wannago, you're a punk aren't you? you're just mad the US beat Canada in the juniors. you say the only guys we have is kane and kessel...... this proves you know nothing about hockey. look up the US roster for the olympics and see who else we have. sure we don't have the quality players canada has, that's because most players in the nhl are from canada..... i think i speak for all of the US, fuck you.

Everyone on this site makes me laugh...domination Nash??? I did not know you can get a win for smacking the back of another man's helmet. both landed one clean punch, the rest from Nash were helmet punches which honestly probably hurt him more than Backes. This is a no brainer, draw in a crap fight, props for Nash for sticking up for himself, but win for Nash??? What a joke! You people need to get a life, career or a new hobby.

Posted by PuddlePirate on January 13, 2010 at 03:29 AM

Crap fight. Nash missed most of the punches. Any he landed hit the helmet. Easily a draw.

Posted by bboyer on January 13, 2010 at 07:46 AM

Draw nothin much landed

Posted by jjjakes on January 14, 2010 at 08:03 PM

Bunch of tools out there voting for Nash.

Posted by usmcaaron on January 13, 2010 at 01:47 PM

Nash may have thrown more punches, but with the linesmen and refs jumpin in between, Backes quit. If they went unimpeded, likely a much different story. Draw.

Posted by doomstang on July 21, 2010 at 10:54 PM

I was at that game....Johnson and Commodore got tossed for starting a fight after backes and nash were already fighting

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 31, 2015 at 04:08 PM

Decent Little Tussle. I think it was a draw.

Posted by tovar on January 13, 2010 at 06:29 AM

lol backes is on 'warpath' against Team canada.....

Posted by dmac1983 on January 13, 2010 at 09:18 AM

@ tovar, completely agree. I wonder if Brian Burke said something to Backes along the lines of "you better get in the faces of the canadian players if you want to be on the olympic team". I wouldn't be surprised by that at all, especially when Toronto doesn't have any Canadian Olympians, as far as I know.

Posted by briggsy on January 13, 2010 at 06:10 PM

Crap fight. Edge Nash for throwing more.

Posted by hawkfanlm on January 13, 2010 at 08:44 AM

Nash probably won this one, but I love how Backes has picked up the intensity in the last couple of weeks. He is a key part if the blues want a playoff push.

Posted by Ripper20 on January 13, 2010 at 12:24 PM

What's the deal? Big Captain can't take a clean hit? He gets the win here, but learn to respect the game. A clean hit is a good hit, it doesn't warrant retaliation or a fight. You just took yourself out for 5 minutes, how smart is that?

Posted by Sasky001 on January 13, 2010 at 01:22 PM

Backes has finally accepted his role as a plug.

Posted by bluesrule08 on January 13, 2010 at 12:47 PM

i gave the win here to nash. he got the best punch in. i think the refs broke it up too early otherwise i think it would have a been a better fight and probably a draw. both of them are almost even in weight and height. the refs probably wanted to break up everything as soon as possible.

Posted by no123one on January 23, 2010 at 08:49 AM

HAHA, Nash beats up Backes! SWEET! Don't mess with Canada, yanks. Backes knew what he was doing long before the hit. He dropped his gloves before Nash even knew what was going on, so Nash responded with the beatdown. So the tool that said that he needs to respect the game, look again. Backes dropped the gloves almost as soon as they came out of the corner. This is a prime example of Backes head-hunting top players who don't fight (and losing).

Posted by shawn46 on January 13, 2010 at 09:48 AM

Backes is a punk....

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 13, 2010 at 08:51 PM

Backes is quickly becoming despisable, in a Fraser (Hawks) kind of way... if you know what I mean.

Posted by DARCY T on January 17, 2010 at 03:23 PM

edge nash

Posted by brazos on January 13, 2010 at 03:52 PM

I don't see all the talk about Backes going after certain skill players, that is who he is usually matched against and his abrasive style is bound to irritate them. Are they supposed to get a free pass without being checked. If they can't stand being checked stay on the bench. All of that said I would give the nod to Nash on this one. Not what you would categorize as a toe-to-toe

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 13, 2010 at 02:26 PM

haha W Nash

Posted by bruins rule on January 13, 2010 at 06:13 PM

nash gets the win in this fight.

Posted by jimmboo on January 13, 2010 at 05:46 PM

Backes is a punk!

Posted by metz87 on January 13, 2010 at 06:01 PM

Backes is a a-hole for that move. Nash should have beat the crap out of him for that. Win Nash.

