Both players are pansies.. keeping their visors.. what crap... thanks to the OHL this is what we have to look forward to.. if your going to square up and toss... lose the visor.. both of em

Posted by jcm on January 20, 2009 at 06:01 PM

I've always had a lot of respect for Iginla, that is up until recently. This is at least the second "affair" in about a week where he violently breaks the code and throws punches AFTER the fact. No mater what accomplishments he or the Flames have from here on, he is no longer worthy of respect from anyone. Iginla you are now a major chump!

Posted by mikebflorida on January 18, 2009 at 10:46 AM

Got plenty of time to shed the lid there Jarome? Draw in a crap fight. Slops to Iginla. A real warrior who knows the code would ditch the lid.

Posted by KevMack on January 18, 2009 at 04:23 AM

Iginla throwing a punch when Hale is on the ice....shocking. Way to kill a powerplay...have another cigarette.

Posted by Chaotic8 on January 18, 2009 at 12:57 PM

For those complaining about the visors, wendel17clark, quit your whining since they BOTH had visors on. Open your mouth only when an instigator has a visor.

Posted by paddyd on January 18, 2009 at 11:04 AM

Homer voting. That was a absolute draw!!

Posted by boxerlavean5 on January 18, 2009 at 03:17 PM

that for sure is a draw

Posted by ETR on January 18, 2009 at 07:00 PM

Draw, didn't realize so many from Calgary voted on here....

Posted by paulieb. on January 18, 2009 at 03:43 PM

Enough is enough. JAROME IGINLA is TRASH. Can't wait for somebody to feed that f***ing D-bag his lunch. Of course, they have to get past his visor first.

Posted by shrk33 on January 18, 2009 at 04:37 PM

draw, nice punch on the ice from Iginla, BOO!

Posted by wallysy1 on January 18, 2009 at 10:08 AM

mikeb florida is a flamer. total quuen

Posted by mcpuck on January 25, 2009 at 03:14 PM

Hale good at start, Iginla ended strong. Cheap shots by Iginla at end. Draw

Posted by pitt29 on January 19, 2009 at 05:26 PM

Draw. Iginla always hits guys when theyre down

Posted by MNBonecrusher on January 18, 2009 at 10:34 AM

Pretty lame. Not real impressed with "Iggy" in this tilt. Kept the windshield on, throwing after Hale was down. I expected more out of him. No winner here, take downs mean NOTHING!

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 18, 2009 at 11:53 AM

Nice cheapshot by Iginla when hale was on his back. Draw

Posted by bruins rule on January 18, 2009 at 08:24 AM

not much going on in this fight.

Posted by MajorGroove on January 18, 2009 at 02:34 PM

That's some cheap garbage from Iginla hitting Hale when he was down. Way to keep it classy Iggy! Cheap takedown, throwing when opponent was down, only a couple of punches land......not impressive....gave it a 4 and a draw.

Posted by plum29 on January 18, 2009 at 02:15 AM

i'm saying draw scrap wise, but wrestling wise, Iginla won. both landed exactly 1 clean shot, no clear winner.

Posted by kimocoyote on January 18, 2009 at 10:31 AM

Draw at best. Both landed punches. "it was what it was" a fight between two hockey players. Hale said in interview on PHX TV there was never any "bad blood" between the two when he was in Calgary. He had respect for Jerome.

Posted by Snowrider on January 18, 2009 at 01:56 PM

I can'T give it to Iginla just because he hit Hale when he was on the ice, shame on you Jarome!!!

Posted by sk8er4life on January 18, 2009 at 03:07 AM

gotta give it to iginla, looked like it might have been good if it wasn't for the take down

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on January 18, 2009 at 01:55 AM

bam

Posted by Belak_Norris on January 18, 2009 at 01:26 PM

Iginla with slight edge! Both kept visors on so can't say either guy was worse than the other!

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 30, 2015 at 04:55 PM

Started off like it was going to be a great Fight. Ended up less than okay. Iginla with the Win.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 20, 2009 at 06:51 PM

Hale was scared chiclets the whole time.

