    Another Hockey Fight, another wussy ending

    Marchand gets credit for going, and deserves it.

    After losing his helmet, he grabs Niskanen's leg?

    After failing at the wrestling move, he hugs the guy and nods to the ref because he no longer wishes to fight.

    It's like Return of the Jedi.  Awesome beginning, pitiful ending.

    I was having some fun and I would not have been surprised if Marchand had gotten kicked out for that dirty slew foot. Easy Francis you don't have to be the big toe all the time...

    He got hurt when he punched his visor and that's when he wanted to stop fighting.  You could see his knuckles opened up.

    Campbell vs. Vitale

    THAT is a hockey fight.

    No buddy buddy ending there.

    Yes Marchand is funny in that commercial. Love when he's knocking the guy on the head repeatedly.
    The slewfoot was missing.

    I totally disagree. Return of the Jedi sucked from beginning to end! HA!

    Oh, and yeah, that fight looked like they both asked the same girl to the prom and then they both decided to go with each other instead. Pitiful is right!

    Meh, Marchand was taking direct, repeated blows to his head area.  He bit off a bit more than he could chew, no doubt.  Looks like he tried to end it with one giant haymaker, but it didn't connect.  Hence, the leg grab/plea for mercy.  I agree, Campbell fights ANGRY.  He's a tough SOB,

    ROTJ had one of the most underrated spaceship battles in the history of science-fiction spaceship battles.  Flashing my nerd cred big time right about now.

    Marchand did bite off more than he expected because he couldn't reach Niskanen. The Campbell fight was a good one, and Vitale showed how to commit. Where is Thornton in all of these games? Everyone else is doing the fighting, and there aren't any "staged" pugilism slow downs. Time to add Caron's skill to the 4th line, and let Campbell do the fighting.

    I thought it was about as good as a fight can be, when both guys are wearing helmets and shields.

    I was delighted to see Marchand (one of the top 5 point producers on the team) stop pounding his hand into another player's helmet.  I thought he tried to through some inside bombs when he had the chance, instead of just playing it safe.  If both guys took their helmets off, it would have been better.  The slew foot was bad form.  The fight was just fine. 

    But, if you hate the guy to begin with, you probably look at other things.

    Is there something in what I posted that could possibly be slanted due to my dislike of his cheap play?

    Maybe the simple fact that you started a thread dedicated to Marchand not fighting as well as you would've liked. I too wish he fought like Stan Johnathan. He didn't.

    Is it really about Marchand, or about the fight, and the culture today that when you're tired or give up in a fight, you just tell the refs (aka call in mommy) and that's it.

    If you're going to fight, get in it to hurt the other guy and don't stop swinging until someone stops you or the guy is out cold or at the very least down.

    When will Fluto Shinsawa show the courage of his convictions and join his buddy Kevin Paul Dupont in decrying* fighting in hockey?

    (* though i realize Dupont mentioning it once, hardly qualifies as 'decrying' nor 'courage')

     Everyone knows that fighting in hockey is not sustainable, that it really isn't a 'part of the game', that players get seriously and permanently hurt doing it. How many damaged brains is it gonna take?

    Fighting in hockey is a lie.

    I guess that's the real question. Thinking this is new just isn't true though. Probert, McSorley, Domi, etc,...........I've seen all of these guys end fights in much the same manner. I just think we got spoiled by the old-school Bruins who were often in tough battles because they weren't well liked and that suited them just fine.