Posted by stevkrause on January 13, 2010 at 02:18 PM

Nash is not normally a fighter, but handed it to Backes in this one - clear win Nash

Posted by Hagstrom on January 13, 2010 at 03:09 AM

Nash just over powered Backes and fed him a few good rights. Win Nash

Posted by crashandbang on January 13, 2010 at 02:26 PM

Nash with the win. Amerks25 you sir are an idiot! The US has two gold retard, Canada has had two streaks of five straight idiotstick! Canada has and always will own hockey stooge. And as far as the Olympics go, Canada will skate away with the gold while Team USA sucks on it again! Go back to playin basketball in the ghetto and wait for your welfare cheque to come slapdick

Posted by billy jack on January 13, 2010 at 01:49 AM

nash with the clear and easy win over the back door bandit.

Posted by MSUfaninMO on January 13, 2010 at 10:09 PM

Okay so Backes is now going after top flight players on opposing team now??? It would be nice if he won these fights easily. Well this one he lost and the other two he wasn't that impressive. WIN: NASH

Posted by crosscheck52 on January 13, 2010 at 08:11 AM

Nash won with the right hand barrage at the start. Backes didn't get going. A lot of the rights missed or hit the back of Backes's helmet, but that was far from a defensive stance from Backes, Nash forced him to duck.

Posted by GongshowTy on January 13, 2010 at 10:50 PM

2 non fighters throwin bombs, edge nash

Posted by Finnish-Flash. on January 13, 2010 at 07:21 AM

haha easy win nash, p*ssy backes lost, backes is embarrasing!!

Posted by etrain8 on January 13, 2010 at 02:59 AM

Backes has been throwing his weight around lately going after other team's top six skill players. Bit off more than he can chew this time though. Nash doesn't fight much, looks like he could give Boll a few pointers on how to punch effectively . Easy win for the CBJ captain.

Posted by zonapensfan on January 13, 2010 at 10:31 PM

Nash goes crazy big hit stood up for himself got the W...

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 13, 2010 at 03:35 PM

laughable......draw.

Posted by vangodard28 on February 13, 2011 at 09:03 PM

"Goes up high on David Backes"? More like Backes goes up high on Nash then gets his ass kicked. Nice try home panger.

Posted by amerks25 on January 13, 2010 at 10:16 AM

Cant the Nash take a hit? Why did he drop his gloves? Backes had throw a good check and Nash comes up high. I hope they fight in the gold medal game with Backes kicking his ass and the USA kicking Canadas ass just like the World Jrs. Its our game!

Posted by JoeBlue on January 18, 2010 at 02:30 AM

Nash is a punk. He is nothing but mouth and inflated ego. Got owned last year by Oshie and drops the gloves when he takes another routine hit. Man up or shut up.

Posted by fernben8 on January 13, 2010 at 07:51 AM

What's up with Backes going after talented players these days? W Nash.

Posted by Raoul Duke 708 on February 02, 2011 at 02:14 PM

Clean big hit by Backes. Backes offers to drop his visor, Nash declines (punk move). A couple of punches thrown, nothing lands, and the refs jump in. AFTER the refs are between them Nash lands a couple on Backes' helmet... how does Nash get a W? Clear Draw.

Posted by Bluesfan27 on January 17, 2010 at 04:25 PM

not bad for about 5 seconds of fighting. Nash on points. and what is with all the name calling in here. who really cares if someone is Canadian or American? Aren't we like best friends with the longest undefended border in the world? Seriously, the only difference between our countries is that we violently threw the British out, and you guys just waited till they got bored and left.

Posted by Radiotalker on January 13, 2010 at 01:13 PM

Give it to Nash, even though he got in some pu**y shots after the linesmen came in. No Code.

Posted by hammertown on January 14, 2010 at 03:51 PM

Backes is a total idiot. He fights skilled players and wears a visor in the process. Loser. He's the definition of the Ugly American. I hope Rypien gives him a new nose a removes several teeth.

Posted by chad420 on January 17, 2010 at 08:06 PM

edge crosby,stills & nash

Posted by tim daddy on January 13, 2010 at 12:07 PM

not very pretty, but nash kind of overpowers him

Posted by tomales2 on January 13, 2010 at 09:00 AM

Backes is due for a serious butt kicking. I guess after a couple of recent fights he considers himself a brawler. Wrong. Win Nash

Posted by wannago_letsgo on January 13, 2010 at 12:17 PM

amerks25, The americans beat canada in OT after blowing a 2 goal lead in the last 3 mins of the game, hardly an ass kicking, you won, take the 2nd gold in your jr. history, Canada has won 5 straight up to this year, once you pull that off then you can talk. Goodluck getting to the Gold in the olympics with rotten ronny wilson behind the bench, Kessel and Kane, thats all you have good luck. they wont get psat the russians, or swedes let alone Team Canada. Backes, a fringe fighter with one year of goal scoring under is belt lost a fight to Nash a 40+ goal scorer who is now 3-0-1 fighting. Sit down and shut your yap, if you honestly think the US has a chance at a gold with a guy like Backes on the roster, you are american, stick to football knob licker.
