On behalf of FWVU (Fighting Without Visors Union), it's a draw. Beauchemin, take that f***ing visor off nex time...the guy had plenty of time to take it off.
I have never complained about a player leaving the visor on before. But this is different. This was not a 'heat of the moment' fight where players dont have the time to take the helmet off before punches are thrown. Francois had more than enough time to take the helmet off. And as a matter of fact, he even had Olli backing up before punches were thrown. Like many people in this forum, I am scoring this a Draw in protest. In fairness, Francois Beauchemin has displayed a certain level of honor in past fights, that is why it is shocking to me to see him display such a dramatic lack of it here, especially against a guy that never fights.
Draw Period! Beauchemin beats Jokinen NOW THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF LEAFS and their fans are a joke in them. ( selves) Lose the visor pu$$y!
not a fight, beauchemin really really really should've losed the lid. not like he didn't have time. maybe i am being lame for this, but i'm calling it a draw, only since beauchemin should have shown some class, i mean come on, its olli jokinen for god's sake.
Props to Jokinen for trying, big thumbs down to Doucheamin for leaving the visor on.
They both should have dropped the lids, but instead Beauchemin dropped Jokinen.
Beauchemin take off your lid you pussy. Way to beat up a euro
Beauchemin est maird. Les Leafs ont maird.
What the fuck was this?!?!
This was Beau's fight!
Beauchemin is not honorable, but Jokinen is crazy. Loved Iggy skating by and yelling to Jokinen that Beauch is a lefty. Funny good stuff.
Beauchemin with the win...but it's tainted because he's a pussy with a visor.
better hit, lousy fight. Jokinen ate an uppercut and turtled.
Yeah I agree Beauchemin should have took off his helmet. He lost a lot of points with me for squaring off like that and still keeping on his visor. Crap fight, Win Beauchemin gave it a 2
Courageous Jokinen but Beauchemin was not correct. We don't keep the visor ....
Beauchemin gets to flatten two Flames in one play, basically. It was a great, clean, legal bodycheck - part of the game. Olli compounds things by trying to fight. Olli should never fight again - he has no idea what he is doing. I don't think it helps your team win to run head first into machinegun fire. The way to retaliate against hard bodychecks is to GIVE hard bodychecks...not have your worst fighter challenge the guy. Dumb.Dumb.Dumb.
Beauchemin with the win but good to see Olli sticking up for a teammate
Olli isn't exactly the name you think of when you here the word fight!!!! Joke takes the lame way out when he realizes his flamer buddies won't be jumping in anytime soon.. W to Queen Bee over on drums
If the Flames haters can park their bias for just a second, you have to admit that any Euro non-fighter like Olli than steps in to defend a hit against and knarly scrapper like Beauchemin deserves some credit. The fact that Beauche left his visor on obviously shows a lack of class, particularly given his opponent was Jokinen. Beauche for the one hit win but Olli for the big cohones runner up prize. Funny how Iggy was circling and all like "Olli, WTF are you doing".
good job for jokinen to stick up for his teammate, but i've seen better fights. easy beauchemin win
what was Jokinen thinking? props to him for standing for his player but Beauchemin is not the guy you want to drop them with. I have watched Beauchemin fight since he started with the Ducks and although he doesnt fight much I have never seen him lose one and all of his fights end the same way very decisive wins
Beauchemin wins, but he had PLENTY of time to lose the helmet and visor.
it's too bad beauch didn't have enough timeto take his lid off...what a doosh.
Olli gets the chump stamp under his eye.... Stick to fancy moves and pirouettes.... W to Francis
God I hate the Flamers, and especially Jokinen. That was hilarious how that Finnish piece of shit went down immediately.
Didnt Jokinen see Beauchemin cave Kopecky's face in last year? Keep your lid on - safety first.
No contest. Beach wins it by a mile. Why take his helmet off if he was just going to win in 5 seconds anyways?
Too funny. Joke- in- in, tries to stick up for a teamate and then turtles like a little bitch after getting hit once. He had to fight though, because the Flamers captain surveyed the situation and was too scared to fight Beauchemin himself, probably knowing that it would be the same result from when Francois kicked the hell out of Iginla a couple of years back. I would consider that the epitome of a spot picker. I'm glad that Francois didn't lose the lid as it's good to see the Flamers get some of their own medicine for a change. Flamers lose all 3 fights, which isn't exactly surprising news but they can at least beat Toronto on the scoreboard but so does everybody. And really who cares about the scoreboard as this is a fight site after all. Claire, it's pretty sad/sick that you wake up in the morning having had another wet dream because you fell asleep with your Flamers homer glasses on. Once again, your total lack of objectivity causes you to lose all credibility. Not to mention the fact that you can't even get your facts straight. You might like to call Bieksa a spot picker(again your credibility is non existent) but the guy doesn't and never has(other than in college or in the minors where it's mandatory) ever worn a visor in the NHL. So what exactly the fuck are you talking about. Actually forget it, someody as blind and judgement clouded as you need not answer that because once again facts and objectivity are not part of your vocabulary. As for Iginla, yeah I'm sure. That's why,as capain, he was so anxious to jump in there for Oli "The Turtle" Joke - in -in. Rght!!! Claire, Oh, here comes the third man in excuse. They weren't engaged, so why would he have gotten a 3rd man in penalty? They squared off for a good 10 seconds and you're trying to tell me that Iginla didn't have time to skate in there to protect his teamate and prevent him from embarrassingly getting his ass kicked? Where was he in the 4th row buying popcorn? There was no 3rd man in penalty to be had and even if there was, they were playing the fucking Leafs. If they can't beat them without Iginla then they have more problems than just Olli being a girl. Claire, I'm glad that you were finally able to admit a wrong and I also thank you for the compliment. It means so very much to me that it's hard to put into words. Also, I apologize to the other posters on here as per my message in the Mair/Prust fight log.
