Belak outclassed Janssen all the way in this bout. Belak went right after Janssen and took it to him. He deserves all the credit. Jansenn's "finish strong" act after dancing and waving off the refs is getting tired.
Belak went to town early, though Janssen's style saved him from taking any big shots. Only after Janssen started throwing did anything really land. Belak landed three shortly after that, Janssen landed a few, especially later in the fight. The last true shots were one from Janssen that the crowd "OOH"'ed at, but Belak responded right away with a cross that caught Janssen, which was the last real punch thrown in the fight. I think Belak edges it out for throwing more, hitting more, and even when he was struggling at the end, still managing to land a few. Janssen did good and was not beaten senseless by any means, but god his fighting style is boring.
Decision Belak. When I saw it live I thought Belak went to a knee on his own but after seeing it a second time I think Janssen forced him down. Decent scrap.
Belak layed a thumping on "Meat-Head"... Made Kaberle proud in the dressing room! Well done Wade! Too bad you weren't dressed in Jersey that fatefull March 2nd game...
not even close. And Cam's Barney impersonation is OLD already.
Belak easily had the upper hand this fight. The whole "let me try and stay out of reach till he exhausts himself" style of fighting is fairly dull IMHO. As for Janssen, I give him full credit for dropping his gloves with some of the real heavyweights, but drop the gloves and fight, don’t skate around and hope the guy falls asleep before you throw a punch.
Okay, who ever says Janssen did well is off his meds. Punches thrown may have been close but punches landed were like what 15-1 in Belaks favor. The only sportsdesk you could watch and they would say Janssen landed some shots is probably one out of New Jersey. Watch the video most of Janssens shots are missing and the hook in his forearm is hitting Belak which is not a punch landed. Belak lands some hooks and jabs the shit out of Janssens chin.
One of the better fights of the season by Belak. Kids got a lot of heart (and not a lot of talent, but that's ok in the NHL, which is what I love about hockey). Gotta give credit to Janssen too. After the Kaberle incident, you knew something was gonna happen. He faced the facts, took on one of the bigger guys in the league, and took his lumps. The classy way to exorcise your demons, in my opinion. Belak wins the fight, but can't really say a bad thing about either guy in this situation.
I think the fight was real close, but even though I really want to give the win to Belak, I just think that Jannsen was better, especially towards the end of the fight. Jannsen lands 5 or 6 over the course of 15-20 seconds that are real clean punches.
one of the best fights of the year IMO. Belak clearly landed more, none slowed down Janssen, wheres the few that Cam threw connected hard and slowed Belak. those who are bellyaching about Janssen seem to think that this incredible fight could have happened without him. we all agree it was a great fight - and thats because of BOTH OF THE PATICIPANTS.
I am not a leafs nor a devils fan and this fight was ok not more, there have been many better fights this year I can't beleive people going crazy over it. Belak had the edge early and janssen had the edge late. Size difference should have made a bigger difference in this fight but i think janssen is a better fighter than belak, if they were the same size belak would of got killed. Where was big mouth tucker hiding, he's pretty good at going after guys smaller than him athough janssen isn't that much bigger.
Where's the o2? great fight
Belak had him off the bat but wasn't landing much except to his shoulder pads. Once Janssen got him in close, Belak was looking for an out and was obviously tired. Belak had the beggining and Janssen the end.
very nice fight 2 tuff guys
Lots of punches thrown, barely any landed...belak threw close to 30 land maybe maybe 5...no way he get the decision he never hit him. Punches landed=points punches thrown=nothing.
One of the best I've seen lately. Belak did what he had to, and so did Janssen.
hats off to Belak,i guess he won the fight but used alot of energy swinging wildly and was lucky enuff to stay on his feet till the end,he better learn to throw some lefts if the righs don`t connect or he`ll be in trouble with other heavy weights!!
The announcer said it best janssen is waiting and waiting..like he always does... edge to belak!!!
Belak with an easy win over maybe I will throw a pucnh sometime this decade
A decent effort from Belak he threw way more punches then he usually does but Janssen is a way better fighter. still give the w to Belak for more punches landed. Janssen is one of the better fighters in the league and Belak is a horrible fighter but is huge so good scrap
Cammie is a joke. A flat out joke. By the way, this was hardly a "great fight." How many quality shots landed?
