Other Penalties: Parros received an instigator and misconduct; Eager a misconduct.
I don't think there should be votes on fisticuff majors. Its not the same thing as a fighting major. Its as if someone got 5 min. for spearing, and we get to vote on that like it was a fight. Of course Parros beat the crap out of Eager-EAGER NEVER DROPPED THE STICK OR MITS. The Ducks were shorthanded for 5-7 min. The Hawks didn't score on this power play as I recall, but I helped them get beat the Ducks. The Hawks are outside of the playoff race now, and they need every point that they can get. It was a very chippy game. The Ducks got away with a lot of cheap shot.The Hawks kept their cool and the Ducks did not. Eager would fight Parros anytime, anywhere, but he sucked Parros into a stupid penalty. Eager really helped the Hawks win. They gave Eager a misconduct ! FOR WHAT? They hand out a lot of misconducts and game misconduct to cut down on fighting. Let them work it out on the ice! Also, if they called this game- and any game- evenhandedly, there would be a lot less chippyness. Bill McCreary is the worst official ever. I don't know if Eager does this all the time. I don't know how much the concussion problem enters into this. In this case, I am ok with him taking one for the team. Having said that, the Hawks need a guy that can fight to stop the chippy play.
All of you Parros lovers check Dennis Savards comments regarding instructions he has given Ben Eager not to fight because he is way to valuable to the team to sit in the penalty box
Let me be the first to say that I cannot stand ANYONE turtling, especially the "tough guy". I watched this game though and I can tell you that Eager's shift was already overextended as he had hit Pronger multiple times. Parros came out onto the ice specifically looking for Eager because of all the hitting Eager was doing. Parros didn't even "ask" Eager to scrap he just flat out jumped him and started throwing. Now, had there been a face-off and both players were rested and ready and Eager turtle, then I would be REALLY ticked. Even if he lost the fight, don't ever turtle. I'll give Eager a pass on this one because I KNOW he was gassed from his shift. On a side note, Wizzer kicked O'Donnell's butt. Someone said Wisniewski was just holding. I don't think so... He was throwing 'em and O'Donnell was the one holding on and trying to wrestle to the ground.
You don't get a win for jumping a guy...what a wuss parros is...
This was not a fight. Johnny Holmes Jr. knows better to drop them if the baby Eager (yes Roberts gave him a knuckle sandwich before) turtles. CRAP FIGHT! Typical former Flyer Eager is a **ssy!
never thought id see that from parros. whenever someone else did that, you guys called them a biitch for hitting a defenseless player. boo parros, no respect.
Parros did a jump job,does pronger ever drop the gloves or is he just a back door bandit,ya i know he has a broken jaw but i mean his whole career.
I'm a Flyer hater so Eager being an exflyer is on my hit list. Having said that I dont see how anybody can fault Eager. He was attacked and didnt have a chance to do anything. Parros went crazy. I dont know what led up to this but this was bizarre.
Didn't the coward Bertuzzi fight in this game too?
Eager is a little biatch. He chicked out the night before on 2 occasions with the Wild's Chris Simon. If he wants to be known as a tough guy, then he needs to buck up. I wish more guys would do what the stasch did to him. what a wuss. you hawks fans should be ashamed of yourself.
This fight proves that even Ivy League schools in the US are a joke. Parros must be the stupidest player in sports.
Look at this Parros is such a dirty hockey player. Parros is the biggest pussy i have ever seen.
F*ck Parros, cheap play: the Ducks motto
Alright I disagree and I'm obviously a minority, but I think Parros was the bitch here. He didn't give Eager a chance to fight him, so how can you say he didn't want to fight? Parros was literally on top of him. You have to give the guy a chance to take off his gloves (or even drop his stick for that matter). Good team play by Eager to help his team win. Although I have no idea what the misconduct was for. And for the record, I hate both of them.
I guess Eager got 10 minutes for head butting Parros' fists. BTW...thank you, Ducks for giving a rookie his first shutout.
