Jean Francis got dropped by a jersey jab.... Glass Joe Look Out!!!! W andy Hey mash-ya, LOL, yeah right, look at the votes Muttface!!!!!

Don't get this but hey, a scraps a scrap. If you instigate the scrap, then you should handle your partner. Jockstrap looked like he was pissed because Mandy hit Tommy with a butt bump and he didn't get any of the luvin'. Mandy didn't want and part of it either so he made him smell his own pit stank with the jersey pull. Pretty weak draw.

Interesting how the Jock doesn't do well in fight when the other guy is ready from the get go. The instigator penalty was the right call. Gilbert ducked out of the way of the hit and JF had a tantrum like a child. Too bad Sutton didn't spank him like a child

Posted by mashya on November 02, 2009 at 11:50 PM

bostonrss you are just as bad as mcb so ill just assume your the same guy, go find something to do pissant "dropped" hahahaha how does sutton have the win when all he does is tie jacques up before pullin his sweater over draw, 2 and this has to be the shittiest announcer around, get him off the air

Posted by Santokh_Gill on November 03, 2009 at 07:30 AM

Simply A Draw .......................but credit to Mr Jean-Francois-Jacques for sticking up for his team mate !.

Posted by Truk on November 04, 2009 at 12:32 AM

Please remember that not everyone in the rink or on the ice has a bird's eye view. JFJ has a game to play and it obviously happened quick and I'm sure he didn't have as clear a view as us. The only thing he is certain of is that his teamate is on hit rear and the other guy is standing up. Having said that I'm pretty sure he still would have come over and stuck up for a teammate regardless of how he was hit or what happened. If he doesn't he goes back to the bench and what do you think the coaching staff thinks? There's a reason these guys are in the big league folks. I for one can't believe it's his first dust-up of the season, I'm think he would have fared better had Sutton not gotten the hands up on his "fly-in" but still would have hands full. Draw.

oilers suck

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 04, 2009 at 10:58 AM

Suttob just held Jacques back and waited for the fight to end. He wanted no part of it after a clean, weak hit. Draw

Posted by Juha82 on November 03, 2009 at 02:13 AM

clear DRAW

Posted by Anthonygiam on November 03, 2009 at 04:37 PM

Nice hit to start, neither landed any punches

Posted by 99greatestever on November 06, 2009 at 09:29 PM

listen to the Isles guys whine over what was a pretty sissy fight!! :-)

Posted by ay0medo on November 03, 2009 at 03:53 PM

Sutton whooped his a$$! :D

Posted by lovejoy on November 03, 2009 at 01:59 AM

Sutton tried to hit Gilbert by hip-check skating backwards, but Gilbert stopped so it was common colision. JFJ is moron...

Posted by Riomouse911 on November 04, 2009 at 12:53 AM

When a guy is being held by another player, then run, you bet a fight will start. If it doesn't, the team is weak and will be run again and again. Sutton hit Rivet high last week, and Rivet cleaned his clock. It's pretty clear folks are tiring of his "gonna cause an injury" hits and are letting him know he'll pay for that stuff. Sutton won, as he should have, he's 5" taller than Jaques.

Posted by Tony Esposito on November 03, 2009 at 10:49 AM

I agree with the announcers on this one, I don't want big hits to go away because a guy feels he'll have to fight after one.

Posted by gongshowallday on November 09, 2009 at 02:31 AM

Jersey jabs galore. One right was landed by Sutton, so he gets the nod.

Posted by shane0mack on November 03, 2009 at 09:19 AM

beautiful & legal hit. Jacques jumps in for some reason (the guy who got hit, got right back up - come on!). definition instigator penalty as jacques came flying across the ice to get at sutton. ...then he realizes he may have bit off more than he can chew. Sutton was tired from a long shift and didn't want to fight, but he controlled it nonetheless.

Posted by Bad Dawg on November 03, 2009 at 05:11 PM

Jacques---- what a loser!!!! Back to the Minors!

Posted by Towmater on November 03, 2009 at 11:09 AM

Nice move, JF, pick a fight and then lose.

Posted by SABREHATRED on November 02, 2009 at 11:09 PM

Jacques didn't have the wingspan.... edge sutton.... buffalo is scag town

Posted by marty4pres on November 02, 2009 at 10:20 PM

again bruisey! are you actually watching these fights? jacques drops from a gloved donkey punch, then never lands one at all! not to mention trying to crawl through the glass when his jersey is pulled over!

Posted by craig_9806 on November 03, 2009 at 05:59 AM

Easy win Sutton

Posted by Big Little Tank on November 06, 2009 at 12:42 PM

For once, I am in agreement with the guys at FSN. Fights after a good NEEDS to stop. Back in the day, if you got smoked, you'd looked for who did it, take his number and then get him when the time was right. Now it's fight after fight when a good hit is delivered. This would be the only time the Instigator is needed. Mr. Sutton with the slight edge and win. Kudos for him to not back down for the submarine attack.

Posted by bruins rule on November 02, 2009 at 10:06 PM

not too much going on in this fight.

Posted by mcb789 on November 02, 2009 at 08:32 PM

sutton with the one sided win in this scrap. sutton connected with several good punches.

