chocolate thunder with a slight edge over the Hebrew hammer

draw. No winner here, not sure how others viewed Wayne as the winner. He may have swung more but that's it.

Posted by staceyb on December 12, 2010 at 06:19 AM

They both looked like runaway windmills.

Posted by cigaros on December 15, 2010 at 08:01 PM

I don't see a victory here. Both wanted to go at it but couldn't break free. Inexperience reigned here.

Posted by jbaker3924 on December 13, 2010 at 09:15 AM

Clear Draw.

Posted by DARCY T on December 19, 2010 at 01:20 PM

simmond's style is pretty wild and gets him win sometimes but not this time.a lot of his punches missed the target.draw in pretty entertaining scrap.gave it 7

Posted by whatthemoon1 on January 02, 2011 at 05:59 PM

both got some punches in, no real winner. Draw

Posted by billgoldberg14 on December 14, 2010 at 09:45 AM

"This is a barroom brawl not a hockey fight". I think that sums it up just fine. Simmonds barely wins because i think he landed the only punch despite about 30 punches thrown in that fight.

Posted by ENFORCER 24 on December 12, 2010 at 09:57 AM

Nystrom, bar room brawl - who'd have thought it? Simmonds with the W.

Posted by powerhitter22 on December 13, 2010 at 04:15 PM

did nystrom not take his helmet off cause he's bald or cause hes a douche?

Posted by FotiuNystrom on December 13, 2010 at 08:32 AM

With all due respect to the great Bob Nystrom, I believe Mrs. Nystrom may have cheated with a spastic bald mailman.

Posted by MyKneeGrow17 on December 12, 2010 at 10:57 AM

if you're gonna be an announcer in this league, you might wanna learn the names of the players toolbag! Simmons wins!

Posted by fattymcdaddy on December 14, 2010 at 08:16 AM

God dammit these announcers get worse every year. What a bunch of homers.

Posted by mightyquin on December 14, 2010 at 08:05 PM

does anyone on minnesooota wild have any class?, 'cause nystrom doesn't and staubitz doesn't

Posted by Big_Goon on December 12, 2010 at 12:01 PM

I agree with b.t.wilson. Regardless of the idiot announcers it was an entertaining fight. Not your typical hockey fight, but Simmonds was swinging for the fences. Win Simmonds.

Posted by mbingaman on December 18, 2010 at 08:21 PM

Otherwise might've scored a draw, but Simmonds gets the win because that punk Nystrom doesn't take off his helmet too. What a loser.

Posted by tovar on December 13, 2010 at 02:11 AM

take off the fckin helmet,nystrom!!!!!!!!!

Posted by bostonrs555 on December 12, 2010 at 10:01 AM

Poor Eric Nystrom, does anyone have hair in that family?!?!?!?!? Even his sister is bald!!!!! Edge to SImmonds

Posted by dmac1983 on December 16, 2010 at 09:59 AM

Behn Wilson - Eric is Bob's son. I guess the apple does fall far from the tree, in this case, at least.

Posted by tootoo07 on December 12, 2010 at 10:16 AM

Don't be a Bitch Nystrom drop your hat.

Posted by Willy WILL on December 16, 2010 at 07:53 PM

Close fight win to Simmons... Some real haymakers thrown... nothing damaging landed on either end!

Posted by Langway on December 15, 2010 at 04:27 PM

Simmons throwing some huge haymakers that a more savvy fighter would have taken advantage of and beat his ass for. However, he landed more so he wins.

Posted by turk1 on December 14, 2010 at 09:51 PM

wild swinging nothing much landed. Simmonds got in the better punches. Win Simmonds

Posted by dapwas20 on December 14, 2010 at 04:50 PM

Simmonds proves his prowess, now he can pick a real fighter.

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 19, 2016 at 08:59 PM

Win Simmonds.

Posted by slshbleed on December 12, 2010 at 01:00 PM

Simmonds is tall but very thin for the NHL. He can really fight for a guy that size. I think he is swinging for the fences because Nystrom doesn't drop the lid. If you got one guy with a visor and one without, what is code? Simmonds lands more, but I think he lost his cool and could have done better had he not been trying land a monster shot. He gets Nystrom lid off early in the fight as it is. I don't see this as a draw at all Simmonds lands and Nystrom doesn't for the most part.

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 12, 2010 at 10:24 PM

Edge Simmonds, but great overall energy, Based on his karmic implosion, I'm guessing that this Nystrom, is no relation to the legendary Bob Nystrom. And not just because of the hair, or lack of it... but mainly because of that punk-a$$ move with the helmet to start things off. Sorry Eric, one more of those, and you'll be entering Carcillo, Avery, Cooke, Lapierre territory.

