You guys really need to watch the fight, yea burrows should have taken of the visor but still, if you watch closely he slips on a stick and then a glove, thats why rolston gets the take down, clear draw!!!!!

Posted by dgreen1355 on February 16, 2008 at 12:52 PM

I can't stand when I see fights rated (or should I say having a winner) when they end in 2 seconds or less. This was not a fight, it was 2 featherweights slapping and falling instantly.

Posted by mikebflorida on February 15, 2008 at 09:48 AM

Burrows is a piece of crap. Garbage fight.

Posted by mike598 on February 19, 2008 at 01:05 AM

Wow did Burrows just make Willie Mitchell hold his purse! Watch close for the part near the end when poor Willie stands there and asks for his manhood back. I think we might have to rethink who's pitching and catching in this relationship. Draw: And nobody cared except the wives who are all worried now.

Posted by dukeofearle on February 18, 2008 at 09:46 AM

Weak. Rolston gets jumped and then tackles another Jobber with a visor trying to start a fight. Draw. A puss with a visor fights a guy that doesn't fight. reaaal cool.

Posted by Riomouse911 on February 18, 2008 at 10:43 PM

For once, a fight ensues after a cheap hit from behind instead of a decent open icer. Burrows did exactly what every teammate wants, got Rolston's attention, as this was Mitchell's first game back from a back injury. The lame-ass comments are amazing. Draw, for no one landed a punch worth mentioning.

Posted by Bagratid on February 16, 2008 at 04:36 AM

Wow, I'm becoming more and more convinced that hockeyfights is stacked with Wild fans. How did Rolston win that? As much as I like Rolston as a great all round player he didn't win that fight by any stretch of the imagination. He cheapshotted Mitchell with a really dangerous hit, Burrows went after him. Burrows threw the only punches then slipped/fell/takendown. Draw

Posted by babybulls211 on February 15, 2008 at 04:27 AM

Good for Burrows to step up, Rolston cheap-shot Burrows when he got the take down....... i vote a DRAW......

Posted by SirYohans on February 15, 2008 at 01:55 PM

Guys, Is this a win for Rolston because he never fights & got jumped by a guy wearing a visor? It certainly can't be a win for landing punches... Cause I didn't really see any. DRAW

Posted by bostonrs555 on February 15, 2008 at 10:13 PM

Tanks for Nottin Burrows, and hey, don't do me any favors.... DEEERAW!!!!!

Posted by Jordybats99 on February 07, 2016 at 06:45 PM

Spirited Draw.

Posted by Ragtop1day on February 15, 2008 at 10:00 PM

would have liked to seen this one go a bit longer to see the outcome...they probably will go again someday.

Posted by mike tyson on February 15, 2008 at 06:57 PM

Butchie23? Are you saying that Burrows is the 2nd coming of Iginla?

Posted by brookbanktuff on February 15, 2008 at 01:05 PM

haha Burrows is hilarious. Rolston needs to mellow out, the guy is an idiot acting like he's gods gift to hockey. As a Canucks fan you can usually expect to see one of Burrows/Cowan/Cooke get beat up on any given night.

Posted by Xeshybrid on February 15, 2008 at 01:33 PM

I Dont know how people can vote for Rolston in that fight, it wasnt much of a fight but it looked to me like Burrows dominated, he threw all the punches and then they both fell over with Rolston on top. Rolston didnt even get a clean shot in. I think theres just Canuck haters out there that just dont want to vote for Burrows. You got to explain to people how the voting process goes, you dont vote for who you like, you vote for who won the fight.

Posted by pauleolithic on February 15, 2008 at 12:39 PM

Why was Rolston so upset? He gave Mitchel a cheap shot from behind and put his head into the boards. You give it, take it you whiny bum. It's not like Burrows beat him up.

Posted by mrunohoo on February 16, 2008 at 12:39 PM

So Daniel Carcillo got 20 minutes last time he pushed a linesman, Rolston gets an apology. Looks like you get rewarded for being a puss nowadays.