Again all the internet hardasses again....My how does one walk the streets with all you tough guys out there roaming the streets...This guys a p*s*y that guys a wimp..Please hero's where's your resume...Beating up the letters on the keyboard...Ohhh the vowels must be black and blue from your tenaciousness...99% of you BRAWLERS couldnt beat Uncle Ben,Ben Affleck,or Benji the dog let alone Eager...How is someone a wuss when George the Dancing Gorilla assaults him without Eager even receiving a chance...Why wouldnt Pronger engage him...Oh A broken jaw Im sure you thugs woulda kicked his ass broke jaw or not ehhh ? Save your tough guy shit for your wives and girlfriends macho men...This is to grade the real fighters .THE NHL ers not for you wannabees to flex your internet muscles....JOKERS...
Parros is an idiot, did I miss something or did he just jump Eager for no reason and put his team down a man for 5 mins.
This wasn't a fight. It was someone getting jumped. Is Parros from the Hood or what? When did the rink become a back alley?
As a Flyers fan I am well aware of Eager poor fighting abilities, however, he did not turtle. Parros totally jumped him. Eager never had a chance to do anything. But I agree that this shouldn't count as a fight. That is why I voted a draw and why I voted domination.
George, George, George....ya got played....
Burkies Goons at it again!!! Draw! I don't give wins for muggings!!
The only time in a while Parros has and will "win" a fight.
Wow! I don't know which guy involved has the least class. Pronger checks a guy in the back while wearing the face protection and clearly not a potential combatant. That's pretty cheap. Eager pops Pronger in the face in responce, even though Pronger has a broken jaw. That's pretty low, but Pronger was asking for it. Then, Parros jumps Eager from behind, pretty cheap there too. Finally, Eager turtles, also cheap even if it is smart and he was at the end of his shift. I've got to say that Eager was the least pathetic player involved. I rate it a draw because it wasn't really a fight.
Not much of a 'fight' when one guy never even gets his gloves off. "Porn-stache" Parros is a clown. He didn't want to chance getting embarrassed so he jumped Eager. Real class. I haven't been too impressed with Eager either, but if you are a real tough-guy, then at least let him drop the gear. Pronger is an idiot too, if you're man enough to throw the cheap hits, then be man enough to accept the consequences (even with a broken jaw) and/or stand up for yourself.
so much is made of how 'smart' Parros is cuz he went to Princeton. He looked pretty stupid here. After getting mugged, when did Eager have a chance to dance?
no-i'm not smoking crack (which would explain the votes for each fighter). eager was doing what he thought was needed (or what he was instructed to do???? hmmmmm) and parros was doing his job. the hit immediatley before parros's was intended, as was george's, to take the head off eager for his jabs at pronger. say what you want about pronger's questionble hit from behind but going after a guy with a broken jaw (very recently, too) deserves this exact response. too bad the refs stopped the beating before GP got in some really good shots.....
That a boy Moustache beat up a guy that doesn't want to fight because of a concussion. A real heavyweight would never attack a guy that didn't want to fight. Remember when Aaron Downie beat down the moustache. Parros is a useless bum.
All you knuckleheads that are ripping Eager are forgetting one thing. Ben Eager just got back from an extended stay on the DL due to concussion. Eager was smart not to fight. Why risk his long term health to fight a bonehead like Parros??? The Hawks got 7 minutes of power play time...time that the Ducks needed to try to score. The Hawks, and therefore Eager, won this "fight." Also, Eager did not intend to fight Pronger. He was showing his displeasure to Pronger over the hit from behind (against a teammate) that clueless McCreary didn't call.
Great job by Eager, he did the Hawks a good thing, he got parros out of the game for 15 minutes. HE WAS SMART.. So for all you stupid A$$'s that did not understand that.. go F*CK yourselfs. LMAO GOOD JOB BIG BEN....GO HAWKS!!!
