Other Penalties: Hossa received a misconduct; Dan Hamhuis and Johan Franzen each received a slashing.
This is Suter all the way, he losses his helmet his jersey and gets taken down
this was comical, draw
Bob Probert & Marty McSorley are already turning over in their graves after watching this one....and neither one is dead yet!
Come on people Hossa might has well have been slapping at Suter with those sissy punches. He had a huge advantage since his sweater wasn't tied down and all he did was make sure he didn't lose his helmet. DRAW - Suter should be ashamed as well.
holy crap, what a mess! should have gotten misconducts for embarrassing their respective clubs.
looked like 2 little girls trying to swing pillows at each other........lame ass draw
The Europeanized Wings with a rare fight. Terrible Ted Lindsay must shed a tear with each passing game...Probert and Kocur, too.
I've said this since 05/06. Red Wings needs an enforcer and Darren doesn't count. I'd love to see McGrattan in the Wing uniform, but that will never happen.
This just in: The Detroit Red Wings have placed Marian Hossa on waivers because of his fighting major in last night's win versus Nashville....
Hossa.Hossa.Hossa crap fight. Suter looked like a real pu$$y.
Gotta shake my head at Hudler and Franzen for keeping their gloves on, especially while Hossa was sticking up for them. But they combined for 3 goals so I won't complain too loudly. Hossa looked really awkward fighting even if it was enjoyable to watch him drop them. I didn't see that one coming.
hossa's a girl
I don't know who the bigger puss is. Franzen for not dropping them after being slapped or Suter for the shot while Hossa was already down.
Well, Hossa was doing good for non-fighter, but all his punches were missed. It looked like they are both afraid to fight. Draw.
AYou can reallly pick out Hossa as the non-fighter. throws a punch like a psycho Who takes off their jersey?lol
Draw. Don't the wings have Aaron Downey in the minors?
it's nothing but a damn shame team holland/babCock have let it come to this. a really, really sad state of affairs indeed.
I don't care. It's just nice to see majors called in a Wings game.
Good to see a player like Hossa drop the gloves. Can't really call a winner in this one didn't see anything land
Draw. I guess puke Suter thought Hossa would just skate away. Surprise! Why does Hossa have to fight? Because Red Wing management is too stupid to call Downey back from Grand Rapids. Serious lack of toughness and grit that's gonna hurt the Wing's in the playoffs.
Gae this a draw. The Wings fighting! Probably the biggest surprise of the day so far for me in sunny old England.
Gotta call this one a draw, kind of awesome to see Hossa do that. I really thought Suter would kill him, but it almost went the other way around. Still, calling it a draw and a 4, mostly because it was Marian Hossa.
i was surprised to see these guys drop the gloves.
Hossa had one good Jab, but then hit the ice before Suter's rebuttal. Gotta give it a draw, no clear winner.
hossas got guts man
I would've rather seen Hudler and/or Franzen go, though the latter would've gotten mauled. Good to see a superstar like Hossa drop 'em every now and then...though will he now use the tie-down? The game was out of reach anyway, so it wasn't like him getting the game was a big deal.
I don't know if it's me but it looks like Suter wants no part of Hossa I mean it looks like he could easily beat him but he didn't really try to hit him that much? He let him off the hook. I can't read their mind but it looks like from my own eyes.
ah yes! the tradition continues....Kocur....Probert....Hossa?
Good for Hossa. Suter is the worst fighter in the league.
Franzen is a PUSS!!! he plays like he's a tough guy..then gets hit in the face and doesn't do nothing! at least the wings have hossa lol
what was the point of that?
LMAO! hossa? iu'll give him a W cause hes the only one that threw or landed a punch!!!
Points for Hossa for going, and landing a few. Suter loses points for the cheap shots at the end. Win Hossa (I can't believe I just wrote that)
if you lose a fight to Hossa, you probably should get into them.......
Suter has entered my "Bitch Hall of Fame". Its bad enough he fights Hossa(lol) but does'nt even exploit it. What a jackass.
loved it..probably a draw but im giving it to Hossa cuz the Suter family sucks.
Usually I call these ones draws, but here I'm give the win to Hossa. Had he not fallen down it could've been a different story, and I think Suter probably would've taken him.
w Hossa, i was at the game and he gets the nod cuz he was defending a cheap hit on Hudler earlier in the play. Hudler was on his knees and got hit from behind into the boards. it would have been sick if Jiri had been able to score on that break away after he got back into the play.
If a guy named Marian is doing your fighting, you need to address your toughness issues. As a die-hard WIngs fan all the way back to Roy Edwards and Nick Libbett, I have to say...this is getting embarrassing. Hossa did ok for someone who's probaly never thrown a punch on skates before, and Suter's a puke, for the cheap ground shot at the end. And I thought saying ''win Crombeen'' was insane. Win Hossa! PS ''I can't remember your name'' guy... If my life depended on a hockey fight, and Behn Wilson, in his prime, wasn't available...I'd take Goddard over Orr in a heartbeat.
Hossa looked better than I thought he would! I give the edge to Hossa... I was a big Red Wings fan until this year. I really do not like how they do things! Aaron Downey has a good year for them, makes other teams take them seriously and not constantly run their good players, and how do they reward Downey, they keep him in the minors for the season! Red wings are not going to go anywhere with the lineup they have! If they run into Calgary, Anaheim, San Jose, etc in the playoffs, they will get punished like little bit#hes! They need some toughness! Then players like Hossa wont have to fight!
