...gabby kicked ass...

Posted by rangersfan10 on February 14, 2010 at 08:50 AM

Gaborik did a good job saying that he only fought a couple times

Posted by Krauseheim on April 07, 2008 at 10:49 AM

Should have been just roughing minors. Nice to see Gaborik hang tough though, something we never knew about until now. Good prelude to playoffs.

Posted by nstars27 on April 07, 2008 at 12:23 PM

mikefl its great reading a genius like your self on this site. I think the nhl shouldn't protect its star players at all. Let then fend for themselves. I guess if you live in fl you have no star players to protect. I'm sure us MN HOMERS will enjoy the playoffs and watch THE WILD play. You on the other hand will sit back and piss and moan on what should have been. Anyway it was a draw and I lost alot of respect for lappy. He will pay for somewhere in the playoff, which I'm sure mikebfl will be watching and cheering on the wild since no fl team made it

Posted by wildfan4eva on April 07, 2008 at 12:05 PM

Ian is going to pay for that !! I cant wait to see him bitch out when boogy or simon comes after him in the playoffs....ooooohhh it will be a great series !! No win for gabby even though he is my favorite player !! Sorry Gabbs...u didnt do anything to win !! As for lapperiere or however you spell it..by going after the all star on the team....u lost all respect....and proved that you are classless. Pretty soon we will see how big of a puszzy you are as well...actually the first game is Wednesday...c u then Ian !! HEY MIKEBFLORIDA...YOU GOTTA REMEMBER SOMETHING BUD....MINNESOTA HAD HOCKEY BEFORE YOU WERE EVEN SQUIRTING OUT OF YOUR DADDY'S AZZ HOLE...I SUPPOSE I WOULD BE PISSED IF I WERE THE ONLY HOCKEY FAN IN FLORIDA...THAT MUST SUCK...YOU CAN HATE ON MINNY ALL YOU WANT JUST SIMPLY BECAUSE YOUR FROM FLORIDA AND CLAIM THAT PEOPLE FROM THE SUNSHINE STATE KNOW'S SOMETHING ABOUT HOCKEY...WE MINNY'S UNDERSTAND CONSIDERING FLORIDA IS FAR FROM A HOCKEY STATE...MAYBE BASKETBALL IS MORE UP UR ALLY...AND I MEAN THE ONE BETWEEN UR LEGS BRO !!! LATER FRIEND

Posted by NE MPLS on April 08, 2008 at 08:32 PM

Fight was a crappy DRAW... Laperrier is a punk... He goes after Gaborik (our best player) but he "wants nothing to do" with Boogard b/c he is too big! I hate these agitator types who go after star players but wont drop gloves and stick up for their actions. I think IL led the league in FM last year, he should know better. THIS IS THE EXACT REASON THE INSTIGATOR RULE SHOULD GO AWAY!!!

Posted by averybear on April 07, 2008 at 08:53 PM

lol Laperriere!! What a hero going after Gaborik!! Cheers to Marian for standing up to a classless punk...

Wow, LaPerriere got real brave as soon as Minny's enforcers started to stay on the bench as the game got to the end of regulation and overtime.

Posted by Skilly on April 07, 2008 at 12:19 PM

Before the game I figured people might go after star players due to the fact that they looked like they were going to play eachother. Didn't expect anyone to get a shot a Gabby but there will be redemtion in terms of boggy simon fedurick shot varos or burns could man handle that pus. Draw no winner

Posted by WILDFAN_24 on April 08, 2008 at 02:25 PM

what a cheap bastard. man I hope boogarrd works lamperier over good! real tought guy to fight gaborik. No class! there wasnt even a reason for the scuffl except to be an ass clown! should of been disaplined by the league! You dont fight skill players who dont fight. Man lamppy you better grow eyes in the back of your head. all you colorado douche bag fans you team stands no chance. The wild own you guys!

Posted by Behn Wilson on April 07, 2008 at 06:32 PM

As Lappy briefly slpips into a Crombeen jersey and upgrades his dental plan for the first round...for the first time ever, someone named Marion appears on HF.

Posted by lammy25 on April 07, 2008 at 07:09 PM

Playoffs will be fun to watch. Lappy keep your head up otherwise it will come off, actually it will come off either way!

what?! lol.