ROFL to you that are giving this to Parros....IT WASN"T A FIGHT! It was eager letting Parros give the Blackhawks a major advantage....and that is called smart. Win to Eager for outsmarting the dumbass Parros.
great fight for eager--the victor--eager showed what a complete and utter GOON parros is. parros hadnt won a fight in the last month, is a terrible skater and hockey player, and if he doesnt fight he's in the minors. the stupid stacheman is a joke and is a "winner" only because the other guy doesnt fight back. enjoy your cup, anaheim, it is your one and only, ever. admire your goon squad of parros, travis(trash)moen, and todd(should have been banned from hockey for life)bertuzzi. nice collection of trash, anaheim--ducks s--k.
Eager Won! lol
Eager should have accepted the challenge. I mean he did have words with Pronger with facemask (he's so tough) hahaha. Pony up son
This wasn't a fight, it was a jumping. How do you score something like this???
eager drew the penalty and walks away without a scratch on his face. give credit to parros for stickin up for his team but eager still did his job, and his team got the win
I hate Eager but it wasn't a fight. how could you say Parros won...Eager was jumped! didn't even have his gloves off...morons
I guess Eager is afraid to fight since Gary Roberts kicked his ass. Eager is such a pussy, I'm glad the Flyers dumped his ass.
Parros just jumped him, it wasn`t a fight. What was Parros doing? It wasn`t even instigated.
Eager's a bitch, for sure. Not happy at all that the Hawks traded Vandermeer for him. That said, he appeared to simply be playing hockey here, and Parros just jumped him. Parros is another bitch, though. The way it's been going for him lately, this is the only way he can win a fight.
Does anyone from Anaheim that didn't partially retire this year have any class? Pronger doing what he does best....cheap shots.
he jumped him. didnot need to parros is a beast things that make u go ume
parros attacked not even a fight
If you go try and start shit with the Captain of the other team, particularly when he is wearing a full shield, you have to be ready to drop the gloves - ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE CONSIDERED THE TEAM'S ENFORCER. Ben Eager's eggs are still scrambled from the Gary Roberts scrap that got his sorry ass shipped out of Philly and if he is too afraid to drop the mitts then he has absolutely no reason to be on the team. As a Hawks fan I am glad they won but Eager hanging the code in an attempt to draw a power play is not acceptable when the only reason your sorry ass is out on the ice is to fight. Goddamned shameful conduct on the part of Ben Eager and I won't be unhappy if Shelley or Murray rearranges his face in the next game and gives him another nice long ride on the pine.
My God some of you are really stupid people. 7 minute power play or satisfy the rubes. Hmmmm. "Eager's a b*tch, f*cking p*ssy..." Are you really serious?! He just put his team at a serious advantage, five of which is major penalty time. Unlimited scoring. Not that the Hawks did anything about it, but point being, Eager dropping the gloves would've been about the dumbest thing he could do. Nice going Eager for some head's-up, smart hockey. He's not turtling because he's a pus, hes doing it for his team. Part of playing smart hockey is knowing when to drop the gloves and when not to drop them. Some of these people have no concept of that. Win goes to the Stache. Game to the Hawks.
Who the "F" voted for Eager? Homers! Please leave this site and never return. WIN = PARROS
eager was wise to bow out. parros was pissed and ready to bring the pain. trying to 'draw a penalty' doesn't make sense -- eager is too dumb for that. he just pussed out. saved himself a beating.
can you say TURTLE - what a puss eager is...throws a shot to the chin of a guy with a broken jaw...then turtles when someone who doesn't have a broken jaw goes after him....the only reason the hawks won was because they were on a pp half the game -- 2pp goals and a empty net at the end whooohoo. 1st game they 've beat the ducks in 5 yrs...hoist the cup hawks fans....enjoy the golf this post season... hey dipshits -- pronger got hit in the face several times up to this point -- eager wasn't just talking to pronger -- he threw a punch under his mask to his broken jaw... the only reason he's wearing a guard is because last time they played the cawcks - he took a stick to the jaw and had to have surgery...know what you're talking about before you comment, you ignorant jackasses..
I guess you have to give it to Parros since he is the only one to throw a punch. That being the case, does this even qualify as a fight? Eager got chippy with Pronger so George answers for his teammate. Ben should have fought back since he got a misconduct anyway.
