At best a draw. BGL is quickly becoming LGL especially after hiding under his mothers dress against Chara. George is getting good at wrestling with people. Gotta be some kind of problem here.
the whole "top fighter" title they give to laraque is bullshit the guy swings people around i wanna see a fair fight once in a while this fight was weak belak was willing to go straight up, but laraque did what he does best... btw thats not fighting...
BGL is getting lazy in his fights and his skating. I can see why Gretzky wanted him gone...
Laraque got scared and just tried to tie him up and get him to fall. Draw.
Draw. Larockhead is such a piece of crap. If not for the Penguins employing him, he'd be sitting in a jail cell in Manitoba. For you Pittsburgh idiots, that is a province in Western Canada. Canada? That is the country to our North
I want to see ol' Laraque swing away, but that'll never happen cuz he's a lefty and can't leave himself open for someone like Belak to come in with a heavy right. Decent scrap for the heavies, but I call it a draw
Surprised how well Belak does in this fight to earn a draw. Never been very impressed by Wade's fighting skills, but he put up a good one here.
Not a bad showing by Belak, but I'd still call it a draw.
nice show by belak. landed a few, didn't get embarrassed. laraque looks more and more disinterested in fist fighting. maybe he wants to be pro wrestler.
Draw in a shit fight i hate when BGL holds on to a guy and stops fighting
I was surprised by Belak. And I think Laraque was as well.
good fight. draw. typical GL spin dance.
bad fight for BGL, quit spinning and punch already! Lame showing for BGL against a lesser opponent
Sure wish Laraque would just go toe to toe and throw em . Getting a little tired of the same old doh see doh spinning around crap . Nobody should be afraid of Laraque unless they have motion sickness .
I have to admit that Laraques last fights have been garbage! Hopefully he is saving it up for playoffs.
Draw. I didn't see either guy land enough to win. Nice job by Belak when he had the jersey over his head, he could have got worked but was able to throw them.
Man i hope we dont keep georges here next year all he has proven is that hes a wrestler the pens need a heavyweight.Not a bad fight though belak must of gotten over the broken nose thing from a year or so back he did pretty good.Honestly though ruutuu and malones fights have been way more entertaining this year and malone has good skills with the puck.
Draw. Some punches from both sides, but more like Heavyweight Wrestlemania.
Good for Belak...hopefully some Leafs management were watching this fight...still can't believe they traded him....what a waste...now they're getting pushed around by players like Hnidy...pathetic...
Solid DRAW. Good showing by Belak in his first Pathers scrap.
Too close to call, a draw. Some good punches thrown between swinging each other around.
Pretty good scrap. Belak hasn't had a fight in a long time. He hung tough. Belak does not lose too many and he always takes on the best. Yes, that is his natural hair color, goon10. We will miss him in Toronto. He was always there for his teammates and was a great guy in the room.
Good fight with both guys landing some good blows. Nice to see Belak show the Florida fans why he is there. Taking on Big George to start off in the new city. Close fight, gotta give it a draw.
Good for a Laraque fight.. I guess. Draw.
Belak hung in there and stood his ground. He controlled the fight and was busier than Laraque. Belak fought like he had something to prove and Laraque just fought.
good scrap, i called it a draw. BLG is one guy who never fights cheap or breaks the code.
Ok fight. BGL got the heavier hits in and Belak got more of them.
Draw, maybe a slight edge to belak for accually landing puches.
Laraque got going with lefts early. Belak came back after knocking Laraque's helmet off with a left of his own. Belak then fires away with rights even though his jersey is up and over his head. They both then try to hit each other with jersey jabs. Belak throws a few more rights and he falls. Laraque could have thrown a few while Belak was down but gave the fellow veteran enforcer a break. Again Laraque did just enough to not lose. Draw.
Pretty good back and forth exchange. Belak did much better than I expected. Draw
Another great fight, thats how you win the fans over right away, good job Belak.
