cote is not a fake heavyweight even laraque himself cote is the toughest person he fights wow whitney beat redden what a win for him

Posted by Cadman747 on April 14, 2008 at 12:41 PM

All this for Crosby , what a waste of time.

Posted by BehnWilson3 on April 12, 2008 at 11:47 AM

Hey Battle Axe,your a hypocrite,complaining that Crosby's name is brought up when he didn't fight,then why do you always bring up BGL's name when he's not fighting,grow up "HOMER"

Posted by Eric Godard vs. on April 21, 2008 at 06:58 PM

crosby is such a pussy the only guy he has ever fought was like 5-7 (ference) man up crosby try defending your self for once Iginla for mvp Phaneuf for norris go flames go

This site is for grading and giving opinions on hockey fights. What you think about any specific team means nothing here. Stick to the fights.

Posted by Behn Wilson on April 10, 2008 at 11:45 AM

For what it was, clear win Whitney. Redden just never got it going, and was eventually punched to the ice (generally resulting in a loss, except at playoff time, of course).

Posted by rpalmer120 on April 11, 2008 at 11:08 AM

I thought the Scuderi thing was very funny AceWilde! those little things are what make Avery, Maltby, and 22 such hated players. Doing those types of "little" instigating things are what makes for some of the best angry hockeys fights. Not this tap you the guy on the butt that you just tried to knock out crap. I like good sportsmanship, but c'mon.

Posted by slapshot2626 on April 10, 2008 at 07:55 AM

Wake up Wade...gotta throw a few to land a few.

Posted by mikebflorida on April 10, 2008 at 10:35 AM

Typical Pittsburgh fight. Someone looks at Crosby the wrong way, much less hits him and the whole team rushes in like the Big Bad Bruins or something. It's pretty funny actually seeing all the visored pu$$ies runnin around and throwing gloved punches. For a second I thought I was watching an NFL game with all the facemasks. The Senators show me no grit what so ever. They laid down for the Pens who spanked them. It almost seems like they don't even care or something. In the good old days, a guy like Neil would have just started throwing punches at anyone but grabs Crosby? Why? To make sure he doesn't get hurt or something? Jeeeez That game sucked, unless you're a Pens fan.

Posted by rayrayaj405 on April 23, 2008 at 03:16 PM

I can not believe the hating going on against the Pens. Ovechkin the best??? At what propping up his recliner??? Changing the channels?? Best hockey player at golf??? Cause those are all of the things he is doing now. If he was the best his team would have pulled that game out. But they or he didn't. It should have been his overtime goal to take the caps on to the next but he didnt. So the Pens are still in. The protect their stars and the swept Ottawa. Quit hatin' on the Pens. Hatcher isn't going to do shit to Sidney because his old ass will get dealt with. Philly is going to get beat regardless of who the play next round. The just are not that good. Pgh will beat the Rangers in 6 and move on to the next. Suck it up all you haters. Could someone tell me the last time Philadelphia won a Championship in anything? Anyone. Go Flames LOL You mean go home Flames. cause that were they are heading LOL

Posted by yoach on April 11, 2008 at 09:31 AM

Crosby keeps doing that and he just might get his ass kicked . Whitney pretty much owns Redden in this one . Then again its hard to land a punch when your looking at the ice .

Posted by PFLY64 on April 10, 2008 at 06:31 PM

penguins, most over rated, crosby will disappear faster than lindros, why is it that penguin fans are so arrogant with how good they think their team is, from out of business to the greatest team ever, and it only took how many lottery picks, hopefully they meet the flyers so that the flyers will beat them just like the regular season

Posted by sidewinder3001 on May 14, 2008 at 01:17 PM

Not even close, Whitney pumled him the entire time and then added the finisher at the end.

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on April 10, 2008 at 08:32 PM

Whitney with the win. More then the fight is the class act Neil showed by not destroying Crosby. We will see Neil and BGL before this one is over.

