Man I love Jamie Benn. Has solid tilts regularly. I'm not a Stars supporter but gotta love an all round game. What a captain!

Posted by staceyb on November 14, 2018 at 09:23 AM

I was at the game and have to give the decision to Captain Jamie--you could hear that left to the chin--a loud pop--way up in the cheap seats. But watching the replay I was puzzled by Jamie's pre-fight maneuvering, facing his team bench before engaging Anderson mano a mano. I guess he was looking for fight tips. Jamie Benn has now been in two of the best fights in the early season, the other being against Miles Wood in New Jersey.

Wow... The guy who puts the B in captain answers the bell in an old-school throw-back scrap from beginning to end that... considering the overall decline in the frequency and quality of fighting in general this season... might have to be considered a candidate for FOTY Draw out of respect for the effort(s) and nasty recklessness

Posted by Screaming Buffalo on November 12, 2018 at 11:24 PM

Benn fights are always exciting because he doesn't do the stupid jersey jab and he plays very little defense. He just throws bombs and if he gets hit back then so be it. Even his bad fights where nothing lands are exciting to watch because it's just chaos.

Paybacks are a bitch. 1st view made it look closer. Replay showed Anderson missed when Benn ducked away. Win to Benn.

In a wild heavy weight tilt. What a bout. Benn

Wish they were micd up, would love to know what benn said to his bench.

Posted by Kamilli on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

I swear only has greats he doesn’t throw them a lot but when he does he can bang

Posted by Treyness on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

Benn in BEAST MODE!!

Posted by grepple on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

Benn sucks.

Posted by surfmaster69 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

Pretty even fight. Anderson landed the best punch of the fight at the beginning of the fight. Wouldn't argue a draw either.

Posted by Thechipperguy on November 13, 2018 at 05:37 PM

Very close looked like Benn landed more, solid knuck’s. Most of Anderson’s were glancing but had two that landed strong. Benn’s 2nd effort to stand Andreson up had two more throws that made good contact. The fists at the end from Anderson were ducked well.

Posted by Aecon13 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

I think some of you may just be voting for Benn because of how good of a player he is. Josh Anderson clearly won this fight. Landed far more clear punches

Posted by jskelly1195 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

I did not know that Jamie Benn was one to hold a grudge. I think that these two may be headed for some future bouts.

Posted by IActuallyPlayHockey on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

What a GREAT fight. Two guys who can play, have what will likely be the fight of the year! I went draw because I dont think there was a loser in that fight!

Posted by ironbar44 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

BENN by a hair

Posted by GCBC00 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

Great, spirited fight with some angry punches being thrown. Going with the a draw, as both Men threw some great shots. A bit sloppy, but regained their composure. *on a side note, it is great to, finally, be able to access my HF.COM account. Felt naked without being able to chime in. Please, enjoy your Christmas week!!!🏒

Jamie takes on big guys

Posted by dandy4 on October 06, 2022 at 11:51 AM

Good fight

Posted by bigmike53 on November 13, 2018 at 01:47 AM

What do you want in a Captain? The answer is Jamie Benn. Mean spirited scrap that was too close to call. Draw.

Posted by mr. puttzo on November 12, 2018 at 11:31 PM


Posted by Flyers2019 on November 12, 2018 at 11:18 PM

I’m gonna give this one a draw. Jamie Benn might be the best captain in the league right now. Anderson is tough dude and a superstar like Benn seeks revenge for the hit last game. Great tilt by two guys I wish were flyers. No fart or shit jokes here guys. Give it a strong 6.

Posted by heffenator on November 14, 2018 at 10:25 AM

Like them both! Great tilt!

Posted by nirvana on November 12, 2018 at 11:18 PM

Both landed good shots I’d give it a draw

Posted by tacomania on November 13, 2018 at 06:34 PM

Nice draw

Posted by gsrae on November 16, 2018 at 11:58 PM

Awesome scrap. Best fight I’ve seen in a long time. Draw and 8

Posted by sedinfan on November 13, 2018 at 10:18 PM

Wow, an actual fight like the old days, first one this year?

Posted by GreatMurray on November 14, 2018 at 06:07 PM

Old time fight from a couple of guys that get it. What a great show for their teams. Can you imagine being on either bench. Can't find a winner here. I found two...In most cases to call a fight a draw is a black mark against the participants, In this case it is a medal of bravery and toughness. Good on both of you...I wish my team had you both.

Posted by Leaf_Freak on November 13, 2018 at 03:23 PM

Benn had the takedown, but Anderson landed some good shots, couple uppercuts. Draw.

Posted by EK65 on November 15, 2018 at 08:04 PM

An absolute old fashioned slugfest I'll rate it an 8 Let's call it a respectful draw

Posted by Attikdrum on November 15, 2018 at 06:15 PM

That's what i'm talking about!! Draw 8

Posted by War on November 17, 2018 at 11:06 PM

Good fight. Both players landed 2 big shots. Benn does it all.

Posted by powerforward92 on November 14, 2018 at 03:45 AM

Benn with edge.. left punch decided.