Posted by Bieksa on February 16, 2008 at 04:05 AM

Good friend Burrows !

Posted by nuckles88 on February 16, 2008 at 12:48 AM

What is there alot of minnesota fans on this thing? haha Burrows two solid punches before they both fell to the ice. Its ridiculous that they gave burrows the instigator he was only protecting his player, throw out Rolston for throwing a cheap hit from behind then wining that the other team decided not to put up with it.

Posted by hfxbob on February 15, 2008 at 07:38 AM

Burrows for throwing them quickly. Doesn't Rolston get something for shoving the linesman? How is that any different than Antropov throwing his stick at the refs the other day?

Posted by Crazy_Canuck on February 18, 2008 at 09:39 PM

I don't know who said rolston won the fight but they were wrong, burrows connected way more than rolston, and good too see him standing up for a guy that just returned to the lineup

Posted by Brandoo on February 15, 2008 at 01:11 PM

who the hell said rolston won he didnt even get a hit in ?????????????????????????????????? like common people dont vote like idiots

Posted by MeLikeSemenko on February 15, 2008 at 12:44 PM

hate visorboys that drop - be a man burrows

crappy fight case close.

Posted by decams on February 18, 2008 at 10:45 AM

Typical Vancouver play, picking on the non fighters!

Posted by jw_gk on February 15, 2008 at 06:30 PM

All I have to say is nice visor, douche bag

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on February 15, 2008 at 03:29 PM

I guess I should give props to Burrows for attempting to stand up for Mitchell... The dumb thing about it is that Mitchell very well could have taken care of himself, and Burrows really just made a fool of himself. I can understand you're pissed off because you think your buddy got a raw deal when somebody took him to the boards, but have some respect for yourself and for your opponent(s). If you're going to go after somebody, take your fucking helmet off if you've got a visor. You didn't get jumped on, you did the jumping. There's no excuse here. Fighting with visors is for pussies. And you, Mr. Burrows, are a big, wet pussy. What is it with the Canucks and drafting little assholes that think they're hot shit? Seriously.

Posted by BooSanta on February 15, 2008 at 02:52 PM

Instigating with a face shield, a big time punk move. If the 3 punches Burrows threw landed more convincingly then It might not go Rolstons way. Bottom line Burrows throws the punches Rolston scores the tackle and Burrows gets docked for instigating with a face shield. Spoils Go to Rolston.

Posted by craig51697 on February 15, 2008 at 03:07 PM

niether are good fighters

Posted by R_Wick33 on February 15, 2008 at 03:37 PM

Win to Rolston for the choke out after the take down

Posted by butchie23 on February 15, 2008 at 08:10 AM

Burrows is another one of those tuff guys while wearing a visor. The league needs to stop that shit.

Posted by elgermac on February 15, 2008 at 12:40 PM

I hate the canucks, and Burrows lost this fight and deserved the instigator, but Mitchell is just coming back from injury (broken vertebrae) and had some question from management or coaches about why he didn't come back sooner, so good on Burrows to step up for this particular teammate. I'd take Burrows on my team any day as he is a pest to play against. Rolston knew what he was doing when he gave Mitchell an extra shot, all the Wild targeted Mitchell in this game, Burrows was just saying "back off"

Posted by manofsuper22 on February 15, 2008 at 03:06 PM

Rolstons 2nd fight ever!!

Posted by roundhouse4u on February 16, 2008 at 05:59 PM

blowrrows should rememeber to close his hand and make a fist next time he tries to slap somone. rolston could of been 90 years old out there and he still would of won. he just lucky the boogey man wasnt there. he would of shuved his fist right up blowrrows a## and worked him like a puppet.. but in my opinion there is guy who is a bigger pussy than blowrrows and that is matt cooke. he can talk it but he cant walk it. he can sing it but he dont bring it. man up if your gonna cheap shot everybody.

