Good fight. Gotta call it a draw.

Posted by Gunslinger on December 30, 2008 at 11:29 AM

Comries old lady Hilary is a better fighter than he is. Still, 2 powderpuffs bitch slap each other and I do'nt give a damn who won. I'm gonna watch Orr/Fritz again.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on December 30, 2008 at 11:30 PM

draw....nothing more...nothing less....

Posted by MajorGroove on December 29, 2008 at 11:02 PM

This isn't much of a fight, they spent more time hiding than throwing. Each only landed a couple of punches but showed some stamina. Have to call it a draw.

Mites on ice fighting to a draw.

A DRAW. Not much landed by Comrie.

Posted by blues10 on December 30, 2008 at 08:53 AM

This fight is a draw. Comrie drops his gloves first to all you dueche islander fans because kyle apussy can't take a hit. Dawes never fights.

Posted by bradyj4 on December 30, 2008 at 05:24 PM

Leave the fighting up to the fighters. These two lightweights threw a lot but nothing really connected. Comrie's uppercuts looked horrible and Dawes looked like he was just swinging for the heck of it. Clean hit by Dawes to start it off.

Posted by eagle16 on December 30, 2008 at 12:36 PM

This is a hard fight to score. Comrie is the aggressor, Dawes seems to land what he throws. I'm going to call it a draw.

Posted by cerialthriller on December 30, 2008 at 11:43 AM

pretty much a draw, Dawes had no way to get his helmet off, Comrie dropped the gloves on him first there was no challenge period he just jumped right in with gloves dropped after a good hit on Okposo which led to a very romantic looking moment between Okposo and the trainer.

Posted by ETR on December 29, 2008 at 10:56 PM

Draw, no one landed anything more significant than the other. People complaining about Dawes not taking off his helmet, exactly when was he supposed to do this? Comrie pretty much jumped him as soon as Dawes checked Okposo.

Posted by probiehawk24 on December 30, 2008 at 08:35 AM

Comrie doesn't score so he fights.

Posted by EddieShore1 on December 30, 2008 at 12:48 AM

Not bad for a couple of lightweights. Always bugs me though when a guy wearing a visor seems more than willing to go. Drop the visor if you plan on getting into scraps.

Posted by captjameson on December 31, 2008 at 01:25 PM

both had shields on and started throwing, when was dawes supposed to take his hat off? he punched comrie's off. icelander tools

Posted by KO22 on December 30, 2008 at 12:44 AM

Good scrap for a few lightweights.

Posted by PSM1966 on December 30, 2008 at 02:42 PM

The only thing missing in this fight were their purses

Posted by Dell on December 30, 2008 at 03:45 PM

Comrie based on a straight right that may have landed.

Posted by Jellyczar on December 31, 2008 at 02:17 PM

To ETR when he asks when did Dawes have time to take the visor helmet off.... how 'bout before the game starts. He could have left it with his make up in his locker.

Posted by spiderj on December 31, 2008 at 01:16 AM

Dawes loses because his visor stayed on. Comrie tried to upper cut it off, but pu$$y ranger kept his pretty face protected. Wimp.

Posted by billy jack on December 29, 2008 at 10:51 PM

comrie with the gordie howe hatrick,plus he won the scrap.

Posted by JDForCommish on December 29, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Comrie with the win in a closer than anticipated fight. dawes not a fighter but should have take off the shield, at least they were both throwing. Good point by SMan05 though Comrie didn't exactly take off his own helmet either

Posted by tpr1960 on December 30, 2008 at 08:23 PM

Wow , I let Mike Comrie kick me in the ass , I must have a puss first name , ... say , like Nigel !!!!!!!!!!!! Rangers still suck .

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on December 30, 2008 at 12:40 PM

i was gonna call it a draw till i saw the end and Dawes pull off Comries's helmet. i guess Comrie could have tried to take his off. but he had better punches too. Comrie has good fights it seems, he's willing to throw against guys like Briere and guys his size that throw back. then the visor topic

Posted by smasham on December 30, 2008 at 11:08 AM

Fly weights how cute, Dawes early Comrie late, last uppercut gets Mikey the edge...

Posted by staceyb on December 30, 2008 at 05:48 AM

Hail Comrie, the mighty conquering hero for sticking up for his teammate Okposo after he got laid out by Dawes. Comrie finally earns his paycheck from the Islanders. Later in the game Dawes was back throwing his body around so the fight didn't serve that much as a deterrent.

Posted by zonkedforlife on December 30, 2008 at 02:22 AM

Did anyone see when Comrie got beat up by Kovalchuk or when a brawl started because he got nailed by Mark Bell and he had a huge Spaz.

Posted by BSTnougat on December 29, 2008 at 11:10 PM

Thought this was a typo when i saw who was fighting. Enjoyed it. I'll give it to Comrie despite Isles fans makings stupid comments about visors.

Posted by mcb789 on December 29, 2008 at 10:08 PM

comrie destroyed dawes in this bout. dawes did not have the guts to take off his visor. the chicken shield visor that dawes wears did not protect him during the beaten he took.

Posted by followthecode on December 30, 2008 at 08:11 PM

Only saw a few land, unfortunately for Dawes, one was the uppercut. Slight edge to Comrie.

Posted by thebigbea55 on December 29, 2008 at 11:45 PM

comrie doing uppercuts cause he knows dawes got a visor on.. so he can't punch straight on...

