Anyone see the purses fly?

Hard to call this a fight...should have been roughing penalties at best!

Crap Fight

Posted by Sukoshi84 on October 12, 2007 at 01:10 PM

how can you fags say thats a fight and a win you Kova........? nothing landed except one right that hit staffords shoulder!!!!! clean hit also, th eonly reason staff lost his jersey is because Kova was ripping it off the give staff a good eastern euro hump n' dump

Posted by forsberg21 on October 08, 2008 at 02:40 AM

How can anyone give a win? No punches were landed...

Posted by sensaijin on October 12, 2007 at 02:03 PM

you'll 'win' every time if don't give the other guy time to drop his gloves.. not an evenly started fight, so the outcome doesn't matter.

Posted by Formerref on October 12, 2007 at 03:21 PM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That is just way too funny!!!

Posted by wylde_buzz on October 12, 2007 at 10:40 AM

crap fight....and as always Harry Neale getting the wrong players names, I"m glad he's off Hockey Night in Canada

cheap fight

Posted by xanatos on February 07, 2010 at 02:31 AM

stafford probably would have kicked the crap out of kovy if kovy didnt get the gloves off and pulled jersey'd stafford before he got the gloves off. nothing but a draw here folks

Posted by Rynryn on October 13, 2007 at 09:24 AM

holy jesus! Scary.

Posted by mcgrew36 on October 12, 2007 at 08:29 AM

Crappy fight. He needs to stick to scoring.

Posted by jrw89sbk on April 11, 2009 at 11:46 PM

Win Kovy.

Posted by The Chief on October 12, 2007 at 04:47 PM

Why did they even bother dropping the gloves?

Posted by mikebflorida on October 12, 2007 at 11:38 AM

This was nothing but humorous but it's always fun to see a "star" get aggressive like that.

Posted by headcharge on October 12, 2007 at 09:51 AM

Absolutely love how Kovalchuk immediately jerseys Stafford and just throws. Obviously doesn't know how to do too well, but you gotta love the Grimsonesque move.

Posted by alpo47 on October 12, 2007 at 08:15 AM

good to see the emotional outburst from a star player, but Ilya's lack of fighting experience was evident.

Posted by kennyj76 on December 24, 2007 at 10:04 AM

stafford. was trying to step up for tillinder. ended up gettin his ass kicked. hes tried this before with chris neil and other people. he shouldnt drop the gloves. he doesnt usually win...

Posted by cotefan92 on March 30, 2008 at 09:53 AM

Wow.

Posted by hit_the_post on October 12, 2007 at 10:10 PM

The Buffalo homer announcers talk about "his (Kovy's) shadow winning" but he stuck up for his teammate and landed the only blows in the scrap. Thrashers need grit!

Posted by Juha82 on October 14, 2007 at 12:44 PM

Kovalchuk was aggressor here. He had a clear pure adrenaline here, which causes well the win for him. Edge Kovalchuk.

Posted by DetroitIan on October 12, 2007 at 04:56 AM

Really not much of a fight. But the "W" goes to Kovalchuk for sure. If Stafford has stayed on his feet, it might have been a decent scrap. Nice to see Ilya throwing a few bombs. Gotta love that.

Posted by islandersfan39 on February 20, 2008 at 01:05 PM

i cnt blame ilya for what he did i disagree 100% with knee on knee but good fight

Posted by shane0mack on October 13, 2007 at 05:38 PM

"ive seen kovalchuk shadowbox and the shadow won every time" well kovalchuk won this one

Posted by hellaavangard on October 12, 2007 at 03:38 AM

Kovalchuk isn't the one that lost his jersey

Posted by Piglett31069 on October 13, 2007 at 11:35 AM

A great fight from a player who rarely fights (Kovalchuk). When he gets mad, look out...you may well see something like this!

Posted by foiler on October 01, 2009 at 01:40 AM

So glad Harry Neale is off HNIC.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on October 12, 2007 at 11:44 AM

I always like to see the bigger scoring names drop em to show they aren't going to take sh*t. Kovalchuk didn't look great but he won this one easy.

Posted by latendresse on February 16, 2008 at 01:25 AM

I hesitated between Draw and Kovalchuk because Stafford wasnt expecting that.. But Kovalchuk won

Posted by capsfloors on October 12, 2007 at 07:38 AM

Goonery...what fight are you watching? Stafford lost his jersey.....Announcers are horrible in this clip.."Ive seen Kovalchuk shadow box and the shadow wins every time". Well the shadow just beat up Stafford!

Posted by goonery31 on October 12, 2007 at 02:04 AM

They each got 5 for fighting the only thing Kovalchuk should have gotten was 2 mins for losing his jersey.Kovalchuk cant fight anyway.Lame!

Posted by dromano13 on October 19, 2007 at 01:59 PM

Buffalo Announcers are as bad as there fans. Kovy has been in a few scraps and I have never seen him hit. The whole city of Buffalo as well as its team lacks character.
