Ha haa! Good job McCarty!

Punch, grab, punch, takedown: could've been better.

crap fight

Posted by mikebflorida on November 18, 2008 at 09:56 AM

God Stortini is HORRIBLE.

Posted by JSIK on November 18, 2008 at 01:55 AM

i wish a reporter after a game would ask macT how he likes huggy bear's fighting.

Posted by justafightfan on November 19, 2008 at 06:32 PM

Mc Carty starts before Stortini even gets ready,but when you are a washed up,and broke what else could he do i guess,They released McCarty the next day and its about time,he is a disgrace to the NHL.They only signed him last year cause they felt sorry for him.On the other hand Stortini is brutal why dont the OIL get rid of the loser.I dont care about the fight they both shouldnt be in the league

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 17, 2008 at 11:52 PM

wtf. thats all i got to say. at what point does a guy say to himself i'm gonna stick to hitting and not get beat up any more trying to fight cause i suck at it? just wondering.

Posted by koooch on November 18, 2008 at 05:14 PM

stortini is pathetic! the oil should get katerina witt out of retirement to scrap for them. Dr. phil does' nt hug as much.

Holy Hugapalooza......Once again I apologize to all Members for this patheic display. Like dear old Dad said it's better to give than recieve ZACK...FFS...sigh......

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on November 18, 2008 at 12:00 AM

when his helmet fell off you could see Hugtini looked scared "oh no. i punched him and now i'm in really in a fight... better hide my head in his armpit." what a puss.

Posted by Angel of Sin on November 18, 2008 at 07:39 PM

Huggy Bear it again. Stortini would be a perfect advocate for the NHL's loving and caring side. "Hi, I'm Z.S. You look upset about something. No no, don't fight me, hug me. It's huggy bear. I play for Edmonton. My role is to hug you..and you...and you...."

Posted by Tony Esposito on November 18, 2008 at 12:39 AM

Storweenie is an absolute embarrassment. They need to cement his gloves on so he does not continue to make a fool out of himself and the Oilers.

Posted by elks_scraps on November 18, 2008 at 12:49 PM

Why does Stortini contiune to fight? Last time i checked, necking the guy isint great technique Win for McCarty for actually throwing

Posted by chinmusic on December 01, 2008 at 12:45 PM

McCarty gets the win, even though he's still a waste of a roster spot. Stortini should change his name to Huggy Bear.

Posted by Jake98 on November 18, 2008 at 06:10 AM

Loser Stortini didn't even throw one punch

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 18, 2008 at 11:29 PM

Did that announcer say...'Stortini, is a registered tough guy' without question'???? Seriously, I have a few questions... like...has he EVER won a single fight?...How about a draw then??? Anyone?? OK, how about ''faired well'' ??? Sill nothing??

Posted by Ortmeyer on November 18, 2008 at 06:56 AM

Why does Stortini even bother?

Posted by 69goon on November 18, 2008 at 10:20 AM

Oh my god,I almost peed myself laughing soo hard when the announcer called Stortini a "registered tough guy"..........................oh,wait a minute..........two drops.....................two drops of pee came

Posted by staceyb on November 18, 2008 at 05:43 AM

Carts is one bad fight away from ending up back in Grand Rapids where he belongs so he fights every battle as though it was his last. Mickey Redmond couldn't figure out who he was fighting in this one.

Posted by willismc on November 18, 2008 at 09:00 AM

Stortini is NOT a tough guy as the announcers claim, he is the worst fighter in the whole league. I don't think I have ever actually seen him throw a punch.

Posted by Scott4 on November 19, 2008 at 10:02 AM

Oh my God,why is Stortini so BAD "fighter"???? I didn't see him throw a a fight...whatever.... Please could he get ban on fights!!!!!!

Posted by Bruins29 on November 19, 2008 at 08:51 AM

Stortini might be the worst "enforcer" in NHL history! Man he is terrible. Even 45 year old Darren McCarty has no problem kicking his ass.

Posted by rusty696 on November 18, 2008 at 12:45 AM

Stortini really hugged the crap out of him, that'll show him! He really is an embarrassment to the sport, easy win McCarty.