Jokinen you suck!!!!!
nothing much going on in this fight.
Minus to Beauchemin for the sissy sheild, and plus to Jokinen for actually going, but Beauchemin still wins
even jokinen lost that , im glad that jokinen is starting more often these fights !
Great hit, and good response by Jokinen...despite not being ready... but the ol' jump, clutch and hope manouver rarely works. Win ''good-road''.
This isnt a sportsmanship site. You dont call draws because he didnt take off his helmet/visor. Those of you who voted a draw should find another site. Its a fight and Beauchemin won - plain and simply. and yes he should of taken the helmet off, cheap that he didnt but he won the fight regardless.
Nice hit. Credit for Olli sticking up for his teammate (Red Wings European players dont do this). Enjoy the stitches. W Beauchemin
Beauchemin with the easy win. Somethibng might not be right in this world. A Finn fights in this fight, a Swede had a knockout at UFC 105. Man, I would never think this could happen!
It's doesn't matter if Beauchemin takes is visor of or not ,Jokinen did not even have time to throw a punch.
beauchy for the win
Beauchemin with the win here. For all those idiots out there saying he should have takin his bucket off, think about it. He didn't go out there looking for a fight, he went out there and put some guy through the ice. With all the injuries and a death from hitting your head on the ice, why would he take his helmet off??? Figure it out!!
Geat hit by Beauch, and he gets the win.
Much smaller Canadian destroys larger Finn as usual
i couldn't agree more with BT wilson. Jokenen finally dropped his gloves and beachboy was scared to take off the visor. f'n sad
Obvious win for Beauchemin ... but I'm calling it a draw due to the worst example of refusing to loose the visor I've ever seen. It's Olli Jokinen not Brock Lesnar.
That was a fight???
Have to score this a draw as Beauchemin does his best Bieksa (spot-picking, visor on) and Burrows (scratching) imitations. dbhof--your neurotic fear of the flames is getting quite flagrant; iginla has learned much since the playoff scrap about fighting lefties and would likely do well against beauchemin. _____ cher dave ok, so iginla should have gone for third man in after Olli, against all logic, drops them with Beauchemin. if it makes you feel better about yourself, yes, my snide visor comment should have been attached to Burrows, not Bieksa. I admit that it's very difficult to bring myself to challenge your opinions (you're the most credible, and unbiased, poster on this site, apparently).
pathetic by beauchemin he's fighting jokinen and still refuses to lose his visor
First off nice clean hit. Second not doing much on the score sheet why not fight. Ya it's Olli but fuck if Semin fights anyone will fight. But holy shit Franis you could tell first off Olli knew he bit off more than he could chew, but really you had like 20 sec to lose the lid. Puzzy Puzzy Puzzy DRAW FOR THAT ACT OF BEING A VAGINA Side note: I love Olli's face when he realizes he dropped the gloves and has to fight!
I'm calling it a draw on the principle of Beauch not flipping the visor lid. Surprising from him.
Yeah fighting a swed almost begs take the helmet off come on francois
cmon oli...clean hit...then you ask 2 fight & then you puss....stick 2 scoring the occasional goal...
That was awful - Jokinen had the right idea, skating backwards,....just, shoulda' kept going.
either olli has major balls, or he didn't check the jersey number first.
If one guy gives up. the other one wins. announcer are homers
I'm glad Beauchemin left his helmet on, It was a clean hit. Why should he risk getting eye gouged or scratched by Olli the pussy cat, when he did nothing wrong.
Beauchemin wins the fight and douche of the week award. Some of you Beauchemin defenders are a close second.
Win Beauchemin but he loses street cred for not dumping the lid.
Jokinen had no chance against the Frenchie!
Oli should not have done that.
Joke-in-in's just that..... a joke! He picks a fight with the much bigger and tougher Beauchemin, and then pulls a turtle act! Of course Iginla wouldn't go after Beauchemin either since he'd get knocked the F out like he did a couple years back eh? Beauchemin with the clear win, the 3rd of 3 the Lames lose on the night!!
Nice blood on Jokinens face. Flames lost all 3 fights.
Keep the gloves on next time Olli...
