karap fight

Posted by DARCY T on March 24, 2009 at 08:24 AM

a draw

Posted by mikebflorida on January 01, 2009 at 02:20 PM

Hopefully everyone actually watched this fight until the end and see that Booger lands 1 punch to the helmet and nothing else of consequence. Shelley doesn't really land anything either. DRAW The Booger slurpers are obviously out in full force today. lol Should I expect anything less? The guy hasn't done squat this season but people still will him to victories despite him doing nothing.

Posted by Riley32 on January 01, 2009 at 05:33 AM

i hate how boogaard got excited when shelley falls and he goes and tries to hit on him while he's down. i hate that crap

Posted by huskie on January 02, 2009 at 11:01 AM

A draw for me. Shelley lost in balance at the end when he tried to land a bomb

Posted by SVBrules on October 24, 2009 at 09:59 PM

fuck booooooooogarrrd

Posted by niftyweave on January 01, 2009 at 09:38 AM

The only reason Boogaard wins is because he's huge. His balance is terrible. If you can duck one of his bombs then you'd be able to land a few against him no problem. His fights are boring, I'd rather watch a good tilt between two middleweights who know how to fight.

Posted by Gunslinger on January 01, 2009 at 01:32 AM

The size differance was to much for Shelley, who though game, did'nt get the job done against Boogaard. Nothing to be ashamed of though.

Posted by HockeystarIowa on December 31, 2008 at 10:22 PM

the Boogey man vs the Mayor of the lollipop guild He broke his helmet with a punch, thats a hammer.

Posted by kalismkkr on January 01, 2009 at 10:11 PM

Good to see the Wild step up against a good team. Boogaard easily controlled this fight. This fight didn't seem nearly as impressive as the announcers made it out to be.

Posted by Bear72 on January 01, 2009 at 12:02 AM

Shelly wanted a shot he got his ass handed to him but its nice to see the big guys go at it especially when the game is still on the line

Posted by Leafs2006 on January 03, 2009 at 09:48 AM

Boooooooooooooooooogard wins do you fight this guy? His reach is Jurassic! Im sure Christine Neil could handle Boogy though!!! Doh.... That was an ironic statement for enquiring minds! Cheers! LOL

Posted by trpaulson on January 01, 2009 at 01:21 PM

Booger wins this one . Jody ain't no slouch though.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on January 01, 2009 at 06:35 PM

Nothing hard actually landed. Boogie did throw Shelley around like a little school girl at the prom. Winner Boogard

Posted by brazos on January 01, 2009 at 10:02 AM

Actually I think Shelley does better against Boogaard than most.BUT that is not to say that he won the fight. Boogaard landed the best punch. Win Boogaard

Posted by ibled4theusa on January 02, 2009 at 04:05 PM

Too bad the BBBooooogggie man won't attack it much easier to whack someone who is lunging at you. But they better run a catscan on Jody as he might have a concussion.

Posted by qmchugh on January 01, 2009 at 01:10 PM

Boogard wins just by breaking the helmet alone, most of his punches didn't connect cleanly, but when you have the power to break a helmet they don't have to connect cleanly,.

Posted by wildonefan on January 03, 2009 at 04:32 PM

Shelly asked for it and boogie gave it to him.. boogie wins...

Posted by Maxwerm on January 02, 2009 at 04:54 PM

Boogard is the most over-rated fighter in hockey. "Too big"or "too much" for Shelley? Booger's lost fights before, gents. Lost 'em bad. Look it up. He wins this one, but it's not "domination" if you don't land half of your punches. Win Booger . . this time, if he can stay in the majors long enough. ***tty hockey player. Seriously.

Posted by Crowdpleezr on January 01, 2009 at 12:52 AM

Glad I don't play hockey. The Boogie Man is a freak. Did he really break his helmet? Good God.

Posted by followthecode on December 31, 2008 at 11:57 PM

Stop messing with your bucket, Shelley and throw a punch! Tough match, but W to Boogard.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 01, 2009 at 12:07 AM

i love shelley......but boogard stomped on his ass........good showing by boogard.........the one hit knocked shelly's mouthpiece for boogart in this one......shelley is one tough mother fuc***........was very enjoyable to watch....way to go boys

Posted by Dell on January 02, 2009 at 06:11 PM

Shelly is a trooper....Boogaard's hands are going to be like Joey Kocur's if he continues to hit helmets like that.

Posted by brad houghton on January 02, 2009 at 08:50 AM

a textbook Boogy win not letting the shorter man get inside and get going....long bombs not sure if anything landed to the face but Shelly lost a piece off his helmet with one blow....Boogy is a load when he's motivated clear win Boogaard

Posted by nigelneil on January 01, 2009 at 12:18 PM

Good scrap. Boogie with the win, even though he didn't land many clean shots, a lot of shots to the back of the helmet. Shelley is still a stud, takes the punches and keeps coming back and never backs down. Much props to Shelley.

