Considering how strong and indestructable you guys think Boogaard is and how big a pusssy Barch is, this fight didn't result into much of anything. DRAW

Posted by nighthawk walt on November 27, 2008 at 08:55 PM

crap fight,barch hanging on for dear life and boogaard with the kidney punches then falling down.draw

Posted by cmshort11 on November 27, 2008 at 12:41 AM

You have to give Barch credit, he's a middleweight at best and he's fought some of the best heavyweights, brashear, laraque, parros, peters, give the guys some credit for having balls. to GetUrWigSplit13 if you think Barch is like Stortini watch all of his fights with Brad May, there freaking classics, and lets see you drop em with Boogaard.

Posted by corsairzero1 on November 28, 2008 at 12:02 PM

they didn't do anything..barch just held on so he wouldn't get hit..more of a dance then a fight...

Posted by Clark75 on November 28, 2008 at 05:53 PM

So I'm giving this one to Barch.......He got the take down. Isn't that how everyone judges fights on here. Boogaard has the worst balance in the league. Loved watching Belak knock out 4 of his 7 teeth.

Posted by gryphon7878 on November 27, 2008 at 10:03 AM

Screw that....perhaps Barch should not have gone Boogaard as he is 3 feet taller then him, but stepping after a shady hit and doing what he could not to get pumbled...crap fight...Barch gets the take down.....

Posted by Leafs2006 on November 28, 2008 at 05:07 PM

Barch gave a clinic on how to " Drop the gloves and hug and dont let go" 101, what an idiot. Booooooooogarrd the #1 contender behind BGL!

Posted by Ortmeyer on November 27, 2008 at 10:53 PM

Ah, Barch doing his Stortini impression

Posted by joeye4 on November 27, 2008 at 08:34 AM

not much of a fight with Barch scared to death to let go. Boogard towered over him. Maybe that was why.

Posted by plum29 on November 27, 2008 at 12:56 AM

wow, never thought i would see Krys Barch SCARED. he was just hanging on for life, like "crap, what did i get myself into". but at least he "dropped the gloves".

Posted by jkluhr on November 27, 2008 at 01:18 PM

Krys Barch looked like a scared little girl, that was pathetic, throw a punch buddy come on.

Posted by Riomouse911 on November 27, 2008 at 01:13 PM

Standard cheap shot by the piece of shi* boobgaard. He wins the fight, tho.

Posted by cementhead33 on November 28, 2008 at 01:30 AM

hold on boogy will break your face what a pussy

Posted by Wensinkfan on November 28, 2008 at 01:03 PM

Boogaard gets a bad win for a couple of late swings. Other than that, a hugfest.

Posted by Tony Esposito on November 26, 2008 at 11:50 PM

"HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Krys Barch

Posted by mikebflorida on November 27, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Total crap fight. Barch was scared to death. Boogaard is simply to big, he hurts people on a regular hit without even trying and a guy like Barch isn't going to hurt Booger. Boring to watch, I wish Boogaard wasn't even around, he's only entertaining when he fights someone his own size and that's totally rare.

Posted by chl37 on November 28, 2008 at 07:42 AM

barch doing his huggy bear impression.

Posted by toedrag on November 28, 2008 at 01:58 AM

Crap fight. What message was Barch trying to send, exactly? That the NHL is a non-checking league and if you want to throw your weight around, you're going to have to hug-it-out with Barch? Nice.

Posted by Franchise on November 28, 2008 at 10:05 PM

Rule: If your going to step up and drop gloves, at least attempt to throw a punch. As much as Barch didnt want this fight, by the looks of it, either did Boogaard. He looked like he really didnt want to take advantage of the situation the way he could.

Posted by MNBonecrusher on November 27, 2008 at 02:15 AM

You know, I have seen Barch fight in the past. He's tough, and normally not a coward. But this was just some stupid shit! Barch initiated the fight, then applied the death grip and hung on for dear life. He made himself look like a punk! P.S. Hey Sasky, why would you even be on this site you f&^#ing woman? Boogaard is what this site is all about!!

