I have seen better hugging at the movies

Boring, drawn out affair, except for one sneaky right by McCarty. Drawzzzzzzz.

Kind of a Stortini fighting himself fight.....love these jerseys....NOT

That announcer was so annoying I had to shut it off.

Posted by SirYohans on November 09, 2008 at 02:03 PM

Very long fight with lots of grappling. Both guys snuck in some meaningless short punches. DRAW.

Posted by jealeman on November 09, 2008 at 03:35 AM

WTF was this? The only thing worse was listening to the fight on NHL on the fly and having to hear the homers from Detroit call this hug fest. McCarty got the only meaningful punches in. Disappointing...

Win McCarty.

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 09, 2008 at 11:20 AM

Mcarty and his cane win another. I was expecting better from these guys though. what a crap fight.

May I have this dance for the rest of my life? Will you be my partner and...

Brutal fight, huge hug fest. Not too bad of a finish.

very very borin fight

Detroitlan, you just may be the retard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do some f'n research before you slam someone so you don't end up looking like a [email protected]@. (unless you like to) The fight was broadcast on Fox sports net. You are right about the announces but look at the video!!!! R U a wings fan? your name has Detroit in it. Maybe you should pay more attention. As for the fight, or dance, McCarty may have landed a 1 or 2 more punches but is was pretty boring.

McCarty is trying to fight and Clarkson is trying to dance with him. Clarkson LET GO! Clarkson looked scared shitless when I was watching it live on hi-def.

Very slow start but at the end of the fight i think mccarty got a few quick punches in and that got him the victory.

McCarty slightly here.... But, the old galoot barley hangs on as his respirator starts to falter towards the end. Stay in the league a little longer, I heard Claude Lemuiex is making a come back!!!

Posted by PastorJ on November 10, 2008 at 08:56 AM

McCarty gets the win here here. He at least tries to throw some punches and actually lands a couple.

Posted by kalismkkr on November 09, 2008 at 10:07 AM

Too much hugging to get excited about this fight. Hopefully McCarty will continue to shake his fighting cobwebs off. Win D-Mac.

Posted by staceyb on November 09, 2008 at 06:55 AM

A battle of attrition. The only one that really landed was the quick left delivered by Carts when Clarkson looked to talk to the linesmen. Got to admire Carts for his stamina against the younger Clarkson.

A nice waltz until the last few seconds. Clarkson only threw about 5 punches. McCarty landed a few of the 10 he threw so he gets the nod on an otherwise forgetful hugfest.

Posted by IrishFiveO on November 09, 2008 at 09:17 AM

Gotta love mac, his band rocked too. Good ol' Detroit Rock. Mac wins this one.

Posted by superheckman on November 10, 2008 at 11:01 AM

Clarkson was holding on the McCarty for all he could. If you notice his hand is tightly grasped around McCarty's collar.

Posted by detroitwings08 on March 27, 2009 at 06:19 PM

ahhh

Posted by gmathiak123 on November 09, 2008 at 01:09 PM

McCarty wins no explanation needed.

Posted by SlimShaney on November 09, 2008 at 12:15 PM

good fight

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 09, 2008 at 10:40 AM

There you go Mac!! Mac gets the W. Landed more, and better punches

Posted by yzermanfan68 on November 09, 2008 at 08:40 PM

McCarty gets the win, Clarkson was just trying to hold on the whole time

Posted by DetroitIan on November 10, 2008 at 03:16 AM

Hey jealeman, you're a retard. Those were not Detroit announcers. Learn to read and you'll see the MSG at the top left corner. Ya know, Madison Square Garden? Gee where do you think they might come from? durpdeederrr As for the fight, D-Mac gets the win. Looking a little like his old self. Atta boy Darren. ***reply to PastorJ*** What the f*ck does that have to do with that guy saying those were Detroit announcers??? So they said, "here at Joe Louis Arena," NO SH*T. Of course they're going to say that, what are they going to do make up an arena name? And what the fuck does the logo at center ice have to do with anything??? IT WAS AT DETROIT. Of f*cking course the symbol was going to be at center ice. Neither of your points have ANYTHING to do with a guy saying he couldn't stand listening to those DETROIT announcers. No matter what town's feed you watched there was going to be a Wings symbol at center ice. And no matter which feed you watched they are going to say, "here at Joe Louis Arena." The point is if your not a dumbass you would notice there was a MSG at the top left signifying it was the Jersey feed. Both of your points made zero sense. WTF are you smoking buddy? Talk about a complete idiot. ****reply to tanneryrat**** Ummm....wow....you just earned biggest dumbass of them all. The feed that was showcased here was the MSG feed. Sure it might have been broadcasted on fox sports as well. But here at hockeyfights.com the MSG feed is the only one shown. So hurry up and get your retard of the year award!

U guys must be retarded! Darren McCarty couldn't beat my sister right now. He looks horrified everytime he fights. And he looked horrified against Clarkson. He hung on for dear life.

Posted by tomales on November 09, 2008 at 07:48 AM

There are guys people simply root for regardless of their team preferences. McCarty is one of those guys. Good going Darren!!

Posted by sjovocop55 on November 10, 2008 at 09:00 AM

Let's dance, a few punches thrown will give the slight edge to Darren!

Posted by jcstokes on November 09, 2008 at 08:21 PM

McCarthy wins. Didn't see anything that would merit points for Clarkson.