Belak, won! What ever happened when two guys would go toe to toe and actually fought. This is crazy, all they do now and is hang on, keep their faces out of arms length and go araound in circles. I wish I could see this squirt Janssen fight someone like Behn Wilson or Bob Nystrom in their prime...
good fight, janssens shots did not seem to have much on them, I give the edge to Belak
Being a leafs fan, I was excited to see this one, and from what I had heard, thought I was about to see a classic. Not the case. Alot of ducking and was only a long fight because of that. A few good blows, but nothing great...still would have loved to have been there...the crowd sounded pumped!!
belak dominate but not at all
Belak shoulld have just came up and beat the crap of jassen more than he did
dissapointed in janssen should have done better against belak who can only fight guys smaller than him because he cant fight the likes of laraque or mcgratton
janssen made it close at the end.
Belak landed better shots... Hardly "payback" by any means. Would've rather seen Janssen/Tucker II. Props to Janssen for hanging in, but edge to Belak.
As much as I hate Belaks fighting style, its always good to see a creep like Jansen get feed......But i woulda rather seen Tucker step up and tune that greaseball. P.S Ur all talk C.Adam.27....It would take 4 of you juts to rip a picture of me..It just shows that any fuckin dumass can be a hero on this site...
Good fight from Cam giving away 5 inches.
Janssen is a clown just as Barnaby is a clown. The beginning of the self promoting era in hockey ala Rodman, Owens ect ect...... No No dont jump in Id like to spin around in circles a few more minutes as I keep well out of harms way.
No doubt Belak won the first 2 minutes of this 3 minute fight. The last minute--Jannsen gets slight edge--but its not as though Belak didnt also get in some at the end. So on that basis--you have to give the whole fight to Belak. Certainly if I had to guess who was huring more at the end--it would be Jannsen.
Belak for sure, he controll and set the pace of the fight, Janssen came on a bit towards the end but Belak closed with a good shot and won hands down.
Im tired of Cam Jansen.Hes a useless peice of crap who cant fight.
edge Belak... Cam finished well as expected but Belak was busier throughout the fight. the commentator is right the NHL may not want fighting but the fans do!! DAAAA or coase the soccer moms who have never been to a game think its barberic
atta boy belak, loved to see this much anticipated fight, both got some decent shots in but mroe effective by belak, win belak!
A proper end to a mess. Belak calls him out, Jannsen answers like a man. Close fight, but I give the edge to Wade. Janssen needs to get the crap kicked out of him one day while he is waiting for his opponent to tire out. That tactic has gotten old. But still cudos for answering the call.
janseen's a complete loser
Janssen one of the all time meatheads in the league. Too bad Wade didn't knock him cold just like Colton Orr tonight w/T. Fedoruk. I'd love to bring back Probert and teach Janssen a lesson.
Belak took care of business and did the Leafs proud! I'm tired of hearing how Janssen is a "great finisher." He's a great finisher because he doesn't throw any punches and therefore never gets tired. Took quite a few shots, though. Needs to change his style.
LMAO that announcer cracks me up. Belak manned up and carried the fight the whole way. Jannsen got nailed in the mug three straight early on and his elbow par was the last thing on his mind. right on the button. Great job Belak
Janssen made it close near the end, but I still give the edge to Belak. Belak probably landed about 8 out of 100 punches whereas Janssen landed about 5 out of 10.
Honestly i cannot believe some of the posts on here. How the f*ck can u say that Jannsen even deserved a draw??? Come on now, what fight were u watching. Jannsen is a straight up punk and took a beating. To all you fools that think Jannsen got the decision u need to get your head checked, maybe your vision too...or better yet stop being a stupid American!!!!!!
close but you gotta give it to beeler for the opening 40 seconds. both guys showed good toughness...pussy fight? i don't think so! its a freaking long season...you want to keep a job, career....got to be an animal without losing your mind....ask Todd Fedoruk! i doubt if he plays another nhl game. Janssen is head is a cement block and he's nuts...beeler did a great job!
Good fight, Belak won!
Good long tilt....Belak early and Janssen later..but overall W goes to Belak for the number of unanswered punches early.
My 7 year old son gives Belak the edge on this one.
Belak gets the decision, cudos to Cam Janssen for manning up.
Good fight! But not that good what I expect....Dääm.... ;)
Janssen- for ending the fight with a few good punches. If this went 1 more minute, Belak would be spittin' chickletts.
Neither player did any damage except run out of gas. Looked like a draw to my eyes.
Nice fair square off at the beginning. Belak takes beginning of fight, Cam takes second half and still had fuel in the tank while Belak already had "puppy dog" eyes towards the linesmen to stop the fight......Draw. No blood - no winner. P.S. Tucker is still a bitch - all talk.