Posted by aznstylez on January 18, 2009 at 01:56 AM

Ex Teammates... Hale was lucky he fell, Iggy would've smoked him good!

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on January 18, 2009 at 09:53 AM

I could not see if anything actually landed because of the expert camera work. Jarome did take him down hard. Winner Iginla

Posted by blackgoldfan on January 19, 2009 at 12:39 PM

cheap shots on the ground by iggy at the end. but i still gave him a w. *Good point Dave 42 from Oklahoma. I'm sure you have been in a few hockey fights. And it wasn't the OHL retard. Stick to High School football.* ohl implemented more fight/helmet rules. senior league had the death.(not sure what its called though) hopefully some kind off tear away visor will save the day!

Posted by hal29 on January 18, 2009 at 11:42 PM

you guys needshut up and stop crying about the visor its getting old and just becoming a trend.or hitting a man down boo hoo,get over its hockey ther are emotions your not thinking that when you r fighting.read what probert wrote about the helmet issue

Posted by RebelliousArmy on January 18, 2009 at 09:36 AM

Always love to see the captain of a team throw down. I give the edge to Iginla even though lots of his punches landed to the back of his head and side of the head. Hale just didnt do enough so winner Jarome.

Posted by kniteforce on January 18, 2009 at 09:13 AM

pow

Posted by Wonderboy on January 18, 2009 at 06:57 AM

I get a kick out of these comments..."punching a former team mate when he is down". I am willing to be a lot of guys here that comment have never played the game. You never know what actually goes on in a dressing and how the guys respond to certain players. Example...I am a former Junior Linemate of Boogaard. I can't stand the guy. He is not a team player and he is incredibly selfish...given the chance, I would've punched him when he was down. Even more interesting is the fact that everybody did that to him in Junior because he didn't know how to fight yet.

Posted by omorales on January 19, 2009 at 01:13 PM

how is this a draw? win Iginla, smart play by Hale...

Posted by Sasky001 on January 18, 2009 at 10:51 AM

Both guys were wearing visors, so save the bandwidth and don't complain about it. I

Posted by BooSanta on January 20, 2009 at 09:17 PM

Every now and then Iginla will scrap looking for a workout..doesn't pick on much more than Hale here. Kinda cheap with the shot when Hale fell down, but Iginla was almost uncontested with the win here.

Posted by no123one on April 04, 2009 at 11:14 PM

How is it a draw when Iginla almost knocks Hale's head into the 5th row?

Posted by stardefender on January 18, 2009 at 05:09 AM

Iggy too strong for him, and there was a nice uppercut mixed in the take down.

Posted by BigJtheCanuck on January 20, 2009 at 11:34 PM

Hale got his bell rung on the last hit

Posted by acd1 on January 18, 2009 at 08:37 PM

Slight edge for Jarome.

Posted by Awesome-0 on January 19, 2009 at 03:55 PM

Oh yeah, Iginla is trash alright... the guys consistently scores 30-40 goals a season and drops the mits. You would love him on your team. Having said that, the shot at the end when Hale was on the ice was completely class-less.

Posted by lefthook25 on January 19, 2009 at 07:07 PM

Jarome Iginla is a strong man. Iginla=Win despite that last punch

Posted by Snot-Bubbler on January 18, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Iginla is the most underrated "Leader" in the NHL today. If I had the first pick in a mock draft, out of the current players in the league, I would make him my first choice, even above Ovechkin, and Crosby. I am not stupid Ovechkin is clearly a better player than Iginla, but Iginla is the better overall leader. Messier was not the best player on the ice, but people respected him, and followed him. Just my take.

Posted by darnelldevilsee on January 19, 2009 at 05:31 PM

Nice first left by Iginla but what was with the cheap shots while hale was down.

Posted by stizzo on January 18, 2009 at 09:51 AM

what was hale thinking - this is iggy, not someone you want to bust your scraping cherry with - clear win for iggy

Posted by mike563 on January 18, 2009 at 08:05 PM

igi kick s ass

Posted by Mouseman on January 18, 2009 at 05:15 PM

I think this fight was personal.