Pretty good fight both landed some good shots
both throwin some good bombs,not to much connection ,nice little dosey-do they were doin out there its a draw
A good fight, a draw IMO. Laraque never seems to be all that into fighting, probably because he could pummel 95% of the league, but Belak is a worthy opponent. You could tell BGL wasn't angry, as he was content letting the fight get tied up even when Powder was flailing wildly with his jersey up over his head.
I called it a draw. Really good scrap.
This one is another of those fights where you might give to BGL for controlling it. Throwing more landers but Belak has some fight stealing rights pop up throughout making this into a draw. Very few can get that helmet off. Laraques back swing that threw Belak off balance seems like an afterthought and made him look like the winner but since the Panthers got more riled up about this to score seconds later I'm going to go with the draw on this. Good long fight. Don't get me wrong Belak threw alot here to but most hit air. Still I wouldn't want to get hit by those shots
I give this one a draw, but i think its funny how all you BGL haters try to call him a "bitch" or a "douchebag" when he's like 6'3" 243 and can kick every last one of your asses. He wins fights, period. You cannot find a better and more consistent fighter in the entire NHL.
great fight all around...i still hate laraque i think hes joke to this league
laraque didn't land any good punches, Belak did, Belak gets the win.
Funny how most see Big Dumb Laraque as the best. He is the best wrestler out there for sure. And he's good a weighing more than most of the guys he "fights".... I've said it before and I'll say it again, he is not the best fighter. I can think of at least 6 guys I'd take before him. Belak wins this and he would'nt be one of the six I take over BDL.... So what does that tell you??
Belak wins. He landed more punches and did his damndest to make a fight of it. Big George seemed to quit halfway through.
BGL is a douchebag! He is everything that is wrong with hockey. 5 years after hock he will be in prison.
Big George isn't top 5 anymore! He doesn't even fight, he just spins you on a merry-go-round. I've been waiting to see BGL fight lately and he disappointed me again. How many punches has he really thrown all year? If punches=hugs, he is #1
belak caught him with a nice one on the chin,you gotta watch it in slo mo on HD tv,but it wasnt that bad a fight,but i give it to belak for the best punch.
BGL took that one home with the takedown
Another George Laraque wrestling match. Georges is not the best fighter in the NFL, he is just the best WRESTLER. If I want to see a guy get put in a headlock and spun around, I'll turn on WWF
typical Laraque trying to muscle an opponent to the ground, but this time he ate a few. Slight edge Belak
Good fight! I like the way Belak stood up to Laraque as most guys are a little too hesitant against him. But not Belak, he is just as big and hung in there nicely... he tagged Laraque with the better shots.. Giving the win to Belak here.. Maybe BGL threw a few more, but hardly anything landed as it was clear that Belak landed a few... not damaging, but still landed the better punches.
Slight edge to Belak. Laraque always tries to get guys off-balance... just stand and throw!
BGL is quickly becoming the most boring fighter in the league! All this guy seems to want to do is wrestle and tie his opponents down. I was actually looking forward to watching this fight. should have known better!!!
Great showing by Belak.
A long wait for this one, slightest edge to Belak though.
Either a draw or a slight edge to Belak. Belak was much more active and as soon as Laraque felt challenged he went for the tie up.
Belak better this day than George....
I hate Laraque and his fighting style stop all the spining. way to go wade close fight but belak with the slight advantage.
Good fight edge Belak
Give it to Belak by virtue of punches landed. As usual George is gentleman and doesn't blast Wade when he was down and in perfect range.
Belak just because laraque wanted to wrestle instead of fight at the end as a matter of fact thats all he does is wrestles thats why i never give him the win
Laraque had more strength in the fight but didn't really get any huge shots in Belak Got the best of the Puches in Edge Wade Belak.
Good Fight Belak Landing more.
I give Belak the win. BGL always has trouble with Belak. BGL previously stated that Belak was his toughest opponent.
WIN BELAK!!! laraque is such a bitch...as big ans strong as he is he cannot take a shot...the first sign he may get hit he goes into hug/wrestle mode... belak nailed him and he tried all he could to wrestle him down...