Posted by Hell of a TILT on November 27, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Good god, I know he had to stand up for the guy, but at least try to throw a punch and then fall down......That was a joke.......Dallas is in need of a real enforcer!!

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 27, 2008 at 08:12 PM

boring fight with an expected outcome.

Posted by wildguy12 on November 27, 2008 at 03:59 PM

WoW, some of these bias comments for Barch are extreamely pathetic. "at least he droped them" NO, thats at MOST he droped them because thats all he did. "Barch with the takedown" WHAT!!!! Thats Boogy's way of saying Im boared, I though you wanted to fight? "but at least he stood up for his teammate " What diplayed that he was standing up for anyone? "this guy won't back down to anyone" ?Turtle? "Boogie's too stupid to slow down and not hit Robidas" Part of the game...along with fighting. "Guys like Boogaard are what is wrong with the NHL" ?? "Boogaard is simply to big" True, but Boogy has lost to many smaller opponents so excuse not valid. I understand people want to rationalize for their guy, but come on, this was pathetic. Soon coming to the game, Kidney protectors?

Posted by kevindman9 on November 27, 2008 at 09:38 AM

this fight was boring, it reminded me of high school fights

Posted by bighitsbenny on November 29, 2008 at 08:17 PM

Boogaard was to dominant and Barch was just scared and huged Boogaard the whole time the fight sucked but boogaard threw more punches that landed

Posted by DaShaws on November 29, 2008 at 12:50 PM

barch was just wrestling boogaard. it was a horrible fight

Posted by RykerHC on November 27, 2008 at 05:42 AM

I don't see why Barch got into this fight at all. He went straight for the hug, so Boogaard couldn't reach him, not much of a heroic act. I give the win to Boogaard.

Posted by JCobra67 on November 28, 2008 at 03:26 PM

Barch is one of the toughest guys in the league. He plays the heavyweight for the Stars and they list him heavier than he is. In reality he is about 200 lbs and he is fighting a guy who has about 5-6 inches and over 50 lbs on him. It would be nice if the Stars would get a HW, but instead they force Barch into fighting all the biggest and toughest guys in the league when he should be fighting guys around 200 lbs and under. I feel sorry for Barch when he is forced into dropping the gloves with Boogaard, BGL, Brashear, etc. Win for Boogaard although nothing happened. Barch was just trying to survive and I don't blame him. Barch is not much bigger than Steve Ott. Can you picture Ott fighting Boogaard?

Posted by snowave on November 27, 2008 at 12:14 AM

jeez, the announcers might as well get on their hands an knees in front of Boofart. yes, barch did nothin and lost, . but this guy won't back down to anyone.

Posted by IrishBrawler on November 27, 2008 at 05:16 PM

Edge to the guy in the awful Christmas uniform -Boogard the elf. These 3rd uniforms have really looked hideous this year-eh?

Posted by snaggletooth on November 27, 2008 at 11:43 AM

If you voted for Barch you do not belong on this web site.It is called not

Posted by b.t.wilson on November 26, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Boogaard with the win I guess for being the only person to punch. Barch has gotta have some sore kidneys. I don't blame the poor bugger though, I'd be holding on for dear life too, the size difference was ridiculous.

Posted by Shappa on November 27, 2008 at 12:17 AM

Barch - 2 mins for roughing, 2 for delay of game. Hang on for your life!

Posted by CairnsIsGod33 on November 27, 2008 at 01:36 AM

Barch needs to pick his battles better. Boogey WINS because he is the only one that threw a punch.

Posted by alsport on November 28, 2008 at 04:59 PM

Yeah.....Barch had to protect his teammate even though he knew he wasn't going to win this one. I've been Boogaard fight enough times to think that he held back a little bit in this one.

