Komisarek has no problem bullying younger and smaller players. He constantly runs, punches, face-washes and lays questionable hits on the non fighters but backs down regularly from the big boys. Reminds me of last season, the sucker punch he gave to David Krejci after the whistle and then him skating away immediately after Chara confronts him for it. Once a gutless punk always a gutless punk. But at least he has Orr, Mayers, Deveaux, and a few others to fight his battles for him this year.

If Komisarek would have not brought Staal up after the throw down, he would have had control. But Staal has become tougher in the last 3 years. After the punches were thrown, Staal, 20lbs lighter, just man-handled Komisarek. Draw for the football tackles. Kudos for both of them.

Komisarek is a punk- yeah beat up on Staal...where is LUCIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

Posted by Flyersfan4life2 on September 30, 2009 at 12:01 AM

Gave this fight a draw for a reason. Komi pulled staal up and immediatly started punching him. Seriously komi, your considered a tough guy. Do you really need a jump on staal? We'll see how tough he is when he has to meet with Rupp or godard. More or less Godard actually. Godards def top 3 tough guys in my book. Rupps getting there. And yes people, i am a flyers fan. Still hate the penguins, just hate seeing guys fighting non fighters and think there tough.

Crap non fight. More importantly, I would certainly believe that Pitts owes Komi some payback since Staal wants nothing to do w fighting.

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on September 23, 2009 at 09:04 PM

Bad decision by Staal to get involved in a fight

Honorable that staal take the beating for his girlfriend.

Komi in a win over a non-fighter. Who voted for Staal? This isn't hockey-tackles dot com.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on September 23, 2009 at 08:00 PM

Komisarek beat Staal .....nobody is impressed.

Posted by lb1631 on September 24, 2009 at 02:05 PM

Wow what a tough guy Komisarek goes after Staal. Drops his gloves and starts throwing. How come he didn't try Bissonnette

Posted by ddson on September 23, 2009 at 05:48 PM

clean win komisarek. pierre mcquire sucks every penguins' cock, i can't stand listening to him speak.

Posted by leeban on September 23, 2009 at 08:39 AM

Good thing Staal pushed Komi to the ice . he was getting rocked ! Staal coming in for his teammate to stick up for him was good. But Komi is too much for him.

Posted by MottHockey30 on September 24, 2009 at 12:16 AM

Fuck Jordan Staal.

Posted by big10drup8787 on September 24, 2009 at 12:12 AM

Komi kind of just bullied Staal into a fight.. I don't think Staal had a choice in the matter, because Mike Komisarek already had his hands on him. Komi is a big strong man, and he gets the win here. Good idea for Staal to take it to the ice.

Posted by EDDUBBS on September 23, 2009 at 08:56 AM

Komisarek pummeled Stall

Posted by atl17 on September 23, 2009 at 11:50 PM

good bout

Posted by Trebla8791 on September 23, 2009 at 01:01 AM

Komisarek taking on 2 at the same time? WOW! Then beating down Staal. I don't think he will drop the gloves with Mr. Lucic anytime soon though lol

Posted by gspistheman on September 26, 2009 at 10:10 AM

Komisarek pulled him up to fight, that was awesome.

Posted by Falconraptor on September 25, 2009 at 12:03 AM

XO XO XO. Staal is tossed here.

Posted by hydr4 on September 23, 2009 at 12:20 PM

Matt Cooke deserved the hit, why? He was skating with his back turned on Komisarek so that he couldn't hit him. He put himself purposely in a dangerous position to get hit, hence one reason for the misconduct. Komisarek, doing what his bench tells him to do to get ice time and win hockey games, hits him and gets the puck. Staal disagreed because his teammate was down, sticks up for him like a player should and hits Komisarek blindsided. Komisarek takes exception to this since it was a more dangerous hit by Staal since he wasn't expecting it. This calls for a fight, Staal has to answer the bell.

Posted by DAVYDAWG1969 on September 23, 2009 at 08:36 PM

Komi is still a bitch! After watching Lucic beat him like a redheaded stepchild last year, still dont like him. he loves to take a run at a smaller player but cant back it up when the big boys call.

Posted by lily_flower2004 on September 25, 2009 at 08:29 PM

Staal's not a fighter..he just defended himself..komi is a loser

Posted by JaCort16 on September 23, 2009 at 11:39 AM

Honestly, Komi is a bitch. For the simple fact he got put on his ass by a guy who did not want to fight. Hahaha, I mean he cheap shot Cooke, and then Staal comes in and he cheap shots him, I don't think he realized how strong the 21 year old is. Yeah he got a punch in on him, but I mean, Anyone can hit someone when they aren't trying to fight. I give the win to Staal for the simple fact he wasn't going to fight, didn't fight, and still put Komi on his ass. Classic case of someone who did not realize how strong someone else is.

Posted by bruiser11 on September 22, 2009 at 10:42 PM

Komisarek is a gutless player when it comes down to a real challenge. funny last year 2, when lucic beat him down, then of course laraque has 2 chase lucic 4 Komisarek many morea nights, asking him to go!..laraque might as well have threw a shot at another bruin to get lucic 2 go in those instances, because Komisarek and Lucic was not laraque's beef ! toronto is fun 2 watch but they ain't going nowhere anyway!

Posted by bruiseyoureye on September 23, 2009 at 10:12 PM

win staal

Posted by matlc on September 23, 2009 at 08:53 PM

Komisarek took advantage of Staal who has fall on the ice. Komisarek remove his gloves and took advantage of the fight when Staal was laying down the ice, not ready. That was not fair, but Staal just turn it over after he was up. Komi under. Staal win.

Posted by laineo21 on September 24, 2009 at 12:20 PM

Komi is such a bitch.

Posted by Mel91192 on September 24, 2009 at 10:45 AM

I just love how Komisarek goes for the little guys! then a punch by staal then komisarek so its even but staal on top got to give it to him for standing up for is teammate

Posted by hoser777 on September 23, 2009 at 12:44 AM

thats what stall gets for rushing in with the elbow. dragged up off the ice and beat.

Posted by gmr133 on September 23, 2009 at 01:23 PM

Not a fight. Cheap shot by Komisarek on Cooke. Whether or not Cooke deserves it is another point. Still a cheap shot. Staal jumping in to help. Komisarek is going to prove he's tough by running Cooke from behind and dropping the gloves with Staal? Don't think so. Draw.

Posted by piney on September 25, 2009 at 11:53 AM

Stahl has no business fighting. that said he did get up off the ice to face an aggressive larger guy. didnt seem like anything significant landed.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on September 24, 2009 at 09:46 AM

hate both players, staal...donezo

Posted by dfergin on September 23, 2009 at 11:41 AM

I, for one, LOVE watching any "Pen" get their arse handed to him. Staal tried to play 'posssum, but Komisarek was not having it. Classic...drags him off the ice and feeds him 3 - 4. Love. It.

Posted by insanity_plea on September 24, 2009 at 12:23 AM

LOL at all the Pittsburgh fans... Komi wins hands down... he even picked up Staal to keep beating on him. Learn the game... fighting triggers your team (hopefully) and in most cases who cares who's fighting... if you think you'd lose than bug off... Staal could've stayed turtled, but he got up... geez

Posted by JayRosehill on September 23, 2009 at 01:16 AM

Komi with the clear win. He didn't want to cheap punch Staal on the ground, so he picked Staal up and then pummeled him.

Posted by H.i.t.m.a.n 514 on September 23, 2009 at 03:58 PM

KOMISAREK WIN....and shut up whit your lucic LARAQUE VS lucic the little bruins player die
