not a fan of stortini, for how big he is and how willing (generally) he is, he's not very good. more respect for belak than stortini. i've already named what i'd think the most exciting fight would be (carcillo v. gratton) i think stortini v. hollweg would be the lamest fight.

Posted by ibled4theusa on December 31, 2008 at 02:51 AM

Belak showed code coulda blasted Zack on ice but stood him and missed.

Posted by brazos on December 29, 2008 at 02:34 PM

A lot of spinning and attempted punches but I could not see any that landed solidly. It looked like most landed on the shoulder or arm of the other player. Draw

Posted by zhang on December 29, 2008 at 10:36 PM

Stortini doge a few bullet at the end of fight.Good to see he is throwing.call it a draw for no one get any good punch.

Posted by dlbishop2213 on December 29, 2008 at 02:47 AM

what a digger by stortini hahahahaha that was hilarious,.... not sure about this one, Stortini doesnt look like a fighter when he does fight... Belak is a tough customer so... not sure about this one tho... Draw in my book

Posted by MajorGroove on December 29, 2008 at 02:15 AM

Ya know it looks like Belak TKO's him but I think Zack was more active. A nice scrap but I have to call it a draw.

Posted by bruins rule on December 29, 2008 at 08:19 AM

this fight was better than i thought it would be.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on December 29, 2008 at 11:23 AM

Haha at least Stortini threw a punch!!

Yeah, Big surprise here...

Posted by 2001GT on December 30, 2008 at 10:39 PM

Thats as good of a showing as Stortini has had against a heavy weight all year. Stortini is a perfect goon for Edmonton...he's greasy, ugly, likes hugging boys and isnt well thought of in the league. eat it Zack!!

Posted by youreapylon on December 29, 2008 at 11:59 AM

Edge to Belak, good showing by Stortini. Wade should be dropping them every game. I like more bombs from him in this one, usually sets up with the jab for ever.

Posted by SethM316 on December 29, 2008 at 02:41 PM

Has Stortini EVER won a fight?

Posted by bruiseyoureye on December 29, 2008 at 04:38 PM

stortini got rocked......he may be the worst fighter in the nhl

Posted by Leafs2006 on December 29, 2008 at 01:24 AM

Beeeeeelak.....toronna misses ya!

Posted by Jellyczar on December 29, 2008 at 06:21 PM

Stortini did better than I expected and Belak should have mopped him up and didn't. Slight edge to Belak. Stortini doing better each fight.

Posted by Gunslinger on December 29, 2008 at 09:10 AM

Stortini goes for the hug early and falls down. He's forced to then fight and surprisingly enough he does pretty well although Belak gets the slight edge.

Posted by Franchise on December 29, 2008 at 07:56 PM

Its hard to give anyone who fights Stortini a "win", because lets face it, The Tini is just plain terrible. Belak wins in this case.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 29, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Lots of swings, lotas of misses. Belak landed a few at the end. Gets the W.

Posted by Crooked on December 30, 2008 at 04:50 AM

hahaha how bout the spill at the beginning... almost as funny as phaneuf way back when.

Posted by ThemsFightinWords on March 15, 2009 at 04:55 AM

Stortini is totally useless.

Posted by Muscles on December 29, 2008 at 06:48 PM

Stortini's fighting skills appear to have improved; he landed some punches to Belaks' shoulder and forearm.

Posted by The DZA on December 29, 2008 at 01:18 AM

"2 heavyweights Lou"......false statement. I see one heavyweight, and there is no way in hell its Stortini

Posted by shrk33 on December 30, 2008 at 12:19 AM

Where is the hugging in this fight?

Posted by mike563 on December 30, 2008 at 09:54 PM

belak in the end

Posted by trpaulson on December 29, 2008 at 11:33 AM

Belak wins. He hammered Stortini down. At least Zack gave it a decent effort against one of the toughest guys in the league.

Posted by bouch19 on December 29, 2008 at 08:22 PM

I think zac has been reading this site. Last 4 or 5 he has been throwing em.

Posted by lowbrow78 on December 29, 2008 at 05:54 PM

Another Stortini special. Give it up Stortini, you are a joke!