Posted by NedBraden24 on April 09, 2008 at 12:33 AM

Good to see Gaborik get feisty, but he would have got bundled if Ian dropped the mitts. Props for not pounding on him.

Posted by SkateboardWild on April 07, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Wow! Couldnt believe it when I saw it! Laperriere are u serious! You will bleed for this! I just can't wait to see who! I hope Simon pulls his crazy fast punches on you! Colorado overall cool team but I dont think youll be beating the Wild!!! - tkidu, thanks for the note. Thats right Gaboriks had some Slovokian fighting expierience! Hells yes!

Posted by shrk33 on April 07, 2008 at 02:55 AM

who would have thought this match up would occur? Not much of a "fight"

Posted by trpaulson on April 07, 2008 at 04:29 PM

Draw. How many fights has Gaborik had, none? And LaPuke is supposed to be an enforcer?

Posted by Sziklas on April 07, 2008 at 10:22 PM

The farcking shame about this "fight" is that it even happened and the worst thing about it for lappy is that he took a draw from a highly skilled player in his first fight. Can you say poussios -French Canadian for puzzy. Note for MikebFlorida-you have single handedly announced yourself as the biggest tool and wannabe tough guy posting here-wow you watch hockey fights on video. Ever been in a real hockey fight-the way you post it is obvious what the answer is-jerk-off.

Gaborik would have got killed if he fought Scott Parker.

Posted by MNBonecrusher on April 07, 2008 at 11:20 PM

Wow, what a punk Laperriere is! I don't care who you are, you have to see how cowardly this guy is. You know, if Simon went after Crosby, or Boogaarde went after Malkin I would be saying the same thing about them. Gaborik stood his ground though. Made me even prouder to have the guy on my team, and for the Colorado fans, I feel sorry for you. What an embarrassment this p ussy Laperriere must be to you! ALRIGHT GABORIK!!! YOU MADE IT TO HOCKEYFIGHTS.COM!!!! I wonder which one of our guys is going to slap the sh&t out of Laperriere? There is a NUMBER of them that would have NO problem doing it! Hey, Mike B from florida. Don't hate on Minnesota just because your sorry ass team will be watching the playoffs from their couch. Learn a little bit about hockey before you run your cockholster, ok princess? This was a classless act, plain and simple, but I wouldn't expect anything less from you than the stupidity you CONSTANTLY spew on this site!

Posted by Blackhawk23 on April 07, 2008 at 05:52 PM

lol Lappy will have to get a hold of him in the playoffs. Gaborik is lucky the linesmen got in there

Posted by Ragtop1day on April 07, 2008 at 05:12 PM

not much to watch..

Posted by peternorman on April 07, 2008 at 02:05 PM

Laperriere better keep his head on a swivel. He went after Gaborik twice in this game, both times no Fridge or even Simon on the ice. Boogey is already in the starting lineup for game one. If anyone complains about why fighting is still in hockey, it is because of punks like Laperriere.

Posted by Rustynail on April 07, 2008 at 11:53 AM

CRACKS ME up that some MORON from Largo, Florida (mikebflorida) is ripping MN fans (State of Hockey, by the way) for not knowing hockey!! Obviously never been to MN because if he had, he'd know that MN has one of the best, if not the best hockey fan base in the NHL, College and high school for that matter. We aren't a bunch of fair weather fans who only attend games when our team at the top, or to give us something to do when we can't be at the beach because it's too cold. How many other states sell out a building as big as the Xcel center to watch a high school hockey tournament? I'd have to say none. How many NHL players have come out of MN? Whether it's our high schools, colleges, shattuck, etc we turn them out a lot more often than most other states. We are true hockey fans, and when it comes to knowing about the game, I'd much prefer to hear it from a Wild fan, versus some putz named Mike, in Largo, Florida. BTW - I didn't vote a win for Gabby either

Posted by penman1188 on April 07, 2008 at 09:19 PM

Gabby is severly out sized and out matchedm yet he almost wins this fight. Laperriere is a punk and will pay for it in this series. Gabby impressed me, and it is good to see guys like gabby and bouchard defend themselves..i dont think that colorado is a cheap hockey team but laperriere broke a gentlemens rule, and gabby did a good job to defend himself

Posted by Muscles on April 07, 2008 at 04:54 PM

Laperriere better watch out, next time Gionta or Kariya might kick his ass.

