Ah, the big "what if" had Boogaard connected with that huge overhand right. Funny thing is that earlier in the first period Boogaard almost tipped in a shot that would have been his first NHL goal. The play-by-play announcer joked that it was his 203rd game and Boogaard had told him earlier, "Do you have to be so specific?"
It would be nice to see Boogie actually fight someone, it has been over a month since he actually fought a heavyweight (McGratten). Time he went with goddard who KO'd him twice last year or one of the other real heavyweights instead of these lightweights he picks.
i don't care much for the guy, because he's huge and frightening, but boogaard is THE measuring stick in the NHL for fighters. a lot of people will argue about who's the champ, but though he's gone down a couple times, boogaard is the man to beat, no doubt.
The big goon Derek Boogaard is going to seriously kill someone one of these days, He ain't much of a player, but there isn't anyone who can handle him in the fight cause that's all he prepares for. Plus he's 6-8 260. 10 times out of 10 a mismatch. Even the others his height around the league couldn't absorb the blows if he lands.
