Shelley is hands down the best fighter in the league.

Godard can't seem to win many fights anymore...Leave it to 2 goons with almost zero offensive ability to drop the gloves under 3 minutes into the game.

Yeah, Godard isn't really the best fighter but he'll fight anyone at the drop of a hat...of course a lot of the time it's his hat that gets dropped.

He's good, but not that good. The guys below are all as good if not better.
Laraque
Brashear
Boogaard
Orr
MacGrattan
Belak
King
Ivanans

I thought the fight was pretty damn even and good till Godard got his jersey stuck over his head.

I don't know what this talk about Godard not being a good fighter is all about, I have seen him pretty much win every bout this year with the exception of this one but you can clearly see the reason why he lost this one. I was hoping he would go for a rematch.


Sure he isnt Laraque, but nobody is, but he at least is willing to throw them down and actually have a solid shot of winning when he does.

Shelley had the quote of the game later on, when our "bench reporter" asked him why he dropped the gloves at that point in the game (no score, early on).

His answer was basically, "Because it's fun."

Actually the best fighter in the league, "hands down", is wearing the CH this year.

That's right, Steve Begin is the champ

That's usually the description for Shelley. But for some reason he's held his own this year, including a couple of scraps with Parros.

That was Godard's first "loss" this year so it's not like he's always getting a beating. He got unlucky. When you can't see, chances are you're not winning the fight.

You mean like Shawn Thornton?

Most Bruin fans are willing to admit that Laraque is one of the toughest guys in the game, then there's the duplicitous types like you who can't get past the fact that he plays for the Habs.

Good win for Shelly though.

Sure he's tough, but he's no fighter. A "fight" with no punches thrown is pretty lame. He used to be good at it, but now he just isn't the same.

Tell that to his preseason victims. He's sent a couple of people to the hospital in recent years.

I'll admit he doesn't go all-out like Brashear(which is a good thing IMO), but he can really clock people when they try to go toe-to-toe(see recent Youtube vids vs Cote & Orr).

Then again is that a stat one strives for when determining their possible future in the NHL as a kid! I love fighters don't get me wrong but i like fighter who can actually put the puck in the net when needed...Players like Morrow & Iginla who can scrap and score!

You nailed it gooch. this would have been a very good fight if it wasnt for the jersey coming over Godard's head. These new jerseys have to be a pain in the ass for the fighters because you see them come up quite a bit.
