win Richie Rich....wow Hanzels a Bigg'n..although he has Hal Gill-like Pugilistic skills
Richards did not land a thing. Hanzal controlled that fight and didn't want to hurt Richards. 1
How can anyone vote Richards as the winner? Crap fight!! Little kid body shots is all Richards was throwing. Its a joke!! The only LA King that wears big boy pants is Westgarth ( the only one that deserves to represent the LA King on this site ) the rest are little queens that show up to the rink wearing g-strings for a jock-strap.
it was kinda funny.richards tried so hard and hanzal didnt want to have piece of it.just observed richards from distance of his long arm and waited for richards to calm down...draw and 4
7 inch height advantage, and couldn't back up that charge? Pathetic.
Richards w/ the W or the taller, heavier, visored foe. Not sure the hit really called for the mitts being dropped but whatever.
Love Richards energy,if Hanzal knew what he was doing he could of destroyed Richards with height advantage,Richards knows how to handle himself,he gets the win,cause he tried harder and might of landed one or two!!

Every Time I hear the name ''Hanzal''... I can't help but think of that great Bugs Bunny, Hansel and Gretal episode, with the witch, and that ''Arnold Schwarzenegger accented'' prince. Win, Mike ''if you can't score, at least, fight'' Richards, over Martin ''Brian Boyle'' Hazal.
Hanzal had no desire to do anything other than look really tall.
Richie's first win in years.
richards gets the win in this fight.
Richards Wins. Martin is strong but not a fighter
Richards takes the fight but allows Carter to pass him in the "who can do less since leaving Philly" contest.
I don't care how big the euro weenie is...a fight against an OHL Alum will always be a mismatch. It was painfully obvious that Hanzal had no idea what he was supposed to do. Hanzal should get a pail, find Gretel and look for the candy house. The Phoenix announcers really sucked...worse than Edwards. Boo Hoo your little bitty guy beat up our big sissie...he better get extra penalties. As to the "Hanzal just doesn't fight" bullchit. Last 3 years Hanzal 6 fights, Richards 9. Big deal eh?
Hanzal can't fight. But at least he tried. Everyone gets a trophy and some pizza!
edge to Richards
have to give it to Richards, took on the bigger man and kept throwing, Hanzel needs to lose the helmet, no respect fo fighters who keep the lid on.
richars gave out the only money maker,hanzal looked lost
Great job Mike, took it to the much BIGGER Hanzal
Richards gets points on a good right thrown from an impossible angle and fighting wihtout the pantyshield. Not sure if Gretel even knows how to throw 'em.
has Hanzal ever fought?? the only thing he did here was "not die" guess Ill give him credit for staying on his feet
Just because you are 6'5 doesn't automatically mean you can fight, as proven here. Richards did a nice job....
Big Richards fan, after he got hit, he didn't care how big the other guy was, Richards skated up gave a slash and said let's go. W for Richards!
I do recall hanzal taking on toews at one point and winning but still not a fighter. Win to richards. Hanzal missed all his haymakers. And that hanzal's not so hot right now.
Perfect example of "it's not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog" Great win Richards, i love the passion and intensity!
win hanzal- he holds richards off like fighting your little brother with a stiff arm...
Hanzal doesn't fight. Just not his style of play, but it was hilarious to see him hold Richards away as he could barely land a hit. He did get a few on Hanzal but none the less, wasn't a great one regardless. especially considering Hanzal just doesn't fight.
What a prima donna commentator. I hope he cried on-air when he realized that Richards did not get the instigator package.
I'd say Richards actually wins one.
You don't see these two dropping them very much. Mike Richards was much more active and he landed the best punch, along with some body shots. Hanzal seemed to be more content with just hanging on. Richards gets the clear win over a guy who's 6 inches taller and 25 pounds heavier than him.
If i outweighed Richards by 40 pounds and was foot taller and lost a fight to Richards I would go into ice dancing
Great energy from Richards, who needed a step-stool to land shots on a big, but clearly wussified Martina Hanzal.....
If Richards was about 5 inches taller it would have been easy to call it a win for Richards, but since he couldn't even reach the dude... draw.