Posted by johnnygoodtimes on February 15, 2008 at 11:16 AM

I give it to Rolston no question. Yes Burrows Instigated- where was the call on that? Burrows is a no talent visor wearing hack- I'm waiting for the rematch on Tuesday.

Posted by mikerrobes on February 15, 2008 at 08:43 PM

Burrows is a punk. I'am surprised he didnt slash Rolston behind the kneecap first....since thats his thing

Posted by novisorsallowed on February 16, 2008 at 01:15 PM

Burrows is a pussy.

Posted by MNBonecrusher on February 15, 2008 at 07:51 AM

Rolston is NOT a fighter, but DAMN, I guess Burrows must be a real bitch! No big shots landed but Burrows got manhandled.

Posted by MackMittens on February 15, 2008 at 11:45 AM

I respect Burrows heart for coming to the aid of a team mate like that but he clearly took the L here. Johnnygoodtimes:"Yes Burrows Instigated- where was the call on that? " underneath the fighters listed it says he received an instigator.

Posted by BruinLeader on February 15, 2008 at 06:18 PM

Crappy misconduct. I think this is the type of fight the NHL should promote.

Posted by emanresu on February 15, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Rolston - no contest. Jumped by Burrows, fought against a visor, and still had the upper hand.

Posted by Miniack on February 15, 2008 at 06:57 PM

Mitchell has a broken vertabrae in his back and Rolston drove him anyway, Burrows is a little guy and was just reacting. It's not Iggi Jovo or something, dropping visors and all that. Burrows just supporting his team mate.

Posted by Wild Crazy on February 15, 2008 at 09:20 PM

As a Wild fan, this is a first to see him even scrap with someone. I was surprised but happy to see that he's not the wuss I thought he was. Hope to see more fist-A-cuffs from our slap-shot King!!

Posted by JOCCOCHRIS on February 15, 2008 at 10:26 AM

Burrows is a pu$$y with a visor and got worked from Rolston.

Posted by njteech on February 15, 2008 at 08:36 AM

Brian did ok

Posted by JCobra67 on February 16, 2008 at 04:01 PM

Burrows is probably my least favorite player in the league. He sucks as a player, he sucks as a fighter, and he's possibly the biggest cheap artist in the league. He always goes after non fighters. I still can't wait for the moment when Morrow is going to beat Burrows face in for that stunt Burrows pulled in the playoffs last year. He skates up behind Morrow who is out of the play and slashes him in the leg. Burrows skate away and hides on the bench behind Cowan who is also a complete pussy. I think I just hate the entire Vancouver team because I can't stand Cowan or Bieska either.

Posted by TheAsianator on November 27, 2008 at 11:02 AM

So Burrows you go after Rolston and Bouchard. Wow you might as well be the biggest loser. Especially for wearing a visor! Win for Rolston for beating the little sissy

Posted by Heavyweight2 on December 01, 2008 at 10:54 PM

Burrows is a cheap bitch for going after Rolston.

Posted by Wild24 on December 03, 2008 at 09:22 PM

Burrows is a p*ssy!!!!!!

Posted by DaBomb1 on December 07, 2008 at 10:50 AM

Burrows is a p*ssy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by cambec on February 15, 2008 at 07:32 PM

burrows...any chance you read these? You are quickly becoming one of the biggest punks in the game. Some of your actions on the ice show such little respect for others that it is amazing that you would jump anyone, but then again, you jumped a long time veteran who hasn't fought since his rookie year. I respect your hockey skills, I despise your lack of respect and cheap attitude!!

Posted by Minndrunk on February 15, 2008 at 11:15 PM

Burrow tries to be a tough guy by fighting non-pugilist Rolston, who hasn't fought in 13 years. But Burrows can't even land anything against old-man Rolston, who takes Burows down quickly. A pathetic attempt. If there was really a reason to fight, Mitchell could have done better. No great showing by Rolston, but he was at least better than the pathetic Burrows.