Edge to Belak
Belak with the win. If you're going to steal a win from Laraque, that's how you do it, knock his focking hat off and nail him. Belak landed even while jerseyed.
I am not a Belak fan, but he won, plain and simple. Belak was busier and landed better and more often. Laraque was challenged so he did what he always does in that case; Holds on and hopes to get it to the ground.
Gotta give the win to Belak. He must be excited to finally be on a somewhat competitive team.
Whoever calls this a win for Laraque is either a Belak hater or enjoys sucking on BGL's nutts. Edge Belak, the underdog steals one easily.
I'll say draw for now. There was nothing that stood out for me to give either the win. THE ICE APE GOT OUT OF HIS CAGE & IS PARADING THE STREETS OF FLORIDA. Lock all windows & doors or he might eat your pets. GO BELAK, GO BELAK OK, I lied... I gave this to Belak. ATTENTION: To all who argue: "YES, He's CAPABLE of knocking someone out" & "YES, BGL is 6' 3" 240 & maybe can kick all our assses..." But I have a feeling he'll just spin me around & let me off easy so I'll take my chances. P.S.-And why even mention that? BGL doesn't even wanna fight on the ice where "fighting is legal," U think he'll fight a fan in an "Anything Goes Street Fight?"
Belak outworked Laraque, this with the sweater over the head.
belak landed more punches...my vote to belak...
laroque was hitting shoulder. belak got some good shots in but got spun around at the end. disappointed that laraque ended the fight that way. Decision Belak
Belak is the man for going big
Laraque should be on dancing with the stars.
Belak is back on a team that will let him fight!
Belak had the quantity and quality of blows on his side. Laraque held his ground, but could get no offense going. Belak wins.
Great showing by Belak!. Didnt let Laraque wrestle him down once he had the advantage. Got some nice punches in there, and withstood the super ballerina spin by Laraque. Way to go Belak!
Laraque tires out , Belak with the win at the end. Lucky Belak didn't tko his a **.
belak handled himself very well against laraque.
Win for Belak over one of the best in the league, i hate Laraque!
Belak wins this one despite the fact that Laraque wrestles him to the ground. Belak wins because he landed more shots. He landed at least 2 big punches. I didn't see Laraque land 1 punch in this fight. When's the last time you saw Laraque lose a fight? Belak is the man! laraque-iz-bad: What are you smoking? Watch the fight again man. "but he (Belak) got smoked with a few hard lefts and didn't land a punch at any time." Obviously you didn't see the front page of this site you moron. I'd say he landed MORE punches than BGL. Again, win to Belak. Of course your gonna vote for your boy. Look at your name dude. I'm sick of biased fans like yourself ruining this site with your horrible calls.
Close fight, was hoping for a rematch
Not a bad tilt. Glad BGL knows the code, and doesn't throw a single punch after he throws Belak down - unlike so many newer scrubs in the league who probably would have kept throwing. Anyway this was a draw, though I could see the edge going to BGL. The best punches of the fight looked like the left-right-left combo BGL threw as he knocked off Belak's helmet. And yes, irishVagbrian, nobody in the U.S. gives 2 sh*ts about Manitoba and your racist ramblings. Go spew your mess on the Winnipeg Jets message board... Aww = ( Yeah, I went there.
How did anyone vote for Belak here, oh yeah the Laraque haters again. I can understand draw but Belak? at what point did Belak have any control in this fight? They threw about the same amount of punches but Laraque actually landed more and stayed on his feet. That looks like a win for Laraque to me. Wow this site really sucks, too many idiots that don't know what a fight is.
to kocurfan26 ... STFU and go get your shine box PUSS
Everyone want BGL. He wins this by a nose. Belak started the spin o rama with BGL. You guys got a lot to say, but I see not to many take any cheap shots at Syd the kid or Malkin. Must be the rest of the NHL is scared of BGL.
meh, belak held his own.
