i cant give props to Dowell for holding up on Ott. Ott deserves to be pummeled while down. Draw

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 08, 2010 at 11:04 PM

Spirited, claustrophobic draw that stayed in close quarters, and never really opened up. Huge respect points to Dowell, for not tuning Ott while he was prone, and out. And ,,, (imagine!) ...props to Ott, (wow, that didn't exactly roll of off the tongue) ,,,for the uncharacteristically classy ''thank-you-tap'' at the end.

A fight between two guys who show a lot of respect for each other. Nice to see. A draw.

Posted by Juha82 on December 09, 2010 at 03:42 PM

Now that was a nice fight to watch with the Marquis of Queensbury rules.

Posted by fernben8 on December 09, 2010 at 02:22 PM

Wow ! I'm impressed... What a great show of class by both fighters ! A good fight too...a lot of punches thrown. Going with a Draw. Again,nice show of respect towards each other...

Posted by BIGJAKEMAN on December 09, 2010 at 12:50 PM

I like how Ott patted him on the head after the fight was over. A show of respect I think for Dowell following the code and letting Ott get up to continue fighting. Pretty cool.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on December 09, 2010 at 12:46 AM

meh draw, its was good tho

Posted by Radar4 on December 10, 2010 at 12:45 PM

Dowell gets bonus pts for respecting the code.

Posted by Clark75 on December 10, 2010 at 01:08 AM

Eric Godard could learn something from Dowell. Respect goes a long way.

Posted by DARCY T on December 17, 2010 at 06:17 AM

wow,ott landed some bomb lefts.i thought he was gonna break dowell's face.dowell didnt land much (if anything) but he could have while ott was down.and out of respect for what he did i call it draw...gave it 8

Posted by redwingsman on December 08, 2010 at 09:49 PM

that was a good fight

Posted by Les_Habitants on December 08, 2010 at 09:59 PM

Dowell et Ott both avec plus d'honneur. Grand bataille!

Posted by mandela946 on December 09, 2010 at 07:45 AM

classy move on Dowell's part when Ott went down !! ok scrap !!!

Posted by evolutionrules on December 08, 2010 at 09:59 PM

god i hate ott but he won. would ott have hit dowell when he was down? absolutely. good for dowell for having way more class then ott.

Posted by bruins rule on December 08, 2010 at 11:11 PM

ott gets the win in this fight.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on December 09, 2010 at 02:33 AM

ott.......but barely.

Posted by mctuttle on December 13, 2010 at 10:58 PM

The only fist to face contact came from Ott on Dowell. Mad props to Dowell for being a sportsman and to Ott for appreciating it. This fight is a flagship clip for how fighting in the NHL is a sport, not barbaric as ignoramuses sensationally paint it.

Posted by done on December 11, 2010 at 12:14 PM

edge to Ott! very close fight but Ott landed more. Hats off to Dowell for class.

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on December 09, 2010 at 12:36 AM

Ott seemed to get the better of Dowell in punches, but went down.

Posted by b.t.wilson on December 08, 2010 at 10:23 PM

ott's two lefts tip the scales in my opinion, but a nice energetic scrap by both. dowell proves himself an ultimate hockey player's hockey player with, even after eating about ten ott knuckles, still doesn't even think of throwing a punch until ott is back up on his feet. ott says, thanks, friend. if everyone showed that respect, well, i guess things would be different is all... nice to see blackhawks girls enjoy fights more than penguins girls. ott and 6.

Posted by sedinfan on December 08, 2010 at 10:58 PM

Dowell shows class, follows the code and Ott appreciates it. How often do you see OTT show any class like he did with the helmet tap at the end as he knew Dowell could have put him to sleep when he was down.

Posted by 5 holes on December 08, 2010 at 11:53 PM

Entertaining scrap! edge Dowell.

Posted by Aldous on December 08, 2010 at 10:17 PM

You guys just hate Ott cause he's not YOUR asshole, lol. Of course Avery was a Star and our asshole and I still didn't much like'em, but that's his job...anyways...I thought it was a good quick fight, with Ott just barely tipping the scales, but I hand it to Dowell for letting Ott get back up and it was nice to see Otter give him a pat on the helmet as to say, "good job mate."

