Good hit. Mayers is a cocklick for going after a non-fighter. Staal did hang on for life and survive. I can see Orr tapping on Mayers shouder in the near future.
Mayers 2 punches and a take down-Staal 0 punches and a sore ass.
Should have been an instigator.. Mara got kicked out the game before for doing the same stunt as Mayers.. It was a clean hit but Staal was beat
for as big as the staals are they are all sissies ... mayers should have gotten an instigator penalty here though, overreacting to a solid, clean check
Beautiful hit from Staal & to whoever said it was interference, you need to start watching hockey. Staal made solid contact to the puck carrier.
What a great idea, tough guys just start grabbing non-fighters; then they get an easy check mark in the win column. Mark up a loss for JM when Orr just grabs him and starts throwing them during a routine play next meeting. A needless reaction to a clean hit.
staal, either fight or stop checking.
Lol the punches and the takedown.
I was watching this when it happened Staal is not a fighter. Somebody call the police that boy got mugged.
Clean hit, but despite the over-reaction...it's nice to see the new improved version of Tucker stand up for his buds.
Here is an opposite example of the kaleta - mara fight the game before: Staal had a monster hit with no intent to injure. ok. Mayers sticks up for his teamate. ok. Staal sticks up for himself. Ok.
No contest win for Mayers. The Staals aren't made to fight. At least he didn't turtle, though.
Why would anybody stand up for Stajan?
Win for Mayers, but more impressed by the hit from Staal.
"Mayers is a tough guy." You got that right, Sam.
Surprised there wasn't an instigator... hopefully it is dying out for fighting sake. Win to Mayers who is way out of Staals league.
Mayers with an easy win
Way to stick up for your team mate Mayers... but why? It was a good clean hit! Oh, and next time make sure the person is ready to fight you. Mayers won this one, but only because Staal wasn't ready for him, and not to mention really isn't a fighter!
Mayers by a big margin. Good to see someone on the Leafs standing up for a player. lol we don't need Stajan fighting anymore.
The reason I don't like the instigator penalty is that they seldom use it when they should, and they do use it when they shouldn't. This would have been a case to call it. Mayer with the win.
Had to give it to Mayers, which is like saying it a win for Voros, which is a very rare statement
Staal lays out Stajan, Mayers jumps him. starts throwing overhands, then switches to the uppercut. peppering shots in on the youngster clear W for J-MAL
Mayers( a cool guy in public), shouldn't be the tough guy for toronto, none the less Holleweg(human punching bag). Mayers was most effective adn effective as a fighter after he throws big checks like he did early in his career in St.Louis along with Nash and Conroy on a line. Toronto, get a enforcer and stop trying to go with team toughness or emulating the redwings with no true toughguys, grab a goon on waivers and let the grit guys do what they do best, pound europeans.
Staal can't fight. Looked like a typical instigator and it's great that the refs aren't calling it much, instead they call tripping, interference, and hooking like it's going out of style. I just can't figure the NHL out. Win Mayers but of course he should win.
The Staals don't know how to fight, I like them but I hope they never willingly drop the gloves. Marc didn't have much of a choice here. Win for Jamal.
Ummm....ya, win to Mayers. Staal is lucky he could laugh it off.
Staal got rocked. Whether you think he wanted to fight or not, he dropped the gloves. My favorite part was Dubi coming in to save Stall. Like Dubinsky would've faired any better... Also - Why do some idiots vote for the guy who didn't get a punch in? 3% of you are fucking stupid.
Staal took one for the team....
Myers whipped him
Staal with a wicked hit...rangers fans should get used to seeing this i think. However this was an easy "W" for mayers.
Staal just hanging on for dear life.
Solid hit but interference by Staal. Jamal Mayers whip that boy.
Staal got owned.
Marc Staal is young, he will learn and become a very nice physical D-man.
STAAL! you need to go straight to the dressing room and super glue your gloves to you f_in hands! You got spanked, like you stole something!
Mayers is a punk...plain and simple. Clean check and he tosses his gloves and jumps Staal. Mayers blows and so do the Leafs.
Nice hit by Staal. Mayers should stick up for his teammates, but not after a solid check that wasn't by a goon, and wasn't really vicious. Why can't we have solid checks anymore?
Staal lost by a long shot. He didn't even throw a punch. However, the fight was unnecessary.
Staal is not tough, Mayers is.
JM clear win...stall not a punch thrown
stupid ass homers
Clean check, puss move by mayers going after non-fighter. Wonder how he would have reacted had Orr thrown that hit. Unfortunately for mayers Orr has proven to have a long memory. THis is not over
Staal wins because of the booming hit and than gets blindsided by mayers
