LA sucks !

Posted by CloweStaubi on April 10, 2011 at 12:46 PM

Didn't really get to see this whole fight, but good for Selanne... The one guy on this ducks team that has class, so it takes a lot to piss him off... As for Richardson, you're a turd... Last fight was against Dan Boyle, this one was against Selanne... Goes after the non-fighters

Posted by FHgrad99 on April 10, 2011 at 11:51 AM

You don't see this happen very often, Selanne getting in a fight. I gave it a draw because I couldn't see a clear edge for either guy.

Posted by chad420 on April 13, 2011 at 11:46 AM

draw...nice job Teemu

Posted by sandman935 on April 10, 2011 at 03:18 PM

Wow... surprised to see Selanne actually drop the gloves. He picked the right guy. Richardson seldom fights. DRAW.

Posted by efp on April 10, 2011 at 06:13 AM

HA! Kings suck big D---! Youre getting swept by San Jose! Sharks fans bring the brooms to staples. Kings a the dirtbags of the league along with their fans. Your team has never done anything and never will. Prime candidate for contraction. I don't think Jim Fox was biased as he usually is. He can be an idiot at times with Bob Miller but the seemed partial in this one.

Posted by Behn Wilson on April 10, 2011 at 08:20 AM

Seemed like a, seriously, chippy game, and In the midst of a whole lot of players, consecutively, sticking up for each other... the furious Finn, impressively, chooses to fight his own battles, and, surprisingly, comes out of it, none the worse for wear.

Posted by skater1 on April 10, 2011 at 09:10 AM

The Kings woke a sleeping giant by pulling that stunt and it's one that they're going to regret later on during the playoffs. The already started the fall by losing the home cede to the Ducks who came out of nowhere. Both Richardson and Clifford have a lot to learn, a lot.

Posted by Bmelsmullet on April 11, 2011 at 06:14 PM

This was a hugfest between two non-fighters. Brad Richardson has a serious deficiency of lead in his ass; Timid Sowhiney has no business with his gloves off.

Posted by mudman55 on April 11, 2011 at 08:34 AM

How can you not love Teemu?

Posted by McDonald19 on April 10, 2011 at 02:48 AM

Selanne handled himself well. Good to see the Hall of Famer stand up for himself. Richardson broke the code. You don't go after a 40 year old Hall of Famer who has never been in a fight in his life. Show some respect Brad, you are barely a capable grinder in the NHL.

Posted by boldbilly on April 10, 2011 at 08:16 PM

I would like to believe that Selanne won this but judging by what we see on video this looks like a draw!

Posted by sedinfan on April 10, 2011 at 11:21 AM

Can't see much, but Selanne is awesome.

Posted by Spoonster on April 10, 2011 at 11:51 AM

Hahah! Awesome!

Posted by gongermuskegon on April 10, 2011 at 04:43 AM

how about the dinosaur giving it a go with the young gun brad richadson! A battle of the ages going the distance for a endingless three second brawl. love the tude by both, draw and a 4

Posted by tattooedkingpin on April 10, 2011 at 09:30 AM

props to Selanne for dropping the gloves. bad camera angle and no replay. Draw

Posted by Soulcrusher84 on April 10, 2011 at 04:06 AM

Go Teemu!

Posted by DARCY T on April 13, 2011 at 04:30 AM

too bad i didnt see the whole fight..i like angry non-fighters and this fight looked entertaining to me...draw and gave it 6

Posted by SOCALFAN on April 10, 2011 at 11:30 AM

When did the job of announcer become prositute for the home team. Loser Richardson, in every sense of the word.

Posted by countejacula on April 11, 2011 at 12:50 AM

Selanne wins because anyone who takes on Teemu is a chump. If you can't fight anyone other than a 40 year old Finnish non-fighter, you're pathetic. Good for Selanne just for having one under his belt before his career ends.

Posted by Sasky001 on April 10, 2011 at 11:12 AM

Richardson is a punk who lost to a 40 year old european goal scorer.

Posted by staceyb on April 10, 2011 at 08:28 PM

Teemu! Teemu!

Posted by fridge rules on April 10, 2011 at 03:05 AM

Teemu was bleeding on his cheek from the original crosscheck he took. The fight was hard to determine because of bad camera angles. Teemu connected with one, and I bet Richardson got one in, so Draw in my book

Posted by b.t.wilson on April 10, 2011 at 12:12 PM

Can't see enough to call a winner, but Selanne is simply awesome. Loving this Ducks of Burke team coming back. Score and beat everyone up, they are on frigging fire and are very scary right now.

