Other Penalties: Phaneuf received a slashing.
Three-fifths of a perfect date: -some dancing - lots of hugging - both wind up prone with one on top of the other All that was missing was a few drinks and a goodnight kiss.
' 5 minutes each for wasting my time. Draw. '
Tough guy Phaneuf being the princess again....
Who woulda thunk that Phaneuf is actually a bigger idiot than Sean Avery.
Pha'GOOF is an EPIC FAIL as captain...going after a non-fighter down 6-1...what a jagOFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
Typical Phaneuf: Out of pure frustration he starts a fight with a pansy who has never dropped the gloves in his life …and loses. Yes, LOSES. I'm voting for Kreider here because he outmuscled Phaneuf to the ice in one of the crappiest fights you'll ever see. The fact that Phaneuf is the Leafs Captain says a lot about the mentality of the organization. The guy has no class, no heart and has been a cheap shot artist since day one when he came into the league. Congratulations to Dion (a true girl's name) Phaneuf: You've made the top five "Cowards of the NHL" in my book. No wonder why no one respects Phaneuf and his nickname around the league is: "Sloppy Seconds".
Phanuef, who is one of the NHL's worst fighters takes on a non fighter and still accomplishes nothing. Draw and a 2.
First NHL fight for Chris Krieder . . . against a Phaneuf, who's more accustomed to this part of the game . . . and it all started with a nice, clean, hard HIT by Krieds on a frustrated Phaneuf. Not much of a fight, couldn't get his gloves off until half way through but give the win to Krieds for the clear takedown. What a statement GAME for Krieds, you can see just how STRONG he is. On HNIC they showed a clip of him jumping out of a pool . . . the kid's a beast
Phaneuf, one of the biggest sissys in the NHL with Kevin Bieksa. Draw.
they should both get a game misconduct for wasting the fans money. I wouldn't spend 5 cents to see either one of these guys play let alone fight , I mean dance!
Phaneuf bud.... disgraceful.. draw on a nothing bout
`three fifths of a perfect date`..well said Humper ! Dion,can you sing ?can you dance?..you sure can`t fight. joe heathen says
Kreider has dreaded this moment, having to fight someone. Well.. he still hasn't.
Dion is a clown.
Kreider is never gonna be a tough guy, but at least he answered the bell unlike Orpik.
To badly paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield "I went a hockey game and a wrestling match broke out"
Clear draw in a nothing fight.
not a good showing by kreider in his fighting debut.he held on to phaneuf's jersey little bit too much instead of throwing punches..crap draw
I have to go draw here........I'm sure the ghost of Sean Avery was hoping his buddy sloppy seconds was going to get a beating like a good many of us would have enjoyed seeing........SADLY IT DIDN'T HAPPEN HERE......phagneuf with the usual stick work and the slash.......What a cowardly loser.
Not much of a fight. I do like Kreider showing willingness to get scrappy. Phaneuf is overpaid and overpriced, sorry Toronto.
With all due respect, I would expect more "anti-Boston type comments" directed at Phaneuf. He's terrible. Chris Kreider? Dion's trying to justify the big contract extension
Visor fight. Draw. Zzz....
Can't really vote any other way except draw. 1st fight for Kreid's and he handled it well but can't give him the win. He did end up on top but Phaneuf was in control up til then.
i was hoping dion was gonna get his ass handed to him. i guess it was too much to hope for
I thought the Prosser-Brouwer fight was boring…..then I watched this fight.
KREIDER did not even attempt a punch let alone land one. PHANEUF is an idiot landed a few on the shoulder . they fall down .should have been 2 each for delay of game. but hate draws but the rangers kid didnt throw any he cant get a win
The Logo de Toilet Seat Brigade out in full force voting against the Leaf player Must have been tough to stomach pk soupcan giving up his usual undisciplined penalty; and "five-hole" price giving up the winner So take it out on Canadas team Q- What was sprinkled on the poutine to have anyone think there was a winner in this non event? WISHING???
Why would Kreider bother dropping the gloves, when he's clearly petrified?
Phanuef, this is why you should keep your gloves on, FatDog, do you always have " jizz" on your mind? have ya seen Mark Dyrzynski yet? Or does he have a Christine Neil spit bib on staring at the stars? FU Fatdog, have a stroke
Not much of a fight with Kreider holding on and Dion with the only punches landed.
Phaneuf should have gotten a double minor for slashing, 5 minute major for butt ending, and 5 for fighting, if you can call what they did a fight. Phaneuf is one of those guys who likes to hit and hurt people, but can't take a bump without getting his panties all in a bunch.
Not really much of a fight. No punches thrown, just some grabbing, spinning and a throw to the ice with Kreider on top. Only reason I game him the edge otherwise it was a crap fight.
Rangers have a new heavy! Lol, good for Kreider, had to happen sooner or later and not getting pummeled actually should help his confidence to play hard. I gave him win since rangers need a win, but really a draw. LOL 47 reviews
Agree with Dave Maloney that Kreider will need to fight a little. He is a real monster with the puck, big and very strong and he will get challenged. Phaneuf is no lite weight but he did not look very interested in fighting. Sather will need to start having his good players protected a bit or Kreider will wind up being in the penalty box too much. Having said that it does not stop Lucic from being physical.
