Armed with a ''body-visor'', and the game's worst hair... Sopel ''bravely'' crosschecks Janssen, after the latter almost smokes him with a clean hit. Eager must have seen the Rypien video, and decided that the ol' ''sorry, hand tape, can't fight, GM and all'' approach might be a good way to avoid fighting and pick spots.

Posted by blackngold on January 03, 2010 at 05:02 PM

Sopel is a fucking bitch haha. Keeps crosschecking Janssen in the back then covers up as soon as Janssen actually turns around.

Posted by Leafs2006 on January 03, 2010 at 02:06 PM

Eager showing his skills from the " Donald Brashear" fight club......HUggy bear wannabe?.....crap scrap...i cant even rate it.

Posted by Sasky001 on January 03, 2010 at 10:16 AM

Meager is a joke. Every time I see him I think of the severe beating that Gary Roberts gave him and I smile.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 03, 2010 at 09:11 PM

boy did that suck.........awful........draw.

Posted by C. Alter on January 10, 2010 at 04:58 PM

two tweerps too tired. Both need to learn how to play hockey, not rink fighting

Posted by crosscheck52 on January 03, 2010 at 09:36 AM

No winner. Eager looked like he was yapping about not fighting and Jackman was ineffectual. Nothing to impress. Attempt to injure?

Posted by tomdetroit on January 04, 2010 at 11:13 PM

Draw. What fight? Eager was hanging on for dear life, and Jackass didn't do anything. Hate both of them. And the one guy is right. Sopel is a wuss.

Posted by ScarbroSaint on January 03, 2010 at 03:28 PM

Iwould like to know what theOlder gal in the red shirt is yelling at them

Posted by mctuttle on January 03, 2010 at 08:04 PM

Jackman definitely gets in more shots but they are soft. The camera angle denies us the view of the shot Eager puts in to make him bleed. Maybe he clawed Jackman when grabbing his face.

Posted by JMiller29 on January 03, 2010 at 11:37 PM

I only read the 1st page so someone might have pointed it out earlier...but Eager had tape on his right hand, probably after the 1st fight, so he was trying to stay out of the fight and then only threw lefts. Tape on the hand is considered attempt to injure...someone got the same a couple days back, can't remember who.

Posted by metz87 on January 03, 2010 at 05:40 PM

Pretty crappy fight and bad calls as well here. Seabrook should have gotten a penetly and the attempt to injure call is bs.

Posted by fernben8 on January 12, 2010 at 11:19 PM

Eager didn't want to go..don't feel he was malingering -as he can go with the best of 'em. Jackman -looking for job security. Draw.

Posted by bruins rule on January 03, 2010 at 02:16 PM

not much going on in this fight.

Posted by bostonrs555 on January 03, 2010 at 09:44 AM

I'm figuring the match penalty is for a eye gouge or something in the orbital area..... This is how you finish a 6-2 game ladies... old time hockey rules!!!

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 03, 2010 at 06:07 PM

Draw. What a bitch Sopel is huh?

Posted by CPDheadstomp on December 11, 2010 at 11:13 PM

The fight was ok. I don't understand why people are saying Sopel is a bitch for cross-checking Janssen. Janssen took a run at a player who didn't have the puck.

Posted by amerks25 on January 02, 2010 at 11:24 PM

Jackman is somewhat like a punching bag, but is always there for his teammates.

Posted by MSUfaninMO on January 03, 2010 at 08:00 AM

I have to give Jackman the "W" here because he is the only one of the two fighters that looks interested in the fight. Jackman is the only one throwing punches between the two

Posted by Bassen28 on January 03, 2010 at 10:51 AM

Eager quit being a p*ssy and drop the gloves with Cam if your such a tough guy...Almost everyone of these fights started after a clean hit by the Blues...Blackhawks suck

Posted by rleggs00 on January 03, 2010 at 02:48 PM

If Eager is gonna "pick his spots" he needs to realize others are gonna come after him. He has to show up when called upon instead of crying to the official. Besides, the Blues didnt show him the door for a gutless act (intent to injure), the REF. did. You know, the NEUTRAL party on the ice!!

Posted by Bullybeatdown on January 03, 2010 at 05:23 AM

Boy, Eager Sucks!! Win that asswipe Jackmen.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on January 03, 2010 at 04:10 AM

Eager didnt even want to go. Jackman didnt do much but atleast he tried and landed a couple baby punches. I'll give him the win due to control and aggression,.

Posted by kingpintoo on January 03, 2010 at 12:43 PM

the attempt to injure was piss ant Eager's use of equipment to cut Jackman's face. Look at Eager's arm scraping his face. used edge of protective gear to cut, what a P O S.

Posted by bluesrule08 on January 03, 2010 at 03:54 PM

so did eager like claw at jackman or something?? i dont know how he got the attempt to injure penalty cuz he wasnt wearing tape or anything so i dont know.

Posted by st. bernard on January 03, 2010 at 01:46 PM

jackman threw all the punches the few there were. eager sratched like a a grade school girl.

Posted by bboyer on January 03, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Eager sucks--Landed nothing-- how does he get a single vote--Jackman hits him with two good uppercuts at the end while Eager shows no desire to do anything

Posted by usmcaaron on January 03, 2010 at 05:37 PM

"Chicago forward Ben Eager was given a match penalty for fighting with tape on his hand. Word is he told Barret Jackman he didn’t want to fight because he didn’t want to receive match penalty due to the tape on his hand. When Jackman let him go he suckered the Blues D-man in the face which resulted in a few stitches. Eager continued to run his mouth chirping the Blues bench as he skated off the ice." - per Andy Strickland. What a freakin p***y. That fits right in with his MO as well as the rest of Chicago's MO. They all love the cheap shots and sucker punches, but only their pre-pubescent captain has the nuts to actually stand up for himself. And Jackman STILL got the W. Pathetic.