Posted by Hennessey on November 28, 2008 at 05:11 PM

I don't understand why Barch went after him. I mean yes you should stick up for your team mates but this was a clean hit. watch the replay. boogaard got him with the shoulder the only reason it looked like the elbow is because the dude 6-8 hitting a 6-0 guy. Barch has got some balls and i respect that but the win to boogaard.

Posted by Martell on November 27, 2008 at 11:27 PM

Barch, Put a dress on. You went looking for it, now take it!!

Posted by smichaels10 on November 27, 2008 at 12:38 AM

Why did Barch bother dropping the gloves?

Posted by Big_Goon on November 28, 2008 at 10:47 AM

Barch wins for simply surviving... Win Boogard

Posted by rusty696 on November 27, 2008 at 12:48 AM

How much did Barch not want that fight! Can't say i blame him though.

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 27, 2008 at 07:00 PM

Boogaard winner. Barch survivor.

Posted by Dell on November 28, 2008 at 09:27 PM

Kudos to Barch, He did his job on a total mismatch.

Posted by billy jack on November 26, 2008 at 11:53 PM

i can understand barch not wanting to fight the boogeyman,then dont,i would like to say A for effort for barch,but he just hung on for dear life.

Posted by Medulaman683 on December 20, 2008 at 01:45 PM

Barch got destroyed, but I suppose that shouldn't be a surprise. No contest, a decisive, easy win for boogaard.

Posted by bostonrs555 on November 27, 2008 at 02:18 AM

Barch should be Suspended for humiliating the game, his team, and all that is good in this wonderful sport!!!! Shame Shame Kris-sy!!!!!!!! And Sasky you tard, the whole site is based on guys like Boogaard and I for one enjoy his hooliganism!!! Take your anti-beastmen views and cram'em Gandhi......

Posted by penman1188 on November 27, 2008 at 02:00 AM

that fight sucked..barch is such a pussy..he decides to try and be a toiugh guy but does nothing but hug boogey...boogey is frustrated cause this puss wont just fight.. he gets few good rib shots..but still barch dont act like u got balls and then do this

Posted by roundhouse4u on November 27, 2008 at 12:19 PM

win to the boogy man. i give him an extra point for burping and changing barch diaper. barch is not a tough guy just because he drops his gloves with the heavys. hes just a puke. if he would actually go toe to toe with them instead of running. then maybe.. BOOOOOOOGAARD BITCHES!!!

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 27, 2008 at 09:44 AM

What? That must be Dallas' strategy. Drop the gloves and hug away.

Posted by jodan111 on November 27, 2008 at 02:27 AM

Barch looked tired here

Posted by HUTCH80 on January 04, 2009 at 11:44 PM

Boogaard is lanky and uncordinated

Posted by shrk33 on November 28, 2008 at 02:39 AM

Bad match up for Barch. I'm not a Barch fan, but he did step up to challenge Boogaard. He just hung on for dear life and not get too badly beaten.

Posted by Chaotic8 on November 27, 2008 at 12:02 PM

I honestly believe that Barch is just a punching bag.

Posted by Jellyczar on November 28, 2008 at 09:54 AM

All Boogey...who really got boned on the elbowing call.....Barch should be happy he didn't get his face busted up

Posted by jbaker3924 on November 26, 2008 at 10:05 PM

Win Boogaard.

Posted by Goon24 on November 27, 2008 at 01:02 PM

if you voted for barch your retarded and i dont get how boogaard should get an elbowing the guy tucked his head and boogaards elbow was down.

Posted by drledford on December 21, 2008 at 12:08 AM

Barch is an idiot. What a goon. No skill, only a goon.

Posted by staceyb on November 27, 2008 at 06:12 AM

Barch was hanging on for dear life against the Boogeyman--but at least he stood up for his teammate Robidas. Huge Stars win last night, though. They sure needed it.

