BAckes backed himself up fierce, wins.

Posted by Bullybeatdown on January 03, 2010 at 05:33 AM

pachanga1971, your an idiot. The Blackhawks really need to do something about their lack of toughness. Win Backes.

Posted by Sarmedgar on January 03, 2010 at 05:00 AM

pachanga1971 You don't know what the fu^k you're talking about. Toews is the absolute last person on the Hawks, let alone in the NHL who wants to fight or even thinks of starting fights on a regular basis. Given that this is his SECOND fight as a pro, and that both were faught in hard battled teams to show he and his mates wouldn't back down to physical intimidation, I seriously question your sanity, and I.Q. The Hawks are one of the top three teams in the NHL, and will be a factor for the next decade. They matched St. Poois' physical play, killed off a monster 7:00 PP, and then systematically dismantled a team full of assholes playing for themselves and not their felow teammates. Toews taunting people? You must be out of your fuc*king mind, bitch.

get rid of the visors you two fruitcakes.

Posted by shuckthefarks on January 04, 2010 at 03:03 PM

I guess we'll call this a fight. Easy on these 2 for not taking the visors off....they had no clue what they were doing or what they were supposed to do. Toews punches looked like they were in slow mo. If I have to call one of these 2 a "winner" in this fight...it goes to Backes. But "winner" in this case is a relative term. They need to stick to the goal scoring.

Posted by irishpunk39 on January 03, 2010 at 12:56 PM

another celler dwelling gutless wonder.da blues have alot of them.lets see that puss try that with byfuglien,or seebs,he would get his ass handed to him.maybe the blus should try to score some more goals,that looks better for you when the playoffs role around. do hope keith tkchuck is alright,that was a rough way to get your name on the scorers sheet.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on January 04, 2010 at 07:56 PM

I gave this a draw brecause Backes should of trounced a small 20somithing kid with one NHL fight. Yet Toews hung on and didnt get leveled, started a toe to toe fight and didnt shadow box. Heh he could beat the shit out of the "now 'fighting'" Crosby! Toews could sure as hell fight better, Good job by the Haws to let their Captain stay in it!

Posted by sknowlton on January 03, 2010 at 02:11 PM

One word: visors. Drop 'em or don't fight.

Posted by shrk33 on January 03, 2010 at 07:52 PM

Towes at least gave the college try....

Posted by ScarbroSaint on January 03, 2010 at 03:21 PM

like to see Toews fight good heart but give the W to the other guy

Posted by BoogeyRocks on January 06, 2010 at 03:33 PM

Clear win for Backes. Not exactly heavy hands, but a lot of action and he landed a bunch of shots.

Posted by SABREHATRED on January 03, 2010 at 11:19 AM

Toews gets beat up like a drunken buffalo chump at moonlight bowling!!!

Posted by hizzy4shizzy on January 03, 2010 at 01:47 PM

good for toews standing up. backes the clear winner. the game definitely has changed. 5-10 years ago backes would have left the game on a stretcher or at least answer to probert, regardless of whether toews started it or not.

Posted by LicoriceBiscuit on January 04, 2010 at 04:52 PM

Who in the hell voted for Toews? Way to keep the voting process creditable. Win Backes, but nice to see Toews stand up for himself.

Posted by Angel of Sin on January 10, 2010 at 06:57 PM

For Toews asking Backes to go, he looked like a fish out of water. BACKES with the win

Posted by hockeyplayer168 on January 13, 2010 at 05:07 AM

Backes looked like a kid in a candy store when Toews agreed.

Posted by billy jack on January 03, 2010 at 04:39 PM

toews got his ass kicked,that's what happens when you go to prep schools in the USA because you cant handle the WHL in Canada..

Posted by MSUfaninMO on January 03, 2010 at 08:05 AM

In a battle of the visors I'll give Backes the "W" in this fight. Backes did more in the fight than Toews. I give Toews props for dropping the gloves though. This is what his second or third fight?

Posted by brazos on January 03, 2010 at 11:49 AM

I would agree with sarmedgar although I would have expressed myself in a more civil manner. Towes is not a fighter, neither is Backes but he does have more experience. The Blues are a team in disarray clearly dominated by the Hawks

Posted by bostonrs555 on January 03, 2010 at 09:26 AM

Clear Win for Backes, Toenails gets owned!!!!!

Posted by detroitsucks11 on January 03, 2010 at 12:42 AM

Props for Toews for showing up. but win for Backes

Posted by devils on January 05, 2010 at 09:30 PM

NO VISORS PLEASE! Extra 2

Posted by HawksFanUC on January 03, 2010 at 11:25 PM

The hawks are in need for another tough guy or enforcer so crap teams like the blues who only care about injuring the other teams stars at least hesitate. Toews should rarely have to do this because of obviously its the worst part of his game.