Posted by FlagsFan on November 18, 2008 at 06:03 PM

Stortini storms behind the net after McCarty who took an extra poke at the goaltender, after the gloves are off Stortini runs into numerous rights from McCarty, who was seemingly trying to avoid the death lock of Stortini, Stortini eventually got his way though and hugged until he took some more punches.

Posted by shrk33 on November 17, 2008 at 11:28 PM

the announcer should say, registered hugger,

Posted by hubmonkey on November 18, 2008 at 09:13 AM

Clear Win to McCarty... Stortini passing out hickies while giving big hugs as usual...

Posted by bob_like_fudge on November 19, 2008 at 05:43 AM

it puts a smile to my face to see stortini take a couple while he tries to hug someone yet again

Posted by trpaulson on November 22, 2008 at 11:49 AM

McCarty wins. Stortini sucks.

Stortini is embarrasing

Posted by legion31 on November 18, 2008 at 05:11 PM

even sortini's mother can vote for him!!!! hey zack, please stop fighting!

Posted by lowbrow78 on November 18, 2008 at 02:54 PM

Why were the announcers calling Stortini a tough guy? I think Stortini might have hurt his vagina during that fight.

Posted by superheckman on November 18, 2008 at 11:41 AM

I knew when I saw Stortini that McCarty, even past his prime was going to get the Win. Not sure what Mickey was talking about in Stortini being a Registered heavyweight. Maybe he's a Registered punching bag to Heavyweights. He must not watch many of Stortini's fights. Clear Win for Big Mac.

Posted by Ryan44 on November 17, 2008 at 11:57 PM

[email protected]*! I hate Stortini! Even when he is got good position in the end, the hugfest starts! Thank god DMcC with to clear win!

Posted by jbaker3924 on November 18, 2008 at 12:39 PM

Win McCarty.

Posted by Juha82 on November 18, 2008 at 04:10 AM

weak show by Stortini. Good show by McCarty. CLEAR win goes to McCarty, the rockman.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 18, 2008 at 07:47 AM

Stortini can't fight. Wow, ownage by McCarty

Posted by Franchise on November 18, 2008 at 08:39 PM

When McCarty whoops your ass, you should never drop your gloves, ever. I spit out my beer when the announcer called Stortini a "toughguy".

Posted by iceman88 on November 18, 2008 at 09:59 AM

I agree there is no point to this guy even dropping the gloves all he wants to do is hold on to a man. Hey Zack, why don't you come out of the closet already. I really feel bad for you buddy, you have to get punched in the head repeatedly in order to get your much needed man love. He clearly has a chance to swing here when they get loose and all he does is try to get close again. In case you have not noticed Zack this is not wrestling. I hate this guy, know your role you cant fight.

Posted by Bear72 on November 18, 2008 at 07:40 AM

The old man taught stortini a lesson maybe after the last two years stortini should take up golf he sure cant fight

Posted by GWL on November 22, 2008 at 11:57 PM

stortini is so fucking boring

Posted by Humper on November 18, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Let me see. McCarty pounds the crap out of a bigger guy who is 13 years younger. Stortini hugs a old man for dear life. He should go away.

Posted by wildonefan on November 19, 2008 at 05:56 PM

Stortini needs to find another hobby, this hockey fighting thing is'nt working out for him. Registered tough guy? Please, more like registered numb skull.. Somebody drop me a line when he wins one..

Posted by adambomb13 on November 18, 2008 at 11:09 AM

Registered tough guy ???? , Stortini ???? I thought I saw Zack trying to put his tongue in McCarty's ear when he was getting in tight.

Posted by jodan111 on November 19, 2008 at 02:23 AM

Classic Stortini here...the pacifist enforcer

Posted by Towmater on November 18, 2008 at 06:41 PM

Huggybear vs Old Man contest, the old man beats him down, huggybear should be ashamed at the way he fights, what a puke

Posted by tstack on November 18, 2008 at 12:33 PM

Old Mac, love la bud and I''''m just glad you didn''''t get your ass handed to you again. Not only did he get his shots in quick but he kept going after the tie up. Don''''t have a problem giving him the W.

