how is that an instigator and misconduct he pretty much said lets go and waited for bradely who dropped them first

Is sweater pulling and tractor pulling really a sport ? No. both are boring as was this tug fest.

Posted by Big_Goon on January 14, 2008 at 03:18 PM

Draw.

Terrible. 2 minutes for roughing, in my book.

Posted by mikebflorida on January 14, 2008 at 09:48 AM

Crap fight and even crappier call against Smith for the instigator. Wake up Bettman, this was a prototype for fighting in the NHL. Bradley had his friggin gloves off before Smith did! Are the refs retarded or what?

Posted by chl37 on January 14, 2008 at 08:10 AM

clean hit. not much of a fight. draw.

Posted by Sublimezx on January 16, 2008 at 02:57 PM

You people are idiots! Bradley was holding Smiths arm the entire fight! He couldnt get away...Bradley isnt dumb, his ass was finished if smith got free!

Posted by slshbleed on January 14, 2008 at 08:06 AM

They got all tied up, but at least, they were trying to get into a position to throw punches. The linesmen came in too quickly.

Posted by Jake98 on January 14, 2008 at 03:46 AM

It was a nice hit. Kapanen can't keep his head up. Fight was horrible

Posted by shack on January 14, 2008 at 12:44 PM

I just love the way Smith stands up for his mates. No winner here, I'll call it a draw.

Posted by DMills56 on January 14, 2008 at 10:32 AM

This is a shining example of why the instigator rule is bogus

Posted by Juha82 on January 14, 2008 at 09:31 AM

A draw in my book. Only slight edge to Bradley as he was only one who did something. But he didn't land a punch though, just grazed a coule time? Smith handled well to Bradley jerseying him at the end.

fight?

Posted by TOOTOO_FAN on January 15, 2008 at 03:19 PM

good job SMITH for taking up for is teammate! But BRADLEY held his own

Posted by DARCY T on January 14, 2008 at 03:31 AM

i dont think any punch landed.draw

Posted by The Peach on January 14, 2008 at 05:15 PM

smith wanted to get that right hand loose. no luck. draw.

Posted by bluesrule08 on January 14, 2008 at 02:43 PM

great hit by bradley...smith is a good teammate and it's good to see him respond in that way...i gave it a draw

Posted by grimson on January 14, 2008 at 03:59 PM

HOLY SHIIT!!!! Kapanen got STEAM ROLLED. That was a Awsome Hit. Glad he was ok. I give this one a Draw. I heard "Stitches" mentioned so I have to believe Smith would be who they are referring to and maybe that was why he wasn't as vibrant as usual in that bout. DRAW!!!

Posted by MakaveliTrained on January 14, 2008 at 10:18 AM

did smith even throw a punch!? bradley wins cause he wasnt defending the whole time

Posted by CujoSmith on January 14, 2008 at 03:22 AM

smith got the oldschool hockey jersey over the head move on bradley and could have easily uppercutted him as much as he wanted but let the linesmen come in and end it

Posted by lovejoy on January 14, 2008 at 06:47 AM

i'd like to know, what are the linesmen rules for breaking up the stings when the jersey is over one's head. Sometimes they let them go, sometimes they step in very quikly...

Posted by hkhk on January 14, 2008 at 05:26 PM

not much of a fight but at least jason smith stood up for sami kap.cheap shot by bradley ,also cote chased brashear around all game donald kept on skating...

Posted by Clark75 on January 14, 2008 at 12:47 PM

I didn't see Jason Smith throw one punch. What a loser. Why go in to defend your teamate by dropping the gloves, then not throw a punch. I don't get it. Unless he got hurt.

Posted by JOCCOCHRIS on January 17, 2008 at 12:30 AM

that was a sweet hit on kapanen

Posted by BattleAxe13 on January 14, 2008 at 05:56 PM

Yeah I agree, Smith doesn't have it anymore. He should stick to just slashing and cross checking people. Bradley threw several punches none of them landing really well but a few connected, maybe just brushed Smith.

Posted by buddha on January 14, 2008 at 05:38 AM

Clean hit by Bradley. Fair retaliation from Smith. The fight was mostly a hug fest, but at least Bradley landed a punch or two. Edge to Bradley.

Posted by SirYohans on January 14, 2008 at 01:48 PM

What the hell was that??? Smith instigates this fight and then just holds on and does nothing... Yeah, i know i know. People are gonna say well Smith is just trying to send a message to the other team. The only message i got out of this is "Smith doesn't know how to fight anymore."

Posted by Krahn on January 15, 2008 at 05:30 PM

CHEAP!

Posted by nofx8881 on January 14, 2008 at 12:11 PM

Absolute draw. I don't think either Bradley or Smith landed a punch so it's hard to pick a winner. Bogus instigator call, but it was a good job by Smith to engage Bradley. Kapanen got right up, but still, when a big guy runs over a little guy like that, you gotta do what you gotta do.

Posted by kastmaster on January 14, 2008 at 08:34 PM

It's intimidating to know that if you check someone while Jason is on the ice that he'll skate right over and stretch out your jersey. I guess it's too much to ask you throw a punch at 48 years old. Leave the fighting to Cote old man!

Posted by TBLightningGuru on February 16, 2008 at 09:07 AM

if your gonna stand up for a teammate at least throw a punch you lame duck draw

Posted by biglite351 on January 25, 2008 at 07:30 AM

Bradley with the ONLY offense, but it ends with both standing.

Posted by preds321 on January 14, 2008 at 11:55 AM

Not really sure why there was an instigator penalty here. Bradley looked more than willing to go when Smith challenged. That's a far cry from someone getting jumped after landing a clean check, which is what usually happens.....DRAW

Posted by Spaz on January 14, 2008 at 10:39 PM

Didn't Downey get 20 games for a hit like that? Smith has to come right in after that.

Posted by sandfrog on January 15, 2008 at 07:15 PM

Cool for Smith sticking up for his team mate. Would have been cooler if he actually landed a punch or two.

Posted by penguinsfan123 on January 14, 2008 at 11:22 AM

smith didnt want to throw so obviously loses here

Posted by Hamsterix on January 14, 2008 at 09:33 AM

good fight