Posted by goldndomer101 on January 11, 2010 at 04:22 PM

gotta give credit for toews for holding his own

Posted by slysi on June 01, 2016 at 12:34 PM

BACK-ASS looked like a real man against a NON-FIGHTER ! Should have made the BLEWS fans so proud !

Posted by the kid 61 on July 30, 2015 at 06:11 PM

The american gets revenge for losing the gold to canada.

Posted by Muscles on January 05, 2010 at 09:27 PM

Toews might rethink that decision if he had it to do over.

Posted by infestedcut on January 03, 2010 at 03:07 AM

If Toews is gonna fight someone, make he doesn't fight a person with a visor on. =P

Posted by big10drup8787 on January 06, 2010 at 01:38 PM

Backes took it to Toews.. A for effort though on Toews part.

Posted by SirYohans on January 04, 2010 at 08:40 PM

WTF was Toews thinking here. Backes knows what he's doing with the gloves off. Easy win for 'em.

Posted by kingpintoo on January 03, 2010 at 12:52 PM

USA! USA! USA!!!!

Posted by bluesrule08 on January 03, 2010 at 03:48 PM

im surprised toews fought. i give him a lot of credit though cuz he was clearly outmanned there. thats a time where a guy like eager or byufglien would step in. good win for backes

Posted by jlmcgui on January 03, 2010 at 08:02 PM

Wow, Backes kicked Toews' butt there ..... nice to see the scorer's throw them every now and then. And a scorer not having to defend himself against a cheap shot artist; ala Kaleta.

Posted by usmcaaron on January 03, 2010 at 05:42 PM

The Hawks captain is the only person on the team who wants to fight fair and square, and he takes a heavy-handed whoopin. Backes dominates.

Posted by hal29 on January 03, 2010 at 12:20 PM

wow backes just gave toews a wooping, that was embarrasing for toews. he looked like a little girl

Posted by MikeVee on January 05, 2010 at 06:09 PM

Toews got pounded pretty good here-Looked like he was lost a bit.

Posted by metz87 on January 03, 2010 at 05:33 PM

Never though these two guys would go. Pretty good fight but Toews got beat up pretty good.

Posted by st. bernard on January 03, 2010 at 02:01 PM

not bad for two guys who don't fight. toews got beat but at least he did'nt back down.

Posted by killjoy on January 07, 2010 at 12:13 AM

Backes won the fight, but Johnnytoews wins where it counts: the scoreboard.

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 31, 2015 at 01:19 PM

Backes Stunned Toews a couple times. Clear Cut winner.

Posted by Franchise on January 04, 2010 at 10:40 PM

Nice to see Backs showing the fire I've been waiting a long time to see. Former Mankato boy throwing down!!! Clear win for him.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 03, 2010 at 06:01 PM

nice fight by 2 non fighters. W for Backes

Posted by JoeBlue on January 18, 2010 at 02:39 AM

What was Toews thinking going after Backes? Welcome to the big league son. Stick to scoring and leave the fighting to the men.

Posted by jschroe14 on January 05, 2010 at 11:46 AM

Wow, Backes could have really done some damage to Toews if he wanted to.

Posted by BCuz on January 03, 2010 at 11:04 PM

Given the both fighters had visors, that argument can be dropped...finally. Glad to see a franchise player like Toews fighting his own fight without stepping down or letting a teammate handle things. Although he stepped up, Backes beat him down. Domination Win = Backes

Posted by PuddlePirate on January 07, 2010 at 03:44 AM

Dunno why anyone would vote Toews the winner in this one. At this game, very excited to see Backes get in a scrap. Backes, hands down, winner.

Posted by joelwilliam on January 13, 2010 at 06:49 PM

that will probably toews last fight for a while

Posted by jancik93 on October 21, 2012 at 05:30 AM

Vzhledem k rivalite techto dvou tymu jde o velice slusny boj. Oba hraci jsou v soucasnosti kapitani techto dvou klubu a prave o to je to jeste zajimavejsi. Toews si nevedl zle ale Backes dominoval vzhledem ke sve postave.

Posted by TipsFTW on January 07, 2010 at 01:38 PM

Good donnybrook by two non-fighters

Backes dominates Toews

Posted by pachanga1971 on January 03, 2010 at 03:16 AM

I'm glad to see Toews get his ass kicked...Everytime I see Toews play he always wants to fight...Great job Backes!

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 03, 2010 at 08:49 PM

backes pummeled toews.

Posted by krade15 on January 13, 2010 at 01:37 PM

I think it's hilarious that Toews is acutally getting 6% of the winning vote! Total domination by Backes!

Posted by no123one on January 23, 2010 at 08:44 AM

Who the fuck fights Toews? Backes is a huge tool and I'm glad to see Nash beat him up. The only time an american can win is fight a much smaller player who never fights. (But Nash taught Backes a nice lesson).

