reminds me of the old days. How long since the havlat-recchi incident?
as my 5 winners
disagree on hartnell-ruu (wash, maybe even ruu winning for the takedown).
carkner-o'donnell should probably be a no-decision, as the fight didnt really happen.
Always good to watch this after watching these videos.
You don't get points for takedowns. It's a ***** move to get yourself out of a fight, and a great way to end someone's career. If anything, takedowns should be discouraged.
Hartnell??? Are you kidding me? That is either a draw or Ruutu.
Ruutu only landed like 3 punches.
I'll give it a wash since Hartnell had a visor on, but no win for Ruutu
Neil landed some nice shots on Shelley early in that fight, the size disadvantage came into play as it went on though, props to Neil for stepping up and fighting him none the less.
Bettman is not going to like this.
Props to Neil for actually fighting a heavyweight FOR ONCE. ****ing ***** that Neil is.
Those Ottawa announcers are a couple of babies. Potvin is one of the worst in the business.
Neil has fought Engelland, Chara, Orr, and Shelley this year. He fought Godard, Rupp, and Lucic last season.
Call me a homer, but I disagree. I see it...
No contest (Carkner/O'Donnell)
If you're going to rip on anyone, it should be at Shelley for turning down Carkner, a man his own size, only to scrap with a middleweight like Neil a few minutes later.
Ok, you're a homer.
Look at the crowd. He loves it.
He wanted Neil, because Neil is the one that jumped Giroux after a clean hit, that started all this crap.
Now that is how a blow out game should end!!!! Props for Carter and Giroux dropping them. Gained my respect even though Carter should have dropped the lid. Shelly finally won a fight. Odonnell needs to stop fighting.
i remember the year of the lockout they were replaying some flyers games and the ottowa philly brawl game was replayed twice and actually got higher rated as a replay. bettmans ******ed if he cracks down, this is the stuff true rivalrys are made of and nothing draws ratings like rivals
Please. Winchester won that fight hands down, despite his foe being the mighty Visor Boy. And Hartnell did land a decent shot at the beginning, but most of his punches hit Ruutu's helmet. Ruutu landed a couple of shots late and had the takedown as well. What's that, Hartnell was wearing a visor as well? For shame. As a guy who drops the mitts from time to time, he should be shedding his bucket whenever he fights.
Yeah, you're a homer.
Hartnell KO'd and still won?
I thought I was the Philly homer