Eager should have stayed a Flyer. They love gutless, cheap shotting pukes. Parros did the best he could besides kicking Eager in the vgina
Looks like George even gave Eager a sec to decide before he worked him. Another puss showing by Eager..............pitiful. Win to the stache.
Eager showed his true colors in this "fight." What a pussy ass bitch.
Way to go Eager..... Turtle up, you f*cking p*ssy.
Parros wasn't having any of Eagers shit. He let him know. and for the record even if Eager did drop em' Parros woulda rocked him.
What has happened to Ben Eager? He used to drop his gloves with no problem & didn't look that bad at all in MOST of his fights. "Bruins0506"- I like your "Losing His Balls" comment... Whoever finds them, I wonder how much they can get for them on ebay. I mean, his balls weren't very big to begin with, but at least they were working & knew their purpose.
wow blackhawk16 great comment dumbass. it's real easy to play better than a team when they spend half of the game a man down. the hawks don't even have koci anymore. they gave him to tampa bay he's playing in norfolk.
Now i see why parros went after eager. Good job for Parros. Cant blame parros for doing what he did. Yes, he did jump him but eager should know that when parros first hit him, that he wanted to go. Eager could of dumped the mitts and stick if he really wanted to. But also a good job for giving his team the Penalty time. I just think for the Code of enforcers, i feel if you challenge someone who cant fight because hes hurt(pronger), then you give the teams enforcer a chance to stick up for him, and show some class and drop them and give it a go. It kinda reminds me of what avery did to jarko ruutu like a month ago. Dont skate up like your going to do something and then not drop them. I think its a Puss move. Only a few heavys have class, parros is one of them. He would of squared off with eager and given eager a chance to drop them, but he knew eager wasnt going to. So he had to do his job and send a message.
Wow, Eager sure starts a lot of fights for a sissy!!
I don't get it.
Some of you are just morons. Eager had time to drop the gloves but he didnt. People compain that he just came back form injury, well Pronger came back from injury but Eager didnt have a problem hitting him and putting the stick high to his face. Thats the way to enforce a team, way to go Parros
Hit 'em again George! He's Eager for an a**whoopin'!
I love how if you listen closely you can hear Parros call Eager a mother fucker at about the 24 second mark. I saw Eager go after Pronger (who currently has a broken jaw) in the game, it was time to answer for that. If Eager were a skill player then sure you can turtle against Parros, but you're not, you're an agitator. Its pretty obvious the flyers dumped him after cowering away from a fight with BGL and being beat by Roberts when they played the penguins earlier this season (http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/38999), either that or he asked for a trade before the next flyers penguins game. Eager is complete crap, he reminds me of avery who is a burden to all the guys on his team because they have to answer for the shit he pulls.
I liked the audio that was picked up during this one...just wish I could make out what Parros was saying. Someone needs to wipe that stupid f*^king look off of Eagers face.
I think Eager planned to suck Parros into a penalty. If you watch the vid, Eager's smiling after the linesmen pull Parros off. That kid knew what he was doing. He knew. That's why the Ducks ended up with a seven minute penalty with Parros being ejected with a "game misconduct". While the Hawks didn't score on the seven-minute power play (which made us Hawks fans particularly upset for a time) I think it was because of this fight, the momentum in the game shifted in favor of the Hawks. We kept our cool...they didn't. However, even as a Hawks fan, I'll have to give this one to Parros simply because even if Eager planned to take a beating, he STILL took a whomping from Parros! Hate to say it, but I gotta give this fight to the Ducks. *bleh*
what a little turtling baby Eager is, once he came to Chicago both of his balls were nowhere to be seen.
Wow Eager turtling??? LOL what a surprize! What a waste of skin Eager is, no wonder the Flyers dumped him. I see eagers family signed on to vote for little Benny in the voters booth here.
parros went after eager because eager and other hawks were running at pronger (just back from a jaw contusion) all game. eager should have dropped his gloves and answered the bell since he is supposed to be a tough guy. the fact that he didn't and covered up instead speaks volumes. it reminds me of that gutless puke dale purinton. i'm not a fan of parros as a fighter, but in this case, i understand where he's coming from. so for those wondering about eager's misconduct - it was given to him because he's playing in a MEN'S league and well....it would appear he isn't.
