Time to glue the gloves on Iggy if you are losing fights to Rinaldo.

Sometimes Iggy is a slow starter, I wouldn't be too concerned. Looked like he wanted to keep going. He probably handles himself just fine against Rinaldo more often than not.

Why did Iginla instigate the fight and then decide not to throw any punches or even protect himself

Maybe back in the day, but for his size Rinaldo hits like a ton of bricks. Iggy got tuned up and the fight was over as soon as he got nailed. To me it looked like he was dazed. Both men are tough hombres and no one wins all their fights.

I am assuming you have not and suggest that you check out some of Rinaldo's fights on hockeyfights.com or youtube. Losing to Rinaldo even for a bigger guy like Iginla is nothing to be ashamed of. He can flat out wreck people.

No offense to Iginla - he's proven himself very capable of handling his business - but it struck me there that Iginla wasn't wanting much to do with Rinaldo, had given the impression he'd "go" but had assumed that the linesmen were going to step in. Not sure he really wanted any of that.

Nice fight, and as another poster said it looked like Iginla got his bell rung pretty good.

You do realize that Rinaldo is one of the most lethal scrappers on the league whereas Iginla is a star player who isn't afraid to drop the gloves right?

I'm pretty sure Iginla was expecting to square off and was surprised by how quick Rinaldo got the gloves off and started throwing. Nobody's fault but his own. Rindaldo is a wild swinger that can do damage early and take over a fight.

Another one of those "i just got crushed by a big, legal hit, i must fight you" fight.

Good on Rinaldo for A. Crushing Iginla and B. Folding the crap out of him during that fight.

I always love when the person who instigates the fights gets their can handed to them. Rinaldo was on a war path in that one!

You should watch more Rinaldo fights, dude probably has the hardest punches in the league.

The same Rinaldo who got dummied by Tropp in one of Tropp's first games in the league coming out of College? The guy may be able to punch hard but he's terrible technically.

Maybe so. But it's still what his role is in the league and very different from iginla who is a star who will fight and not an enforcer.

That fight was from 2 1/2 years ago. Probert went from the Heavyweight champ to a mid-level fighter at best during that time frame.