Posted by mullet33 on November 15, 2018 at 01:38 AM

This may be the year Benn decides to screw the "we can't have our best players in the box or hurt" theory. Since Anderson was game tonight, surprised this didn't happen last week when Anderson was running a muck. Guess the score was too close but now at 0-0 with nothing to lose (but some teeth) it was game on. Benn Early, Anderson Middle and Benn Late. I think Benn thought after the first two lefts connected, this will be easy but got to give it to Anderson, he handled his own. They both show 185#, 6-1" & 6-2" but for some reason Josh looks bigger. Whatever the case, Benn w/the slight edge since he had the only clear connections, be it of a weaker nature..

Posted by rocky 1 on November 16, 2018 at 04:56 PM

Very good fight and close. I gave the edge to benn who I felt landed the cleaner punches.

Posted by ironbar44 on November 13, 2018 at 05:30 PM

Good fight, even draw

Posted by tyler_ljay on November 16, 2018 at 11:13 PM

Love to see the young rookie Heiskanen looking on while the captain shows em how it's done. Bringing this kid up right. God dammit I love this team

Posted by J3fff on November 13, 2018 at 12:07 AM

Very nearly a draw, but I'd give Benn the edge and myself the Stars fan bias? Anderson is a tough sob. :P

Posted by DaultonC on November 13, 2018 at 11:53 AM

Old school brawl. Nasty stuff, love to see it. Jamie had control of most of that fight and if you had to give it to someone Benn gets the W. Incredible effort on both sides.

Posted by StickyFingers on November 16, 2018 at 04:11 PM

Lots of heavy blows. Great fight

Posted by brianhanie23 on November 13, 2018 at 12:34 PM

Gave the edge to Benn because of the direct chin hit. Was close maybe fight of the year. Benn seems to qualify for fight ofthe year everyone he fights

Posted by Ethereal on November 13, 2018 at 01:56 PM

A very good fight. Lots of spirit in this one and some good punches were landed.

Posted by runningwithnjd on November 14, 2018 at 09:38 PM

Great fight!

Posted by Humper on November 13, 2018 at 02:47 PM

Pretty even match, although that shot on the chin by Benn gives him enough for the win. This is the type of fight we need going forward - decent skill and lots of emotion.

Posted by bash_bros on November 13, 2018 at 06:32 AM

Good fight. Love how Benn skates to the Dallas bench before starting. That's a captain trying to motivate his team. "Watch this boys, and then let's go"

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on November 13, 2018 at 01:33 PM

Good shit! We don't get this kinda tilt too much these days, but when Benn drops the mitts, it's usually some of the better action you'll see. Dude is definitely a throwback, and a very welcome one in today's league. Very spirited fight, but I'll give the edge to Benn for the more impactful connections.

Posted by Jellyczar on November 18, 2018 at 01:12 PM

Some good ferocity and chucks .... I see the edge to Anderson. V close

Posted by waddinc on November 13, 2018 at 11:11 AM

Draw. Benn landed a solid left, but Anderson was more aggressive imo

Posted by 1mbob on November 13, 2018 at 09:17 AM

Great old fashioned hockey! Love it!

I'm inclined to give Anderson the win but I'll go with a draw and a 6

Posted by Spartan2424 on November 13, 2018 at 11:44 PM

Solid draw

Posted by Biggus on November 14, 2018 at 01:53 PM

Nice replay on the early left by Benn, but that kind of woke Anderson up. Great tilt. Draw and an 8.

Posted by stykface on November 13, 2018 at 10:11 AM

This was a good bout. Anderson showed more ferocity but a draw in the end as Benn landed a couple of better ones. Coming from a Stars fan in Dallas.

Posted by ChaalSe on November 14, 2018 at 10:15 AM

Anderson landed more punches and had Benn defending himself until the end, when Benn managed to get momentum in his favor to wrestle Anderson to the ground. Anderson with the win.

Posted by woolly mammoth on November 13, 2018 at 06:38 PM

As feisty and ferocious as an emotionally fueled brawl between long feuded, unspoken relatives at a family cookout for a holiday gathering to praise Raptor Jesus, Saint Nick, genocide against natives, or some other invented day of celebration, Anderson seemingly wins the close fight, specifically hurting Benn at the 20 second mark, which caused Benn to turn away and temporarily turtle. I give this fight, seven family feuded cookouts out of ten.

Posted by boldbilly on November 13, 2018 at 03:37 AM

Wow one hell of a scrap here.....both of these guys had their moments.....I’m going with a draw here and a score of 7..... I really like the scoring percentages here because you can make an argument for either fighter.....and if pressed I would give the slight edge to Benn for that one he lands early......but draw is the way to go.......more fights like this one please.....

Posted by wildfan4eva on November 13, 2018 at 12:49 PM

Whoa! First of all, how's this fight rated so high? I understand good fights are hard to come by these days, but almost an 8? No way, 6.5 AT BEST! Secondly, I could care less for EITHER player, so no swayed voting here..... Let's get real folks, Anderson landed the better of punches throughout the fight, and although the fight overall WAS CLOSE, JA did more in terms of quality and power..... Lastly, seeing how many people gave this fight to Benn TRULY shows how sad voting has become around here...too bad....f'n kids