Posted by Blackhawk16 on January 03, 2010 at 10:39 PM

You Blues fans are idiots...Pachanga - you say everytime you see Toews play he wants to fight??? Are you sure you're watching the right guy??? You guys call him a bitch?? He's nearly the classiest guy in the league, being compared to Yzerman and Sakic...enjoy last place...you'll be there for years to come...morans!!

Posted by HaWKeYToWNusa on January 03, 2010 at 03:29 PM

Toews wins just for showing up. Backes shoved toews around and lands 0 hits. Toews goes down and gets back up for more. Like I said Toews win just for standing up to the Blues garbage pail kids. Should have been Backes vs Toews and Kane, Kane got a cheap ass headshot early-on therefor him and Toews should have been able to tagteam Backes bitch ass. Backes got knocked around later on by some CLEAN hits. The blues should bring a note book and pen next time.

Posted by The Hooligan on January 08, 2010 at 02:30 PM

Toews showed up and stood his own. College boy done good.

Posted by ouchboi on January 12, 2010 at 11:22 AM

way to step up toews....as if kane or some other american top scorer would do that....lmao..good ol winnipeg boy

Posted by lily_flower2004 on January 02, 2010 at 09:44 PM

for only his second fight toews did alright...def. not a fighter tho...surpized me when it started..

Posted by azjim on January 04, 2010 at 03:40 AM

Once again Backes takes on a non-fighter. He still didn't dominate.

Posted by wetstick on January 02, 2010 at 11:43 PM

toews ? what the hell was he thinking, he sure can take a punch to the visor though

Posted by dorian on January 04, 2010 at 11:11 PM

haha Visor Fight! Meh, obvious win for Backes but who cares? Hawks are one of the best teams in the league while the Blues are bottom-dwellers who are out to hurt as many people as possible - they took out at least three Predators the other night including Martin Erat.

Posted by hawksfan81 on November 29, 2010 at 06:52 PM

Way to go Backes! Picking a fight with Jonathan Toews, definitely known as a fighter. Good job there.

Posted by DuffyBank on January 03, 2010 at 09:28 AM

Toews is no Sidney Crosby. Everything you would expect from a Toews fight, but give him some credit for at least dropping them. Easy win for Backes

Posted by claire alexande on January 03, 2010 at 06:15 PM

Toews sucks at hockey fighting. Cheap shot by Backes to start the whole thing. Wish Backes had showed that kind of gumption against Ryan Kesler of the Capukes.

Posted by chad420 on January 03, 2010 at 04:11 PM

young capt toews drops em...nice....he took one though...win backes

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on January 03, 2010 at 09:44 AM

I give Toews credit for fighting Backes, but he was definitely out of his element. Toews was throwing pillows the whole fight.

Posted by LordKOTL on January 04, 2010 at 12:37 PM

I can go and say that Toews proved why he was the captian for being willing to stick up for himself and not be pushed around, blah, blah, blah. I love Toews, but let's face it, much like the Bulgarians vs. the Slovaks in women's hockey, Toews gets destroyed.

Posted by LaceEmUp on January 03, 2010 at 02:45 PM

Don't Toews me bro!

Posted by tomales2 on January 03, 2010 at 09:15 AM

Toews has many skills but fighting is obviously not one of them. A beat down by Backes

Posted by muskokadangler on January 03, 2010 at 09:42 AM

Wow!!!! So cool........Remember back in the day teamates would not have let Backes continue to win against their top player........Hell I wanted to jump in!!!!!! HA HA HA Great Job Both Guys stepped up and one is just way better at it then the other!!!!

Posted by J.R. Abel on January 03, 2010 at 04:50 PM

Toews should stick to scoring goals, because he got owned here.

Posted by PitbullX on January 03, 2010 at 01:55 AM

the tower inferno with the win in this battle. ---- That how you saw it MCB??

Posted by JoMilla on January 07, 2010 at 04:20 PM

Backes. Clearly. "Once again Backes takes on a non-fighter. He still didn't dominate." Comments like this make me wonder if people are really this clueless

Posted by Dman7sjci on January 04, 2010 at 11:02 PM

Definite win by Backes, but credit to both guys for stepping out of their element and dropping the gloves. Would be nice to see the helmets come off before the fists start flying next time though.

Posted by jklochan on March 06, 2010 at 09:01 PM

Dear Jonathan Toews, It's probably not a good idea for you to ever fight anyone. You're a great player, do what you do. Those were the slowest punches I've seen in a hockey fight.

Posted by PigIron on January 03, 2010 at 08:58 PM

Easy pick - W for Backes.

Posted by saxonthebeach on January 09, 2010 at 04:46 PM

Love when fights are actually produced from the emotion of the game. I rated the fight higher, because they weren't typical combatants.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 03, 2010 at 08:16 PM

Backes finally finds someone he can beat. How ''courageous'' of him...

Posted by bboyer on January 03, 2010 at 10:47 AM

Toews got his a** kicked just another Hawks Bit*h
