"Jason Smith might be the softest dude in the league." lol, further proof that penguins fans might be the most retarded fans in hockey. next to rags fans. and sens fans. oh yeah, DRAW. giving either guy a win would be stupid. by the way takedowns mean absolutely nothing in a hockey fight.

Posted by DMills56 on February 19, 2008 at 05:06 PM

"Here comes another guy with gloves already dropped" -- are you retarded? Begin dropped his gloves before Smith did. What's the point of watching/voting on the fights if you guys are just gonna vote against any Flyer you see?

Posted by Flyersfan4life2 on February 19, 2008 at 02:07 PM

Munch, How are the flyers useless? Because there not winning hockey games of late? All teams go on skids like this. Tell the canadiens to get some real toughness, not panzys. Komisarek might be a tough guy, but he doesnt drop them enough to be considered a tough guy. Im jealous i cant watch a boring team everynight like the canadiens. I think the flyers are 3rd in the league in fighting majors, and the canadiens are like 20th. So that means most of our hockey games have some excitement, unlike yours. Hopefully we see you in the playoffs. Nice try on the insult on the flyers, ill give you a 3 for effort clown.

How is that hit a penalty!! I didn't see the game but the clip shows the Flyer passing the puck a half second before getting drilled - with the shoulder. Shit that is hockey. Keep your head up or pay the price. Nothing dirty about it. The fight was a draw - Smith was in so close that neither he nor Begin could get free to throw them. Nice takedown by Begin - if this was wrestling...

Posted by smooth361 on February 19, 2008 at 05:17 PM

Smith, did his Job... even fight... Begin with the take down... Jason Smith... why did the Leafs ship him out?

Posted by billy jack on February 19, 2008 at 03:14 PM

this was a draw,begin through bunch of taps,i can take those in my sleep,mind you smith never got off any money shots either,but if they could of had distance i think it could of been a decent scrap,how many time i see begin leave his fet to make a hit,he should get lifts for his skates.but the old guy made him answer.

Posted by habsfan1993 on February 19, 2008 at 12:10 PM

Begin hurts a guy with a borderline hit, Jason Smith immediately jumps Begin. Jason Smith practically tackled Begin and gave him no chance to prepare. Begin still got some good punches in, but so did Smith. I call this one a draw. I also call the game a reckoning for a dirty Flyers team that has a false sense of toughness.

Posted by bostonrs555 on February 20, 2008 at 01:04 AM

Begin is a bum, I wouldn't want this punk on my team!!!!! What's this guy got, 1 hit in the last 5 or 6 ga... YEARS!!!!! AND WOW HE SLAMS A GUY TO THE ICE, all that means in my book.... is that your scared to throw them !!!!!!!!!!! YOU WANT HIM.........YOU GOT HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by mckendo83 on February 20, 2008 at 03:29 PM

Note to the idiots posting their reviews here... the real talks on the inside no one cares what this stupid board says.

Posted by IMPEACH on February 20, 2008 at 02:50 PM

For a big guy, Smith really should be a better fighter. The Flyers have a history of having big, nice guys... I'd rather they went after a few more small, mean guys like Downie.

Posted by BooSanta on February 20, 2008 at 10:48 AM

Tough to call here. Begin scores the nasty hit on Tolpeko, who now has a concussion. He did indeed leave his feet, but it looked more like an effort to brace himself. If you slow-moed the replay on the hockey channels you'll see that Tolpekos head was up; It was just that nasty a hit. Jason smith scores the "step in for your teamate" prop and get's some shots in, but Begin is game and wins the takedown that Jay appears to have intiated. It about evens things out. Great hockey here as far as "following the codes" but not much of a fight in the end. The powers that be will probably not review the hit for 3 reasons: 1) Begin leaving his feet was not done with intent to injure despite his getting a charging penalty. 2) He was not wearing a flyer uniform. 3) The concussion victim was a flyer. I talked to a habs fan he told me that Jay smith got his nose broken by a high stick later in the game. No penalty called. See reasons above as to why. Unfortunately, the flyers forearmed their way into a corner earlier this year with the suspensions. It may make them interesting to watch and comment on but it may drop them from the playoffs this year.

nice hit..smith did the right thing

Posted by hockey doc on February 19, 2008 at 02:16 PM

Begin is just another gutless Hab. No team toughness there. Europuss team that everyone hates about the new NHL.

Posted by Rebel Banker on February 19, 2008 at 10:36 PM

i don't no what fight half of you dbags are watchin...begin had his gloves off and threw first before smith put him downto his knees so then begin gets up and tackles the guy... 75% of the people on this sight are haters...they see a flyer and don't even look at the video...

Posted by rootbeer22 on February 21, 2008 at 11:45 AM

it doesnt matter how falls to the ice first it matters who get the must punches in. and a body slam isnt part of a hockey fight, thats wrestling for the pussys. if anything this should of been a draw.

Posted by alekseyanov on February 19, 2008 at 07:07 PM

well looks like Steve is up to his old self again. Well if you can't do anything for your team Stats wise. Don't takeout a non-fighter. who is more fragile than wayne gretzky. That said. GOOD JOB JASON.