Posted by bruins rule on April 10, 2011 at 08:14 AM

teemu gets the win here.

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on April 10, 2011 at 11:23 AM

Selanne gets the unaminous decision and huge respect for dropping the mitts at 40!! Anaheim is going to roll through the first round

Posted by Iceboss on April 10, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Nice end of the season.. This fight will make the Ducks come out strong.. Mark my words...

Posted by shuckthefarks on April 11, 2011 at 12:17 PM

I'll give it to Selanne but a close one. And we thought the Ducks needed GP!

Posted by bigpucks on April 10, 2011 at 12:35 PM

Crazy he never dropped them before

Posted by acemtydk on April 10, 2011 at 02:23 PM

OK, let's see if I got this right. Less than four minutes left in the game puck on the side boards a first ballot Hall of Famer protecting the puck when a journeyman center decides to go headhunting. Pretty classless way to get in the NHL history books. Win to Selanne for simply putting up with the punk.

Posted by AZfromNJ on April 11, 2011 at 12:03 AM

Garry Howatt? No. Stan Jonathan? No. Teemu Selanne the first fighting major of his 20 year career!! It's been that kind of year. The west will be interesting; have to like the Sharks but they usualy find a way to lose, we know the Canucks will come up short and Detroit doesn't have that swagger this year. I think a finalist comes from one of the other 5; hope it's my Yotes, but the Ducks sure look good.

Posted by GreatMurray on April 10, 2011 at 11:01 AM

Didn't really see enough to call it more than a draw...gave it to Selanne just because I like to see the Euro-weenies stick up for themselves.

Posted by totmacher on April 11, 2011 at 02:21 AM

Shitty camera work = draw but honestly they caught the bloody face other fight so got to give them credit for that. heh, this fight instantly put the image of the old man on the city bus beating the snot outa that other guy in my head.

Posted by gonzosducks8 on April 10, 2011 at 03:38 AM

The Ducks feed video showed the fight from a better angle, I did see Teemu land a good punch. Really dislike how biased Fox and Miller, Johnson's hit could have been called a boarding call or a cross check, uncalled for for Richardson to go after someone who isn't a fighter. Meh what matters is Anaheim got a better position in the playoffs.

Posted by maxrelax on April 10, 2011 at 03:55 AM

Richardson is classless pulling a stunt like that against a player like Selanne. I wish Selanne would have destroyed him, but either way Selanne won the bout clean against a guy 14 years younger. How Johnson gets out of it all without even a penalty is beyond me. The guy should be embarrassed of himself for that gutless crosscheck.

Posted by ankkamies on November 17, 2017 at 01:46 PM

Teemu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Richardson and Kings ASSHOLES!!

Posted by siltmipa on April 10, 2011 at 02:43 AM

Selanne Win!!! Richardson sucks. And at same time Clifford got what he needed, i was hoping KO but bloody face is OK for him

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on April 10, 2011 at 03:33 AM

Wow, just wow. Awesome!

Posted by Finnish-Flash. on April 12, 2011 at 08:53 AM

Selänne won!

Posted by K.O.cur_26 on April 11, 2011 at 02:55 PM

billyjack: LMAO. Selanne twice Richardsonä's size? Fuck you. Selanne is 6'0 200 at max and Richardson is 5'11 185, not ahuge difference and Brad 15 years younger, so fuck you. Selanne could be a decent fighter if he did this more, but he is more useful in scoring loads of goals for the team.

Posted by ryncamp on April 10, 2011 at 05:31 AM

Who knew " The Finnish Flash" could kick some [email protected]#! I've never seen Teemu get so incensed, but good for him. The Ducks are 'team tough" down to every man, whether it's Parros, or Getz, Pears, and now Selanne. Richardson is a total dirt-bag for going after a 40 yr old scoring machine, 1st ballot future Hall of Famer.

Posted by whitenebula on April 10, 2011 at 03:55 AM

Jim Fox quickly blames this situation on a shoulder by Teemu Selanne... Because that hit to the back of Teemu's head by Richardson's stick, which knocked Teemu's helmet off his head clearly wasn't the cause of all this ruckus... Nice.

