GIRL FIGHT!!!!!!!!

Posted by boldbilly on December 28, 2010 at 03:06 PM

Wow that Phaneuf sure showed him. He must have went to the Komisarek school of fighting. What a waste of a signing both he and Komisarek, and while we're at it Boston must be really happy about the up coming draft next year what with Seguin and now another first rounder for that stiff Kessel. Oh yeah the fight was a draw and cheap shot pu s$y Phaneuf couldn't beat the stuffing out of a torn pillow. WHAT A JOKE

lol

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on December 26, 2010 at 09:04 PM

Phaneuf is hugging with his gloves off before Kovalchuk slings his off. Phaneuf should dominate this fight, but as is clearly the case, he is one of those players who disappoint fans in many areas. This guys should be better, he is skilled. ( He can even play the piano and sing, funny if you ever saw the video)

I feel sorry for Phaneuf. He carries such a large rep that he never truly earned. He's an average D with some offense, but he can't fight at all. I guess that's why he always picks on the other teams stars as they usually don't fight.

Posted by hal29 on December 27, 2010 at 01:53 PM

I give this a draw but would get the edge more to Kovalchuk as Celine Dion just wanted to hug from the start...no respect for that cheap cry baby phagneuf

Posted by sedinfan on December 26, 2010 at 08:48 PM

brutal fight, you would think Phanuef would dominate, but anyone that has watched Phanuef in the western conference knows he can't fight. He was always a hugger, would never stand and throw them. Draw and a 2.

Posted by ProdigyTwin on December 28, 2010 at 10:24 AM

Love that Kovalchuk will stick up for himself. Don't see too many high-end talent guys do this. A hug-fest and a draw. What do you expect?

Posted by dansal55 on December 27, 2010 at 04:49 PM

The Devils are so awful that their overpaid supposed goal scoring machine has to get so frustrated he takes to fighting. They need to clean house in a hurry and bring in some young talent. I would rather rebuild than lose with overpaid veterans. If both guys swung as hard as they could, maybe they could hit Chico on the button simultaneously and KHTFO and get him out of the booth. He needs to go as part of the housecleaning. This team is a dumpster fire.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 26, 2010 at 09:53 PM

the only thing that connected was Phaneuf's elbow. Draw

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 28, 2010 at 10:48 AM

Two graduates of the Stortini Hug Academy, ''try'' to take out the frustrations of their respective seasons on each other.

Posted by DARCY T on December 29, 2010 at 08:55 AM

draw...4

Posted by Juha82 on December 27, 2010 at 03:54 AM

I gave 4 for the fun and both was ok in this emotional wrestlingmatch. SOLID DRAW but i could still understand slight edge Phaneuf but barely! Looked like no god punches landed and usually not much landed. they still threw some shots each man.

Posted by staceyb on December 27, 2010 at 08:30 AM

The Multimillion Dollar Stiff gets miffed at the face slash--I cut myself shaving this morning more severe than that--and proceeds to try to slap Phaneuf with his wallet.

Posted by giantsfrey on December 26, 2010 at 10:58 PM

frustration level = 10, fight level = 4. draw

Posted by fernben8 on December 27, 2010 at 01:26 AM

Going with a Draw here... I really feel Kovalchuk is one of the better fighters of all the Superstar players and Dion is definitely over-rated. Too bad Kovalchuk had his right arm caught in his jersey...would put my $$ on him.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on December 29, 2010 at 03:05 PM

Draw

Posted by richieradio on December 26, 2010 at 10:58 PM

KOVALCHUK suprized me. He held his own this time but he won't next time.

Posted by matejmalda on December 29, 2010 at 05:31 AM

Draw here...

Posted by EDDUBBS on December 27, 2010 at 04:32 AM

IIlya translated = Huge Kovalchuk translated = Wasted Load Great move to the team that needs to disband, dissolve and go away: NJ Devils

Posted by jbaker3924 on December 27, 2010 at 07:14 AM

I voted for Kovalchuk. Phaneuf is an embarrassment. Run around trying to lay people out and then only back it up against the likes of guys named Ilya. What a joke.

Posted by cppalermo on December 27, 2010 at 10:02 AM

total hug match initiated by phaneuf...what a bitch he is.