Posted by mikebflorida on December 29, 2008 at 10:55 PM

Stortini did better than I thought he would but looked pretty sloppy and lost this fight to Belak.

Posted by chl37 on December 30, 2008 at 08:10 AM

close win belak. decent showing by stortini.

Posted by oilersfansylvan on December 29, 2008 at 01:37 PM

Gotta give Zack full marks for trying....HOLY UNORTHODOX though...

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on December 29, 2008 at 12:15 PM

im gonna stop watching huggys videos from now on. at least he threw this time. just sucks.

Posted by staceyb on December 29, 2008 at 05:47 AM

Zack Stortini = Riley Cote Belak should be a Flyer--they need him bad.

Posted by tonydomi1 on December 30, 2008 at 06:56 PM

Belak let him up then pounded him back down to the ice. Win Belak. Stortini needs to stick with the middleweights.

Posted by Jesticle on December 29, 2008 at 01:56 AM

two big guys swinging and missing

Posted by bruiser11 on December 29, 2008 at 10:54 PM

STORTINIWEENIE AIN'T A HEAVYWEIGHT IN FIGHTING TERMS, BELAK TOSSED HIM AROUND HERE

Posted by Crowdpleezr on December 29, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Big guys, big misses. Belak eeks it out.

Posted by sabersfan4life on December 29, 2008 at 09:18 PM

no fair thats was a miss match all the Belak did't have to beat down Storiti like thar

Posted by followthecode on December 29, 2008 at 11:04 AM

I guess the more you fight, the better you get. I thought Belak would clean up, but he didn't land anything until he got Stortini's bucket off, then landed a few. Win Belak.

Posted by DAVYDAWG1969 on December 29, 2008 at 06:45 PM

Stortini loses...again. Two thumbs up to Zach for actually fighting and not dry humping. Maybe he is reading these blogs and got embarassed and realized trying to impregnate a male player really wasn't working for him.

Posted by rowbearprobear on December 29, 2008 at 09:14 AM

win belak

Posted by BrianTheAdsFan on December 29, 2008 at 01:03 PM

Good to see Zack open up a little bit. Wade to strong for him at the end knocking Zack down. Win Belak

Posted by Juha82 on December 29, 2008 at 07:33 AM

Edge Belak, landing one or two more. Not much but hes winner.

Posted by pimking21 on December 31, 2008 at 01:49 PM

seems like stortini hasnt been huggng very much this year thats good to see. hes goin up against one of the toughest in belak. didnt win but hes got heart thats for sure

Posted by blackgoldfan on December 29, 2008 at 10:52 AM

i thought strotin would be in a little over his head with belak but if he could of kept his balance this could have been a draw. belak gets a few more landed for a "W". *also there was no huggin and kissin here either just a decent fight. stortini might be another candidate for most improved this year*

Posted by 5 4 Fighting on December 29, 2008 at 09:27 AM

it wasnt a hug fest by huggy bear Stortini...

Posted by wag_811 on December 30, 2008 at 07:13 PM

Zack is a heavyweight who is still learning how to fight with the big boys. He has improved alot this year and is throwing more than hugging, good to see.

Posted by Riley32 on December 29, 2008 at 04:05 AM

love how stortini dives in the beginning of the tussle lol

Posted by plubber on December 29, 2008 at 03:25 PM

Belak lands a few, Zack swings wildly and just gets air

Posted by smasham on December 30, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Belak pounds Stortini down at the end....

Posted by joeye4 on December 29, 2008 at 07:28 PM

Good tussel

Posted by omorales on December 29, 2008 at 01:45 AM

Win Belak, but Wow, Stortini improving looking to tangle instead of hug...he got in a few shots....

Posted by Sasky001 on December 29, 2008 at 11:24 AM

Belak handed Bikini his lunch at the end.

Posted by Heavy Right on January 01, 2009 at 09:46 PM

Soretinni OUCH!!!

Posted by b.t.wilson on December 29, 2008 at 08:22 AM

Edge to Belak but good job by Stortini not trying to make love. Got the clamp around his neck at one point but let go and tried to fire again. Much much better!

Posted by Shappa on December 29, 2008 at 01:50 PM

At least Stortini is throwing punches these days... Still can't win, but hey, at least he's got dangles right???