Eager is a woman!
How does Eager have any votes? Did his Mom vote?
for the buttwipes bitching at Parros going after Eager... watch the last several minutes of the period and it'll make more sense. Parros did what any respectable teammate would do.. Parros is the furthest thing from a cheap shot king out of almost any enforcer I've ever seen.. He may be a bit overrated as a fighter, but he has respect for others, I from what I've heard and seen, seems to have respect from many other players.
typical crap from eager just like before the flyers flushed him. skate around like a tough guy, taking runs, but dont drop the gloves with anyone til you first read the name their sweater. bushleague.
eager turtle away from george cause he's only a shit disturber that all.
Another wippy turtle job by a soft Blackhawk team. Chicago used to be a tough team, but no longer.
Eager's useless to the point that he doesn't belong in the league anymore.
who the hell would vote against parros!? it couldnt have been a draw our a win for eager considering he is a pussy and wouldnt even drop the gloves, let alone his stick
Parros owned Eager he punished him! Go Ducks!
any player who stands outside of the opposing teams dressing room/ press room and swears and curses a coach out desrves to get jacked up! this is exactly what eager did the game against the pens where gary roberts kicked his ass. he yelled while coach michel therrien(pens) was giving his post game press conference, calling him names and saying how he had no class...... aint that the pot calling the kettle black! the kid is a joke, all he does is act tough, no class eager, enjoy the ass beating you recieve, you'll get alot of them! thanks parros, nice job
parros had eager lined up, probably intentional, and stuck it to eager pretty good. eager did a good job not getting a major. eager has a whipping coming to him next season,from BGL. take it to the bank.
Parros brings the hammer down on former FLYER Eager. Eager has been a cheap shot artist in the tradition of his former team. Parros had enough and pulled out a can of "whop-ass". Eager will be golfing with his Flyer buddies come playoff time ... Chicago v. Flyer golf tourny.
punk should have thrown the gloves off!
On a close up, I think I found one of my missing skirts, Ben stole it!
George Parros is my hero. I love seeing that from an enforcer, actual enforcing. Stache gets the buttman package but well worth it in my eyes. The sound bytes were great. Stache is yelling Mother Focker at Eager as he's trying to beat on him. Huge slops to the linesmen who got between George and Eager. Eager deserves a beating. he's supposed to be a tough guy in this league and turtles like Claude Lemieux? For shame.
GEORGE!!!!! KNOCK IT OFF!!!!! LOL. Classic. Ben Eager sure played him for a fool on that one. However... Im sure he prevented himself from getting a serious Ass Kicking care of GP.
Eager what a PUSS!!!!! Clallenges Pronger who has a broken jaw and George backs up his bud and all Benny does is EURO. All during the period we kept hearing how tough he is and when given a chance he PUSSES OUT EURO STYLE!!!! Parros doesn't go Domi often so it was obvious that Eager beaver had an ASS WHOOPEN coming and he couldn't man up. They give George 17 minutes including 7 powerplay for the Chickenhawks. IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!1
Was that Claude Lemieux under the turtle shell?
First of all...The Hawks went after Pronger only after he drilled Adams from behind....The Hawks don't have a guy like Parros that has only one purpose on the ice since they sent Koci down. This Hawks team dominated the Ducks all night long....That was a great move by Eager...gave the Hawks a 7 minute power play and frustrated the Ducks to the point that they didn't focus on winning the game...At this point the Hawks need the 2 pts more than anything else...I'll take the team toughness any day over one waste of space enforcer.