Posted by Silky Smith on December 27, 2010 at 10:41 AM

Reason number one million why Phaneuf sucks balls.

phaneuf is such a pussy ,you piece of shit

Posted by Tyler_Durden on December 27, 2010 at 10:29 AM

Phaneuf s'est un esti de fefi! Il préfère frapper par derrière!

Posted by tyrone on December 28, 2010 at 09:44 AM

Phaneuf is the biggest PU$$Y in the league. Win Russian dude.

Posted by rseuferer on December 27, 2010 at 10:55 PM

Typical pussy fight for the turtle Phaneuf

Posted by oilersfansylvan on January 04, 2011 at 02:37 PM

Typical Dion....he so full of chicken shit i'm surprised he doesn't have a beak....so glad he is out east......him and Avery must be Kentucky Cousins

Posted by kbelanger33nyi on December 27, 2010 at 01:05 PM

Well I see Phaneuf is back to fighting the tougher guys in the league.

Posted by hairysasquatch on December 27, 2010 at 12:25 AM

Props to Kovie for at least sticking up for himself but he was lucky to have been able to hang on for dear life.

Posted by crushconn on December 28, 2010 at 12:17 AM

No need to bash Phaneuf as is customary. He's a top tier defenseman who plays a physical game, clears the crease, can hit in the open ice with the best and has a solid offensive game. However he's a mediocre fighter who stands up when he has too. Any teams out there who wouldn't take him?.....Didn't think so.

Posted by The DZA on December 27, 2010 at 10:18 AM

FOTY

Posted by hoodman on December 26, 2010 at 09:11 PM

kovalchuck should stick to scoring goals. Whose next ilya, colton orr?

Posted by Rang99 on December 26, 2010 at 08:42 PM

Kovalchuk can't score or fight sums up the Devils season. He did take one on the cheek-kudos

Posted by mohanrisen on December 26, 2010 at 09:14 PM

Kovalchuk is having an miserable year and that scrum sums it up...wholel lot of nothing and a bloody face.

Posted by billy jack on December 27, 2010 at 01:04 PM

what the hell was kovy doing,the russian bear hug-push.win dion.

Posted by bruins rule on December 26, 2010 at 08:46 PM

dion gets the win in this fight.

Posted by no123one on December 28, 2010 at 09:22 PM

Definite win for Phaneuf!! Sweet! Kovalchuk has to be the most awkward fighter in the NHL, and I don't think he's won one yet! LOL (oh maybe against Mcabe) I like how the NJ announcers try to justify the cut Kovalchuk got from a punch by saying it was from a stick when the stick was CLEARLY in the chest level. LOL! They also said he took down Phaneuf as just as Phaneuf lands on TOP of Kovalchuk! LOL! As for Kovalchuk being "high end" talent, that's a joke right? He's not even in the top 30 in the NHL in scoring, mediocre, overrated player at best. Corey Perry is in the top 5 scoring and fights almost every week. Btw, notice the hair pull by Kovalchuk? He's done that before. THE most awkward "fighter" in the NHL.

I dig

Posted by hockeyherman on December 27, 2010 at 12:23 AM

Stupid hugfest with the only shot being a dirty elbow thrown by Phaneuf!

Posted by muskokadangler on December 27, 2010 at 07:56 PM

I give it a 1.....Lmfao .....As a HUGE leaf fan I am Humbled to say......" I think Dion was trying to hit him with his box of Girl Guide Cookies" Peace OUT GIRL SCOUT!!!!!

Celine Dion cant even beat up WoodChuk...draw

Posted by Wilberm on December 27, 2010 at 09:55 AM

At least they dropped their purses.......

Posted by Dr. Goonery on December 28, 2010 at 12:04 AM

Dion should STOP fighting!

Posted by bigdog2007 on December 28, 2010 at 09:48 AM

P*ssy B*itch Leaf. Fighting a non-fighter. Drops his gloves first, as usual. What a clown Phagoof is. He loses for being so damn ugly and useless. Crushconn is delusional! Top tier defenseman? Are you well? Many many team wouldn't take him dummy!!!! Toronto was his ONLY option. See the league unlike Burkie can judge a talentless over paid stiff.

Posted by blackngold on December 26, 2010 at 11:01 PM

Phaneuf goes right for the hug. What a bitch. It's Ilya Kovalchuk for god's sake.

Posted by piney on December 29, 2010 at 10:00 AM

Kovie gets ragdolled.