Posted by seipmoney on November 29, 2008 at 10:00 AM

barch what a damn sally if your gonna throw down, at least throw a punch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on November 27, 2008 at 12:20 AM

wow what a p*ssy barch he taking lessons from stortini....if u dont think u can handle a boogaard bomb dont tug on supermans cape....i wish i got to see boogaard smash barchs face in! maybe next time if he leaves his skirt at home and brings his hockey gear to the game !..thats so cheap that we get to see boogaard fight and he cant murder the dude cuz hes gettin hugged and molested!!!

Posted by Flyers2185 on November 28, 2008 at 01:25 PM

Barch was completely overmatched

Posted by Lister100 on November 27, 2008 at 09:51 AM

Boogaard is one of the very few players that you can actually imagine ribs cracking from body punches with all the armor players wear today. Ouch!

Posted by Jabroni305 on December 01, 2008 at 06:51 PM

YOu pick the fight, then you choose to hug it out! Get off the ice Barch! And yet another BS penalty on Boogey...

Posted by budbud1989 on November 28, 2008 at 01:16 AM

If you look closely you can see Boogaard smile. I know Barch is not a fighter but don't drop the gloves if your just going to hug the other guy. It was long enough after the hit, he could have skated away.

Posted by loganh222 on November 27, 2008 at 12:35 AM

Barch relaised he made a mistake a little bit late....all he could do was hang on for life

Posted by PICKLEHAMMER on November 27, 2008 at 10:25 AM

Ouch. Pretty nasty bodywork there.

boogaard with the easy win.barch was holding on for dear life.

Posted by fightmeister77 on November 27, 2008 at 11:39 AM

Barch hung on for dear life. He's lucky Boogard didn't break his face.

Posted by BooSanta on November 28, 2008 at 03:50 PM

That was indeed a nasty Darien Hatcher like elbow (when Hatch was with the Stars) from Boogey. Barch just holds on for dear life but gets a kidney transplant from the Boogeyman. If Barch had kidney stones they just got blasted. Barch will likely be urinating blood after this debacle. Good thing they were near the end of a shift or Boogey would have had the strength to free his right.

Posted by adambomb13 on November 27, 2008 at 06:40 AM

Barch sticking up for a team mate very hesitantly, he knows his role and he knows Boogie is going to crucify him. Boogie is so damn nasty ! Who voted for Barch , what have you been smoking ?

Posted by Bruins29 on November 27, 2008 at 12:00 PM

Just hang on and hope the Boogie Man doesn't kill you, right Barch?? I don't blame him though. Derek is a bad dude.

Posted by mbaumann on November 28, 2008 at 09:44 AM

Big thumbs down for Boogaard here. Barch did a good job of tying him up. Boogs should have beaten the crap out of him. He's like 4 or 5 inches taller than Barch. What is the deal with Boogaard over the last couple years?

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 29, 2008 at 03:36 PM

I don't see how Boogaard got an elbowing call. It was a clean hit. Barch forgot who he was fighting. Whoever voted for Barch is a piece of sh*t. This was all Boogaard in this fight

Posted by TheAsianator on November 27, 2008 at 05:32 PM

Whoever voted for Barch is a retard. Barch was totally holding on for dear life. He probably pissed out a kidney after this fight. Boogaard wins easily

Posted by Heavyweight2 on November 30, 2008 at 09:30 PM

Barch was holding on for dear life. Boogaard landed the only punches of the fight and gets the win.

Posted by Wild24 on December 03, 2008 at 05:53 PM

Clear win or Big Derek Boogaard. Who's the homer who voted for Barch?

Posted by aces50 on November 27, 2008 at 06:03 AM

Barch is a pus**. If your going to drop the gloves with the Boogie man you better be ready. All I remember when I see Barch is Danny Carcillo with a 1 punch knock out on Barch's chin. I cannot believe some one voted for Barch? Do you need glasses? Are you blind?