Posted by Sasky001 on February 15, 2008 at 07:17 PM

I'd like to give Burrows credit for standing up for a team mate - but when you can't beat up a guy who is afraid of his own shadow.... miketyson - Are you the real Mike Tyson, or do you just have the same IQ as that rapist? A couple differences between Iginla and burrows: 1. 35 goals/70 points per season. 2. Iginla doesn't pick his spots. 3. Iginla would not lose a fight to Brian Rolston. 4. Burrows plays on a team that hasn't won the Stanley Cup (that is the trophy a team gets when they win the NHL (National Hockey League) playoffs) in 37 years and counting.

Posted by dsavaloja on February 15, 2008 at 01:31 PM

I am surprised there wasn't a weapon used by Vancouver (i.e. stick to break leg !!) or an attack from behind. Typical Vancouver MO. Burrows was way out of line on this one. I am glad Rolston stood up to him and actually won the fight.

Posted by TrevynPaige on February 15, 2008 at 10:48 AM

Burrows is a cheap-shot nancy and got owned even though he was wearing a visor and got the jump on Brian. Sissy.

Posted by ISUcorndog on February 15, 2008 at 07:21 AM

BUrrows is a little biatch. Rolston isn't a fighter,but he took him down. the refs missed a penalty: rule 75.2 (4), Alex Burrows should have gotten an extra two for instigating the fight with Rolston with a visor

Posted by WildFan31 on February 15, 2008 at 05:07 PM

puts a smile on my face. nice takedown for rolston, but not much of a fight. DRAW.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on February 15, 2008 at 04:57 PM

Rolston with the Edge. He landed a solid uppercut. Rolston isnt a fighter. Burrows just starts throwing punches none of them landing. Burrows wears a visor and fights, what a pussy. I like how the Canuck announcers make it look like it was all Rolston's fault. Anyway these guys were teammates for god sake, and do people really consider rolston as a "big hitter" give me a break.

Posted by RhonaMitra1 on December 19, 2008 at 02:31 PM

Edge Rolston

Posted by Wildfan01 on February 15, 2008 at 11:07 AM

bad fight, but Rolston doesn't fight. Gets the win for knocking him down. I thought it was amusing.

Posted by jRooTes9 on April 07, 2008 at 10:21 PM

no punches landed by burrows rolston just tackles him

Posted by blackngold on February 15, 2008 at 07:03 AM

My boy was jumped and still didn't take any... damn Burrows sucks at this fighting thing.

Posted by crazybubs on February 15, 2008 at 08:16 PM

Burrows took exception to a questionable hit, though he stepped on a stick before really getting going... wild homers are useless.

Posted by hrngmprd on February 16, 2008 at 11:45 AM

Wanna be men who fight with visors are pussies. I agree with wearing a visor to protect your eyes. What I don't like sre these girly-girls who have to fight with them on (iginla included). I've seen some fights where both parties take off the helmets.

Posted by STL13 on February 15, 2008 at 05:44 AM

In this quicky it's Ralston by a small margin. He got jumped, responded nicely and shouldn't have even gotten a fighting penalty. There should be a 1:00 self defense penalty...hahahah

Posted by Boogeybacker on February 15, 2008 at 05:11 PM

ROLSTON GOT THE WIN FOR HAVING NO VISOR, THE WILD NEED BOOGAARD BACK TO STOP THE CHEAP S**T THAT TEAMS KEEP DOING TO THE WILD, I HOPE BOOGEY IS TAKING NOTES WHILE ON THE RECLINER, CAUSE FEDORUK WONT STAND UP FOR NO ONE.

Posted by boogeymanfan24 on April 05, 2008 at 12:00 AM

for Rolston not being a fighter he did damn good!

Posted by AllDayAP on January 12, 2009 at 08:35 PM

Clear win for Rolston
