 2 till B obliged......B was a non factor and thats all Mac's job is......B did not run around like he usually does.....So in a way Mac won, he nullified B's presence.....

Posted by rocky 1 on January 31, 2009 at 01:22 AM

close fight but both fighters gunn shy!

Posted by MMaverickk on January 31, 2009 at 02:06 PM

Draw. Giving slight edge to Mac. Godard was the one to break Macs orbital not Boog. They were fairly equal in punches landed. Mac kept momentum in the game going, thus giving him a slight edge.

Posted by kingpaolo on January 31, 2009 at 12:56 PM

decent fight... slight edge to Mac

Posted by omorales on January 31, 2009 at 12:44 AM

Big Mac had the edge, Boogaard hit a lot of helmets

Posted by Spinner55 on January 31, 2009 at 08:38 AM

The days of Boogaard running skill players in Edmonton with no thought of paying the price are over with. Did I detect a bit of reluctance on Boogaard to fight someone his own size? Way to go, Stevie Boy!!

Posted by boomboom1978 on January 31, 2009 at 12:55 PM

Good to see Oilers have someone to stand up to Boogard - hopefully he will think twice before being a cheap untkay in the future.

Posted by ChrisNeilKO on January 31, 2009 at 08:00 AM

McIntyre dominated. Not even close. I'm surprised Boogard held in as long as he did. He'll probably be missing the Wild's next couple of games while his swelling goes down. Easy win for McIntyre!!!

Posted by thadd on October 03, 2009 at 03:01 AM

This sucks that the videos don't load up for me. There's nothing wrong with my computer and my browser is very much up to date.

Posted by GreenprideGBPDS on January 31, 2009 at 03:36 PM

this wasnt even a fight it was two wussys talking about each other then grabbing each other

Posted by PitbullX on January 31, 2009 at 12:36 AM

Announcer got it right, they just tie each other up. Not much of a scrap.

Posted by chad420 on January 31, 2009 at 06:06 PM

that sucked..a 2..expected better

Posted by Oil Can Henry on January 31, 2009 at 03:51 AM

Wasn't much to judge, here ( draw ) MacIntyre held his own, but Boogaard sure looked to be the stronger of the two.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 21, 2015 at 01:56 AM

Just a lackluster draw.

Posted by hossasux1 on January 31, 2009 at 05:58 PM

It was Godard who broke Mac's face... Fight was a draw. No solid punches.

Posted by tomales2 on January 31, 2009 at 12:42 AM

Expected a lot-got a disappointing draw

Posted by wildguy12 on January 31, 2009 at 04:34 PM

Boogy lands more, crap fight. Its funny how Macintyre tried to take Boogy down at the end, not happening.

Posted by millerdvr on November 18, 2009 at 02:09 AM

Boogy took it easy on mac, he held back from two or three KO blows to a wide open mac, easy win for boogy

Posted by gmr133 on January 31, 2009 at 07:33 PM

Weak performance by MacIntyre--he's obviously afraid to get his face broken again. Boogaard is a waste of a bench spot, but he wins this piece of crap fight. Funny how the linesman has to step in and get them to start throwin or forget about it. lame.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on February 01, 2009 at 05:54 PM

Not much, but a close win for Boogey.

Posted by muskokadangler on January 05, 2010 at 03:27 AM

Boogeyman Win!!!

Posted by 2001GT on February 07, 2009 at 02:01 PM

Im a boogy fan...maybe slight edge to Dereck

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on February 05, 2009 at 04:42 PM

Boogaard was more active, landing the best punch.

Posted by TheAsianator on February 02, 2009 at 09:20 PM

Win Boogaard

Posted by DaBomb1 on February 04, 2009 at 05:32 PM

Boogaard with the very slight edge

Posted by Fightsfan748 on February 02, 2009 at 09:34 PM

Boogaard landed more, gets the nod in this one

Posted by RhonaMitra1 on February 01, 2009 at 10:19 PM

Enough with the Oilers and their hugging ability. Stortini has made a name for himself, now i guess stevie is too. Boogaard gets the win for at least trying to throw a punch.

Posted by RMKB on January 31, 2009 at 08:59 AM

Draw, if anything Boogaard gets the slight edge for being more active

Posted by NoobsRUs on January 31, 2009 at 09:04 AM

Is it just me or does Edmonton produce huggers? aka Stortini and now MacIntyre

Posted by FightNight7 on January 30, 2009 at 11:35 PM

This fight had potential. They square off, Mac got Boogey's helmet off. They grappled. Each player threw rights. Boogaard was the more active, though Mac did a nice job trying to contain him. A call this a draw, but i could see a very narrow win for Boogaard, because it looked like he landed the best punch of the fight.

Posted by AllDayAP on February 02, 2009 at 08:12 PM

Edge to the Boogeyman for at least throwing a punch

Posted by bloodchurn on January 31, 2009 at 03:43 AM

Boogard seemed to wince on those body shots

Posted by DrBt on January 31, 2009 at 08:17 PM

boogey loses for being scared shitless, skating backward, seemed to be trying to escape a little bit, then the ref tells them to get going, and all he does is try and hug, as for the actual fight, draw

Posted by marinermoose38 on January 31, 2009 at 12:22 AM

Not much going on here. Good bounce-back scrap for Smackintyre and he fights Boogey to a solid draw.