Chris Everett in a win win situation w the win. Keeping the memory of Michael Sauer alive.......maybe. Maybe not. RIP MS
Give Kreider the win. Simply because Dion is supposed to be the scrapper here. @ Humper Funny stuff Bud.
Celine "Dion" should be embarrassed Hunts down a kid who has never fought in his life, in his life, and gets thrown on his back like The Turtle he is. Good clean hit on Celine and he gets pissy. Two weeks ago in MSG he tried to fight Kris Kringle Kreider and he wouldn't go then. He should have hunted for Boyle The Punching Bag. ZUCCARELLO at 5'7" and a buck seventy probably a good match for Phewnuff. Celine sings same old song - won't fight anyone of substance - if challenged usually ducks out and looks for bench - i.e. Brendan Prust last 3 times. Always tough on little guys - Doves. LEAF FANS demand a new Captain! Pathetic
I'm a Rangers fan and I like that Kreider drops the gloves here but this really ain't a fight--this is a wrestling match. Phaneuf is famous for picking his spots though. Just listening to some Rangers fans who think he's some kind of tough guy. Talk about to lunch. Kreider could use some fighting lessons--unfortunately there's no one on the current Rangers team capable of teaching him--maybe the asst. coach Daniel Lacroix. He had a lot of fights in his day. Kudos to the rookie though for sticking up for himself.
Phaneuf, being the C at 49 Million, should of handled Kreider, but he didn't. Leafs forgot they had a game tonight .
Kreider had been in Dion's face for much of the game; they'd almost gone earlier in the period. For $7 million a season Dion did not show much effort in the fight but he logged an awful lot of minutes when Gunnarsson went down in the first period.
Phaneuf is a piece of isht. someone needs to break his face into pieces.
Fight wasnt much more than an attempt to vent frustration.. by Phaneuf what a game by kreider though..
The Russian judge gave this ice dancing couple a 9. I gave it a 2. What a waste of time, effort and energy.
RANGERS ALL THE WAYY
Hahahahahaha. Phagoof is a clown. Schenn was a better fighter. 7-1 Nice game Leafies!!!!! The wheels come off so early this year. Woof Belch!! Jizz stained Orr jersey!!!! That's odd, I don't see Laffs2006 running his usual weak smack....odd. Hey dummy, why is your clown Laffs captain starting a fight with a visor on?
Paneuf picks his spot and stuggles to a draw against a guy who has never fought before. Glad the Leaves locked him up for 10 years. The curse of the bambino lives on in Toronto.
Pathetic display as per usual by Diedre
Typical Phaneuf big time loser....why the heck would the leafs give him 7 mil.
These two should get a room.
These two guys better be careful...guys dancing with guys is probably not as widely accepted in the NHL as it is in Key West! I can see the headlines in the San Francisco Chronicle Sports Section now..."La Poof had a cat fight with Krissie over who was going to be on top!"
Was there a fight? Not really, but Kreider did his job. Kid is strong and wins the wrestling match. Shame on Phafluff. If you're going to start with a kid, you better finish. Kreider and a 2. Maybe John Moore isn't the toughest guy in the Rags lineup.
I know everyone hates Phaneuf but there is no way you give him a loss in this one. Heck, he is the only one that made a fist. No shots landed by either fighter in a crap fight but Kreider certainly doesn't deserve a W. Draw
Draw. Kreider just holds on and Dion lands nothing.
A frustrated Phaneuf gets wrestled to the ground. There were maybe 3 weak attempts to throw a punch.
Nice to see two grown men lovingly embrace for 20 seconds. NOT!
Phaneuf Suck !!!
That was not a fight. It was gay. Nothing wrong with that unless you are describing a hockey fight.
Phaneuf "Hugging" it up again. Where is Orr this season?
Kreider's first fight and Phaneuf is no kitten. A draw. Not bad, though crappy fight. I'd like to see hem learn to fight, imagine the room he'd get. Ridiculously fast and strong and still filling out at about 235 pounds. One of the few bright spots for the Rangers this year with 11 goals in about 35 games so far as a rookie.
Phaneuf is such a whimp, driving to the game in his Bentley wearing a tuxedo. Honestly how can anyone like this piece of crap, he probably gets a manicure and pedicure before each game.
Phaneuf is the biggest excuse of a captain I have ever seen, absolutely pathetic
Phaneuf got paid 48 millions too much on is contract....
Phaneuf is about as good of a fighter as he is a captain. Terrible. Boyle challenged Phaneuf much earlier in this game and he coward away like he does to anyone. Turning his cheek and all. Waiting for Orr to skate in and protect him. (Anyone who watches hockey fights KNOWS the Brian Boyle also cannot fight). To me these are not actions of a captain. Orr then goes after Boyle (another fighter vs non fighter tale) for the rest of the game so Dion doesn't have to stand up for himself. Then finally Phaneuf goes after a non fighter in Kreider (NO NHL FIGHTS) for a clean and legal hit after giving him an illegal slash and he STILL can't win the fight. No respect for Dion Phaneuf at all here. Worst 49 million spent ever? Fight was a DRAW.
Kreider asked for the fight and then didn't. However; he was smart to not trade blows with the heavy hitting Phaneuf.