Posted by stiri on March 03, 2009 at 05:26 AM

db should have won this by ko in two seconds, he didn't, so it is a draw

Posted by 9darter on November 27, 2008 at 06:03 AM

Haha, Barch has balls, I give that to him! Won't make "Fight of the Year", that's for sure.

Posted by bam932 on November 27, 2008 at 10:03 AM

Barch didn't want this one ... after seeing what Carcillo did to him why would he fight booger?

Posted by chad420 on November 30, 2008 at 06:22 PM

boogeyman with a nasty hit...suck fight... big for KB steppin up 2 fight but he didnt throw 1 punch

Posted by hrngmprd on November 27, 2008 at 09:13 AM

Barch is an idiot. If you're not going to fight, don't bother. Barch is not in the same class as Boogaard. Stay home little boy.

Posted by marinermoose38 on November 27, 2008 at 04:14 PM

Barch doesn't even try to throw a punch. The worst hugfest I've ever seen.

Posted by tomales on November 27, 2008 at 02:58 AM

Though holding on for dear life, Barch still has huge balls. He was more than hesitant, but what guy of his size wouldn't be? Win to Mutantman for leading the dance, and nothing more

Posted by rb97 on November 30, 2008 at 06:56 PM

how could 2.3 % say barch won he didnt move his hands the whole time

Posted by 93FF on November 28, 2008 at 05:38 AM

Barch showed corage in dropping gloves but once they hugged up I think he relaixied that it was not a good move.

Posted by Barrel03 on November 27, 2008 at 04:06 PM

I dont get that one?.. Barch turns around goes after Boogaard, then clearly dosent want to fight him

Posted by Ceejay on November 28, 2008 at 01:58 PM

Good idea by Boogaard throwin' the body punches - but, how'd he lose his balance and fall down at the end?

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on November 27, 2008 at 10:44 PM

Barch sucks

Posted by TBLightningGuru on December 28, 2008 at 10:06 PM

if your going to start a fight with someone to fire up your team. dont start the fight and then hang on for dear life.

Posted by chrisinroch on November 27, 2008 at 09:50 PM

Embarrassing. All those who give credit to barch....for what??? And the initial hit should not have been an elbowing minor. Again, folks who voted for Barch Win should be banned from the site

Posted by philabronc on November 27, 2008 at 12:05 AM

Kudos to Barch for coming to teammate's aid against the huge Boogaard, but Barch never threw any real punches. Win for Boogaard, but only because he swung.

Posted by hund311 on November 27, 2008 at 01:23 AM

hmmm..i wouldnt fight him either barch. good thing is after that one you dont have to get any metal plates in your face. does that mean barch gets the win??

Barch just tried to hug it out... fag.

Posted by wannago_letsgo on November 27, 2008 at 10:47 AM

it takes a brave person to drop the gear with Boogaard, let alone when your hear is tilted that far back to look at him, if you gotta do your job you gotta do your job. Pick a better time though Boogaard's hit was clean. I don't blame Barch one bit for holding on like that and I assume he will be pissing blood for a few days after those kidney shots. Since you have to pick a winnter, Boogaard gets it.

Posted by ruckusrider on November 27, 2008 at 10:00 AM

that was lame! hey Barch if you are willing to pick a fight then FIGHT! dont just hang on and pray that the refs jump in before you get your butt kicked. Anyone who votes for Barch is an idiot because i dont remember him throwing one punch!

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on March 10, 2009 at 03:17 PM

I love how immediately after they dropped 'em, Barch just latched onto him. I think I heard him say, "I love you, Derek."

Posted by Rillettes on November 27, 2008 at 08:38 AM

Those kidney shots must hurt.

Posted by pynkfloid3 on November 29, 2008 at 07:39 PM about embarrassing. it looked like barch fell in love with boogard. i'm getting so sick of these fights. please stop making us fans watch this crap!!! barch you should be ashamed of yourself. SKATE AWAY DOUCHEBAG YOUR A LIGHTWEIGHT AT BEST!!!!!!!!!!!