Posted by The Peach on April 10, 2008 at 11:52 AM

whitney lays it down. but did you see neil swoop in to protect crosby? is he auditioning for a job with the penguins? im sure the coaches chewed him out, not letting crosby throw another rabbit and draw the extra penalty

Posted by Chronicous on April 11, 2008 at 07:09 PM

Props to Redden and Neil for backing off and not wiping the floor with Crosa. No-one wanted to be the one to take him out, gotta feel a bit sorry for him when he looks like he wants to go no-one wants to take him.

Posted by kingpintoo on April 15, 2008 at 10:59 PM

Redden was a woman! Wait, my daughter would have fought harder than that.

Posted by kalismkkr on April 12, 2008 at 12:27 AM

win Whitney

Posted by Flyers0292 on April 10, 2008 at 08:06 PM

crosby is such a little bitch

Posted by downtwo22 on April 13, 2008 at 04:13 PM

Good, Nice KO.

Posted by Scott4 on April 10, 2008 at 12:59 PM

Easy..easy win for Whitney.

Posted by aces50 on April 12, 2008 at 01:14 PM

Way to step up when liberties are taken by Redden on Crosby. Whitney mopped the floor with Redden.

Posted by trpaulson on April 13, 2008 at 12:00 PM

It takes both Redden and Neil to gang up on Crosby. Couple of real men there. Good for Whitney for pounding on that jerk Redden. Maybe in this series there's some more missing teeth for Neil in the picture.

Posted by mshatc on April 11, 2008 at 01:35 PM

Jersey over head, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose

Posted by Luke77 on April 10, 2008 at 10:49 PM

whitney with the win, I think its funny how all of u pittsburgh fans bash cote he is one of the only fighters in the league who will stand there and go toe to toe with anyone in the nhl,when was the last time your boy BGL went toe to toe with anyone,when brashear stopped him from that spin s@** he does and landed one shot to his jaw he dropped,and another thing blutto1313 when was the last time pittsburgh even went to the cup 1989-1990

Posted by bigpucks on April 10, 2008 at 12:45 PM

Whitney showed the world he has a pair. Redden writes a check he can't cover. Redden lucky it was Whitney or he might be DOA

Posted by buddha on April 10, 2008 at 06:11 AM

Nice to see Whitney come to Crosby's defence. Redden deserved what he got.

Posted by SirYohans on April 13, 2008 at 03:29 PM

How do u clearly lose a fight to Ryan Whitney? ...Ask Wade Redden, he's the only man on earth who knows how to answer that question.

Posted by hogguy2000 on April 10, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Flyers suck!!!

Posted by beter06 on April 10, 2008 at 05:47 PM

Wit steppin in for the young captain..and if any of yinz heard that jaggoff sports columnist from the ottawa sun don somethin, sayin something along the lines of Slash crosby ankle like a bunch of goons that make the sport hard for super talents to strive. Or laraque calling him stupid, this sports writer called georges to say it to his face...enough said. how does that fine from the NHL feel Redden?....

Posted by mikeyfreake on April 10, 2008 at 09:49 AM

I'm a sens fan and I have to say I'm suprised this fight was 100% Whitney. Sidney proves that he is the cry baby players claim him to be, starting shit and waiting for someone else to finish it. And what's with Neil making love to Crosby there while someone on his team is gettin a shit kickin?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!? I hope next time he comes to his senses and either fights Whitney (or whoever) himself or at least throws Sid the cry baby around. Ridiculous...

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on April 10, 2008 at 01:00 PM

Redden is brutal. This dumb-assed COKEHEAD sucks and has been dragging this team down for years. NOONE in the league should be afraid of this doucebag. he even tried the "C'mon" wave to Whitney. then gets his ass handed to him. his hands are open and throwing slaps. then his fingernail or something cuts Whitney. and he's usually to blame for the turnovers and bad passes. what a loser. can't wait for this guy to leave so onother team can pay for his drugs. and his buddy Emery.

Posted by seanw on April 11, 2008 at 06:49 PM

team toughness! its about time.

Posted by Humper on April 10, 2008 at 08:47 PM

I dislike the untouchaable aspect of Crosby's game, but that's to be expected. If Whitney hadn't of kicked Redden's butt, then some other Penguin would have.