Posted by Franchise on January 01, 2009 at 10:26 PM

Easy win for Boogie. First he drops Andre Roy with a punch to the helmet, then he breaks Shelley's lid. Someone has to keep the helmet manufacturers in business.

Posted by roundhouse4u on December 31, 2008 at 11:53 PM

boogy with the iron fist sends parts flying off the hat of jody. win boggy. BOOOOOOOOOGUAARD BITCHESSSSSSSSS

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 31, 2008 at 09:44 PM

Boogard is a Colassal. Shelley stood in there but Boogard had the better scrap and gets the W

Posted by MNOLDTIME on January 02, 2009 at 04:26 PM

Both guys were throwing but Boogs landed the "helmet" shot for my win. If it would have been face and not helmet it would have been a remake of Fridge.

Posted by Clowes ABeast29 on January 01, 2009 at 03:07 PM

Boogy won...

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on December 31, 2008 at 09:23 PM

boogaard cracked shellys helmet! it was crazy...but shelly did hold up well good fight good game! WILD ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by tonik on January 01, 2009 at 08:37 AM

nice fight but shelley was slow...

Posted by habsdom on January 01, 2009 at 09:12 PM

boogard with the win decent tilt

Posted by Clarky 33 CAN on January 01, 2009 at 01:07 PM

DB is at a point that unless you take advantage of some balance issues by keeping him moving, he'll set up and launch bombs that can't really be stopped except by the helmet or your grill...

Posted by TheYoungGun on January 01, 2009 at 09:58 PM

It was a pretty good fight, but since shelley was the one that wanted to go should have put up a better fight.

Posted by Jellyczar on December 31, 2008 at 11:39 PM

Boogard is a beast......He will kill somebody someday.....a monster.

Posted by cambec on January 01, 2009 at 09:56 AM

Boogaard wins. Amazing how so many posters have to say something negative about not liking this guy, yet they post comments that make it appear they have a fight club man crush on him. I heard he is +5 for the season and I saw his one punch on Roy on here. No one cares if you like him, like his hockey skill....this is a fight forum. Shut up about his hockey skills. He is one of the top 5 fighters in the NHL. That is what he is paid to do and that is his REAL and ONLY get over it and like him for what he is. OH, and being huge is one of his assets, so when someone says he only won because he is huge...idiot...doh...and he can punch so hard that he can KO guys, break helmets and slow the rotation of the earth.

Posted by dcmac on January 01, 2009 at 10:10 AM

Turn off the sound and watch the fight. Boogaard was the winner. The clubbing was mostly off side of the helmet. Shelley was stunned but I didn't see any blood. Of course , it would have been a different story if he was hit cleanly on the jaw. But he was not.

Posted by Dampland on January 01, 2009 at 11:26 AM

Boogaard dominates. Shelley hanging on for dear life at the end.

Posted by vortases002 on January 01, 2009 at 11:55 AM

Die hard Sharks fan, but this was DB's win. Shelley goes with everyone and did the right thing in trying to spark the Sharks. Both will go to pick the team up. Shelley did, and DB took care of business

Posted by b.t.wilson on December 31, 2008 at 09:52 PM

I don't care much for Boogaard, but man is he great. Every time he fights I think more than any other fighter out there right now, there is such huge potential for a KO. The guy's a monster. Not that he dominated this fight really, but I still gave him the win. A scary man.

Posted by moneybags on January 01, 2009 at 01:11 AM

boogy all the way

Posted by seipmoney on January 01, 2009 at 02:16 PM

shelley just hasnt learned his lesson boogaard has kicked his ass so many times, but i do give shelley credit for continuing to take the beatings boogey throws him.

Posted by BsFAn4LIF on January 01, 2009 at 11:01 AM

Boogaard broke Shelley's helmet with a Win Boogaard

Posted by blackgoldfan on January 01, 2009 at 02:20 PM

this wasn't the runaway victory the anouncers made it out to but but the boogey man still gets a "W". *boogey needs to work on his balance he looks like a newborn calf wobblin around ou there...*

Posted by nighthawk walt on January 01, 2009 at 01:12 AM

boogaard kicked shelley's butt,if you start a fight don't you think you should do a little better?also,i think the announcer started the party a little early,thinking it was a tooth instead of a piece of helmet.

Posted by bruins rule on December 31, 2008 at 09:18 PM

pretty good fight between 2 heavyweights.

Posted by kimocoyote on December 31, 2008 at 10:57 PM

I am not a "Boogie Man" fan but what a shot. Against a guy like Shelly got to give him his "props"

Posted by dlbishop2213 on January 01, 2009 at 08:31 PM

Boogard just too fuckin big!

Posted by ebvan65 on December 31, 2008 at 09:41 PM

Boogard definitely got the better of Shelley even though he didn't kill him. Close but no cigar.

