This gives a better guage of what White is made of.... He goes against a reputable fighter and does OK at best. White looks like an awkwardish fighter....not too refined when he punches , though he can easily go with both hands. Opponents seem to have a hard time connecting as he's all over the place (including the hair). As for the fight...doing Draw. Still don't think he's the Hab's answer as their main enforcer.

Posted by pinpin on March 22, 2011 at 10:25 AM

I have to say draw not much going on both were game but neither could get off!

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 22, 2011 at 05:10 AM

That one left by White, was a as good as most of those Stoner rights, combined, but the ''Canadien'' won the ''bad hair'' competition...hands down.

Posted by Riomouse911 on March 21, 2011 at 12:38 PM

The feed was so choppy it was nearly unwatchable. Honestly, with the flailing arms and the hair flying this fight looked like two Yorkshire terriers locked in a clothes dryer. I have no idea who won, a draw.

Posted by staceyb on March 20, 2011 at 08:51 PM

I'll call it even but given the outcome of the game (8-1 when I turned it off) there would be no argument from me that White won. Stoner was interviewed after the first period and he had a welt above the left eyelid that will probably turn black tomorrow. Meanwhile, the HNIC crew of Ron MacLean, P.J. Stock and Kelly Hrudey all ripped Matt Cooke a new one for his flagrant elbow major earlier in the afternoon against Ryan McDonagh. They all agree that Cooke is done for the rest of the season and I believe it was Stock who suggested that repeat offender Cooke needs counseling before he plays again. Cooke is most definitely a head case.

Posted by tocchetblue on Mar 21, 2011 at 5:20 AM are you people blind stoner destroyed white. ===================================== No he did not. They both connected with exactly ONE PUNCH EACH. The videos here at have gotten slow and blurry. Go to youtube to see it correctly. You will change your mind about that Stoner destruction of White. '

Posted by versatik on March 21, 2011 at 05:47 PM

One punch each....they tried to remove the elmet of each other and after was only punching in the air... so draw for me

Posted by Thibodeau on March 21, 2011 at 01:46 PM

I find it odd that no more than 2 weeks ago Habs fans were saying that this is not hockey and now that they have White they are all about this part of hockey. Well how times have changed in such a short period of time. To be honest I like this White kid, granted he really hasn't fought anybody, but I like how he sticks up for his teammates and plays hard. I wouldn't be surprised to see this kid come thursday go after Chara for what happened the last time they played. Its good to see a Habs player with some balls. To much hair and not a whole lot of solid contact in this bout - Draw

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on March 21, 2011 at 02:07 AM

Stoner is 6'3, left his feet and delivers an elbow to Palushaj's head on the check so a definite missed penalty....White makes him answer for it I call it a draw with a whole lotta wild misses and gave it a 6 for the wild hair....looked like Stoner might have landed 1-2 more but he took the hardest punch so a toss-up.... I agree White is not a big time enforcer but love the grit (and the hair) he brings every night EDIT: penguinscup09, are you aware of the word hypocrite? Calling Montreal classless when you have Matt Cooke on your team? Wow

Posted by pascaloup on March 20, 2011 at 09:56 PM

White is still doing is job. He's not a killer but he has guts. No doubt, the CH needs him.

Posted by kimo_coyote on March 21, 2011 at 12:03 AM

It was entertaining, like a freight train wreck.. Draw.or if you must have a winner edge, ever so slight to Stoner

Posted by slavv on March 21, 2011 at 05:17 PM

Leaving the feet to run or jump into somebody is a Charging violation in every level of hockey. Now with that out of the way, Stoner seemed to have better control with his size advantage, but White landed the two best shots...

Posted by WildFan23 on March 20, 2011 at 08:47 PM

sadly the best highlight of the game for the Wild gave it a 6 and a draw!!

Posted by fightmefag on March 21, 2011 at 12:57 AM

i actually thought it was a great fight! that rookie has Balls of Steel! White is such a tough kid and Stoner might be a bigger boy, 4 inches taller, like 45 pounds heavier and he's been giving some hard hits on the other players previously. White comes to the rescue! I agree at first Stoner may look like he controls the fight but check this picture to see that beautiful punch White landed on him: IMO, great fights does not always end in KO's, you gotta see the history behind it. i call this one DRAW.

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 16, 2016 at 08:23 AM

Pretty good fight. Was all Stoner at the start. Then White came on strong at the end. Draw.

Posted by kendryden on March 20, 2011 at 09:45 PM

I'll take a Gordie Howe hat trick over an enforcer any day.

Posted by scorp1on on March 22, 2011 at 05:08 AM

What is this? The official "Ryan Fight Week" in the NHL? 3 more days for all the other Ryans in the league to get their fights in and then we can rate them. So far it Reaves, Carter, Jones,and White since the 18th. Anyway... Lotta grappling. Lotta throwing. Stoner with a couple more thrown punches but only one or two good ones. White with one good one late. Ehhhh... draw just shy of a Stoner edge as the linesmen intercede for two tired but unscathed lads.

