I am glad that "Douglas" has decided to toss his helmit/visor these days. Big props to him. I agree with some of the opinions on Ian but it did look like he got eye gouged. Someone stated that they wish the two could "get set before they engage each other". I don't know how much more set they could be. Murray talked the shit and Lappy went after him. What do you want a ref there to say "LET'S GET IT ON". Ian probably couldn't believe what he was hearing and was enthused by it. Ian is no Jamaal Mayers.

Posted by Sukoshi84 on October 07, 2007 at 11:45 PM

Posted by nicdawg29 on October 08, 2007 at 01:12 AM

Doug Murray vs Ian Laperriere Ian Laperriere puts a hit on Doug Murray along the boards. Murray doesn't like it too well, and has some words with Laperriere. Murray discards his helmet, and they each drop the gloves. They immediately get in close on each other. Murray throws a right, hitting Laperriere's helmet, then attempts to rip his helmet off, but has no luck. Laperriere gets his left hand free, and throws a few shots to the back of Murray's head. Then, Murray responds with some lefts, then switches to his right, throwing a few uppercuts. After that, they both wrestle each other to the ice, falling on their knees, and the linesmen intervene.

Draw, but huge points for Murray for taking off the helmet with visor before throwing.

Hey Laperriere - take your helmet off you pussy.

Too close to pick a winner

Posted by BattleAxe13 on October 08, 2007 at 04:11 PM

This was a rather boring fight. I gotta go with a draw. Punches were roughly even and ineffective.

Laperriere rams Murray in the boards,Murray sheds his visor to scrap clearly trying to rip Laperriere helment off but Laperriere doesnt let him.Okay scrap but Laperriere acted like a little wuss.

Grappling. No harm done. Draw.

brutal fight - hugfest

Murray's a big boy! Gotta give Laperriere credit...Biggest balls in the NHL!

Posted by Tiburon on October 10, 2007 at 09:17 PM

Not a great fight, but I gave the edge to Murray. Lappy jumped him before he could get his gloves off and then ended up just trying to pull Murray down on top of him. Didn't seem to want to really get into it. Murray always takes off his lid if he can. Stand up guy.

Murray uses a great 'stiff arm' to keep Laperriere away and land enough blows to win

Posted by Bloodbank on October 09, 2007 at 01:23 PM

What's with the face raking?

Posted by CitizenKein on October 08, 2007 at 03:11 AM

More of an eye pinning affair.

Posted by richrich99 on October 10, 2007 at 07:28 PM

not enough punches.. definate draw

Posted by Spon on October 08, 2007 at 04:47 PM

Murray with the eye gouge! what is this wrestling? THough I think he was going for the helmet...

Posted by Juha82 on October 08, 2007 at 11:20 AM

OK fight in my paper. Lappy landed more, but not much power behind his punches. Lappy landed well with one, that hits flush to the market. Murray did the same thing by his uppercut. In the end Murray pushed Lappy down to the ice. A draw.

Posted by paddyd on October 11, 2007 at 10:53 AM

nothing serious happened here. boys will be boys!

Posted by xJamesx on October 08, 2007 at 11:40 PM

I think all fighters should ditch their helmets like Murray, or else you're going to end up like Darcy Tucker and get a game misconduct because you ripped off your opponents helmet and it got stuck on your hand while you leveled him.

Posted by cabsf15e on October 08, 2007 at 02:48 AM

Typical Lappy...charges Murray to get the jump on him before Doug can even get his gloves off. After all these years I expect NO less from Lappy because he is a cheap shot artist...always has been and always will be. How about dropping them and squaring off for once Lappy, but that would be out of character for you!! Then he hung on to Murray for dear life, but he still got tagged.

Posted by wayneface_killa on October 08, 2007 at 01:40 PM

i like how murray took his helmet off considering he was wearing a visor. I saw a couple people in the preseason who were fighting and not taking their damn visors off.

Posted by mikebflorida on October 08, 2007 at 10:54 AM

I like this Murray fellow. Tosses the visor, not afraid to throw em. Laperriere is a goof ball. He's not very good at fighting and he isn't a very good player. He ought to go back to school or something.

Posted by mikem61 on October 08, 2007 at 05:55 PM

Murray wins.

Posted by islandersfan39 on February 20, 2008 at 01:14 PM

that is what more people need to do take the helmets off it should be done by every fighter i agreee with how murray started it good job

Posted by megnlou06 on October 08, 2007 at 10:42 PM

ok fight!

Posted by wingers on October 11, 2007 at 01:01 AM

good attitude, lame fight punches, not slaps murray

Posted by DetroitIan on October 07, 2007 at 11:35 PM

Weak bout right there. Ian Laperriere is a pussy in my opinion. He never does any real damage in any of his fights. Doug Murray wasn't looking too good either. Definitely a draw.
