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!
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
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.
Pretty even fight. Anderson landed the best punch of the fight at the beginning of the fight. Wouldn't argue a draw either.
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.
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
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.
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!
BENN by a hair
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
What do you want in a Captain? The answer is Jamie Benn. Mean spirited scrap that was too close to call. Draw.
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.
Like them both! Great tilt!
Both landed good shots I’d give it a draw
Awesome scrap. Best fight I’ve seen in a long time. Draw and 8
Wow, an actual fight like the old days, first one this year?
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.
Benn had the takedown, but Anderson landed some good shots, couple uppercuts. Draw.
An absolute old fashioned slugfest I'll rate it an 8 Let's call it a respectful draw
That's what i'm talking about!! Draw 8
Good fight. Both players landed 2 big shots. Benn does it all.
Benn with edge.. left punch decided.
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..
Very good fight and close. I gave the edge to benn who I felt landed the cleaner punches.
Good fight, even draw
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
Very nearly a draw, but I'd give Benn the edge and myself the Stars fan bias? Anderson is a tough sob. :P
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.
Lots of heavy blows. Great fight
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
A very good fight. Lots of spirit in this one and some good punches were landed.
I swear only has greats he doesn’t throw them a lot but when he does he can bang
Benn in BEAST MODE!!
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.
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"
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.
Some good ferocity and chucks .... I see the edge to Anderson. V close
Draw. Benn landed a solid left, but Anderson was more aggressive imo
Great old fashioned hockey! Love it!
I'm inclined to give Anderson the win but I'll go with a draw and a 6
Nice replay on the early left by Benn, but that kind of woke Anderson up. Great tilt. Draw and an 8.
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.
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.
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.
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.....
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