Posted by kngfan004 on November 02, 2009 at 10:22 PM

Clear win by Sutton...what an idiot...JACQUES IS! take yourself out of the game without even a good was a collision you moron. You should be benched for stupidity. Sutton was clearly the victor here and showed some class for not pummeling you!

Posted by Viper20 on November 03, 2009 at 04:35 PM

Sutton was waiting for clear hit didn't throw many punches some good stiff left jabs tho. JFJ throw more but coundn't connect. Sutton was clear winer for waiting for clear shot and connecting more plus it was a clean hit.

Posted by djangoQ on November 02, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Didn't Sutton just get jumped by Rivet in the last game for a questionable forearm/elbow? I know some might say the players he went after got low, but if Sutton is going to lead with the elbow, it's going to be this kind of stuff every night for him. Can't wait until a legit fighter takes him on for one of these questionably dirty plays.

Posted by cdineen on November 03, 2009 at 06:52 PM

Sutton hits Gilbert on a clean hit, gets up and then proceeds to snuff Jacques before the "fight" starts, and Sutton pulls the sweater over his head. the fight itself is a draw but the Sutton gets the big picture win IMO.

Posted by Vukota Hattrick on April 07, 2010 at 04:01 AM

good win Sutton

Posted by stevkrause on November 03, 2009 at 03:05 PM

clear win - Sutton

Posted by Spinner55 on November 03, 2009 at 08:34 AM

Steve MacIntyre is paid to fight the other team's tough guy. Robert Nilsson is paid to to score goals and get points. Nilsson can't get it done on the ice; MacIntyre can't get it done in the press box. It is time for the two to exchange places. Quinn, welcome to MacT's nightmare!!!!!

Posted by bruiseyoureye on November 02, 2009 at 09:32 PM

jacques pounded on the puzzy boy sutton that couldnt fight his way out of a wet paper bag.

Posted by acmocaco on November 03, 2009 at 01:03 PM

Commentators all around the league continue to complain about the fight after the clean hit. I for one have no problem with it and its not because I love watching a good scrap. We love a clean hit, some of them are dangerous, and sometimes guys get hurt. Nobody wants to see clean hits become illegal, and nobody wants to see their players become injured. Everyone likes watching fights... so I'm not sure what the problem is here. Players can police the game themselves. And it is far better than the alternative. Remember Mike Brown's devastating clean hit on Jiri Hudler last playoffs? Or Kronwall blasting Martin Havlat into last year? Both player's where ejected and neither should have been. Both players may have deserved a good smack in the face though. Let the boys play, and quit complaining about good exciting hockey.

Posted by rocky 1 on November 29, 2009 at 05:47 PM

Tired of pussies who have never fought anyone except there sister voting here.Sutton loses a close fight and to say he won is the most bogus voting on this site ever! Must be a lot of braille keyboards out there!

Posted by jenelesaispas on November 03, 2009 at 10:51 PM

No way sutton won. Did he use his right hand once !!?? don't think so Jacques was way more fierce.

Posted by megatron34 on November 02, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Sutton did nothing but throw those little sweater shots. Win Jacques.

Posted by dorian on November 03, 2009 at 12:44 PM

Most boring fight I've ever seen. I'm almost officially done with hockey with all these fights being started after perfectly acceptable hits.

Posted by Hambone13 on November 03, 2009 at 01:07 AM

Sutton coming in for the hit almost skating backwards... Jacques shouldn't have gotten the instigator, both threw their gloves down at relatively the same time. Draw, no big shots landed.

Posted by big10drup8787 on November 03, 2009 at 12:30 PM

Again, I really don't see what the need is for JFJ to pick a fight. It was a clean hit, and it wasn't even that hard. It's not like Gilbert went flying anywhere. Clear draw.

Posted by chad420 on November 04, 2009 at 11:55 AM

draw...big guy like that should do better...get some skills

Posted by marinermoose38 on November 03, 2009 at 03:50 PM

NO punches LAND. Clear DRAW. And these announcers are complete morons!!

Posted by azjim on November 03, 2009 at 12:23 AM

What's next, dropping the gloves because the guy insults someone?

Posted by Oil Can Henry on November 03, 2009 at 12:58 AM

Most of their punches missed, but slight edge to Sutton.

Posted by piney on November 04, 2009 at 06:26 AM


Posted by goob on November 03, 2009 at 07:52 AM

sutton must wonder if he still plays a contact sport 2 games 2 hits 2 fights.......

Posted by Rex from MN on November 04, 2009 at 02:40 PM

I see on this page JFJ has been up and down from the farm team, so no doubt trying to earn a spot, so picking a fight is a way. Given how clean and how minimal contact the hit was, I'd say the instigator was warranted. Sutton doesn't seem like a cheap shotter to me, and he's willing to give a guy a fight usually. However, the fight challenge after clean hits trend is getting old...

Posted by DTanna on November 03, 2009 at 12:03 AM

The announcers are right..what's the world coming to when you can't hit Tom Gilbert without being challenged? Good for Sutton for making him pay.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on November 03, 2009 at 05:06 PM

STFU howie and jaffe, u 2 fu*k, it wasnt even a big hit....if someone would lay a big hit on a teammate u gotta fight the dude who did it cause u just cant let him keep doin it all day