Laraque landed more punches Belak threw more maybe landed one or two. Belak fell. Only a slight edge to BGL.
bgl has to get back to this part of his game
Slight edge to Laraque. He landed some nice flush shots at the start and it looked like Belak was little gun shy during the bout.
no problem for laraque
Very close bout but that one punch knocking the helmet off makes this one for Laraque
Slight Edge to BGL. Belak is legit Heavy poeple Don't want it with him. Florida got a steal. It was nice to see a Laraque fight actually end with him on his skates. Laraque wins a very close one.
George landed the cleaner shots, Wade is king of tieing up and throwing wild and praying something lands
Tight fight, but I gotta give the edge to BGL.
Very close fight. Both guys land some good shot. Give the edge to Laraque but good performance of Belak.
Laraque with the slight edge. It's amazing the amount of Laraque-haters out there. How quickly we forget that he pounded Brashear, Cote, and really has not lost all year. I'll agree he is not as dominating as a few years ago........but he's still the best until someone beats him.
DOES THIS GUY EVER LOSE???
Homer of a play-by-play guy -- the hit that knocked BGL's helmet off was barely a graze -- active scrap -- BGL's early connections were the most impressive of the tussle -- slight edge there.
Belak was throwing them but i doubt Laraque broke a sweat
Laraque's fights aren't always entertaining, but nobody can beat him. He gets the win here.
Good Fight , but im a Laraque fan . But i do agree that Big George does tend to just wrestle and pull his opponents to the ice. Win : Laraque But none the less i still think that Big George is the Champ.
best I've seen anybody do with BGL....good bout
Nice tilt. Some bombs thrown with a few landing. Belak had a nice showing for himself against the top dawg. I guess when you look like Belak does you'd better be able to scrap!
Laraque is the best fighter in the league. End of story. The object of a fight is to hit the other guy and not get hit. All the guys saying just stand there and throw them have never been in a fight , i bet.
nice showing by both guys.
Too Many BGL haters. Belak did nothing in this fight. Easy win to BGL
A very good fight. Laraque landed two big punches early of the fight as Belak replied with big punch that hits to the back of Laraque's helmet and got his helmet off of his head. But Laraque landed better punches(to the side of Belak's helmet/earhole). Laraque does nice tying up work later of the fight as Belak was active of the two. Maybe Belak would deserve a draw but i give edge for BigGeorge.
Big Laraque with the another win!! Still skating with the belt!! props to belak for hangin in there though. Looks like there are alot of Laraque or Penguins haters on here doin most of the voting.....no way Belak should have more votes than Georges!! GO SABRES!!!!
Belak put in a very good showing, but give it to Georges for controling most of the fight. nice to see Laraque actually fight someone rather than just hugging it up
close, but BGL for the win
edge laraque, to many haters out there
I dont know how Belak is winning in votes. As far as i see the fight was close to a draw, but if i was gonna pick a winner, it would be Laraque. The hits were even, but laraque got the takedown, Belak definetly wouldnt get the win.
Very entertaining fight. I can't remember the last time I saw Laraque fight this way. Laraque landed better punches and had more control during the fight, like when he simply held on and waited for Belak to get the jersey off his face before they started fighting again. I'd have to give the slight edge to Laraque but that certainly doesn't diminish how well Belak did, thats the closest I've seen anyone come to BGL in a long time and I certainly don't fault the people who say Belak won.
props fro belak going out there and fighting such a tough guy and did pretty good maybe cuz laraque for once didnt take the easy way out and wrestle again
good back and forth action, but win laraque
gotta give belak credit but bgl is still the best. bgl is the only fighter in the league who is capable of putting an opponent to sleep. go pens.
a good fight for both players i give it to laraque they both landed some big punchs but in the end Laraque won very close fight
Face reality, BGL is the guy all of you want on your home town hockey team. Yes he dances, yes he wrestles but at the end he rarely loses a bout and many times that left paw using some ones face as a punching bag is the result. Can some of these other stiffs go toe to toe with him yes but he creates the "Fear Factor" for all of those jaws waiting to be hit with one of his lefts. The slap nut from Winnipeg must be dating the sheep again (they have rear view mirrors in Winnipeg I've been there) is of course another BGL hater for no good reason. If you had a f'n team in that tundra for 9 months of the year you'd kill to have BGL on it. Wake up and look in the rear view mirror ay?