Posted by UWOStud on February 19, 2008 at 12:29 PM

Think Begin is pumped here?? HammersTolpeko then automatically drops em with Smith and gets the body slam in. Lookin good Begin!!

Posted by Ragtop1day on February 19, 2008 at 04:42 PM

good couple of seconds from Begin......

Posted by mikebflorida on February 19, 2008 at 02:21 PM

Jason Smith isn't very good. He should beat Begin but didn't and got pile driven to boot. Nice hit by Begin.

Posted by Pickle2728 on February 21, 2008 at 11:44 PM

1-2-3...easy pin for the TV champ Begin.

Posted by The Peach on February 19, 2008 at 02:01 PM

dude, begin is great. he is all heart. i would tell my GM to trade for him PRONTO. guy lays out a dumb ass with his head down, then manhandles jay smith when he comes in acting like a sheriff. please. huge props to begin, that's hockey baby.

Posted by dromano13 on February 19, 2008 at 07:27 PM

Smith is an idiot to jump in for a pounding!

Posted by sakukoivu6660 on February 19, 2008 at 06:49 PM

Go habs go!

Posted by shane0mack on February 20, 2008 at 12:13 AM

nice hit by begin nice job by captain smith to stand up for 'mate nicer flip by begin not nice job my capt smith in taking off the gloves, however the announcers for the montreal canadians are the only reason why i would ever consider wanting to learn French.

Posted by yatyas on February 19, 2008 at 01:06 PM

ala shaye poo poo, como lay french lay bese shitay! Fukkin French!

Posted by js2 on February 19, 2008 at 06:29 PM

Begin landed the only punches so a win for him.

Posted by Timmerq on February 20, 2008 at 11:31 PM

Begin is great. Draw? My ASS. Take downs (especially good ones) count. Great hit by Begin, too.

Posted by engage on February 20, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Begin, the little men win form a big.. mouahahaaa

Posted by cannondale on February 19, 2008 at 03:22 PM

this is why hockey is such a great sport for those who like action. one guy rocks his opponent (how could this hit be called a penalty-his stick was at waist level and BOTH SKATES ARE STILL ON THE ICE??????) and a team mate of the guy who got his bell rung jumps to his defense (and the honor of the team). gotta love it....

Posted by tattooedkingpin on February 20, 2008 at 04:28 PM

WOW!! Begin was an absolute ANIMAL!!! That was a monster hit, then he threw off his gloves and just went apeshit!! that was a fun clip.

Posted by GWL on February 20, 2008 at 08:02 PM

one of kevin lowes better trade smith is a waste

Posted by Munch on February 19, 2008 at 01:17 PM

what a easy win,flyers are useless..hahah

Posted by wuzang on February 19, 2008 at 02:50 PM

domination for begin, he hit solid the flyers player and tko smith

Posted by brashingles on February 19, 2008 at 01:30 PM

funny stuff comin from the habs fan over there. big surprise. yes the flyers have had some dirty plays, but they are a tough team. I see people on here talk about the visors. hartnell and downie have a little problem shedding them(i agree). Cote , Hatcher, Smith, Eager(when he was hear), Vandermeer can all throw them and they dont have a visor. Way more times than not Richards throws his visor off if you look at all his fights in the league. I can see why people think downie is a punk and he deserved the suspension, but at least he doesnt hit from behind like the Hollwegs of the world. I guess its easy for people to hate on here cuz it makes them feel tough and opinionated. Grow up and call it like you see it. No team is perfect.

Posted by preds321 on February 19, 2008 at 03:06 PM

I see nothing wrong with the hit by Begin....but here comes another guy with gloves already dropped, taking exception to a big open-ice hit. Hit was clean, fight was boring.....DRAW

steve begin is lucky smith slipped

Posted by scanz30 on February 20, 2008 at 06:08 PM

im so sick of the people that leave reviews on this site if a flyer player's only means of offense in a fight is 2 throw someone to the ice like begin did u guys would be all over him callin him a pussy and whatever else comes 2 mind have a fair frame of mind when u watch the fights not just i hate the flyers so im gunnah vote against their players

Posted by chad420 on July 02, 2009 at 03:28 PM

sick hit...slight edge begin...4 landin more......nice judo throw...but really doesnt count in hockey unless its a finish to an asswhuppin to guy that grabs on...a 3

Posted by marinermoose38 on February 20, 2008 at 02:41 PM

Keep your head up!!!!! Nice hit, so-so fight. I'll go with slight edge to Begin.

Posted by ROCK HAWK on February 19, 2008 at 04:23 PM

The hit was much better than the fight . Clean hit for sure. Begin with a little edge vs. Smith, mainly for the take-down. Save the Flyers suck comments please all..thats a given

Posted by pens4life2 on February 19, 2008 at 03:18 PM

Jason Smith might be the softest dude in the league. Clean hit, win for Begin. Flyers suck

Posted by blueshirts1623 on February 19, 2008 at 02:51 PM

flyers suck and can't even win a fight when they jump a guy not looking they suck