Posted by seipmoney on April 07, 2008 at 04:07 PM

Laperriere is a fag seriously try that when simon or boogaard is on the ice you pussy. Well see if hes still a man on the ice with one of them.

Posted by OriginalSix on April 15, 2008 at 11:53 AM

WOW Gabby! Lappy gets some nice gloved punches in. Gabby with 2-3 bare nucklers. DRAW!

Posted by dfergin on April 08, 2008 at 03:34 PM

Laperriere loves derriere...plain and simple. This guy is a classless punk. Period. Hang 'em up, PLEASE. The NHL does not need turds like you.

Posted by billy jack on April 07, 2008 at 11:29 PM

whys every one crying because a guy makeing 7 million a year has to stand up for himself every 10 years,hes bigger then lappy so whats the problem,you people sound like marion has a god given right to have others fight for him,to bad even stars have to take off the dress now and then,or go play rec leauge.im sick of a star able to hit some one from behind or do a face wash and then cry for his backup who's makeing the leauge minninum to fight his battle.Ive seen marion hand out a cheap shot or too hes not an angel.im not a colorado fan,but lappy paid his dues putting his face in front of alot of punches for some wimped out star.

Posted by angrybrain on April 07, 2008 at 04:44 PM

Lapperriere ... what a P&$$Y!! Goes after a skill player at the end of the game. The guys got no class. And if coach donut duster sent him out there for that, the guy is a bigger idiot than Crawford. Look out Forsdiver and Sakic... you are now fair game....

Posted by wrathburn on April 08, 2008 at 03:24 AM

Gaborik bit off way more than he could chew... Maybe he thought Boogard was right behind him, lol...

Posted by tomales on April 07, 2008 at 11:27 AM

How in the Hell can anyone call that a win for Gaborik? An unbalanced coupling for sure, but Gaborik did nothing that I saw. And what's with all of the childish personal attacks here? Yeah the bias is absurd but grow up!

Posted by bruiser11 on February 15, 2009 at 12:09 AM

Gaborik is 1 wuss of a hockey player. Granted he's got sweet finesse skills, but he could never even hope 2 stand up 4 himself without being roughed up. He's a LAY DOWN delicate star. Laperriere punked the puss gaborik here

Posted by Knuckle Sammich on April 09, 2008 at 12:29 AM

hardly qualifies as a fight. but its a pretty good sign that lappy is already in gaborik's head. can't score goals from the box. btw to all the wild homers in here...you did see the video, right? you sure? mkay. hilarious that some are calling for buggard to go after lappy for this. y'all know anything about hockey or do you just come here to vote for your guys? lol.

Posted by tyrone on April 07, 2008 at 10:56 AM

mikebflorida is a punk. Why would Lappy even entertain this match, I'm from Calgary and know better. Gabby wasn't going to get intimitated here. I sense Burns or Voros will kick the crap out of Lappy. Simon, Fridge and Boogie won't even waste their time. Hell, i'd like to see these two go again. I'd put my money on Gabby. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Posted by mikebflorida on April 07, 2008 at 10:43 AM

I knew it would be something like this once I saw Gaborik's name here. The refs and linesmen race to protect Gaborik just like they would any "star" player which shows an obvious favoritism. Blech. Anyway, props to Gaborik for tossing some punches and not backing down. I imagine he would have gotten pretty dinged up in a prolonged fight with Lappy. I'm sure the Wild fans are going apeshyt because of this which I think is great since they are the worst homers ever. By the way, changed from a draw to a win for Lappy as I said, the homer idiot Wild fans actually vote for Gaborik to win this "fight". What a focking joke you people are. MN Bonecrusher, Wildfan4eva, you're a joke, you're not even real hockey fans, just punks who only see one team or one player and whack it to posters of Boogaard in your mom's basement. Pathetic.

Posted by SirYohans on April 07, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Lappy threw some gloved punches at a visor, HARMLESS! If the Wild are gonna focus on getting revenge on Lappy this series, they are gonna end up hurting the team by taking penalties. U ever stop to think that this is what Lappy does as an Aggitator (getting the best player off his game before a playoff series.) If the goons on the Wild are gonna start going after Lappy or decide to play dirty with the Avs' Stars, I can tell u right now the Wild are getting an early playoff exit. BTW-Gaborik doesn't win this fight, it wasn't even a fight.

