2 minutes for holding the chin strap. Boo.

terrible fight. A Behn Wilson: ir-regardless? really?

Posted by youthattack on January 23, 2011 at 12:15 PM

the instigator rule is the worst rule in hockey, period. can't believe some people on this site advocating the use of it here. draw in a lame fight.

:::yawn::: boring fight.....DRAW. Holding the chin strap of your opponent:WEAK! It wasn't so much Methot's "elbow" that drew Strachen's ire I think. I believe it was the leg to leg hit on Oshie who is coming back from a leg injury

draw

I'm not sure what the fuss was about the hit, it was clean! If your gonna jump a guy for making a legal check, at least beat him! DRAW

Posted by pd3702 on January 23, 2011 at 08:57 AM

garbage homer announcers....Methot threw a dirty hit on Oshie and Strachan did the right thing by stepping up. Sadly he didnt get tuned like he should of for the knee!!!

Posted by GreatMurray on January 25, 2011 at 09:00 AM

2 to Strachan for delay. Ok hit by Methot...totallly stupid non-fight!

Posted by bruins rule on January 23, 2011 at 07:49 AM

not much going on here.

Posted by slavv on January 23, 2011 at 05:08 PM

Let's just say this one isn't gonna get anyone out of their comfy seats...

Posted by bman1368 on January 23, 2011 at 01:42 AM

Strachan had every right to go after Methot for the hit, which was not clean, watch his knee come out. Too bad he didn't give him a nice beatdown for it. The Blue Jackets announcers suck, a lot.

how come strachan didnt get instigator penalty???he decided to fight methot after regular hit.that was just stupid.and looked pathetic.methot didnt wanna fight and held on hstrachan's helmet strap..draw and gave it 3

Posted by Juha82 on January 23, 2011 at 03:36 AM

they does a decent job in this lame tilt but not much landed really and they werent very active because couldnt get a loose hand. DRAW!! Stratchan threw better shots so i understand possible slight edge Stratchan but more a draw to me.

Posted by potosicc on January 23, 2011 at 12:48 AM

not a clean hit people-leading with the elbow-don't need Oshie hurt again by cheap shots-was not really a fight

Posted by sedinfan on January 23, 2011 at 12:02 AM

How can there be no instigator on these clean hits. I hate that crap when these guys got to defend themselves for playing hockey.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 23, 2011 at 12:35 PM

No offence intended, and I hate having to agree with anything those painful Blue Jacket ''announcers'' have to say...but the hit seemed clean, and more importantly... ...IMO...the instigator rule is the bane of hockey's existence, and one of the main reasons why the sport's growth has been perpetually stunted south of the border... irregardless of whether it's application was justified in this case, or not.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 23, 2011 at 02:46 AM

another lame bout from this game. Draw

Posted by staceyb on January 23, 2011 at 06:48 AM

There might have been a case for two minutes for Methot for elbowing and two minutes for Strachan for instigator but the fight was a wash. Why didn't Methot pull Strachan down toward the end?--he had the leverage.

Posted by rocky 1 on January 23, 2011 at 02:53 AM

Draw!

Posted by Double Nickels on January 26, 2011 at 12:16 PM

Methot taps him out with the earhole-armbar.

Posted by kingpintoo on January 24, 2011 at 10:37 PM

whatever.

Posted by Bassen28 on January 23, 2011 at 11:55 AM

Columbus play by play guys need to learn a few things about the game of hockey...clearly a knee on knee, which is what started the fight...guess they're still neww with the game of hockey up there

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on January 23, 2011 at 12:30 AM

Holding the chin strap, what in the world, not very manly. Methot wants no part of a fight. Oshie just returned from injury, Strachan doesn't like the hit, even if it was clean. Maybe he should have been called for Instigator, but I don't think it is just the NHL today. Dave Semenko jumped people for looking at Gretky wrong, and more recently Scott Parker protected Forsberg and Sakic after return from injuries. First time I have seen the first two posts of a fight defending Instigator rule, I was surprised.

Posted by st. bernard on January 23, 2011 at 11:03 AM

hit was not brutal,but was knee to knee so i don't blame strachan. strachan should have gotten extra 2. he gets win

Posted by bluesrule on January 23, 2011 at 12:43 PM

what a dirty hit he got what was coming to him!! easy win strachen

Posted by hncreature on January 23, 2011 at 02:18 AM

3 pathetic fights...can we please get squared up and fight - No winners in any of the 3...bitch jabs do not equal fighting - Man up boys!

Posted by durka on January 28, 2011 at 02:15 PM

doesnt seem like their the same size. crappy fight nonetheless. draw

Posted by BritishRedWing on January 23, 2011 at 07:17 PM

Rugby scrum, not a fight. Draw.

Posted by Fl4mefern0 on January 23, 2011 at 10:44 PM

douche Mathot grabbing Strachan's helmet strap. skeet move, skeet.. need moar Cam

Posted by Tony Esposito on January 23, 2011 at 10:10 PM

Clean hit = fight = Bullshiiitt

Posted by STL13 on January 23, 2011 at 04:01 AM

Clean hit?!?!?!? Are you BLIND? Methot threw an elbow to the head.

Posted by chad420 on January 24, 2011 at 10:48 AM

He has the name...but hes far from Mike..........draw

Posted by blackngold on January 24, 2011 at 08:51 PM

What a peculiar turn of events: Methot delivers some kind of shoulder/elbow combination hit, grazing the other guy's shoulder. Strachan goes after Methot for a clean hit that barely even connected. Methot starts convulsing in the groin region about half way through. And then Methot grabs Strachan's ear strap and just death-grips onto it as if it were the only thing keeping him from falling over the edge of a cliff.... Odd.

Today's NHL... Clean hit in a close game ..... You get jumped. Lame....

Posted by Redzilla on January 23, 2011 at 08:41 PM

I guess with all these clean hits it is keeping us busy commenting on all the fights.....draw.

Posted by jschroe14 on January 23, 2011 at 03:44 PM

Would have been higher rated with a knee on knee knocking Oshie out for rest of year