Posted by SJsharks1090 on April 10, 2008 at 04:28 AM

Whitney controls and lands some solid shots... Redden just takes it

Posted by McGoon on April 10, 2008 at 12:43 AM

Sorry red, you got your behind kicked. But at least Whitney was bleeding out his eye.

Posted by NDNTUFFNESS on April 14, 2008 at 02:33 PM

whitney with the win... redden didn't have a chance with his jersey over his head like that...

Posted by hockeytown11x on July 05, 2008 at 05:58 PM

Not bad. Whitney got him ok. Not too bad of fight.

Posted by Fitzy3523 on February 21, 2009 at 09:43 PM

go pens

Posted by thepolishkid88 on April 10, 2008 at 09:36 AM

I was behind the boards and couldnt see how badly Whitney was pumling Redden but after watching it confirm my thoughts. he dominated reddens head. Gary Roberts board and then scrum in the tunnel was awesome.

Posted by DigitalGypsy66 on April 10, 2008 at 07:38 PM

Whitney, one of the least physical defensemen in the NHL, pummeled Redden. Even as a Pens fan, I feel Redden should be ashamed.

Posted by HeyImIrish on April 10, 2008 at 10:23 AM

Whitney absolutely dominated Redden in this one. Like others have asked....how could ANYONE vote for Redden....did he even attempt a punch?

Posted by Flyersfan4life2 on April 10, 2008 at 11:48 AM

Penguinsfan123, Whats hilarious is before the last game you guys only won that because the NHL is blowing Sidney Crosby. The refs made 2 horrible calls, and missed one call that would of put us on a 4 min power play. I think the season series was 5-3 flyers? Yea thats right prick. You call cote a fake heavyweight, its kinda sad that you think that when BGL said "he is the toughest guy pound for pound". If cote was a "Fake Heavweight" then he shouldnt be winning fights against heavyweights. Good try clown on talking smack. Any other pens fans want to try?

Posted by battleship bob on April 10, 2008 at 09:56 AM

obvious win by Whitney....

Posted by creeperama on April 15, 2008 at 10:48 AM

First of all, Penguins suck. Crosby is not the best player in the world. Alex the Great, from washington is the best. Crosby is in his shadow. I think Pitt is better without Crosby, and just Malkin. Crosby is a little cry baby biotch. Pittsburgh better hope they dont meet the Flyers in the playoffs. Or their dream is over. Hatcher will throw Sid the Kid around like the baby he is. Tell Big George thank you for the nice comments on Cote. Pound for pound the toughest fighter in the league.

Posted by TheBomb413 on April 10, 2008 at 04:41 PM

Well I think its safe to say that its either an Ottawa homer or a typical Philthadelphia fan who voted for Redden here. Seriously, there is no need for this stupidity. Whitney in a total domination. The old rule in hockey is don't touch the star players. Why do you think Gretzky remained so healthy throughout his career? Good job Whit, you did what you are supposed to do, and what many others in the league fail to do.

Posted by Ragtop1day on April 10, 2008 at 08:14 PM

Probably gonna see this again...and again....and again.....probably see BGL and Mr. McGrattan before too long....

Posted by MORTAL KOMBAT on April 14, 2008 at 06:40 AM

redden cant fight for shit

Posted by Chilleo on April 13, 2008 at 12:52 PM

WHitney with an easy win very unexpectable from such a passive defensiveman

Posted by J.R. Abel on April 10, 2008 at 03:35 PM

Wow, that was a beat'n. Redden is an idiot. What did he think was gonna happen if he starts throwing punches at Crosby??????? Good thing Laraque, Ruutu, Roberts, (or anyone who has dropped their gloves more than once in their career) wasn't on the ice at the time.

Posted by Murdamore on April 10, 2008 at 07:40 AM

Redden deserved what he got after acting like he played for the Filthadelphia Flyers. Three points for Whitney for sticking up for Sid and actually throwing his weight around.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on April 10, 2008 at 04:48 PM

Whitney whipped some Ass!!