Posted by no123one on April 07, 2008 at 10:24 PM

Gaborik started it, Laparriere finished it :) Gaborik is just lucky the linesmen stepped in, as he was taking a beating.

Posted by Humper on April 07, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Okay, so Gaborik never fights and showed some guts going back at a bad guy. How does that equate into a win? It doesn't!! Those voting Gaborik or draw - run down to your optometrist right now. Laperriere all the way. You see, you can tell these things because he threw all the punches, and they mostly connected.

Posted by slash11237 on April 11, 2008 at 09:35 PM

at least colorado have a great fighter on there team

Posted by dmckearn on April 08, 2008 at 08:09 PM

What fight? No gloves were dropped. Chicken sh*t move by Peppy le peu.

Posted by bloody_knuckles on April 09, 2008 at 04:44 PM

I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed with Gaborik here. I mean, he gives Laperriere a shove, then backs it up once he comes back at him! Not to mention, it looked like he got a good little shot under the ref's arm when they got between the two. I gotta give Gaborik the edge, he showed some toughness....FINALLY.

Posted by gmathiak123 on April 07, 2008 at 07:01 PM

Gaborik knocks Ian off balance good enough for the win in my books. When a Light weight can knock a middleweight off stride like that it's a shame.

Posted by johnnygoodtimes on April 07, 2008 at 05:00 PM

Give it to Gaborik for standing up for himself. How many skill guys (no matter how stupid) would drop the gloves and not get pushed around. I do believe that next time we see Laperriere it will be with someone a little bigger (Simon, Boogaard, Fedoruk and maybe Burns???) Laperriere showed zero class the whole game by giving Gaborik cheap shots- Good for Gabby here.

Posted by Gunslinger on April 07, 2008 at 10:54 AM

Lappy lost alot of respect from me for this(like he cares!). He could have had Boogaard, Simon or Fedoruk but no, he takes Gaborik. Real weak Ian!

Posted by Franchise on April 09, 2008 at 10:26 PM

Gaborik wins his first ever fight, only because he is the only guy who actually dropped the gloves and threw a punch. Funny enough, the one or two he threw connected.

Posted by PIMking on April 07, 2008 at 06:06 PM

i dont think i have ever seen lappiere really win a fight. he is awful at fighting especially if he cant beat gaborik

Posted by TheAsianator on November 25, 2008 at 05:12 PM

Posted by boogaardfan_24 on April 07, 2008 at 02:43 PM

laperriere is a pussy. the only reason he pulled that shit was because we didnt haveanyone to protect him but he will get his when the playoffs start

Posted by Dampland on April 07, 2008 at 09:00 PM

What a cheap bush league move by Laperriere to go after Gaborik a SKILLED player. Better have your head on a swivel in the playoffs Ian!

Posted by MNposterChild on April 07, 2008 at 09:55 PM

The sweet thing about this fight is that it was Gaborik. I was listening to the game on the radio and just couldn't resist looking up the video. Laparierre's hits were mostly gloved and at full reach = not as powerful, Gabby came up with some good powered punches. I'm proud of him, he's a sweet player to have. Now Wild need Leopold

Posted by Jointman on April 07, 2008 at 04:38 AM

Glad to see Gabby doing this but there should be immediate answer by tough min guy.

Posted by WildFan31 on April 10, 2008 at 08:43 PM

gabby gettin pyhsical.

Posted by caper70 on April 09, 2008 at 12:04 PM

I give it to Gabby just because Lappy is a so called "Tough Guy" and was hit with a few good shots and was shown up by a finesse player like Gaborik!!

Posted by tkidu on April 07, 2008 at 02:30 PM

Gaborik had fought in slovakia before, kicked some random guys ass

Posted by KORPI24 on April 07, 2008 at 07:48 PM

Lappy finally found somebody he can hang with, CLASSIC LOSER ON A LOSER TEAM and LOSER FAN BASE, obviously talking about LOSER LAPPY AND COLORADO

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on April 09, 2008 at 07:40 AM

Laperriere is a little girl for picking on the Wild's star player. He's gonna pay for it later in the playoff series. If he really wanted to fight someone worthy, simon and fedoruk were in the lineup