Posted by EDDUBBS on January 03, 2010 at 03:45 AM

crap Eager enjoys beating any Jackoff. Tim and Barrett are both punching bags...

Posted by HaWKeYToWNusa on January 03, 2010 at 03:11 PM

Eager should put jackman in timeout for looking like a kid throwing a temper-tantrum at the local walmart. Eager made jackie bleed without throwing a punch.in the meantime sopel makes janssen look like a clown by putting him on the ice and cross checking him in the back of the neck, just wish the stick was a machete so he could have done some real damage to that doucher!hawks made lots of huge CLEAN hits while they tore down the blues net! The blues are dirty bums.

Posted by Active Stick on January 03, 2010 at 11:15 AM

Blah, ignore my earlier post. Didn't see the "additional video" towards the bottom of this page. Anyway, watch that one instead. You actually see the start of the fight instead of a close-up of Sopels face.

Posted by hal29 on January 03, 2010 at 12:18 PM

looks like jackman gives the eye gauge he had the hands up in eager's eyes and eager cut open jackman...win eager...what teammate was jackman defending he was being cheap and big pu$$y move by janssen

Posted by tville23 on January 03, 2010 at 01:45 AM

What is wetstick watching? Jackman was bloodied and it looked like Eager didn't want to continue sticking him. He was asking the linesmen to step in before it was "lights out" for the St. Loser punching bag.

Posted by CBH2388 on March 24, 2010 at 04:27 PM

How did Eager get an attempt to injure? they were hugging the whole time ..wtf?

Posted by mr hockey on January 06, 2010 at 11:06 PM

these st Louis announcers suck eager didn't want to fight because his hands had to be tapped from an earlier ass whupping on crombeam but one of the biggest pussy's in the league jackoffman jumped him from behind st Louis goons last place for you

Posted by detroitsucks11 on January 03, 2010 at 12:49 AM

Crap fight. Edge Eager

Posted by Blackhawk16 on January 03, 2010 at 10:32 PM

You Blues fans can just sit back and enjoy the view from the bottom of the toilet while the Hawks crap all over you...enjoy it....you'll be down there for a long long time.

Posted by roaddogg02316 on January 03, 2010 at 08:54 AM

And what was the attempt to injure here?

Posted by saxonthebeach on January 09, 2010 at 05:32 PM

Eager turtles and hugs the whole time, then finds his balls once the linesmen have already separated them. Big Man.

Posted by LordKOTL on January 04, 2010 at 12:42 PM

Again, a non-fight. Eager with the match for having a band-aid on the tip of his finger--hence the non-suspension ruling by the NHL and him playing against the Ducks.

Posted by dorian on January 05, 2010 at 08:15 AM

Janssen is a piece of crap. Can't even finish a highly dubious check. Eager and Jackman are useless. I recall Hordichuck breaking Jackman's jaw a few years ago.

Posted by irishpunk39 on January 03, 2010 at 12:44 PM

janssens is a puss trying to drop the gloves with sopel,jackman is a puss trying to take runs at kaner,bunch of gutless wonders.da blues suck,they try to be rough with the hawks,they lose,try to play hockey with the hawks,they lose,end result,they lose!!!!!!!!!!!!hawks in 1st.place..

Posted by azjim on January 04, 2010 at 03:45 AM

another draw

Posted by chad420 on January 03, 2010 at 04:24 PM

looks drawish boys

Posted by tiburon4 on January 04, 2010 at 02:50 AM

what penalty is that? Attempt to injure? Not much fight action, yawn.

Posted by CubMark88 on January 18, 2010 at 04:09 PM

sopel went after Jansenn after Jannsenn tried to elbow him in the face, yes the crosschecking was uncalled for, I guess when you can't beat a team playing hockey you might as well try to beat them with physical play, both clean hits (which they did have) and cheap shots (plenty of them too) and I'm sure I'm biased being from chicago but Barret Jackman has proven to be the dirtiest player in hockey again and again

Posted by wetstick on January 02, 2010 at 11:49 PM

back when I played hockey this was called a scrum and not a fight, what is this league turning into?

Posted by claire alexande on January 03, 2010 at 06:03 PM

Eager mistakes Jackman for Kevin Bieksa and goes in anticipating another easy win, only to be surprised and take the loss in a bit of a yawner.

Posted by Richterfan on January 03, 2010 at 11:17 AM

Jackman gets two sneaky uppercuts in at the end for the win. This game was the closest we've seen to an old "Black and Blue Norris" tilt in years!! The NHL would sell out every game if there were more like these with true emotion and passion.

Posted by oakes119 on January 03, 2010 at 12:57 PM

the hawks obviously dont suck. so stop saying it. the blues arent even averaging a point a game, pathetic.

Posted by SABREHATRED on January 03, 2010 at 11:08 AM

Fight was as cruddy as any buffalo sabre panties!!!

Posted by HawksandGrimson on January 03, 2010 at 10:06 AM

It looks like it was a gouge from the reaction of Jackman. I think Eager was complaining that he may have been gouged by Jackman during the fight. Bottom line, it was a hug fest.

Posted by Muscles on January 05, 2010 at 09:17 PM

scrum, not a fight.
