Nice surprise shot by Erskine. Laraque isn't nearly as effective as his reputation anymore. Good quick win.
BGL looks rusty. needs to go back to his roots and be more aggressive. He's always trying to wait and isn't dominant has he should be. Come Georges, do what you're being paid to do !
Clear DRAW. Erskine looked like a pussy, square off like a man! Non of his punches landed and if they did they were suck wet noodles that they had no impact. Figure it out idiots!
Acts of Erskine were unfair. Starts to rush through while Big Georges is not ready enough to defend himself. That´s the main reason why Erskine then wrestled him down. He was scared and should´ve been. no winner for this wrestling match.
If anyone believes Erskine wins this fight there Blind.First he jumps George like a girl would then throws a few rabbit punches to nowhere.Watch the next time they meet George will be ready and Erskine will be hurting bigtime all!
Anyone who votes for anything other than a draw is this is nuts. There are so many people out there who have been waiting for a long long time for any excuse at all to say that Laraque lost a fight and jumped at this as their opportunity. Nice try Laraque and Hab haters but this ones a clear cut draw. which does buy Erskine some props for standing toe to toe with the heavyweight champ of hockey. Mind you this was Laraques first game in over a month and showed he that he was out of top shape by loafing around the ice for the entire amount of short ice time he was granted. Four or five seconds and only one solid blow to the back of the head doesn't win anyone a fight in my books.
BS fight. Give Laraque the respect of a fair scrap.Draw is all will give.
A simple DRAW
Erskine jump on Laraque, dont respect the code. Draw.
Erskine was scared to death even the washington color guy said he jumped the chocolate rocket.
Draw. Sorry, I can't give a guy a win when he jumps the other guy. Laraque is one of the fairest fighters in the league and Erskine had every opportunity to drop them without jumping him, that was bush league.
I'd love to say that Laraque lost a fight, but he didn't. Erskine jumped him before he was ready, and after throwing 3 quick rights, he wrestled Laraque to the ice. Not exactly a win in my book. Laraque probably should have been more ready for the gloves to drop, but I still think this was a draw.
laraque with the easy win in this fight.
This was Laraques first game in a month give him credit at least
Erskine was sneaky :). Win for him but he knows himself that the way he got it was questionable.
BGL is a joke
If your gonna fight be ready. Erskine was. Give it to the cap player. George better get into fighting shape.
crap fight, but Erskine is a tough guy, and for what I see in this fight smart. He went all out on BGL and takled him before anything came his way.
Really not much of a fight,Erskine only gets the win for the take down.Not enough punches landed by either.
EDGE Erskine landing few strong punches.
slight edge to erskine in a lame weak fight.
Erskine was happy at landing a right and wanted to take the fight to the ground to survive. Can't blame him. Crap fight but he won.
erskine started throwing first and he gave his best,and still laraque was still on his feet,then they both juss go down,,,,,round two should be better,and no erskine is not the champ,he has to beat Janssen/McGrattan/Godard first cause these are the three that gave erskine a good beating in there bouts.[AMONG OTHERS].And these three were a big hit when they squared off at there recent games last year and the year before against geoge laraque bout laraque gave them a beating.
Laraque talked Erskine responded = Erskine wins crap fight
Ha Ha How about that role reversal. So now I wonder how Georgie Boy feels about the takedowns as Erskine gets the jump and uses his MMA skills for the takedown. Love it. Erskine with the win.
I guess thats one way to beat Laraque. Erskine gets the nod here but only for throwing a few shots before Laraque even knew they were fighting and getting BGL off balance. Not a great fight at all really wanted to see them squire off and have another go at it. For two big boys this fight was a let down. Erskine with the Win gave it a 3
Erskine win all the way
erskine surprised BGL here.. if they go again, BGL will kill him easy..
Punched and floored based on a good start.
Erskine gets the start on this fight and takes out Laraque.
Erskine W, smart fight....
erskine threw b4 bgl dropem luckily for erskine they hit the ice
Erskine throws as many punches as he can before Laraque can get squared away, then takes him down.... Puss move, but John Boy gets the cheap W. Any true Capital fan would boo this.....
Surprise BGL loses maybe its time to retire
You wanted him Big G you got him! Three shots and then he rag dolled you to the ice. Next time you call somebody out, be ready to throw! Win Erskine.
"Erkenstein" capitalized (no pun) on every advantage and knowing his opponent, didn't let Lafrog get in his Georges Foreman stance. Complete win for Erk.
BGL gets ripped by his pu$$y hometown fans all the time. He got what he deserved though,for talking too muhc,trying to be a gentleman. Habs are my team,but the fans totally suck,especially the French ones. Erskine with an easy win here,but I think BGL will dominate if there's a rematch
erskine gets the win in this fight.
Erskine gets the jump on him and lands the few shots of the fight, Erskine with the W, but it wasn't much of a scrap. /Patiently awaits for MCB to say "LARAQUE DESTROYED ERSKINE, ERSKINE LOSES ANOTHER FIGHT"
Erskine beats Laraque? Amazing!