Belak threw a ton early on - landed a few, but Janssen came back late and probably landed more quality punches. The bout went long - both guys showed some guts. Janssen deserved a worse fate after needlessly boarding Kaberle.
belak early janssen late call it a draw.
ok fight. I don't know if i saw a punch land. Do those guys fight with their eyes closed? it was one of those new era defensive fights without any actual punches landing.
lots of dancing
Far from the payback that was deserved.
Nice long fight. Janssen mostly kept away from Belak's reach for the first half of the fight. Belak tired in the second half, and Janssen became the aggressor gaining the upper hand as the linesmen stepped in.
That may have been the longest fight I have ever seen. Kudos to the linesmen for letting them go. I don't like Janssen, but I give him the nod based on endurance and slipping Belak's punches while landing some decent ones. Disappointed in Belak, thought he would land some better ones.
very close belak in the beginning janssen finishing but neither landed a lot of punches but it was a great fight
Belak for sure. He connected with at least 4 or 5 bombs, maybe to the side of the head/face, but he still connected. Janssen only had about 2 or 3 that grazed Belak. The best was Belaks last shot that made him lose his balance and collapse. Way to go Belak. I didn't think this fight would happen due to the playoff race being so close. Got the boys pumped though.
janssen finished strong
good fight, both guys took a few, and landed a few
How much weight did each lose during this fight? Don't know how the rest of the game went - did either have any energy for the rest of the game?
Give it to Belak for landing more, and for actually trying. But I doubt Janssens feels like he "got taught a lesson" from this one.
Cam had it coming to him
Wade Belak beat Cam Janssen in tis bout for sure. He threw more, landed more, and he outlasted Janssen. Not the best fight I've seen but not the worst either.
Belak was wasting a lot of energy throwing punches that weren't even landing, but he did get a few good one's in. He was tiring out at the end when Janssen was just getting going. It's a good thing it ended when it did or else Belak would of been in a heap of trouble.
Belak landed more while Janssen got a few good ones in. I give a slight edge to Belak for the early domination while Janssen never really evened the score.
edge Belak and well done to him for taking the stand
Good scrap. I wish Janssen would have gotten knocked out, or jumped. But the nhl wont let it happen anymore.
Janssen sure is a wuss. He likes to dance around and spin like a bitch. Belak landed many more shots. Even Janssens "strong" finish was weak. He got a good beating for a cheap shot.
It was close, but win for Belak. Both guys were pumped for this fight. Give credit to Janssen for answering the bell after the cheap hit on Kaberle in the last game.
good fight, Janssen looks to be scared at first, maybe he knew he had to take a little bit first, but he did land a couple hits at the end. Is that his MO, to let the other guy tire out first, then try and go at him? If it is, he will get KO'd by a big guy. Good to see Janssen stand up for himself, this is what Hockey is all about!
Awesome fight, it was great to watch and the crowd went nuts! Give belak the win in this one.
This fight was awesome, one of the fights of the year. Hats off to both players.
Belak showed that he is not afraid to take on Janssen, and whether he wins or loses, I respect someone willing to take on Janssen.
Belak with another domination!!!!!!!!! Cam should get his balls back from his mommy and learn how to fight!
some quality shots by both players but I think Belak landed more off the start while Jansen was trying to remember how to fight.
Domination for Belak
Wade Landed some good body shots to start and then connected a couple of nice face shots. Cam came to the fight too late In my opinion as even he was exhausted before he threw a punch and mustered a couple zingers off Belak's Bucket. decision Belak comeon if janssen had landed even one good punch I sure didn't see it and ive seen this fight a good many times!!
Give this one to Belak . Janssen hung in there and got some shots in at the end but so did Belak. Belak was way busier and connected more often.
Guaranteed this one is on Don Cherry's next Rock 'Em Sock 'Em DVD Great fight and as the commentator said, Janssen knew it was coming and that in a way he deserved whatever he got. Would've liked to see Belak piss pound him a bit better than he did but a guy Janssen's size and strength you cant string him out and pump him.
Pretty good bout, Belak landed majority of punches..definitely threw more. Janssen landed most of his near the end when belak was tired out. Nice to see Janssen answer the bell, he knew it was coming!