win for bgl,all belak could do was hit to bgl shoulder maybe landed a weak one here and there,go bgl.i think some peoples who are voting is really stupit or a red nick,we shouldn't hate anybody,just give our honest opinion.
considering how tangled up belak was I will givw this one to wade
How anyone can even suggest either guy won is beyond me. This is a 100% draw.
I expect better from these two
Great fight ?? huh?? the fight sucked. sign them up for the pairs competition Im DiZzYYy. draw
This is a clear draw - I'm not sure which fight some people are watching.
good fight, draw
Is that Balek's real hair color or did he dye it for the trade? Draw.
Good fight by two absolute beasts. Can't really call it in favor of one or the other.
Laraque sucks. He is a huggybear takedown P*ssy, or a spinarama queen when he is getting hit.
Belak trying to stay in the league! Can't hide in TO now.
This site is so goddamned ridiculously biased for this mediocre at best bum Laraque. NEWSFLASH: HE LOST THIS FIGHT!!! HE IS A WRESTLER!!! HE IS AFRAID TO STAND AND THROW WITH THE HEAVYWEIGHTS!!! All of you pole smokers who blindly voted for him AGAIN should watch some Kocur, Probert, Domi, Twist, Fotiu, or Nilan fights to see what a fighter really is, and get off the bum's knob for five minutes
Edge to Belak. Steps up. Lands. Momentum to the Panthers, they score seconds later.
SLIGHT WIN FOR BELAK!!
I was at this game and at the time I thought Laraque won it but after reviewing it here i have to give it to Belak. he seemed to land more effective bunches than Laraque
I give a very slight edge to Belak. Why do fighters like BGL and Brash only throw when they have a CLEAR advantage? When they can bully the other guy around, they throw 'em, but when they're not dominating the fight, it becomes a wrestling match. Are they afraid to take a punch? Is that really what a legit heavy is about? IMHO, guys like DJ King & Cote (who doesn't win them all, but isn't afraid to throw down with anyone) are the LEGIT fighters in the league.
win to belak, bgl is afraid to trade shots with another heavy weight , what a surprise
BGL edged Belak
I'm impressed- Laraque actually threw punches. I thought all he did was hug and then wrestle guys to the ground.
It was good to see BGL do more than throw three punches and jump on the guy's shoulders for the takedown. But what was that spinning around at the end? BGL gets the win, though Belak did alright.
hiding against chara boy are you a clown paddyd you can ask anyone and its the other way around now for this fight it wasnt laraque's best but im glad someone went with him unlike the bruins game where everyone was hiding
laraque landed punches.....belak hit air, and his helmet once, win laraque
Decent scrap, watched it about 10 times. Laraque definitely landed the bigger shots. The little rights to the back of Georges head at the end by Belak did nothing because his arm was partially tied up. So not really anything behind them. At least 3 good lefts by Laraque landed. Gonna give a VERY slight edge to Laraque.
laraque clear win. laraque could of destroyed him but let up.
Laraque is the champ. Look at the difference between how crosby got tossed around last season and how he is treated this year by other teams.. messing with laraques team is like steping on a pitbull's pupy.. Your always look over your shoulder to see if its coming. win laraque
Laraque with the win cuz of the way he was throwing belak around.,
Here come the Laraque haters! What does he have to do for u idiots to give him the win. That fight easily goes to BGL. I give Belak credit for tying up the big man a little, but he got smoked with a few hard lefts and didn't land a punch at any time. Win Laraque! Quit basing your vote on what the Panthers announcers say! PS - IrishBoyBrian - Come to Pittsburgh and mouth off like that, tough guy!
Very close fight..... props to Belak for going toe to toe and holding his own. Narrow win to Laraque as he was the last standing.....