Posted by mullet33 on January 19, 2009 at 02:31 PM

Hitting a man while he is down and not removing the visor - must be Iginla..

Posted by kurri17 on January 18, 2009 at 03:29 AM

Lose the elbow pad, but not the visor? Lame. Not fond of the cheap shot at the end either.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 19, 2009 at 01:55 PM

gotta give the win to hale because of iginla's cowardly karate flip-------wtf jarome.....stand up and fight the man......dont flip him to the ice you coward...........

Posted by moneybags on January 20, 2009 at 04:13 PM

i gotta go with hale on this one.

Posted by nighthawk walt on January 18, 2009 at 09:56 AM

Hale got the snot beat out of him.Iginla loses a few points for hitting Hale when he was on the ice.But,still iginla gets clear win.

Posted by Cherndig on January 18, 2009 at 11:11 AM

David is a bum, If that guy would have showed that kind of heart with Jersey and Calgary he might have a steady job. They both had visors on. The best is when Jarome punches Hales lid off. who cares if Iggy hit him on the ice. There's worse thing than that. Get over it. Iggy clear winner and One of a kind Captain!

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on January 19, 2009 at 12:11 PM

This is a draw. The cheapshot at the end doesnt count you flames homers.

Posted by Hambone13 on January 20, 2009 at 12:22 AM

Draw. Should vote Automatic loss to Iggy for fighting with his visor...didn't man up and remove it like he has done before. Cheap shot at the end too.

Posted by Wild24 on January 19, 2009 at 11:55 AM

Clear draw. Didnt like Iginlas cheapshot at the end

Posted by RhonaMitra1 on January 19, 2009 at 11:57 AM

Look at all the flames homers who vote for their guy

Posted by RMKB on January 19, 2009 at 12:04 PM

nice cheapshot iginla you panzy

Posted by AllDayAP on January 19, 2009 at 12:09 PM

Iginla is a p*ssy!

Posted by chad420 on January 18, 2009 at 08:41 PM

allday draw...weak

Posted by terrystheman on January 18, 2009 at 05:26 AM

Jarome starts the fight with visor on and then punches a former teammate while he's on the ice, not his finest moment.

Posted by Dave_42 on January 19, 2009 at 12:29 AM

I also dont know why you fuck fags are complaining about visors. Both had visors on and if they BOTH choose to leave them on and possibly not have what happened in the OHL happen to them so be it. Half the people screaming take your visor off probably has never been in a real fight before in their life. I too think players should take visors off but if both have it on it does not matter!!!

Posted by GShakh on January 18, 2009 at 06:15 AM

Draw, Iginla is MF for last punches

Posted by tim daddy on January 18, 2009 at 01:32 PM

tough call, draw

Posted by wendel17clark on January 19, 2009 at 11:52 AM

Good point Dave 42 from Oklahoma. I'm sure you have been in a few hockey fights. And it wasn't the OHL retard. Stick to High School football.

Posted by Hoju on January 18, 2009 at 12:35 PM

both players kept the lids on w/ visors, so whats the problem?

Posted by audix2359 on January 19, 2009 at 11:40 AM

Iginla wins but a cheap shot at the end there.

Posted by B-taco on January 18, 2009 at 04:18 PM

Id be willing to bet no people on here actually play hockey or any sport for that matter when referring to hitting a "former team mate". Win for Iggy, Hale sucks and has the record for most NHL games played without scoring a goal!!

Posted by claire alexande on January 19, 2009 at 01:18 PM

easy win for iginla. hale has a big mouth and paid for it.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 23, 2015 at 02:23 AM

Iginla hammered Hale. That last shot literally knocked Hale's feet over his head.

Posted by marinermoose38 on January 19, 2009 at 08:14 PM

Yep, Iginla's a classy guy (yeah right!). Those were some pretty brutal cheap shot by the Lames capain, eh? WIN Hale.