Posted by thebigbea55 on January 03, 2009 at 01:43 AM

i wanna see boogaard takes on Artyukhin too... just want to see someone with similar size fighting..

Posted by darkknight9 on January 01, 2009 at 04:43 PM

Boogaard: The bane of helmet manufacturers everywhere.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on January 01, 2009 at 12:33 PM

Shelley just couldn't handle him. Boogaard has too much size. He should be destroying everybody!

Posted by brokn_stik on January 01, 2009 at 10:55 AM

I was actually at this game sitting right in front of the fight, it was bomb. Boogey owned on Shelley and you could tell at the end of the bout that he didn't want it to end.

Posted by staceyb on January 01, 2009 at 05:22 AM

Derek Boogaard with his best fight of the season. This was fun game to watch, almost with a playoffs atmosphere. The Wild fans were all pumped up and you'd have thought they were going to explode when their team won in OT.

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on January 02, 2009 at 01:14 PM

wow...domination by boogaard as usual and against a big boy.....i cant believe he broke his helmet thats a first...boogaard is a f*ckin beast i love watchin him fight!!!

Posted by TIRE TIM on January 02, 2009 at 04:06 PM

good action boog to big shelley has heart

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on January 02, 2009 at 08:48 AM

did i hear someone say it would be a good match for boogaard to take on Evgeni Arthukin? The russian may look like something feirce but until he fights someone who is a true heavyweight he is nothing to mention........

Posted by rangersfan10 on October 17, 2010 at 07:23 PM

good fight

Posted by huddles on January 01, 2009 at 09:51 AM

Boogard is a beast but so is THE RUSSIAN on the lightning who bench presses over 400lbs and can throwem, with or with his visor.. He will give boogie a battle

Posted by JCast408 on January 06, 2009 at 12:42 PM

Boogard. They both did damage but Boogard handed out more. Still props to Shelley for rocking with Boogard. Note Shelley lost that tooth long time ago.

Boogie all night! The big man worked Shelley in this one. Kept his composure and choose his punches very well. RIP Boogie! Unforgotten!

Posted by gmr133 on January 01, 2009 at 06:48 AM

Boogaard with maybe a slight edge, closer to a draw. Nobody lands a real solid punch. That said, Boogaard is still one of the worst, least talented hockey players in the league. It's pathetic.

Posted by bigdog2007 on January 01, 2009 at 10:03 AM

On sportsnet the replay showed Boogaard breaking Shelly's helmet. Cool. Shelly is pretty tough for a guy with two chick names (Jody and Shelly for you Flyers fans)

Posted by tomales2 on January 01, 2009 at 12:56 PM

You know, I was really dreading this game. Although I have no respect for The Mutant as a hockey player (but that isn't what this forum is about, is it?)-there are tough guys like Probert, Shelley, McSorley, even Brashear that can, or could play some-he's so big and strong that I knew my guy was in for trouble regardless of how good a year he's having. At least he was willing, as he always is, and didn't get killed. Win for Boogaard. Gee Cambric, thanks for clarifying things. What a fool.

Posted by azjim on January 01, 2009 at 04:49 AM

Boogaard won the fight but most of his punches didn't land.

Posted by ERossi on January 04, 2009 at 09:49 PM

Win for boogaard. Check it out, a lot of the boogey hater comments are from 'nucks fans if you look at their profile.....Go figure.

Posted by 93FF on January 01, 2009 at 12:46 PM

Shelley showed character ( Lucic take note) but Boggaard clearly the winner.

Posted by Oil Can Henry on January 01, 2009 at 04:39 PM

Shelley had nothing -- looked way over-matched. Easy win for Boogaard but still needs better balance.

Posted by NewMike on December 31, 2008 at 11:40 PM

While Boogaard controlled the fight, nothing serious landed. It looks like Shelley could have gotten a charging penalty, at least judging from the short clip at the start. Shelley looks invigorated this year compared to his last few seasons with Columbus. You have to wonder if being on a winning team for the first time is have any effect on his performances.

Posted by Mr106 on January 01, 2009 at 09:50 AM

Boogey dominates with the fists and in front of the net

Posted by samtheman on January 03, 2009 at 11:22 AM

Win for Boogard but not nearly as impressive as the announcers made it seem. Went from bloodying Shelly to knocking out a tooth to knocking a piece from his helmet. I think Boogard is one of the most over-rated fighters in the league.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 21, 2015 at 01:49 AM

Shelley is a glutton for punishment! The Boogeyman pummeled him.

Posted by giefs on January 06, 2009 at 03:03 PM

A decent fight. I liked the end where Shelley went down and Boogaard literally picked him back up to try and throw more punches.

Posted by a237149 on January 01, 2009 at 06:02 PM

The Boogeyman has got to be the #1 Enforcer in the League now..