Posted by razor 32 on April 10, 2008 at 10:56 PM

Redden should not have touched the franchise. He got his but handed to him. Neil did not touch Crosby because big George would have kick the crap out of Heatly, Alfredson, and Spezza by himself.

Posted by neiljc on April 10, 2008 at 09:08 AM

That (insert slur of your choice here) Redden got what he deserved. He is the weakest, most pathetic excuse for a defensemen I have ever seen, taking pussy shots at Crosby like that. What surprised me was the whooping Whitney laid on him. I would have expected someone else, but considering the only other choice on the ice was Pascal Dupuis, good choice by Whitney. He said on the radio he won't make a habit of it, but that's what Michel Therrien needs to see out of him. Almost forgot, Phillips and Commodore really put on a defensive display too......not! This sets the tone in a big way and the Senators deflated guns haven't a prayer against the likes of Crosby, Malkin, Hossa, Sykora, the whole team. It is nice to see a Pittsburgh team finally filled with talent in all defensive pairings and all four lines. Domination Whitney.

Posted by ICEMAN66 on April 10, 2008 at 09:16 AM

Whitney was nailing Redden with his left hand (while holding his jersey) and landing with his right hand too. This fight wasn't even close. You Flyer fans have as much brains as your Flyers have talent. In both cases "NONE" is the answer.

Posted by Red Rover on April 12, 2008 at 12:11 AM

whitney, not even close, lets hear all the excuses for redden

Posted by crashandbang on April 10, 2008 at 06:36 PM

Some of you idiots on here wouldn't know a hockey stick from the one up your ass.Crosby is the man! It's not his job to fight retards, that's why we have the undisputed heavyweight champ BGL around, to take care of the guys that think there tough. Whitney laid a beating on that useless punk Redden.As for Neil he woulnd't fight George if McGratten was standing right there.Flyers fans are about as bright as a 2 watt lightbulb, goons and losers!!!!

Posted by NE MPLS on April 14, 2008 at 12:10 AM

Good scrap... Whitney sticks up for his team's star and Redden doesn't back down when he knows he has to fight. Clear win Whitney.... If there was no instigator penalty Crosby wouldn't have to worry about getting hacked like that... BJL would go after ne one who got cheap with him.

Posted by chainsawman on April 10, 2008 at 07:55 PM

total domination by whitney, kinda like the last time the flyers made it to the stanley cup finals.....when the wings mopped the ice with their candy a**'s !! whitney destroyed redden just like Laraque destroyed Cote and like Roberts hammered that tool Egger. I hope after the Pens get rid of the senators they get Philly so they can crush them !

Posted by powerball on April 13, 2008 at 09:03 AM

better to be whipped by whitney than destroyed by BGL or Roberts. Roberts beat that punk flyer ben eager all the way to chicago.

Posted by RustyTrombone on April 12, 2008 at 04:19 PM

Whitney's a big dude who should fight more often.

Posted by AceWilde on April 10, 2008 at 06:00 PM

Does anyone know what Rob Scuderi was trying to accomplish at the end of the fight by trying to knock Foligno's helmet off? I keep trying to read his lips but can't make out what he was saying. Funny stuff by Scuderi.

Posted by solid19snake on April 10, 2008 at 09:11 AM

Ryan Whitney, what can I say? Personally, he's my least favorite Penguin and has been inconsistent all season. However, this being only his 4th NHL fight, I'd say he won pretty convincingly! Let's Go Pens!

Posted by kano4156 on April 10, 2008 at 06:26 PM

the only thing that is going to come from this for the sens is it allows their coach to keep running his mouth. lets see what he says before the next game

Posted by mal12one on April 10, 2008 at 06:34 PM

thats what whit needed to do especially on a night where he was not playing his best hockey

Posted by wmellott on May 16, 2008 at 09:09 AM

Just another show of how much more dominate and fast the Penguins are over the dirty playing Flyers! The Flyers are constantly playing dirty and hoping it pays off. Obviously not with a 3-1 series going back to Pittsburgh! I can hear the Flyers fans crying still "Why not us!". Not you because you guys have no "real" talent!