Wow Parros is a nutcase. This wasnt a fight so im calling it a draw. Pronger is the dirtiest player in the league... dont hit someone from behind and then hide behind your broken draw... its no wonder hes second in the league in suspensions
I called it a draw because it wasn't a fight. George just jumped him which is fine with me. Eager wouldn't fight Simon the other night either. He'll only drop when he knows he clearly has the upper hand.
what on Earth was Parros doing? He just jumped him and started throwing. While most of you might not like Eager because he is a bit of a weiner, he really had no opportunity to do anything here. Parros got the penalty mins, 'Hawks got the W. God I hate the Ducks
A lot of people bag on Eager about not following the code. Part of the code is never jump a guy either. If Parros doesn't like Eager saying something to Pronger after he cross-checked Adams into the boards, then he challanges him straight up. If Eager declines, Parros gives Toews or Kane a little whack. But you don't jump a guy, especially one with a history of concussions. No class.
Parros took exception to Eagers check on Pronger, who is wearing the full shield. If that was Eagers plan to get under the Ducks skin by doing that..im all for it. As for not dropping the gloves mikemcmo..Parros really gave him no shot to- takes a run at him and then jumps him. Honestly im not too sure he would have been too "Eager" to take him on anyways. But regardless it was still a gutless, idiotic move by Parros not to give him a chance to. That was 7 mins of p.p. that the hawks needed..even though they didnt score , that killed some time when they had a lead. And, a misconduct on Eager???? for what ?!! Sadly, the Hawks have no enforcer really. And every point counts right now . So...thank you porn star for helping out. No fight =Draw NOTE TO GEORGE S CLAM: Sir, if you are truely a Hawks fan (and i dont believe you are, we arent that dumb) then you should know Eager did what was needed in this situation. Im fairly sure the 7:00 power play is a huge reason the Hawks won this game..i watched it. And if Parros actually gave him a shot to fight him i might feel a little different - but he got jumped. Turtle in a fair fight IS shamefull...but this wasnt the case. And looking at the WHOLE scenario of it..Eager did his job much better then Parros. So, if you want to give you're opinion here, thats great...but please dont try to pass yourself off as a Hawks fan...we know better
There are some idiots on here. First, Eager does not hit Pronger in the face here. Pronger runs Adams from behind, so Eager goes over to tell him to knock it off and gives him a shove. Then Parros comes on the ice and runs Eager and starts wailing on him. That isn't a fair fight, not when Eager is at the end of his shift and Parros just came out, not when there is no challange being made, just Parros punching. This seems the only way the guy can fight and not get his ass kicked. And please, let the fight with Roberts go, people. It was months ago, with two teams who aren't even in this conference. If Eager had won that fight, some of you would be bitching about that, so shut up and get a life.
WOW Parros didn't lose his balance I call a draw because Parros didn't even give Eager a chance to even get his gloves off
I was at the game and saw why Eager got the misconduct. Eager got the misconduct for not obeying the ref. Parros had headed to the lockerroom and a ref had Eager by the Hawks bench when Wiz and O'Donnell started going at it. Eager left the bench area and skated back towards the fight. The ref was yelling at him and tried to pull on his jersey to tell him to go back. He ignored the ref and kept going. He stayed behind everybody, never made contact with anybody and just watched, but refused to go back until the fight was done.
Parros did what he had to. Eager gave Pronger a slight chop to the chin for the hit he had just made. The game was already chippy before that and BGP just exploded from the bench to attack him. That was passionate hockey the way it should be played. I'm tired of these premeditated fights off the faceoffs and all this code bullshit. Look, when Tiger Williams would get you to the ice he still was trying to beat the crap out of ya. Btw, Bertuzzi did have a fight before the Eager thing after a scrum near the net. I forget who it was but by the time the camera got there Todd was the only one throwing. Bertuzzi did leave the ice because of a cut to his face.
eagar is the biggest puss in hockey
Eager,what a p*ssy and hes a so called enforcer.
Eager is a little bitch
Hahaha the spelling of p-u-s-s-y is now E-a-g-e-r. Like what are you doing out there Eager? Seriously...you don't have enough talent to play...you might as well fight. Glad to see at least one player out there is playing with some passion in Parros.
some morons actually voted for Eager, i bet they're flyers fans.
