Pretty one sided fight...bad result with the way Newbury went down. Thankfully, that report from TSN is good news on Newbury's condition.

But, wow...never knew Petro had that in him. Put that one in the "KTFO" file.

Maple Leafs winger Kris Newbury is expected to be out about a week after taking a fierce beating from Penguins right winger Ronald Petrovicky in a third-period fight. The two had a 10-minute phone conversation Sunday. "I told him it wasn't his fault," Newbury told reporters yesterday. "He felt bad about what happened."

Good thing about hockey and sports in general, these two will probably now be friends the rest of their careers.

Players should only fight cause they´re pissed, not to please the audience.

The only thing...


You're a real expert, aren't you... Or just not paying attention.

Please give me a list of 5 Ruutu cheapshots this season.

I don't mind the players getting their noses broken, or get black eyes or even having their faces look like bloody messes...but I don't want the players to lay on the ice half-dead. There is a big difference and I'm sure the players when they fight even when they're pissed only try to hurt the players a little and not try to kill them which usually is pretty much an accident anyway. This happens very rarely.

Think about MMA. Most fighters are really good guys...I mean really good guys. They try to hurt each other during a fight but they never want to see their opponent get hurt. Same goes in a hockey fight. Do you know what I mean ?

I was referring to the tag team of Orpik, Malone, Petrovisky, Thorburn, and Armstrong. Between these guys I do not see the need to get a guy who can do nothing more than go out there and fight.
Well, it's debatable that such was required even without them. I suppose the question is, how much harrasment are your star kids taking every game, and is it worth getting someone who might tone it down. Another question, I suppose, is do pure fighters tone anything down anymore?

I just do not see the need for an enforcer when that roll has been covered by the team as a whole.
Nailing Koivu, taking down Newbury etc is pretty small stuff. You may be right, I don't see the Penguins often, but if your stars, who are all pretty young have people leaving them alone a bit more, then you're right. If not, it wouldn't hurt but I agree it's not overly necessary in todays NHL.

yeah i know what you mean...and in no way was i singling your post out to pick on you...and yet, i just dont buy this whole idea of "a player wanting to hurt another, but not really"...when a guy who's 6'4, 230lbs is doing what he's paid for, punching a guy in the face, its hard to also tell him to control the amount of damage he does with his fists...if he does his job well, and connects flush with a face, then there's no telling how badly you can hurt the other guy...but again, i dont think the amount of damage done is the true issue...

Classy act by Petro. Hockey is also this.

I love fighting but that is tough to watch. I can't recall the last time someone was knocked out in a fight.

Great fight and the kid got destroyed. Tough to see but the fans LOVE this. American ones especially. Honestly market this knockout and youll make yourself a new fanbase in the states!

I think you're right. Newbury goes limp after one of those punches and starts to go down.

definately is out on his feet... but the hitting the back of the head on the ice is the scary part.

i enjoyed the fight and the pens not getting pushed around but i dont want to see guys knocked out on their feet to end up slamming their heads on the ice. im glad he is ok

talbot was on a local radio show yesterday being asked how great that fight was... his replied was that it just was pretty scary. like the guy above said americans might like knockouts but these guys play hockey they arent boxing. while fighting is apart of the game i dont like seeing guys career close to being ended for a hockey fight.