Posted by bruins rule on November 17, 2008 at 11:14 PM

mccarty with the easy win in this fight.

Posted by plubber on November 19, 2008 at 12:12 AM

Zack, you embarrass your team and yourself each time you pretend to fight. Hugging is not a penalty. Therefore Zack's penalty minutes are WAY overstated.

Posted by assassin on November 18, 2008 at 02:36 PM

a couple of jr. tough guys!

Posted by lampington on November 18, 2008 at 05:35 AM

Nice job oldhead! win - the immortal mccarty. glad to see the voting seems to have improved. (i.e. nobody voted for stortini simply because he landed on top)

Posted by scairns on November 18, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Note that Larry Murphy comments on McCarty knowing who he's fighting, i.e. this guy hugs so get started quickly. Perhaps some noticed that McCarty had a small cut on his nose, but I think this was from the helmet when they were in close. Mac is looking better; I know some want Downey up but McCarty offers more offensively and nearly scored last night after scoring a pretty goal recently.

Posted by jkluhr on November 18, 2008 at 12:10 PM

All Darren McCarty.

Posted by Jellyczar on November 20, 2008 at 07:56 PM

Stortini looses again.... is there a fight on this site where he has won? What a horrible fighter....

Posted by redwingrocket on November 19, 2008 at 07:46 PM

McCarty straight up pounded the slug Stortini.

Posted by IrishFiveO on November 17, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Did that announcer call Stortini a "tuff guy" twice, even a registered tuff guy. On behalf of the announcer, I would like to apologize to all legit "tuff guys," cuz Stortini is not one of them. A past his prime Mac owned Stortini. Gotta love that fine young Irishman, Darren McCarty, and his band. Next time please turtle up Zack, ala Claude Lemeiux.... wouldn't be any more pathetic than what you bring to the table on a regular basis.

Posted by Reggie999 on November 18, 2008 at 03:52 PM

Stortini loves to hang on and dance....Quit boring us to tears and trying to call yourself a tuff guy when you don't even try to throw a punch....Clear win to the old pro MACCER

Posted by Truk on November 18, 2008 at 12:49 AM

Stortini's awesome! I wonder who would win in a fight between him and Brock Lesnar?

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on November 18, 2008 at 08:21 PM

whoever voted for stortini should be condemned to an eternity of locked up huggin stortini.....or they can go hang themselves..either one is fine wit me

Posted by Crooked on November 17, 2008 at 11:04 PM

not even close, mccarty takes er down...

Posted by detroitwings08 on March 27, 2009 at 06:16 PM

i hate it when they tackle at the end.

Posted by yzermaneely on November 21, 2008 at 09:35 PM

McCarty must have been tired from throwing so many. Storini looked like he didn't know he was fighting.

Posted by danielmcgee on November 19, 2008 at 01:59 PM

Good thing DMac isn't drinking anymore, if so he would probably be real mean and tear guys in half

Posted by cjm502 on November 22, 2008 at 01:27 PM

D Mac destroys Stortini. D Mac is just warming up after not fighting almost all last year, than summer.

Posted by Wis.HockeyWest on April 03, 2009 at 06:40 PM

that a boy Darren. whoop on that hug master. Zach is real bad.

Posted by JRich1031 on November 17, 2008 at 11:19 PM

mccarty wins

Posted by mjb_17 on November 18, 2008 at 02:51 PM

I can't believe McCarty's last fight with Detroit has to be against this pice of S H I T!!! This guy is a waist of time! Good Luck Darren

Posted by DIRTYWATAH on November 18, 2008 at 08:33 AM

This is what happens when Stortini actually tries to throw. He gets fed about five lefts to start then tries his usual hugging. Win McCarty.

Posted by carguys on November 17, 2008 at 11:55 PM

Strotini is a joke

Posted by Wensinkfan on November 18, 2008 at 04:46 PM

Good fight! Both players got hard shots in with McCarty taking the win. I'm glad to see this since last year Detroit was the generic team made for P C television. They tried it with Washington but had to go with Detriot. With guys like McCarty around players will have to forget about ladies nights. Good win to McCarty and Detriot.