Posted by TIRE TIM on December 29, 2008 at 03:50 AM

belak wins landed more solid punches---by next year stortini might know how to fight

Posted by tiburon4 on December 29, 2008 at 06:16 PM

Belak just squeaked a win with me!

Posted by Belak_Norris on December 29, 2008 at 11:56 AM

Even b4 I saw the fight I knew Belak would have won! Ztortini actually tried to throw punches this time, but all of them hit Belak's arm!.. Is the announcer on crack? ya, Belak is a heavyweight but not Ztortini. He might fight them but when he always gets the s#it kicked out of him!.. Easy Win for Belak!!!

Posted by thebigbea55 on December 29, 2008 at 02:06 AM

nice win by belak... maybe stortini should go back to his hug..

Posted by tylerfennell on December 29, 2008 at 03:39 AM

Belak is the man, love him.

Posted by acd1 on December 29, 2008 at 07:38 PM

Belak crushed him.

Posted by kingpaolo on December 29, 2008 at 11:05 PM

Stortini is much funner to watch when he just throws em... close fight... but props to Stortini for chuckin' 'em

Posted by bloodchurn on December 29, 2008 at 04:03 AM

I love how Stortini's throwing them now.

Posted by tomales2 on December 29, 2008 at 04:37 AM

I thought that Belak would destroy Huggy2. Draw, I guess.

Posted by marinermoose38 on December 29, 2008 at 01:52 AM

Draw. Decent scrap, and all I have to say is Stortini's a beauty!

Posted by Hoju on December 30, 2008 at 12:20 AM

huggybear threw more punches in this fight than all his previous combined.... and still lost

Posted by gmr133 on December 30, 2008 at 03:18 PM

OK--new rule: no more videos of Stortini "fighting." This guy gives Andrew peters a run for his money in the biggest joke category. Belak is a tough mug--never really got his balance untill the end, when Zack started doing a 'stortini hug" AGAIN. Nice punch by belak at the end gives him the edge. Nice swan dive by stortini to start the fight.

Posted by Rick16 on December 29, 2008 at 01:01 AM

belak landed a few good shots and takes stortini down.. no doubt gets the win

Posted by NewMike on December 31, 2008 at 11:55 PM

Belak wins a close one with a strong finish. I've noticed that there is a direct correlation between the publishing of a recent letter to the editor in The Hockey News and Stortini's decision to open up his fights and move away from his hugfests of the past. The writer of the letter criticized Stortini for his style and pretty much called him an embarassment amongst his peers in the fight game. I have to imagine that a lot of players in the league read The Hockey News - including some Oilers, I'm sure - and that Stortini took it personally. Good on him for taking a chance. Last point: while Zack is a big dude that fights all the heavies in the league, I think he needs to actually win one or two fights before you can consider him a true heavyweight.

Posted by millerdvr on November 06, 2009 at 11:47 PM

StorWEENY with another poor performance, Belak treated him like his bitch!!!!!!

Posted by chad420 on December 30, 2008 at 03:16 PM

belak clear win..ZS has improved,but a "real heavyweight"...yeah ok

Posted by claire alexande on December 29, 2008 at 12:59 PM

easy win for belak, although stortini at least tries to fight. his glorious victories over capunk mike brown appear to have inflated his opinion of his fighting ability.

Posted by the tough 1 on November 08, 2009 at 03:23 AM

stortinis a pussy

Posted by BigTot on December 30, 2008 at 11:08 PM

Good Work Belak!

Posted by cdnputter on December 29, 2008 at 08:41 AM

Edge to Belak even with the couple of dummy shots when Stortini was falling at the end. Nice to see Stortini finally throw a few shots instead of hugging someone, wtf is that guy's problem?

Posted by ling2212 on December 29, 2008 at 08:08 AM

Belak won this fight. Stortini did not know what to do when someone did not want to hold on.

Posted by bltlord on December 31, 2008 at 03:17 PM

Belak destroyed him but props to Stortini for not puttin up with that bullshit

Posted by benzinnel on December 30, 2008 at 11:48 AM

almost a draw until the nice takedown