Posted by shawn Forrest on December 10, 2010 at 12:03 PM

Very, Very Classy!! nice job

Posted by Big_Goon on December 10, 2010 at 03:53 PM

Good job by Dowell honoring the code. Win Dowell in a so so fight.

Posted by slavv on December 09, 2010 at 07:41 PM

Very sloppy, but always good when Ott gets worked. Dowell had control throughout this one...

Posted by dapwas20 on January 05, 2011 at 10:57 PM

Ott started this one well but once Dowell let him off the hook and then landed a couple Ott went for the tie up. Advantage to Dowell.

Posted by SteadyAsSheGoes on December 09, 2010 at 10:40 AM

Pretty much a solid draw in terms of anything that landed, but gotta give it to Dowell since he had the control.

Posted by HaWKeYToWNusa on December 08, 2010 at 10:42 PM

Give it a draw. Why? Because Ott is a prick and would have pounded anyone who fell to the ice!

Posted by Double Nickels on December 12, 2010 at 08:44 PM

Just watch the Godard-Rosehill fight before I saw's nice to see there is still respect in the profession.

Posted by Jordybats99 on January 01, 2016 at 12:55 PM

Give The Edge To Dowell Could have clocked Ott there. Good respect shown.

Posted by tville23 on December 08, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Agree with another post about the video feed. The Hawks cameras picked this up in better fashion, and Dowell was clearly ahead prior to the Ott tumble. Decision to Dowell, not only for the solid sportsmanship, but because he had the upper hand in the tilt.

Posted by CPDheadstomp on December 11, 2010 at 10:50 PM

Nice job Dowell. This fight show how classy NHL players can be, even in a fight.

Posted by laan0603 on December 09, 2010 at 08:09 AM

Dowell is definitely a stand up guy.

Posted by hockeyherman on December 09, 2010 at 09:09 AM

Good spirted draw! Lots thrown but hardly any landed!

Posted by claire alexande on December 09, 2010 at 01:13 PM

Ott lands zilch so don't see how people can score it win for him. Dowell lands zilch as well so draw. Chivalry on a POS like Ott is truly wasted.

Posted by tim daddy on December 09, 2010 at 09:37 AM

wow! steve ott takes on another ledgendary tough guy, draw

Posted by Oil Can Henry on December 09, 2010 at 12:28 AM

Slight edge to Ott,........never wait for the other guy to get-up.

Posted by travist on December 08, 2010 at 10:48 PM

solid fight but a rating of over 6?? not that with the W.

Posted by ccmathelete on December 09, 2010 at 12:37 AM

Dowell shows class with letting Ott get up, but that class cost him the win. Props to both for keeping the fight classy.

Posted by bustsomechops on December 08, 2010 at 10:30 PM

Ott with the win, but Dowell shows he's a class act by not hitting Ott when he's down. Good scrap.

Posted by perezj on December 09, 2010 at 08:00 AM


Posted by mcsorley666 on December 08, 2010 at 11:50 PM

Why give a cheap-shot artist like Ott the respect to get up during a fight? It is mind-boggling. He is no better than Avery of Ovechkin in terms of sportsmanship.

Posted by Redzilla on December 09, 2010 at 05:12 PM

Impressed with the class act on both ends

Posted by chad420 on December 09, 2010 at 05:26 PM

win Jake the Snake for landing better shots in the begining...decent bout..especially for Snot..even though that did look like an Mr Fuji eyeguage

Posted by LaniPani on December 08, 2010 at 11:18 PM

The kid's a class act with a lion's heart. Jake Dowell, you're a winner!

Posted by Nesquik on December 09, 2010 at 12:06 AM

Class act by Dowell.

Posted by Thunderfan32 on December 09, 2010 at 12:10 PM

Great move by Dowell. Letting him up, classy move.

Posted by hawksfan81 on December 08, 2010 at 11:19 PM

The Dallas feed doesn't do Dowell justice. The Chicago feed clearly shows Dowell making Ott eat a few lefts at the beginning of the fight. So, even punches and a close fight, but I gotta go with Dowell for not hitting Ott while he was down.
