A friend asked me to keep an open mind about Carcillo this year,
so, this time out, I was hoping to see more of the
''Tocchett-like'', Phoenix version, as opposed to the...
''I'm going to try to grow a mustache
in an attempt to channel Dave Schultz'' version
that showed up in Philly.
Unfortunately, neither showed up,
as Reaves took full advantage of Carcillo's continuous fumbling
for a decent jersey grip, and as a result...soundly, pounded him to the ice.
I was, originally, going to say, that this fight seemed to mark Reaves' emergence as a legitimate, heavyweight contender...
but then, I caught the spear-fish, intro.
Hmmm....Probably influenced by the announcers but I found myself cheering for Carcillo.
You can tell Carcillo was cautious of Reaves's right and was trying to get a good grip, but not able to.
I didn't think it was really a 'spear', more of push away with the stick.
Ryan just too powerful, no contest.
This was a Scott job.
@mudman55 Reaves is a bitch, he wasn't so quick to drop em when John Scott challenged him, was he? Yeah, take on the little guy but when a real heavy gets in your face you skate away with your mouthpiece hanging out thankful that the linesmen saved your ass.
