Belak shoves Sutton to the ice along the boards. Sutton gets back to his feet and exchanges words with Belak, resulting in the two dropping the gloves. They grab ahold of each other and Sutton throws a right to start things off. Belak returns fire with three of his own. Sutton responds with a flurry of six straight rights to Belak's head and body before Belak can answer back. They keep their distance from each other and go back and forth with long rights that come up short for the most part. Belak connects with a body shot and an overhand right. They then decide to hold on until the linesmen are ready to intervene. Other Penalties: Kris Newbury received an unsportsmanlike conduct.
Sutton with the win.
Just a shake the Jersey dance.
Draw, Belak stinks.
sutton is such a goofy ass lankey pickle puffing bitch
Blah, dissapointing for heavyweights
Draw, or win for Sutton based on the fact he had better positioning. But he didn't "punch his helmet off" he pulled it off, they way some people seem to see these fights is hilarious.
Despite a lack of big blows, I liked the fight. It was two guys who know that they're doing. Both tried throwing, landing a little, but both guys were effectively locked out by the other. Hockey fighting at its most technical. A draw
Spirited but a draw.
Good showing by both players.
Not a great scrap, but OK. Sutton did a very good job, GO GO ANDY!! They didn't land really much of a clean punches. Their punches comes mostly shortly to the mark or grazes to other. A draw. Btw, i agree Headcharge as he said that the hockey fightning is mostly about technical.
Belaks a bitch.. but sutton didnt get anythign in either
I say draw due to lack of damaging punches. Two tall guys locking each other out. I'd always been curious about Sutton's skill as a fighter after seeing him regularly as a Thrasher vs my squad. He did just fine vs a noted heavy in Belak. Good to see a huge guy show some nasty to go with his imposing size. Belak's obviously looked better............an upset here
Sutton should get some more practice in.
belak rocks ni
edge to sutton
Not for nothing who wrote the Comments part "Sutton with a flurry of six straight rights to the head and body" In which fight was that, certainly not the one they just had. Sutton sucks and Belak is terrible
Good fight in terms of how each player approached it. The only place it really fell short was the fact that Wade Belak just can't seem to connect when he swings his arms. Sutton clearly gets the win on tthe basis that he actually punched Belak at some point during the fight, while Belak just kind of punched at air.
barely give it to Sutton because he actually made contact (note the left jabs and the rights taking the helmet off belak) where as if belak made any contact with any of his punches, it was to the...arm? As an Islander fan, i've been wondering how decent a fighter Sutton actually was...not Eric Cairns (who would have loved to go after Belak i'm sure) but nice to see him at least hold is own.
Was that a heavyweight tilt??
Sutton wins by a punch. Both these guys can do a hell of a lot better.
Belak never landed a single punch, and Sutton got in one or two good shots when he knocked Belak's helmet off. It looked like Belak was bleeding on the side of his head. Sutton is the obvious winner.
whatever punches landed were suttons put a w in the win column for the isle
Belak sucks. Sutton won. leafs suck/
belak is pretty crappy other than old man domi when was the last good fighter the leafs had?
Belak is becoming less and less impressive each fight . . . .
To much jersey holding for my taste. Sutton looked like he connected with a few and Belak looks like he missed every single punch. Win for Sutton. That business of holding the jersey and guys swinging and not connecting is really lame.
Belak's a stone punk
Nice little scrap by some heavies giving the edge to Sutton for the left hand rabbit taps and a couple good rights.
Not one of Belak's punches landed. Sutton landed maybe one or two shots. Decent scrap. Sutton gets the edge here.
sutton and belak everyone knows belak is tougher but the way sutton held himself and landed 2 or 3 good ones i gotta give it to him
Not a bad fight between two big boys! I have to give the edge to Sutton becasue he tagged Belak a couple of times and it didn't appear as if Sutton got hit with anything significant.
Seeing as I live in Toronto (Originaly from good ol Tennessee) i like the "Buds". Good toss overall. Little bit of an edge to Belak. ;)
This was a DRAW. Neither guy did any damage at all. Not too many punches were landed by either guy. After the fight Belak continued to bodycheck Sutton hard into the boards every chance he got. This was Belak's first fight since last year. Belak will be better in future fights, but give Sutton credit. He's got great reach, he's bigger than Belak, and he kept Belak from landing any big shots.