Posted by Screaming Buffalo on November 18, 2008 at 12:01 AM

Stortini sucks and these announcers sound like idiots.

Posted by clapper24 on November 17, 2008 at 11:56 PM

Stortini is an absolute embarassment to anyone who has ever dropped their gloves. Good for McCarthy for not giving him a chance to start holding on right off the bat.

Posted by stevkrause on November 18, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Best McCarty has looked all year in a scrap, really steps up to a heavyweight in Stortini and handles him nicely

Posted by PastorJ on November 18, 2008 at 10:48 AM

Registered tough guy?? More like registered sex offender. Stortini humps McCarty's leg while eating punches. Clear win McCarty

Posted by BooSanta on November 19, 2008 at 12:43 PM

Great seeing ol' McCarts throwing as much as he is lately. He keeps the jersey grasping Stortini from doing anything here. Total dom for McCarts for sticking to his fight and not Stortini's

Posted by millwright1966 on November 18, 2008 at 05:23 AM

wow......McCarty was ready for that one

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on November 18, 2008 at 10:42 AM

Stortini..........Stop fighting

Posted by cmshort11 on November 19, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Stortini is a bum, he just got handled by the grizzled old veteran. I think Stortini may be the worst fighter in the NHL as far as enforcers go.

Posted by abucketofyuck on November 19, 2008 at 09:21 PM

zack stortini- proud expert in the ancient asian fighting style of "Turtling". Drop this joke back down to juniors. mccarthy is an old man and still dominated him

Posted by eddieshore on February 09, 2009 at 12:32 AM

I love when guys that think they're tougher than they are go in to start something and have the tables turned. McCarty is the victor, hands down.

Posted by radioactiverich on November 18, 2008 at 03:09 PM

Pretty good scrap till they started necking in the middle WTF.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 18, 2008 at 10:26 AM

There you go Mac!! Mac gets the W. Starting to look like his old self.

McCarty worked him!!! Who ever put draw your an idiot!!!!

Posted by Aaron Walnuts on November 18, 2008 at 08:40 PM

Fight started with a number of short, solid shots by McCarty. Stortini tried to answer but had nothing on them. The two wrestled around for a little bit with McCarty trying to take of Stortini's helmet. McCarty got loose and landed a couple more shots before Stortini took it to the ground. Clear win for McCarty.

Posted by icie0099 on November 18, 2008 at 04:54 PM

DMAC was an animal. It's so great to have him back!

Posted by kalismkkr on November 18, 2008 at 07:13 PM

Darren looked good, but anyone does against Stortini. I love the Wings and I love Mickey Redmond, but I hate listening to Mickey announcing the Wings games. Too much of a homer for good commentating.

Posted by E_S_A_D on November 18, 2008 at 01:44 PM

Good for McCarty, it's been a long road for him and he's looked iffy in some of his fights. This one was a throwback to the old power lefts of McCarty in the 90s. Dominating with for Darren.

Posted by DetroitIan on November 18, 2008 at 12:06 AM

Atta' boy Darren! Clear win for McCarty. Still not his old self. But looking good lately. Nice to see. Hope he keeps it up!

Posted by Hell of a TILT on November 19, 2008 at 12:19 PM

Stortini got PUMPED......He better start fighting middleweights again!!

Posted by Redwinger03 on February 04, 2009 at 08:20 PM

MCCarty should have just pounded him from the get go. I mean he's a great player and a great fighter.

Posted by brymaster1 on November 18, 2008 at 12:01 AM

Posted by gmr133 on November 18, 2008 at 11:32 PM

The only thing stortini is heavyweight of is sniffing other guys colognes. Dump--this--stiff. Win Mc.

Posted by wildguy12 on November 18, 2008 at 05:06 PM

Does Stortini even know how to throw a punch? Every fight of his is clutch and grab. Worthless.

Posted by sjovocop55 on November 18, 2008 at 03:47 AM

McCarty started out throwing but danced halfway through. Win for McCarty
