Bieksa is one tough SOB. Especially for his size, and he's no spring chicken. Win KB3

Watson gets manhandled in every fight.

Posted by EK65 on March 11, 2017 at 06:41 PM

This Watson kid has got some heart. Bieksa steps up and throws absolute bombs on the kid and he stands there with a big smile on his face. Win Bieksa & 5

Great fight. Bieksa with the win here, but good showing by both guys. I gave it a 7. This was one of the better games I've seen this year, entertainment wise.

Bieksa totally manhandling Watson here. FOTY candidate. Of course we get the quote of bieksa haters no matter what happened.

Posted by jerry s on March 08, 2017 at 05:05 AM

bieksa sealed the fight at the end

Posted by bigmike53 on March 08, 2017 at 08:48 PM

Bieksa comes on strong to win this scrap with the game Watson. Good stuff!

Posted by Vito514 on March 08, 2017 at 12:56 AM

Thank god for this one. This makes up for the boll snooze fest. Good spirited fight. I like watson but bieksa fuccs him up here. Impressive.

Posted by rocky 1 on March 08, 2017 at 04:34 PM

A lot closer than most voted here but I give the edge to Bieska ! Size might give you a strength advantage but not necessarily a fighting advantage.Fighting is a skill strength is an asset.

Posted by BooSanta on March 08, 2017 at 01:15 PM

Entertaining tilt. Bieska once again taking on, bull-rushing and switching up on a bigger fighter for the win. Watson even got his elbow pad off, then Bieska goes ambidextrous. Two hands are better than one.

Bieksa is a tough SOB. He actually mandhandles a bigger guy and puts a pretty good beating on him.

Posted by Hilaker on March 08, 2017 at 11:12 AM

Good fight. Lot of credit to Bieksa for taking on a bigger dude and throwing punches instead of clutching and grabbing. Watson has that look of saying "I did not know he was actually going to fight". Win to Bieksa and loss to all the Bieksa nay sayers from the past.

Posted by jwreilly23 on March 08, 2017 at 12:59 AM

Wow. Two guys throwing with bad intentions for about 30 seconds...ending with Bieksa landing three right to the head as the linemen step in. Fight of the year so far.

Posted by lucic17 on March 08, 2017 at 07:48 AM

What happened to the spot-picking pussy who played for the Canucks? Bieska throws them like he means it and shows his strength against a bigger man (like his fight against Simmonds). I am very impressed. I only wish he had done this since day one. Maybe he is getting ornery in his old age.

Posted by AxlRose91 on March 08, 2017 at 01:02 PM

Despite all the people who call him a spot-picker, Bieksa continues to fight bigger opponents with reputations as experienced fighters, and he continues to win consistently Best pound-for-pound fighter in the league. He destroys Watson here

Posted by JakeDiamond on February 25, 2018 at 01:25 AM

I hate Watson. Bieksa Win.

Posted by DARCY T on April 12, 2017 at 09:20 AM

good fight.reach advantage vs experiences...it was a close fight and it seems like bieksa knocked watson off balance at the end but it doesnt seem like he connected with his head.watson early,bieksa late...im fine either with draw or edge bieksa

Posted by kimo_coyote on May 23, 2017 at 03:21 PM

IMHO Bieksa is a POS but props for his play and fight His actions last night right at the end of the game one example of my opinion of him.

Posted by SURESHOT27 on March 09, 2017 at 12:24 PM

i don't see how bieksa get the win from so many.....draw

Posted by traveller on March 09, 2017 at 09:48 AM

I felt it was a draw, they both hit a few shots, but I thought a lot of swinging from both with very little damage.

Posted by slysi on May 31, 2017 at 04:24 PM

BOYCOTT ALL HELMET FIGHTS ! How can you judge a fight about punches to a lid made for PROTECTING the head from jolts ? The fans slapping the glass know just how the combatants feel ! and why do some total piss ants think it is so manly to slap the glass ??

Posted by Jellyczar on March 08, 2017 at 02:18 PM

Lots of activity and landed shots... Bieksa strong with the uppercuts

Posted by Tallon on March 14, 2017 at 11:25 PM

closer fight than the sum of the votes would indicate. Slight not to Bieksa. Watson wasn't hurt.

Posted by Jflah53 on March 10, 2017 at 05:19 PM

Watched this one twice… Maybe my computer sent the wrong video, but this appeared to be a typical Bieska Bi**h fight.. He tried the usual "sneak attack", missed then fell down… So after that didn't work, it seemed pretty even after that… Both traded punches, with even the announcers saying he knows how to tie people up…. Bieska Bi**h rarely will go toe to toe with anyone who knows how to fight… Thought this was a draw

Posted by devilsadvocate on March 08, 2017 at 07:30 PM

I would give Bieksa the edge, but more for the fact he outmuscled Watson, and yanked him around a bit, than for actually landing more punches. Most of the punches by either guy missed, or hit pads. When Bieksa first came into the league, he was really good, then not so good in the middle part of his career. Now he's back to more like his early days. But the guy always threw them like he meant them, win, lose or draw. It will never happen, but I'd like to see a Bieksa - Brett Gallant fight.

Posted by English_Bruin on March 08, 2017 at 12:48 PM

Both tried and failed mserably, draw

Posted by nuckles88 on March 08, 2017 at 06:01 AM

Bieksa is the sh*t, gives the big guy a good tune up

Posted by millsandy52 on March 14, 2017 at 03:12 PM

Great job by Watson against a much more experienced fighter.

Posted by Mounty in NC on March 08, 2017 at 09:11 AM

Bieksa with the win but not sure it's worthy of a 7... I'll give it a 5

Posted by Humper on March 08, 2017 at 12:00 PM

I don't much like Bieksa (due mainly to his past Canucks' affiliation) but he comes on here like the Energizer Gorilla and wails the tar out of big Watson.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on March 08, 2017 at 11:11 AM

I don't think much landed flush, but you have to go Bieksa here. I still want to see him get destroyed one of these days, but it doesn't look like it will ever happen... guy can handle himself.

Posted by JG17 on March 08, 2017 at 01:48 AM

Watson is giving Curtis Mackenzie a run for his money in amount of ass kickings received.

Posted by DucksNation on March 08, 2017 at 01:43 AM

Bieksa a vastly underrated fighter specially for his size. If the linesman doesn't jump in there he would of finished Watson. Great scrap Bieksa lands some bombs.
