I can just see the fun comments coming on Ewasko and Jorde.


And Segal.


what a happen to ewasko the last few months of the season? oh by the way dupont hospital has wifi and both wife and baby are sleeping....so its not that bad


Congrats IcyKomet!!!! Name?

When I use your rankings to arrange a bracket system I come out with Jorde, Legault, Mallette, and Henley in the final four...

Woods isn't a heavyweight, but a VERY powerful smaller guy, and he takes some strong punches. If I was ranking...



Segal actually tried to go after someone bigger (Legault) yes he got his clock cleaned, but I give him an "A" for effort.


#1 King-Kong HENLEY= he has beaten them all!!! also DeBus maybe a top 10??

Justin Cohn

Too funny. A bracket. I love it. But did you give Woods a first-round bye or something? How did Snowball and Jorde both make it to the finals?

Mrs. Mightbite

Mrs.Mightbite: didn't Bootland beat up Woods?


mightbite, unless something went down at practice, I am pretty sure Henley has never dropped 'em with Bertram.




Ok Greg, I'll agree with ya on that one. Segal is in a three way tie with Legualt and Woods,shows some guts.


that article might have caused more harm than good. i can see it as locker room fodder.

Justin Cohn

Yeah, how's that? Oh, Cohn saw me as only No. 8, so I'm going to kick the Komets' butts?


If Cornish would of played in the I the entire season, he would be in the top 2.

We haven't seen too much of Snowball this season, he had a hugging match w/ Henley, that's about it.

Neil Clark has 2 fights in tonight's game against PH. He's gotta move ahead of Jorde.


Justin, where's the article on Hodgman?? Curious to what he thinks of the league.

Justin Cohn

Haven't gotten to him soon. Make him earn it more before I bequeath the honor. kidding, kidding.

I didn't give a bye, I added a 16 seed so I had an even number. I put Tuzzilio in at 16, not because he deserved it, but because I'd love to see him take a beating.

I dislike Ryan Jorde more than anyone, but when the guy decides he wants to fight (which isn't often) he can throw some knuckles. Snowball is also a solid fighter. If Henley's knee were healthy, this whole list would be nonsense. I think his injury has a huge effect on his ability to fight. It's hard to throw haymakers when you can't get properly planted.

I can see Woodsy carrying the JG into the lockerroom before practice and pointing out the article. I think Legault might differ with the opinion that Woods is a higher ranked fighter than him. I'm just pleased that we have 3-4 guys that can argue about it on our team.

Justin Cohn

I still don't understand your bracket then. Unless my eyes deceive, you would have had Jorde and Legault in the first round, so how could they be 2, 3. And how could you have Jorde winning? Oh, I forgot, he's the toughest guy in the UHL.


Very good article on fighting in the leauge this year.

I like the idea of players having a greater role in policing the ice like the old days.

I am pertty happy with this product other than the inconsistancy of the officiating.