Laraque wanted the fight, challenged Erskine for several seconds as Erskine was making his way to the bench. When the gloves came off Erskine being a wide open fighter didn't bother to pose/posture/etc he just started trowing. Erskine with a clear win in a rather uneventful fight.
Wow Laraque is still in this league? Who Knew Its funny that the first thing I see outta this guy all year is him trying to pick a fight with a non-fighter. I dont think he has the crown anymore. two words Colton Orr.
BGL's career keeps getting worse. A champ like him should not have let Erskine get off first. After this embarrasement he goes out the next night and kneecaps a Dead Thing. Go Away BGL, your tarnishing your legacy.
erskine started swinging and never stopped until he was on to of laraque.
Erskine with the easy win..
Erskine with the take down!
Nice hair Georges. he should lose just for that. W Erskine
I watched the Caps feed and they were replaying this fight at every opportunity before commercial breaks. Erskine used the Pearl Harbor strategy and laid into BGL before he could get set. Of course the BGL strategy was to take a defenseman with him to the sin bin so the Caps would have to play defense with rookies.
erskine did alright, yet didn't pound laraque, and its good to see laraque get thrown down for once...he's a big takedown artist that never wants to go long at all!
how do you vote larauqe on this one? Realistically tho that take down prob saved erskin from a beatdown
I'll give it the win to Erskine. He clearly wanted to hit fast and get in for the takedown fast before BGL was ready for him.
Laraque didnt get a chance to do his patented stance....then the garb followed by skating backwards while the other guys throws punches...... Looks like George's age is showing.....Erskine didnt give him much time to do his "huggy" thing
W Erskine, he played it well
good to see laraque get beat. erskine's a monster. so far he's taken down lucic and laraque! good for erskine. btw "habsroom" your a prick go back to canada erskine won that fight stop being a homer.
This is the first time I've actually seen Laraque not able to wrestle an opponent to the ice in less than 10 seconds. Instead, he took some shots to the head and than manage to drag Erskine (good thing he did!!) to the ice with him....
BGL got manhandled
Here is the funny part if you switched the two fighters in this fight half tools on here would be saying George destroyed him.LOL. Nice to see the that pud of wrestler get a taste of his own medicine
no bs,no dancin in circles for 10 min...erskine went right at em and won..good job
If it was unclear before whether or not Laraque had lost his title as heavyweight champ around the NHL, it's clear as day now. He doesn't fight often and after this loss to Erskine he goes down the ranks in my books. Colton Orr, despite losing a similar hug fest to Laraque to kick off the season, has to be the current king based on results this year. Boogard gets an honorable mention, but noone will fight him. lol. Not much of a fight but Erskine did what he needed to for the Victory! Always funny watching BGL get wrestled to the ice. IRONY!!!
Wow Erskine really does know how to fight, he actually beat Laraque and he also took on Lucic and won then too.
eskrine beat laraque bad
Surprised it wasn't a typical wrestling match like Laraque would have planned. Erskine got the jump on him and clearly gets the decisive win
Masterful. Everyone has different criteria for a fight, but to me, knocking your opponent to the ice is pretty much a win.
Great on John Erskine's part by just exploding right away, came out pounding away.
erskine gave GL the beat down, GL tried to get him going the entire time, erskine finally takes it to him and people call foul.. wtf? homers? does it make ersking the new heavyweight? fk no, he just won the fight,everyone loses now and then..
So Erskine wrestles Laraque down so somehow he's the winner????? This is a CLEAR DRAW and shouldn't have even been called a fight. No punches landed and it was obvious Erskine wanted NO PART of BGL!!
Wow..... BGL with another sweet wrestling match, typical bgl fight though, 1-2 punches then a takedown , lame fight
Erskine lands a couple quick ones,...realizes what he's done and gets nervous,....quickly, goes for the tackle - that's a win, I guess, right?,...isn't it?,....he's the champ, now, right?
Lands more in the exchange and then wrestles BGL to the ice. Edge Erskine.
Lousy fight. Johnny E with the Cheezzy win.
Well, W for Erskine - but an * should go by it. If nothing else, GL learned to be ready for the quick shelling!
it's been so long for laraque and it showed erskine did it right by starting fast and ending it quick......
Erskine got the jump on him, but BGL had his gloves off before the punches landed. I guess he didn't get to wish him good luck. Erskine with the narrow win.
"strike first...strike fast...strike hard.....YES SENSI".....win erskine over bgl in a quick one
Erskine gets the clear nod, but may have been fortunate that the fight didn't go any longer. "he's the champ, now, right? " Lol, great line. Just ask Belak's faithful!
Eskine gets BGL quick, and gets the decision, if this fight was a square off, droppin the mitts the same time, Erskine gets destroyed, my opinion, but Ersk gets the decision here.
Man, Erskine really got the jump on Georges