Posted by LA KING FANATIC on December 13, 2010 at 11:13 AM

Nystrom should have dropped the lid...period. He is chicken sh%$ for not doing it. Love that the lid came off early anyway, Simmonds definitely is a tough middle weight and Nystrom got outpunched, a clear win for Simmonds and Nystrom I think was suprised that Simmonds was tagging him, he bit off more than he could chew.

Posted by Jellyczar on December 12, 2010 at 07:06 AM

Quite the swingfest and hitting a lot of air. Nystrom didn't drop his lid as Simmonds did (with the visor) , Nystrom did not want to show everyone he is bald. Simmonds wins.

Posted by No Name on December 12, 2010 at 03:46 PM

The Kings have some very good fighters on their team. This isn't Simmonds typical style. Simmonds seemed grumpy about Nystrom not taking his helmet off and wanted blood. Mostly glancing blows. Wayne landed the only real connector. Advantage Simmonds in a relatively close one. Nystrom comes off like a pansy with the helmet trick.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 12, 2010 at 11:45 AM

looked like a couple wild monkeys swinging there arms. (Nystoms white so its only half racist). edge Simmonds

Posted by OGShocker on December 14, 2010 at 02:11 PM

Simmons!!!!! Wayne is good "kid". Nystrom musta made a comment about Simmons mom...

Posted by fernben8 on December 13, 2010 at 11:46 AM

Great energy but sorry, can't help but laugh...great shadow-box drill by these two. Nystrom should have lost the lid from the start. Edge Simmonds...

Posted by DalStars29 on December 13, 2010 at 01:46 PM

I will give the win to Simmonds. Good to see a player with a visor drop the helmet. Good to see any player drop the helmet, but especially a one with a visor. Kind of a punk move on Nystrom to not drop the helmet also. Wild windmill swings but alot of energy.....way better then watching a hug fest.

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on December 12, 2010 at 10:20 PM

I think it was fun to watch. Not much connecting but they were sure trying hard. I give Wayne the edge but neither guy will have a headache in the morning.

Posted by joeye4 on December 13, 2010 at 08:13 AM

Clear win for Simmons. Interesting that Nystrom did not take off his helmet.

Posted by billy jack on December 12, 2010 at 04:08 PM

nystrom should of lost the lid when simmonds removed his.none the less simmonds won.

Posted by b.t.wilson on December 12, 2010 at 02:39 AM

i'm sorry, i really am, but i loved this fight, i smiled the whole time. it had something to do with the D-bag announcers. simmons drops the bucket and lands the only couple of punches, so the win goes to him. i wish he could've fired a puck slapshot-style up into the box where the idiots were yakking.

"Simmonds missed a big one" he missed the grab you moron. How could someone who once called Derek Boogaard's fights know so little about fights?

Posted by rocky 1 on December 14, 2010 at 11:42 PM

Simmonds gets my vote in this tilt!

Posted by wrburket on December 14, 2010 at 11:48 AM

GOOD fight. Simmonds ftw.

Posted by straightup on December 12, 2010 at 02:59 PM

I don't know how anyone can call that anything but a draw. You don't score points for punches that don't land.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on December 12, 2010 at 09:47 AM

Wasn't expecting this matchup. Pretty good fight, though there was a lot of slipping and missing.

Simmonds wins this sloppy fight.

Posted by Dave_42 on December 12, 2010 at 02:01 AM

Nystrom wants to fight Simmons wants to box... wtf.. Stupid... but entertaining fight I thought! I like seeing Simmonds fight! Nice dropping the lid as well! Voted Simmonds ... 6... kind of close.

Posted by bigd071 on December 16, 2010 at 12:48 PM

As long as he has a chance, Simmonds takes the helmet off before a fight. He did it a few nights before this against Calgary when him and Sarach wanted to go at it... but the linesmen stepped in. Earlier in the year it appeared he actually let Andrew Alberts remove his helmet for him while they were wrapped up. Anyway... alot of punches thrown. Not many landed. Seems like Simmonds was more active... and landed the only punches.

Posted by chad420 on December 13, 2010 at 09:35 PM

win Wayno

Posted by tim daddy on December 12, 2010 at 04:55 PM

cue the circus music, edge simmonds

Win goes to "Wild" Wayne !

Posted by atflyers on February 09, 2012 at 04:41 PM

Simmonds might be my favorite fighter in the NHL.

Posted by Sather-Satan on December 12, 2010 at 11:50 AM

Nystrom had an hour to ditch the lid. Dude, what were you thinking?

Posted by barnibizer on December 16, 2010 at 11:37 AM

Some of the so called "fight fans" on this sight have no clue. Just because these 2 aren't big names people assume they can't fight. I have been impressed with Simmonds and he showed some good fight here swinging like a mad man. Not saying either are classy, not saying they are belt contenders, but come on, thats at least a 7 score was 8. A fight is a fight, if Boogaard isn't involved it can still be good. Grow up

Posted by briaro2050 on December 12, 2010 at 08:47 PM

Simmons was too fast and strong...clear winner, very good fight