Posted by Watsatheo on March 21, 2011 at 03:36 PM

Close fight, Habs used the momentum from it to score shortly after.

Posted by GSP09 on March 21, 2011 at 03:26 PM

White defending smaller players again with success, it changed the game and did not see any more bullying from the Wild after this, also a Gordie Howe hat trick with a goal,an assist and a fight.

Posted by hanky2 on March 23, 2011 at 03:33 PM

nice fight pretty even

Posted by Silky Smith on March 21, 2011 at 05:22 PM

everybody must get stoned. this time Clayton as he took a nice left by White and that was the difference

Posted by ABMcK on March 20, 2011 at 07:19 PM

It appears that Ryan may be trying to send a message to the Canadien's management and his fellow team mates; he's here to stay!

Posted by ch_fan on March 21, 2011 at 07:41 AM

Stoner gets the win. White is what the ch needs more of. Here he gives 40 pounds to Stoner and he still made a statement. Love this Manitoba kid.

Posted by js2 on March 21, 2011 at 10:01 PM

White landed the only big punch and did some damage as shown during the intermission interview of Stoner. Edge White.

Posted by bloodfire781 on March 21, 2011 at 08:25 AM

are u guys blind stoner dint land anything...white got a good one in and his face was clean during the ist peroid interview....stoner had a nice welt on his face.I give the edge to white for sending a message to the much bigger man even though thechnicly it was a draw

Posted by DARCY T on March 21, 2011 at 04:29 AM

i start to like this white guy.he landed the best punch of the fight and was able to duck almost all big guy's punches.edge white but might be a draw as well...gave it 7

Posted by bodgertime on March 21, 2011 at 06:10 PM

white landed a really solid left. i'm about quality not quantity in a hockey fight, stoner was game but i'm giving it to white who's haphazard chucking style is entertaining.

Posted by legion31 on March 21, 2011 at 09:36 AM

great left from white - edge ryan

Posted by Happy2 on March 21, 2011 at 09:38 AM

White landed the best and only punch, Stoner did not land any. White with the win.

Posted by pharroch on March 21, 2011 at 09:27 AM

Another entertaining fight for Ryan White, this guy belongs in the NHL...and good for him on his 1st Gordie Howe hatrick!

Posted by paradan on March 20, 2011 at 08:33 PM

Good scrap white is gonna be a good middle weight someday

Posted by BigBird on March 20, 2011 at 11:13 PM

Good for White, sticking up for his teammate. Win to Stoner but points to White for a great left hand and giving up 4" and 40 pounds to Stoner.

Posted by lb1631 on March 22, 2011 at 10:21 AM

I like Stoner. Give him the edge.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 21, 2011 at 09:06 PM

Im glad we got to watch half the first period before the fight started. Edge Stoner

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on March 20, 2011 at 08:59 PM

Stoner controlled. Btw Stoner was hit by the stick before the fight in an earlier shift.

Posted by JMiller29 on March 22, 2011 at 01:14 PM

Guys leave their feet near the boards to keep their toes and knees from slamming into the boards and take their legs out of the equation, like outfielders...announcer's a tool....white loses. Leaving the feet to run or jump into somebody is a Charging violation in every level of hockey. - "slaw" Rule says "a player who skates or jumps into"...You can leave your feet without jumping into I said, you do it to avoid hurting your legs/knees/ankles etc...happens in football all the time to get the weight off your vulnerable joints. You've never realized you were gonna run into someone so you instinctively jump up or at least "leave your feet?"...even to negate some of your own momentum.

Posted by slainte12 on March 23, 2011 at 04:32 PM

Easy wn for Stoner. The wussyified Canadiens must be rubbing off on this kid who was brought in solely to fight because nobody else on the roster will do so. White looks like a drugged out '70s rocker flailing about, which is dangerous if you get in the way, but he's certainly not a structured fighter. Stoner proved that without question.

Posted by Jonathan Sparks on March 21, 2011 at 07:11 AM

I really like this kid White. Lots of guts and has no problem sticking up for his teammates. Not a heavyweight but a really good middleweight. He should stick with the big team.

Posted by kinga101 on March 20, 2011 at 07:27 PM

I like what White brings to Montreal, but he isn't the answer to their enforcer needs. As for the fight, White landed the best punch but Stoner had a slight edge with more landing.

Posted by mudman55 on March 21, 2011 at 08:31 AM

White did what had to be done, but came up on the short end. Stoner with the W.

Posted by countejacula on March 20, 2011 at 11:55 PM

Good energy to the fight but little connecting with the fists to the face. Stoner should have received a penalty for his hit and since there wasn't one, White needed to defend his teammate so good on him for that. Gave the bout to Stoner for rink dictatorship and better shots landed early. White only got one good haymaker in really.

Posted by jascol0140 on September 05, 2011 at 10:50 PM

White didn't even land a punch, Clayton dominated him

Posted by Walt on March 21, 2011 at 07:57 AM

Energetic bout with a Stoner decision. He is a bright spot for a team that has given up (outscored 28-9 during their 6 game losing streak).

