Carkner Versus Glass - Beatdown of the year
 
Probably the worst beating we'll see all season long. Poor Tanner. Good for him to step up to Carkner, though.



damn.

Worse than the Orr beatdown on Carkner...I'm surprised Glass wasn't seriously injured.

shibster 02-04-2010 09:43 PM

Lots of shots landed by Carkner, but his personal beatdown of the year has to go to Orr, ruined his face on that one.

?


The Orr-Carkner fight was close until the very end, this just wasn't ever close.

Besides, Carkner won round 2 by just as much :p:

The fight was close until the end, and as I stated above, Carkner took it to Orr in round two.

Carkner V Glass is about 10x bigger of a beatdown.

I guess I'm just thinking of beatdown from the perspective of damage done. More damage in the Orr fight.

That's true

When I read the thread title I thought Carkner punched the Plexiglass or something.

Ottawa fans must be happy with Carkner, 24 fights for 500K when Laraque had 4 for 1.5M.

SpezDispenser 02-04-2010 10:13 PM

lol Carkner is just an absolute beast.

LOL seriously?

Orr knocked Carkner down, no damage done, Orr overpowered him and won the 1st fight, Carkner sat 5 and came back. Second fight almost the same except Carkner came out and demolised Orr's face and Orr had to leave the game.

Agreed.

Orr didn't fight for over a motnh after that one. :laugh:

CaptBrannigan 02-04-2010 11:03 PM

I think Scott from Minnesota tuning that Canucks guy was a tiny bit more brutal. Either way, damn.

brayden11 02-04-2010 11:17 PM

he definitely lost but he's not a enforcer like Carkner is

shibster 02-04-2010 11:37 PM

Ehh, Carkner is the more talented/useful player, no doubt.

LaurentHou* 02-05-2010 12:45 AM

John Scott vs Picard

canucksfan 02-05-2010 09:53 AM

Carkner is awesome because he can fight with the best of them and he can play hockey.

Pog Form 02-05-2010 10:39 AM

Ouch, filled him in pretty good.

Mr. Canucklehead 02-05-2010 10:50 AM

From a Canuck POV, that one was nowhere near as hard to watch as John Scott of Minnesota destroying Alexandre Bolduc.

Where was Hordi? Was he not dressed for this game? If so that is his job to challenge Carkner, no need for Glass to be doing that is Hordi is in the lineup

I'm not sure if Carkner obliges Hordichuk in this situation, though. Glass was looking to make some noise, because he wants to win a roster spot. Hordichuk has been around for a while, Ottawa at that point had all the momentum, and Carkner is just a much more useful player. The fight seemed like more of a favour to Glass than anything else, despite the outcome.

The Four Seven 02-05-2010 12:25 PM

I didn't even know who he was before I picked him up on my fantasy team for some much-needed PIMs, and now I'm a fan. He's been really good for me, but even better for the Sens.

The Littlest Hobo 02-05-2010 12:36 PM

I liked the shot of Glass in the box later with the ice on his face. It almost looked like he was crying. Poor little guy.

JerkChicken 02-05-2010 12:58 PM

First off, I like Glass's heart & all...and his willingness to 'take one for the team', but he should freakin' realize who he's going up against. If Carkner had laid out a Sedin or something and you have to respond - that's one thing. But in this case - Glass was a bit foolish to try & spark his team by taking on Carker. He stepped up too many weight classes in that one, and it showed.

Not sure why Hordichuk was dressed against the Canadiens the other night - who lack any real tough guys - but NOT against Ottawa who have both Carkner & Neil to contend with. Odd choice by Vigneault.

As for 'Beatdown of the year' - uhhh, no. I totally disagree. Ya, he got tuned pretty good - but it wasn't even the biggest beatdown a Canuck has taken this year.

For that, see: Bolduc, Alex

That was another case of 'big heart - small brain'.

Minister of Offence 02-05-2010 03:17 PM

Carkner's sure making a name for himself. And like its been mentioned he's played solid and mostly mistake free hockey all year even responsible top 4 minutes at different times this year.

I dont know all the guys around the league, but Id be surprised if there was a guy who mixed being a fighter/hockey player better then Carkner this year.

He lost one fight to Orr this year, which he got revenge for next time they met.

"We're just getting word from the Leaf bench that Orr's face, and I'm quoting here, looks an awful lot like a bowl of stew."