Posted by dannibalcorpse on January 06, 2017 at 02:39 PM

I was randomly looking through Teemu's career stats and realized that he had an odd number of PIMs during 2010-11, so I knew I had to track down a TEEMU FIGHT. Fun watching Clifford get completely housed and then having that segue into Teemu getting into a scrap. This wasn't the best fight, but the fact that Selanne is involved automatically makes it better than average. TEEMU FOREVER.

Posted by Double Nickels on April 12, 2011 at 04:11 AM

Selanne clearly does not want to fight. Love the guy, but not enough to invent a fight that just isn't there and a result that is clearly not.

Posted by flanagon on April 11, 2011 at 09:30 AM

BILLY JACK you just showed us all how little you really know about the sport of Hockey. Also you need to check your stats "selanne towers over him" Selanne 6'0" Richardson 5'11" "selanne at 40 dropping the gloves against a a guy half his size" So did you think that Teemu is 11'10" tall or did you think Richardson is 3'0" tall "now every kid is calling him awesome for holding on to little richardson" Well what can I say to this awesome statement..... Maybe they are calling him awesome because he is a future HOFer and has contributed so much to the game of hockey both on and off the ice. I usually dont even respond to a stupid statement like this.... but you have no knowledge of the game if you think that the only "Man were is your fighting spirit" has to do with dropping the gloves you are a moron.

Posted by LA KING FANATIC on April 11, 2011 at 11:20 AM

The camera did not show what happened, Selane took the shots and missed on all of his, not much of a fight but Richardson won this one.

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 31, 2015 at 09:54 AM

Gotta Give it to Richardson.

Posted by Bosoxshute on April 10, 2011 at 08:51 PM

Im still waiting for Teemu's career ending neck injury...

Posted by tiburon4 on April 10, 2011 at 02:47 AM

STarted out weird but ended up good. Draw though.

Posted by piney on April 11, 2011 at 04:49 PM

why was Richardson still on the ice?

Posted by BritishRedWing on April 10, 2011 at 07:56 PM

Draw. All the Duck homers are blinded because TS drops the gloves, but it is still a draw.

Posted by hammertown on April 10, 2011 at 09:44 AM

Richardson and Matt Cooke are from Belleville. That town should be nuked for producing the biggest assholes and cowards in the world. Easy win for Teemu.

Posted by koolpunch on April 10, 2011 at 10:57 AM

Wouldn't normally call a winner with the lack of camera work...but giving Selanne the win. Props to the old guy for keeping the puck in the corner despite all the dirty work on him...then finishing his own battle by dropping them...

Posted by T-Wild76 on April 10, 2011 at 01:30 PM

Selanne's a killer!!!

Posted by snowave on April 10, 2011 at 12:44 PM

Wow, Selanne not only fights, wins. the slo mo at the very end of this clip shows him connecting on a right. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI1lvMzjESo The Kings are really a bunch of classless punks. Glad they got spanked this weekend.

Posted by travist on April 13, 2011 at 12:31 AM

i hate the ducks being a east coast transplant and following the kings the past several years, but good on selanne. took him 40 years to stand up for himself...damn clifford got bonked...bonked good.

Posted by gotchabari on April 11, 2011 at 05:54 PM

@billy jack... Selanne dropped gloves because Richardson pucnhed in the back of the head during the play (after Johnson cross-checked and boarded him). If he isn't a killer, then the chump shouldn't try pulling crap like that.

Posted by Charlie54 on March 13, 2016 at 11:38 PM

Teemu is the GOAT

Posted by Raoul Duke 708 on April 13, 2011 at 01:12 PM

Teemu, the first ballot hall of famer, dropping his mits for the first time at age 40... he could have left on a stretcher and I'd still give him the W!

Posted by billy jack on April 11, 2011 at 05:18 PM

selanne being much bigger but shows why he never fought,because he doesnt have the stones,he just hung on to the much smaller richardson.PS:you guys act like richardsons a killer ,hes 5'10 180lbs.selanne towers over him yet just hung on,selanne at 40 dropping the gloves against a a guy half his size and you peg him a hero.hell if selanne is so tough he could of fought guys his size and age years ago.But he had guys do that for him.I cant understand how you could be 40 and never dropped the gloves.Man were is your fighting spirit.now every kid is calling him awesome for holding on to little richardson lol.PS:flanogon im sorry i said twice the size,but richardson aint 5;11 no matter what the stats say,are the stats correct that say tootoo is 5:10 lol.Hey pronger still wants a go with, salanne that could be good right.
