this fight sucked. it was clearly a draw. they both had one good hit each. but i agree with lgbar75. the linemen should have stopped the fight so they saves themselves the embarrassment. clearly a draw

Posted by lgbar75 on February 10, 2009 at 07:01 AM

Both guys had the death grip on each others sleeves here and the linesman nearly stopped it. Reitz actually landed the best punch of the fight, a looping right that nearly knocked Clarkson down, but Clarkson gets him bent over at the end and scores the takedown. Draw in a lousy bout.

not much going on in this fight.

Posted by RykerHC on February 11, 2009 at 04:00 AM

Yeah, I'll give this one a draw, as well. Reitz landed a good one in the middle of the bout, and then Clarkson prevailed towards the end of the fight, but still didn't really throw enough to tilt the scales to his side.

Other than a lot of hugging, not a whole lot of anything...though Clarkson did punch the crap out of Reitz's shoulder pad. Draw.

First 10 seconds looked great, then....? Not much, maybe a couple landed. I scored a draw. Rangers are sinking away. Will they even make the playoffs? They're so desperate, they are going back to Avery. The Stars really miss him. Maybe they just want some fashion tips. The Rangers highest paid players (overpaid?) consistently lack intestinal fortitude. If they win, they win. If they don't, there's a great party somewhere in the big city.

Nothing more thana draw.

Posted by SirYohans on February 10, 2009 at 02:29 PM

I loved the square-off in this one, but that's about it. The fight was mostly grappling for position. Reitz ended up getting in a few short weak shots while Clarkson looked to connect best with a late uppercut. I'll go DRAW overall here in an uneventful bout. But giving the edge to Clarkson is not out of the question. I was tempted and just might change my vote myself. Wow, "WildFan4Eva." You are a true homer. So Reitz really sucks now huh? He was outstanding when he was on the Wild, Right? "MCB789," you don't notice that your record player is broken. BTW, you are soooo lucky that Riley Cote is undefeated this seaon, or people would be ripping into you. Or are you an Isles fan and don't wanna admit it for some strange reason.

Who cares, Asham would beat the sh!t outta both of em. Draw.

Posted by huddles on February 10, 2009 at 10:14 PM

draw homers.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on February 10, 2009 at 08:40 AM

didnt like this fight at all. Reitz looked questionable a couple of times. Once it looked like he tried to gouge Clarkson eyes, and another looked like he head butted Clarkson. Give this one a Draw

Posted by ilovenyr on February 10, 2009 at 04:27 PM

Hmm, Reitz. Yeah I think you should have just let Mara do his own dirty work. I think he would have fared much better than you.

Posted by MajorGroove on February 11, 2009 at 10:56 PM

Yeah they ended up throwing a couple but mostly a hugger. Spent most of the time giving each other a massage. Scored it a 5 and a draw.

Posted by truitt on February 12, 2009 at 06:59 PM

draw...not much but arm holding

Posted by mvmuck on February 11, 2009 at 10:51 PM

ok reitz needs lessons thats all

Posted by bruiseyoureye on February 10, 2009 at 12:15 PM

reitz with the win here.......clarkson is a candy ass

Posted by bradass81 on February 11, 2009 at 11:10 AM

God clarkson sucks. This guy never lands a punch and just holds and trys to get a take down. Reitz with win.

Posted by dcmac on February 11, 2009 at 06:06 AM

I gave it to Reitz he landed the more effective blows.

Posted by Snot-Bubbler on February 10, 2009 at 10:20 PM

Clarkson has definitely improved from last year, and the year before. But he still is a clown, with "sean avery" envy.....well, he's shaking now because Avery wants to kick his as.s, and avery is a better player. Yeah I said it.

Posted by grousegrinder on March 01, 2009 at 07:13 PM

Reitz had better hits, Clarkson rabbit punches don't count. Clarkson sure holds sweaters a lot, he should take up 2 step.

Posted by jealeman on February 11, 2009 at 02:16 AM

Wow...this was a horrible fight...I'd give Clarkson the slight edge...but not much in terms of a fight...

Posted by wildfan4eva on February 10, 2009 at 01:20 AM

Reitz sucks a fat one...god am i glad he's outta Minny, have fun watchin him lick the nutsak in fights all year

Posted by JDForCommish on February 10, 2009 at 11:30 PM

closer than i thought it would be, maybe slight edge for Clarkson but neither really connected with anything

Posted by giantsfrey on February 11, 2009 at 02:12 AM

why is mara such a pussy? why does another player have to come in and do his fighting? its not like mara is a great player that they can't afford to have sit in the box. he's a big D man who loves to hug and make friends. this reminded me of when little kovalchuk was punching Avery in the face and then mara came in and broke it up. he should just play basketball not hockey anyways, the fight was a clarkson win. nothing real special, but a clear victory

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 10, 2009 at 11:12 PM

Clarkson looked better than his usual Janssen self, but the jersey lock limited the action. Bombs at the end won it for him. Did someone just suggest (snicker) that Cote is undefeated this season, or am I having an acid flashback??

Posted by staceyb on February 10, 2009 at 05:37 AM

Don't see the replay yet but as I recall Clarkson challenged Mara who declined so Reitz jumped in. Got to admire Reitzy for sticking up for his teammate but eventually Clarkson bested him. Wow, did the Rangers stink up the place last night. Sean Avery, line two.

Posted by mcb789 on February 09, 2009 at 11:59 PM

clarkson with the easy win in this bout. no contest, RANGER FANS SUCK!! RANGERS SUCK!! BRUINS SUCK!!!

Posted by Belak_Norris on February 11, 2009 at 11:45 AM

At first it looked like a BGL fight with wrestling and attempting a few sh#tty punches, but it opened up at the end! Win to Clarkson because of the end result, but other than the last few seconds of that fight, it was a draw, but still, win for Clarkson!

Posted by runky on February 10, 2009 at 11:23 PM

Clarkie throws them and surprises a lot of folks but this was pretty even with a slight edge to David for the pound down at the end.

Posted by moneybags on February 11, 2009 at 02:33 AM

clarkson with the eventual win.good scrap

Posted by chad420 on February 12, 2009 at 06:42 PM

what a mary fight..a 2..a draw

Posted by gmr133 on February 11, 2009 at 10:24 AM

Crap hugfest--they each land one or two shots after hugging for hours. Draw.

Posted by azjim on February 11, 2009 at 01:30 AM

Draw. I must not be watching the same fight "doc" is. I didn't see Clarkson landing all those punches anywhere but on Reitz's shoulder pads. The best punch almost put Clarkson on hs ass. Behn Wilson - Relax, it's called sarcasm. Yohans was addressing mcb, and you need all sorts of tools to communicate with the mentally challenged.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on February 15, 2009 at 02:47 PM

I gave Reitz the win, because he actually landed a few shots.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on February 20, 2009 at 03:25 PM

good ol rangers devils

Posted by dropkick25 on February 10, 2009 at 11:42 PM

Pretty close,nothing major landing,slight edge to Clarkson for control and landing a couple more,good to see reitz showing some fight with his new colors,hope it doesn't wear off .Rangers need some passion,and some goals.

Posted by Oil Can Henry on February 10, 2009 at 09:30 PM

Clarkson comes-on at the end for the win. All 3 officials need to back further away from the fights -- they're very close to getting in the way of the combatants and at risk of causing injury.