Posted by FightNight7 on December 22, 2008 at 10:26 PM

nice one laperiere u douche

Posted by sporr on April 07, 2008 at 08:21 PM

All you so called hockey fans in MN don't know shit if you think there is a player in the league who is going to take that from Gaborik. Of course Boogi, Simon or Fedoruk weren't on the ice, it was OT morons. The reason Lappy was giving Gabby a hard time was the hard time you gave Forsberg a few games ago. I can't wait for the playoffs to see you retards thinking Boogie or Simon or Fedoruk are going to waste Lappy. I hope those 'stars' are on the ice a lot. It will be over in four then. Get real, Lappy is not going to take that kind of shit from anyone including anyone of your goons. I hope they get plenty of icetime, we'll see who wins then. I actually like all three of those guys and think they are great guys too have but get serious. Nobody is going to back away from Gaborik when he pulls that shit. We have a few tough guys of our own and you can bet they will hitting Gaborik!

this is great. hopefully it makes the upcoming playoff series a little spicier. i was kind of hoping to see minnesota-calgary because it would be a more intense series, but this little bout makes colorado an interesting matchup. see you on the ice Ian!

Posted by Wild1 on April 09, 2008 at 07:33 PM

WOW!!!!!! I thought the Aves had more class then that.

Posted by neiljc on April 08, 2008 at 09:47 AM

Did Lappy even need to respond? It served no purpose, but props to Gaborik for showing some guts and not taking any crap. Mikebfromflorida is a tool. He's from Florida for God's sake. This is nothing new to people who frequent this site. I love you MN people! By the way, another Marian has fought before, Marian Hossa, but I think that's about it.

Posted by azjim on April 07, 2008 at 04:48 AM

It would be interesting to see what Gaborik can do with someone like Laperriere. They may get a chance during the playoffs.

Posted by Crocosaur on April 09, 2008 at 11:31 PM

Props to Gabby for standing up to Laperriere(should be LaDERRIERE seeing as he's made an ASS of himself), though it wasn't much of a fight. He wanted the captaincy, and now he's earned it. I wouldn't expect the captain of my team to back down from ANYONE...let's see how Laderriere fares when he's got Boogaard, Simon and Fedoruk gunning for him. And being a Wings fan, this doesn't really surprise me one bit...I'm just glad he didn't turtle like another Av-Not of lore. Then again, that could always change...

Posted by troyt on April 08, 2008 at 11:41 AM

well once again here i go. we all know that lappy would win the fight if it wasnt broken up! Im from minny and some would call me a homer, But honestly arent we all homers? some1 posted that gabby is bigger than lappy so he shouldnt expect back up. well size isnt crap! look it Tie Domi! how big was he? if size counted then people like Matt Cooke would beat up Domi. that redickulous! (lol) its about Exp which Gabby has none. P.S. Mikebflorida and Kalismkkr are the 2 of the biggest idiots on this site! i truly believe these 2 are 14 yo just looking to piss people off, but please stop! just stay in yyour rooms and keep popping your pimples and stay off here!

Posted by jRooTes9 on April 07, 2008 at 10:13 PM

what a bitch Ian is he doesn't even drop the gloves how can you call it a win for him or even a fight good for gabby for not taking shit from a punk draw id like to see ian try fighting an actual fighter

Posted by MNOLDTIME on April 07, 2008 at 11:34 AM

I'd have to say close to a draw. The gloves didn't come off right away from either. Props to Gabby for not backing down. The refs came in quickly and the Av's 3rd man in...what p ussies!

Posted by Rynryn on April 07, 2008 at 02:19 PM

so is it still a fight if one of the fuktards didn't even throw an ungloved punch (there was plenty of opportunity to shed them--christ, the guy who hasn't ever fought got his throwing glove off...). At what point is this even a fight? Laperriere is degenerating into a Burrows. But if we're going to call gloved punches actual fight punches, then Ian gets it. I'm voting Lappy...if only because it makes him look like a huge douche when one goes over his fight card.

Posted by Domi#1 enforcer on April 08, 2008 at 12:07 AM

I used to like lappy, now i hope #24 beats his face in, but laperriere is way too much of a pussy to take boog on. Not even worth voting on really

Posted by brettzky on April 07, 2008 at 09:28 AM

Try Boogieman next time!

Posted by HM_93 on April 07, 2008 at 04:04 PM

Gaborik is a bit of a stick guy, but for Laperriere to do this was really a weak play.
