Lots of helmut shots in the beginning by Laperriere. Vandy was toying with him after that. Nice uppercut to the jaw by Vandy gives him the edge. Winner. Vandermeer
The last left by Vandy evened the fight.
i gotta call it a draw, but i could be wrong. all punches landing were laperrieres until one good one by vandermeeer at the end. agree vandemeer should have fought more when on flyers to make up for his defensive shortcomings. they could have used it.
Ok fight.......Ian in the first half, andy with the good shot in the 2nd. Draw.
Lappy started off great landing some unanswered rights. Vandy decided to go underneath & seemed to land a nice uppercut. It was a nice punch but I dunno about calling this a TKO. Yeah, the punch landed but Lappy was fine. This was not the same as what Godard did to Erskine. EDGE VANDY ANYWAY!
What happened ? Lapemere was getting off in the beginning, and then Vandermeer switched hands and Lapemere quit...did he get hit or just run out of gas ????
Lots of punches thrown, but even so the fight never really got going. It also was stopped too soon. Gonna say draw.
Just cause all you piece of shit, bitter canadian hockey fans don't have him, don't hate on my boy Lappy. He is a scrapper, and if he played for your team you'd love him! So fuck you!
Sceus me but its not vandermeer the winner of this fight. Thant was a Draw so if you right is vandermeer you don't no what is a hockey fight. IT WAS NOT A TKO.
Draw! van took way to many hits for me to give it to him for the buckleing of laper
i don'tthink it was a big uppercut or a knee buckler.. I say draw
Ian landed more punches and it is not conclusive he was knocked sill by a left.
Close fight. Bit of a crap one actually. Although Vandermeer got in the early punches it seemed to me that Laperriere controlled the fight.
Vandy wins even though he let Lapuke land too many in the beginning. In the end Vandy swatted him like the bug Lapuke is.
nice uppercut by vandemeer. he played lazy then popped one in there. took the fight out of lappy in an instant.
Laperriere was way more active in the beginning as Vandermeer just waited for an opportunity to turn the table. Finally, after receiving several punches, Vandermeer got kind of free and caught Laperriere with a blow that, seems, made Lappy drop to the knees. If not a slip than a TKO for Vandermeer.
Poor Lappy !
Habs44 get a clue. May not have been a TKO but that last shot stung Lappy. When the linesman came in he said nice shot and Vandy asked him if he was OK. Lappy said yes and skated away checking his face for damage.
ian chicken out at the end
Vandermeer gets this one late but im a little put off with him fixing his lid . is he psychic or just realized that getting hit in the helmet is better than the face ? he obviously knew his left uppercut was going to stun Lappy . i wonder if he can tell if im going to win the lottery next week ?
Stopped too soon? I dont think so! Vandermeer realized he hurt Laperriere and he stopped throwing. Like a true professional that he is, Van didnt continue trying to hurt. Lap also acknowledged that at the end. Get a clue people, thats a TKO for Jimmy V
Habs44 you are a complete MORON! Did you watch this fight? He dropped him to his knees!!
Wish I could have seen that last uppercut from a different angle. Looked to be a good one.
Laperriere looked shaken up towards the end
Upper cut by Vandermeer gets the win
that was a nice uppercut it buckled lappy real quick,give vandy credit he could of kept punching and hurt yappy even more.tko for vandy
Lappy did very well against tougher guy. Lappy early but better late from Vandy. Vandermeer with a NARROW Win in good fight.
Where was this when Jimmy was in Philly ? All the guy did was make stupid to's in his own end game after game. He gets the win with the big shot at the end that hurt Lappy (see Lappy thank him) but WTH was that agression in Philly ?
Laperriere hasn't been doin much lately good to see him fight.
This was a mismatch all the way. Laperriere is a tough guy, but Vandermeer can swing it will guys that are much bigger than he is. Vandermeer just waited until he got into a position to throw and buckled Laperriere. TKO.
tko for Vandermeer. Laperriere was active early, but Vandy buckled him with the left uppercut. Laperriere did not slip, it was a legit knockdown.
when did vandy get his balls back? i wish he found them before he left philly...usual vandy fight, take 2-3 shots to land 1 good one...kinda like the the fight with flynn, you don't really see a big punch but the guy goes down and your like what happened... class move not to pound the guy while he was done
Crappy loses another one.
vandersmeer hammers Eon. Nice uppercut James !!!
Vandy rolls up and smokes Lappy. I'd rather see Jim Vandermeer on the blueline for the Flyers than -15 (in 11 games!) Jaroslav Modry.
Nice tight left uppercut. Knee buckler.
Did that shot buckle Lappy? It kinda looked like it did, but it didn't look like a damaging punch at all.
even though laperrier started off strong vandermeer finished it and won a close fight
Not a bad fight. Was going to vote Laperriere until the end when Vandermeer landed that last punch. Didn't look like a great shot to me. Weird. Guess it was a lot harder than it looked. Win Vandermeer.
i cant believe im saying this... win vandy
Vandy is a slow starter but one of the best technical fighters ever; pound for pound. He looks to get his left hand lose and then hit you with the jack hammer. He can change hands with the best of them. This guys is a middleweight and has taken on some of the best heavy weights. Ask Brad Brown and Parros about Vandy`s left hand. Once he smoked Lapeerriere he stopped throwing them. Ian has a huge hurt but is overmatched...
Ner the end Vandy just lets Laperriere flail away and waits for his opening,then.....POP! He got his butt handed to him by Simon last night though.
Pretty good scrap Vandermeer gets the win at the end.
i really hope we keep Jim for next year go flames go