Posted by wallysy1 on December 31, 2008 at 08:19 AM

dawes wins early--but the comrie gets upper cuts in against a guy wearing a visor. probably a draw--but give it to comrie based on dawes' visor.--

Posted by MattyD2008 on December 31, 2008 at 02:23 PM

Good clean hit by Dawes and Comrie stepped right in...maybe a little quick, but a good scrap at the right time in the game...raised the excitement level. Comrie gets the nod but Dawes deserves a lot of credit for his effort since he's not a big thrower.

Posted by bruins rule on December 29, 2008 at 09:55 PM

this fight was better than i thought it would be.

Posted by dlbishop2213 on December 30, 2008 at 02:12 PM

Comrie with the win more thrown more landed...

Posted by marion on December 30, 2008 at 01:12 AM

Comrie wins this as he is the only one to land punches, though they were nothing special. it isnt dawes fault about the visor. comries was only off because it was taken off by a dawes "punch". as for the was not clean. first of all it was a late hit. the puck had been gone. second of all whistle had already blown for the offsides. it wasnt necessarily a dangerous hit or anything just okposo wasnt ready for it since play eneded and the puck was gone. comrie did the right thing in sticking up for his teammate.

Posted by DARCY T on March 24, 2009 at 07:46 AM

edge comrie

Posted by VeeReihen6 on December 29, 2008 at 10:27 PM

Comrie came on with the uppercuts...Dawes should've taken off his visor...

Posted by huskie on December 30, 2008 at 12:12 PM

Comrie would have trown more punches but It`s hard with the shield. You want to fight, take off the shield !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by toogood21 on December 30, 2008 at 12:42 AM

great fight. nice to see the 2 winnipeg boys dropping the mitts tonight

Posted by Helenius22 on December 30, 2008 at 02:19 AM

good battle two little midget....comrie win...

Posted by SCOTTSO on December 29, 2008 at 11:20 PM


Posted by b.t.wilson on December 29, 2008 at 10:07 PM

Another good one! Unfortunately after a good hit again, but I'm okay with that one. It was a big hit and I'd expect someone to jump in. Probably have to say Comrie with the edge.

Posted by nycbob on December 30, 2008 at 09:39 AM

dawes the win because hes a ranger and threw a hit! My guess is comrie was happy to see someone smaller than him, best midget fight ever. We should have fritz vs dawres, orr vs comrie next time just to up the freak factor. When the hell was dawes supposeed to take off his visor. He thows a clean hit, gets jumped!

Posted by NYRangers30 on December 30, 2008 at 01:15 PM

nigels first scrap and he was pretty good

Posted by SMan05 on December 29, 2008 at 10:21 PM

haha mcb ur a dumbass. im pretty sure comrie wears a visor too, im pretty sure he made no effort to take his helmet off, and im pretty sure dawes had no time to take his off. unless im just imagining things. you must be an isles fan.. good fight, call it a draw.

Posted by BlackAce on December 30, 2008 at 09:19 AM

Ex-Kootenay Ice kicking some Comrie butt!!

Posted by Don Gorgon on December 30, 2008 at 09:42 AM

Good fight? Really? Am I watching the wrong video?

Posted by RG034 on December 29, 2008 at 11:54 PM

dont blame dawes for not taking his shield off comrie has 1 and dawes had to pull it off his head

Posted by bbout2c on December 30, 2008 at 06:55 PM

good to see the little guys going at it. i guess one of these guys had there big wheel stolen before the game

Posted by preds321 on December 30, 2008 at 01:29 PM

was there a whistle or something? What was wrong with the hit?

Posted by jcstokes on December 29, 2008 at 10:46 PM

Very close- Dawes earlier- Comrie later.

Posted by gmr133 on December 30, 2008 at 03:51 PM

Great hit by Dawes. Dawes gets the better punches early, Comrie with the better stuff later--nothing much really lands, though. Draw. Great hit by Dawes.

Posted by tim daddy on December 31, 2008 at 10:01 AM

decent lightweight bout, its kind of hard to see what happens at the begining, draw

Posted by Kersus on November 04, 2018 at 06:47 PM

Very even bout that was very entertaining without any injury. Solid hit by Dawes and both guys wanted to go. Well done by both and while Comrie might have had a slight edge it can not be called a win by either talent.

Posted by chad420 on December 30, 2008 at 03:24 PM

offcourse hes throwing uppercuts,dude has a visor on...MC slight edge win

Posted by DevsFan30 on December 29, 2008 at 10:41 PM

Suprisingly decent fight.

Posted by a99hammer on December 29, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Comrie landed a huge punch and was fighting better than dawes.

Posted by marinermoose38 on December 30, 2008 at 03:12 AM

As much as I despise Comrie both as a person and a hockey player for the fiasco that saw him traded outta Edmonton, I really like watching his fights. He gets in 2 or 3 a year it seems, they're all pretty entertaining, and he doesn't lose. In this one, I think Dawes through a couple more than Comrie early, but without a doubt in the second part of the fight it was all Comrie who landed a number. Clear win for Comrie in a fight that really wasn't very close.

Posted by bltlord on December 31, 2008 at 03:29 PM

jellyczar, couldent have said it better, if your a fighter, you shouldent have a visor, or atleast take it off

Posted by [email protected] on December 30, 2008 at 10:32 AM

Dawes gets jumped after a clean hard body check. He held of Comrie in a fight he didn't want to be in. Advantage Dawes.

Posted by aj99ny on December 29, 2008 at 11:38 PM

Love seeing dawes with the good hit, and not backing down.

Posted by imissbarnaby36 on December 30, 2008 at 09:28 PM

first dawes fucken drops bitch boy okposo and then has an even up fight not bad