Belak's a big boy & took the win in this bout. As much as i feel Janssen should die for what he did to kabby, he took his lumps like a man. He is an absolute monster & deserves credit for going as long as he did the way he took shots to the head, they may not have been square on but a punch to the head is a punch to the head. Both fighterss got a well deserved standing O. Francis Bouillon should take note of both belak & janssen NOT wearing a visor during a fight. Very entertained & thank-god janssen didn't turn his back on the fighter like peters does. for sure one of the best this year to watch!
THAT was a long scruff, Belak got more connected
Marathon bout of the season. This fight met all expectations. Belak with the edge in a close fight. you have to give credit to Janssen though, he backed up his actions when called upon.
Good fight, those announcers stink though
One of the better fights of the year, even though Cam did his damn figure skating in circles for the first minute. Obviously Belak won the first 3/4 of the fight and Cam won the end, overall Belak gets the win. Neither landed any real haymakers, which like many other people wrote, is because of this damn circle jerk that seems to be happening in many fights this year. Either way, I am a wings fan and it's nice to see their are still "heavyweights" playing in the league. I thought they were outlawed in 2003.
Nice to see Janssen get pummled. A very disturbing trend is these guys who want to fight all defensive like Janssen, Peters, etc. It is, in my opinion a cowardly way to fight, using the helmet and pads to deflect punches. As usual, I am sure some dipstick voted Janssen the win. You are wrong.
Belak's longer arms won this fight...
it was a great fight. Janssen deserved it for that bad hit on Kaberle. And what does he get? 3 games. And Kaberle is out for 8 games and counting. But i guess it's okay. I mean Janssen never plays so it doesnt matter if he's on the bench watching the game or at home on the couch watching the game.
boy belak...janssen clings on looking for the KO, waits for belak to get tired and then lands a few punches, still, belak gets the win...respect for both of the boys
Great fight. Edge Belak.
Old time hockey at it's best. There is nothing more noble than seeking retribution for your teammate and credit to Janssen for standing up for his deed. This is how the game is policed, something that non-Canadians can't understand.........great scrap by two of the games warriors and good job by the officials letting it go!
Too bad they both kept their helmets on, or it would have been a much better fight. Janssen proved that he can take a lot of punches.
Rockem Sockem Robots!!!
ONCE AGAIN YOU CAN TELL THE DEVILS FANS, NOT SURE WHAT GAMES THEY ARE WATCHING, BUT BELAK ALL THE WAY, I DONT BUY THE JANSSEN I AM SORRY STORY, ONCE A THUG, ALWAYS A THUG
Janssen lost period! Yes, Belak landed to the helmet alot, but still scored to the face more than Janssen. Anyone who thinks otherwise is blind. No , I'm not a Leafs fan, and for the guy who said look at Tucker's reaction, he's obviously "whistling" in approval. Both fighters were more honest in annalizing the fight in post-game interviews than those of you who are in denial! Sportsnet counted 16 hits by Belak, before Janssen connected once. Janssen by no means mirrors Stan Jonathan. By saving his energy until the end, all he did was effectively show he was the superior punching bag! That being said, you've got to repect the class shown by both teams after the tilt.
belak kicked some ass right there.
Gotta hand it to Janssen, he wanted to go the distant, it didn't help.
loved how the refs let them finish.. GREAT FIGHT
Ugghh!! I'm so sick of hearing about how Belak "Pummelled Janssen! You call throwing a bunch of punches that grazed the side of the helmet a pummelling!! Granted he (Belak) did get in some good body shots, it is far from a pummelling!! Where was 'ol "Threats" Tucker..NOWHERE! He shot his mouth off the last time they played and the coward didn't back them up! You can sit there and criticise Janssen's fight style but he stayed in there with a guy a lot bigger than him and still managed to land a few good ones in the end. And who wound up on the ice after it was over? BELAK!! Like him or not, Janssen's a tough guy that won't back down from anyone!
typical cam...waits waits waits...just this time he never really got hit throughout....landed the better shots and controlled the end of the fight...shame he didnt go with tucker too
I've seen Belak do a lot better. Throws a lot of air shots. Janssen's game plan seems simple. Let the other guy punch himself out.
If landing punches to the shoulder pads and the air were how this was scored belak would have ran away with it. . . . . sadly it is not. Both landed a few good shots, but I gotta give the nod to janssen.
Jansens took the part of the fight that counts, the end.
One of the better fights I have seen all year. Janssen waited until Belak gassed before he started to throw.