My daughter loved this fight, I must agree Hossa was a surprise, but he won
Well, suter just can't win if he doesn't throw any punches. It's a really good thing that hossa doesn't fight very often though, judging by the way he was throwing those soft, off-balance punches.
Gotta love Hossa for dropping the gloves and doing well. He's doing it all this year with the Wings. Lots of spunk shown in this fight from a career goal scorer.
Edge to Hossa.
I thought if you didn't tie down your jersey you got a game???? Oh well hossa with the win. Props for attempting to did the visor
Hossa is true a Red Wings now.
Not a best fight in the whole world, but it was good one, 'cause you have to remember there was Hossa fighting. W Hossa.
Great showing by Hossa - a non-fighter against the more experienced Sutter, had he had his strap tied down, he probably would have dropped him, he also got caught up trying to be honorable and losing the shield and Sutter cheaply swooped in on him while he was trying to take it off Win -Hossa for honor and landing more shots
Win for Hossa - Suter should be embarresed - letting a non-fighter get the best of him.
Hossa did pretty well. Detroit is one of the most exciting teams to watch. They are a power house and have won 4 Stanley Cups in the past 11years, dynasty like I would say. They have a great team made up of great players that know how to win. Expect a repeat this spring, they will win their 5th cup in 12 years.
How is Hossa winning this? Hossa never landed a punch, while Suter landed one at the end while taking him down. Win for Suter, but it was close.
Draw Almost had a heart attack when I saw Hossa dropping the gloves though. Last thing our golden boy needs is to break his wrist.
Hossa by a hair.
Belak Norris, after those comments, you were never a Red Wings fan. you gave up on a Stanley Cup winner because they didn't keep a light-heavyweight on their roster? think of the years Detroit has won the cup. the team plays hard when they need to, not by fighting in the playoffs. good luck with your new team. and the rest complaining that someone on Detroit finally got in a fight after 30 games without one? and Suter pulled Hossa's jersey over his head and off.
the only thing suter did is that he draged hossa down... nothing else
A thing of beauty. Maybe the other pussy Europeans on my Wings will get a fucking clue after this and quit pussing out everytime there challenged. Hudler and Franzen should be ashamed. Hossa gets the W all the way!
hossa fixed helmet...fag
Hossa fell as soon as Suter got a grip, convenience or cowardice, Detroit like Montreal has no "Honor" 2 of the dirtier teams in the league for running people and never being made to answer for it
Hossa did absolutly nothing..... he attempted which definetly counts for a player such as him. Aside from that throwing wild shots and not landing any doesn't count for shit. Suter had one good one and then Hossa was disassembled.....
how can anyone say hossa won? he took off his clothes and punched the air...
hossa was praying for that fight to stop
hossa loses cuz he tried to punch suter missed and fell down
Win for Suter,Redwings suck,will get bounced in first round
Hossa is such a European bitch. Ruined Bryan Berard's Career.
Great tactical move by Suter to Jersey Marian right away and get him the 10 Min Misconduct.....He knew there would be no tie down and he could eliminate a real scoring threat for quite a chunk....Other than that a sloppy , crappy fight by two guys that dont fight too often anyway. Nice to see Marian throw down though....
Hossa was great! but yea, where was downey on that one (in Grand Rapids), the wings need some fighters like they used to have, then their superstars wouldn't need to fight. Go Wings!
Hossa's jersey came off giving Suter problems, but once he got a grip, he ragdolled Hossa until the ref's came in . Definite advantage to Suter
Screw Hossa and Screw the Red Wings
I agree I would like to see McGratton in Detroit, but with his substance abuse issue, he won't be wearing red....Wing fans hope for McCarty, but he's not even close to what he used to be. I dont think we see him in the lineup again other than Grand Rapids.... They are wanting to have Leino, Helm and Abdelkader play in the playoffs....
Hossa is a dickhole.
I grew up with Suter's dad and uncles in Madison and man were they tough. What happened to this generation? Maybe he was trying to do a Probert jersey shed? I doubt it. Draw. Seems like these days the whole fight is to see if they can get the other guy's visor off & keep their own on.
hossa tried to get rid of the helmet, and suter started throwing punches then. low move. never really fought, hossa tried to throw, but suter kept his head so far away, nothing could land. hossa goes off-balance, and falls. suter jumps on top. not a fight
That's just plain funny. But a good fight, by two guys who clearly have no idea what they're doing. At least Hossa seems pissed off and does something about it. Draw.
Man, he doesn't fight much but Hossa really did well out there. Way better than Semin's bongo attempt earlier in the year.
I gave it a 10.
Hossa landed the only punch of the fight. Gets the W. Suter fights like a little girl for hitting Hossa when he was down.
suter is overrated
nice cheapshot at the end, suter you douche
not too shabby really all things considered, and yeah, wayyyy better than Semin's slapping of Marc Staal.
How do you let a player like Hossa swing away without punching back? I thought Suter could act like he could fight.
hossa embarassed himself but he didnt lose neither.draw
Suter threw two punches, the cheap shot with his glove on to start, and the jab at the end while Hossa was on the ice, how lame! Too bad his jersey came off, I suppose that's why it appears Suter just held on most of the fight. Where's Downey? Tell McCarty to take a hike and stay out of the radio booth! Win Hossa for throwing more punches, even though most were in the air.
Im gunna have to change my name!
Win to Hossa, for bravery and for surprising Suter. This guy is gonna be a UFA and he doesn't even think about the possibility of been injured. Hossa's a team player and that's why he doesn't get the credit he owns.
4 fights for Hossa in ten years! Sheesh, what's the world coming to? Not a bad scrap from two pacifists. Very slight edge to Hossa, I guess.