Posted by BattleAxe13 on April 10, 2008 at 04:31 PM

This is what happens when you mess the Sir Sidney, the captain, someone hand feeds your own @$$ back to you. Much to my surprise it was Whitney but hey he did what needed to be done. And here we go with the Sidney bashing on this site, did Crosby fight? No, so why other than pure jealousy would you bring him up in your comments??? Jealousy, sorry that the Pens have the best hockey player in the world and your team doesn't.

Posted by bluto1313 on April 10, 2008 at 06:26 PM

The zipper on your pants is called a fly, right? That's why they call them the Flyers. If your from Philly, get someone to explain it to you. Losers since 1975!!!!

Posted by mjb_17 on April 10, 2008 at 04:03 PM

That was a beating.....Sens fans you wanna know why Neil didn't do anything to Crosby or any other pens player, cus he knows he would get his ass handed to him by BGL, that's why he didn't do anything. That is also why Ott will go another season without the cup!!

Posted by hockeyhitter79 on April 10, 2008 at 08:37 PM

win whitney, way to step up for your captain here, who new he had it in him i also want to know who voted for redden

Posted by Mac00203 on April 10, 2008 at 03:25 PM

Redden looked like John Stevens after his wife pulls his blouse up over his head to tickle his tummy at night. FLYERS SUCK. Pens are gonna win the cup. Pens showed nothing but total domination the whole way through the game.

Posted by capeman93 on July 22, 2008 at 02:36 PM

yup yup yup

Posted by chelios247 on April 10, 2008 at 02:07 AM

Is it just me or does it seem like Redden is fighting for a job?

Posted by ROCK HAWK on April 10, 2008 at 02:23 PM

mikemcmo... 5 being the highest i hope ? ty , just checking. BTW..shouldnt there be a H and an O after the mc in your name ??? sorry, couldnt resist. I hope for the sake of this site the Flyers get a chance to play the Pens. F STL

Posted by penguinsfan123 on April 10, 2008 at 09:20 AM

this is hilarious flyers fans still crying about crosby when were not even playing. the flyers are lucky the pens scrapped the last game if not they wouldve been done in 5 now they get to play 6 in washington before going home, hopefully not though because i always enjoy laraque beating the shit out of cote (the fake heavyweight)

Posted by Coach Jay on April 10, 2008 at 02:02 PM

Whitney pounded Redden to the ice, then Redden hops up looking for more. Sucks that they broke this one up so quickly, but I guess the NHL doesn't want too much fighting in the playoffs. It would have been nice to see this fight go for awhile.

Posted by troyt on April 11, 2008 at 02:06 AM

well as a minny fan i guess im suppose to hate pit for what they did in 91' but unlike 80% of people on here they dont vote with their eyes! i give the win toooooooo Ryan Whitney! and why is Cote even brought up in this? why is philly fans talking trash? Shouldnt you guys worry about #8 on Wash? PLEASE judge the fights the way they should be, not the way you want them to be!!!!!!!

Posted by Wolf_eyes on April 12, 2008 at 03:22 AM

I like the kid's scrap. Also, win for Whitney.

Posted by biglite351 on April 10, 2008 at 07:10 AM

Whitney did NOTHING all game so he fought in an attempt to not be scratched for game 2. How could anyone vote for Redden as the winner of this one? Seriously...?

Posted by PittPens1787 on May 17, 2008 at 10:57 PM

Haha, I think it's time for Redden to change his name and leave the NHL, he just got his ass handed to him by RYAN WHITNEY!

Posted by laraque-iz-bad on April 10, 2008 at 04:02 PM

If you guys haven't noticed, this is a way to rate fights between two guys, not a soapbox to share your opinions on which team you like, which players you don't like, etc. No one cares what you crybaby flyers fans think. Get past the Caps first before you start talkin sh*t. When you have someone on your team that could even qualify to hold Sid's jock, come talk to me. Otherwise, shut the f*ck up!