Very close fight. I give the nod to Janssen due to stamina. Belak tired and was throwing pillows at the end. Decent scrap though and the refs should be commended for staying back and letting the fight run its course.
belak got great hits in the beginning bc he had a good hold on janssen. however, belak falls to his knees and is not getting up towards the end..winner= janssen
Belak takes the victory. Janssen didnt appear to try to hard until the end.....I think he was just letting belak tire himself out...and that happend but I still think that belak won it.
First half to Belak, eventhough no punches landed. Second half to Janssen. His stamina took over and Belak couldn't hang along anymore. Pretty good bout. Draw, with slight edge to Janssen.
At the Beggining, Belak threw a Few Punches, after that it was all Janssen. Look at the Size difference and Janssen still beat him!!!
some one please tell me how the Fuck!! belak has the voted winner in this fight!!! every single pethetic punch he landed was to helmet or to body wich is fuckin stupid in a hockey fight, all the punches that cam landed were to FACE!!!. you femals are stupid and would not stant a chance against me.
I'll give the fight to Belak (and I'm a Devils fan), but I'll also give it up for Chico and Doc, not taking the "homer" stance while the fight was going on. Everyone knew it was coming, Janssen, Belak, hell even my 11 year old did. And Janssen took it like a man. Still don't like what he did to Kaberle, but it's done. Just wish the Devils would have won, because the Pens are looking strong!
Great Tilt - Being a Big Cam Janssen Fan and also a Leafs Fan I Have been waiting for this for weeks. Favor to Belak because he landed more thank Cam did. Belak threw a few good body shots in there as well. Great Fight Thats the way to Step up Cam and Respect the CODE!
Janssen shades it for me. Belak took a knee at the end
Great fight, they were both dog tired at the end. I give the slight edge to Janssen because Belak didn't land much in the beginning and Cam got in a few good punches near the end.
Janssen is the Man Leafs fans o god
I gave Janssen the edge because regardless of giving up size and weight, he didn't back down and out endured Belak on a very long and great fight!!!!
Of course Belak at the beginning, he had a better grip on Cam's sweater. There's a reason Cam doesn't want the refs to come in, so he can land some of his own. If you're going to compare Janssen to Barnaby, you're as big a clown as Belak. Belak has what, 4 inches on Janssen, and that was a beating. I guess that Belak had to go down to both knees at the end because of the ass whipping he laid on Janssen, RIGHT. No wonder that guy wasn't in the game when Kaberle/twinkle toes got hurt. That guy has been scratched more than someones rashy balls. What was the camera on Tucker for? What the F*** was he gonna do. All hail Domi, Belak, Tucker, etc. If that's an ass-whipping, and at the end the other guy giving it is at his knees, I guess I'll take one any time.
only a leaf fan would dare say Belak won that fight, unless puches to the sholderpads count more than those to the face
Good, kick the hell out of each other there both asswipes, sick of the leafs this ,the leafs that , the team should be overhauled. O ya and speaking of big asswipes TUCKER sure looked tough on the beach ,this guy would need 3 promotions to idiot.
To be fair, they both were tired at the end and they should be. They gave it a good tilt. Good for them!
I'm not sure what fight a lot of you folks were watching, must be a lot of Toronto homers, because CJ clearly took this fight. Belak never landed a punch, albeit he came out looking strong, throwing a lot of nothing shots into the shoulder pads of CJ. CJ wore down Belak and really took it to him at the end of the fight, as Belak was looking for the refs to jump in and end it. What part of that uppercut that caught Belak on the chin did you not see, not to mention the five or six good shots that CJ tagged Belak with at the end of the fight...CJ wins this fight, and yes goon365, Tucker is still and always will be a Bitch!!!
Jannssen never broke a sweat?!?!? you obviously didnt see him in the penalty box with his jersey off pouring water all over his head and panting like a dog in heat know what your talking about before you open your mouth
No contest "iron man" Cam let Belak punch himself out while not landing any effective punches in the first 30 seconds and then had Belak hanging on the rest of the fight while landing some good shots. Belak's lucky the refs ended the fight or he would of got knocked the puck out. Hey,don't take my word for it-take a look at the expression on Darcy Tuckers face after the fight.
Cam did great considering he was marked and Belak had 3-5 inches and 30 lbs on him. Sadly for the Leafs it was a poor excuse for 'payback'.
Even the most die-hard Leafs fan CANNOT believe that Belak won that fight. Janssen looked like he didn't even break a sweat. Then again never under-estimate the ability of a Leafs fan to see the world the way it ain't...
Great scrap. Obviously Belak was the winner, no question.
GREAT FIGHT... CAM "THE MOTHER F'ING MAN" JANSSEN