Posted by BooSanta on March 21, 2011 at 06:14 PM

Lots of wild missing as this fight happens spur of the moment after a questionable leave the feet hit by The Stoner. Ryan white skates towards Stoner to defend his mate but Stoner had the gloves off first (which prevented the instigation) and started away at Whitey early. Good left gave Stoner a nice mouse above his eye around midway. that was the best shot of the fight, but Stoner still landed more and threw more here.

Posted by b.t.wilson on March 20, 2011 at 10:32 PM

Good job by Where the Wild Things Are to take care of business from a questionable hit, but Stoner takes the win here. 6. (Since Cooke was mentioned, is it me or did he get so much worse after leaving the Canucks? Regardless, I hope that joke is gone for a loooong while. I'm all for what Stock said).

Posted by rocky 1 on March 22, 2011 at 08:26 PM

Close fight with edge to Stoner!

Posted by Haleskii on March 21, 2011 at 10:58 AM

Nice showing by my Wild....ugh. Embarrassing. Anyway, while White did land a nice solid shot at the end, the majority of the action appeared to favor Stoner, with a couple of solid shots of his own. Win Stoner by a comfortable margin, props to White for not letting Stoner's hit go unanswered.

Posted by bruins rule on March 21, 2011 at 08:19 AM

stoner gets the win in this fight.

Posted by Wildbill63mn on March 21, 2011 at 05:21 AM

Well Stacy BJ if you watched the game after Clay plowed White into the boards he got slash under his eye went the bench and got it fixed, and came right back out and gave another great hit then the fight Started. And according to Habs Fans there was the Fabulous " Hay Maker " that White hit Stoner with, why didn't this great shot reopen the cut from the slash under his eye and let the blood gush out? Why because most of the shots were glancing blows and Clay got more in then the great White. So hit to hit I would give it to : Stoner.

Posted by GreatMurray on March 21, 2011 at 08:54 AM

Good go! Both acted like they wanted to fight. Edge to Stoner for landing more.

Posted by bloodonyourlips on March 20, 2011 at 09:18 PM

Close one, Stoner definitely threw more but White got the best one in, edge Stoner. Montreal within 1 point of the Boston Cheap Shot Artists, looking forward to Thursday.

Posted by Levance on March 21, 2011 at 09:20 AM

Lol at Habs fans and their freaking pictures!!! White got maybe one shot in other then that handled by Stoner, Stoner landed more and was clearly in control for the fight, really no argument here Stoner with the win

Posted by tocchetblue on March 21, 2011 at 06:20 AM

are you people blind stoner destroyed white.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on March 21, 2011 at 07:05 AM

Habs continue to be tackling dummies on skates and punching bags. Stoner with a domination

Posted by C-7Enforcer on March 20, 2011 at 10:29 PM

I am by no means a Montreal fan but I like this White kid. He stuck up for his teammate again and landed a really good left to the beek of Stoner that definitely stung him. Stoner with the edge though!!

Posted by PENGUINSCUP09 on March 20, 2011 at 10:38 PM

White gets schooled; and BIG THUMBS DOWN to montreals classless running up the score, at 5-0 just to get subban a meaningless hat-trick. Gee subban and classless in the same sentence. Who is surprised?

Posted by BrewzYourEye on March 22, 2011 at 01:28 AM

White got the best shot but Stoner got a bunch of good ones in. Win stoney.

Posted by chad420 on March 22, 2011 at 11:17 AM

Whitey got Stoned

Posted by hncreature on March 20, 2011 at 11:58 PM

Did anything land? They looked like a couple of windmills - Draw

Posted by koolpunch on March 20, 2011 at 10:19 PM

White gets off to a bad start by eating one early, but fights back and lands a beauty of his own. Draw.

Posted by 47knuckle on March 21, 2011 at 07:33 PM

So , White comes off the bench on a line change after another player again, who is already on the ice and what looks like a clean hit. The first was Johnny Boycheck. Who never even connected on his hit. He'll get his chance to answer the bell this Thursday night!

Posted by claire alexande on March 22, 2011 at 07:34 PM

I'd give a slight edge to Stoner (although I could certainly see people rating it a draw) in this scrap between the guy with the best name in the league and the NHLer who most resembles that bad dude in No Country for Old Men.

Posted by nickfotiu on March 21, 2011 at 04:07 PM

possilble injury to Montreal player, might want to have criminal investigation against Minnesota player Stoner for being to violent against a Canadien player. This type of action is not acceptable against Montreal..ever!

Posted by Shoeman72 on March 21, 2011 at 02:54 AM

Good tilt. Stoner edged it out. Good BC boy

Posted by BostonBruins19 on March 20, 2011 at 07:08 PM

i love the f-bombs that the microphones picked up...i kind of like white too (even though im a bruins fan)...kid just throws

Posted by thombray on March 20, 2011 at 09:24 PM

that wasn't even close...white only landed 1 good one...meanwhile his head was like a punching bag
