Glass early, Asham late. Solid draw.
Greetings to all and it feels good to be back... Good fight. Very close on the score card. Will call it a Draw. Looked like Asham is still a little out of shape (easy for me to say from behind the laptop ), though Glass looked quite good and throwing them nicely.
Pretty nice one, but Glass got off a good flurry at the very beginning and kind of buckled Asham, so I give the fight to Tanner. Kudos to both of them for getting it on at the drop of the puck.
Good middleweight fight.
Super Good fight both landed a lot of punches. Got to hand it to asham for getting up from one knee and taking punches off balance to come back and give to to glass.
Glass won that fight, no question
I've never been much of a Glass fan but he acquitted himself well in this one. Good spirited draw.
Who is Tanner Glass? Asham is one of my favorites, however this kid (Glass) looked pissed. Asham looked good in the middle of bout. Giving this a draw.
I call it a dead even draw. I will agree with some posts that Asham wasnt at the sharpest for this fight but a great way to start the season for both.
Glass tried to jump Asham but didn't quite succeed. Asham needed that tilt to get tuned up for Wednesday against the Bruins MVP Greg Campbell and his Daddys Referees.
Hard! Like an erection denting the side of your car.
Great fight, two of my favourite players in the conference these two. Glass taking Asham's spot in Pitt, and Asham taking Prust's for NYR, I think we'll be seeing a rematch of this one somewhere down the line. I score it a draw with props to both guys for putting on a good one. Bravo!
Spirited to say the least, which is more than you can say about the Rangers last night. With the drop of the puck Asham has now officially played for all five Atlantic Division teams, though he came up in the Canadiens organization--good journeyman player, tough as nails.
.02 seconds?! what took so long? Islanders/Lightning had 2 fights at .01 second. DRAW.
Good way to get it out of their system.
Arron Asham is a heavyweight in a middleweight's body. Never backing down from even the game's toughest pugilist's. Can actually play the game too and is all heart, as well. This clearly was a draw, but make no mistake that 'A.A.' will win much more scraps than he ever loses.
Solid draw. Hopefully they go again this year.
Good hard working blue color fight
Lots of spirit -- Glass goes to town early -- Asham stays with it to the end. Scoring it a draw though if I had to pick one, it would likely be Glass for the early flurry.
gave this a draw
Great fight, somone called this a boring draw. If this was boring, i would hate to see how you rate most of the actual boring ones. Have to call it a draw with two guys going toe to toe like that.
Pretty close, I think Asham got a few more in.
This was a good one between two evenly matched fighters. Glass early and Asham late for a draw.
Great fight. Lucky for both, some big misses.
thought Glass would have been destroyed...gave it a draw
Good tilt with both giving and taking shots. Draw.
Good action. Draw
Nice evenly matched scrap. No clear winner but a decent fight.
Best fight of the opening weekend IMO. Very even with good blows landed by both sides. I'm calling it a draw
Good long fight - not alot of direct hits - these guys didn't want the fight to end anytime soon
Great tilt boys!!!! Love the tap at the end by both combatants:) I would call this a draw and I'm a huge Pens fan, love Arron Asham, wish he was still in the Burgh. Calling it a draw and an 8.
Not sure who won, but what I will say is Asham is the ugliest player in the NHL.
Great to see Smash'em always showing up somewhere in the East. Here he's taking on his last team. Glass doesn't allow the distinctive Smashem pose to begin the fight and goes to town early. Smashem battles back with some jawbreakers but Glass holds on and keeps it from being decisive. A fine knock of the knuckles if I must say so.
Solid draw... Asham started out with the Habs, so i've always hated him, but i would love the guy if he wore the spoked "B"... impressed by Glass though. Good fight
Draw. Glass definately had the advantage early on, but Asham evened things out in the middle. Good bout.
Very entertaining bout by two very tough customers not afraid to throw with both hands. Glass early, Asham late. Solid draw.
Draw. Good Fight. Possibly slight edge to Asham. Both landed good punches and neither wanted to quit.
That was some anger in those punches. Always good to see. Draw
Great fight good distance solid punches all around great match
Yea glass got of a good flurry in the begginging however asham came back after that and I think landed for punches... Good scrap!
Draw. Glass early then Arron Asham late. Pretty good scrap
Good fight very close. I'm a Rangers fan so tough to call for me..gave it a draw
These two rarely disappoint
Middle Weights huh? id love to know what makes the weight classes. people say Shawn Thornton is a heavyweight when he himself is only like 205 lol. either way this was a great fight, not many punches landed tho thank god for their faces
Asham didn't get set early. I think he'll kill glass next time
Clear concise win for Asham
Asham don't really know who the hell was watching with Asham losing?
winner is Asham - no doubt
asham with a good right at the 20-21 second mark and at the 39-40 sec mark, Asham being more the aggressive one..tanner throwing some but uneffective
Both did well. Edge Asham....
High vote may have to do with this being the 2nd game of the season for these teams, but as a Ranger fan I was definitely entertained by this one.
Great middleweight bout and we'll probably get to see this again a couple of times this season. The "w" goes to Asham though in a real close decision
A killer scrap, Montreal had Asham as a rookie, only to piss him away. I give Arron the victory, and Tanner is decently tough, I forsee another exchang in the future.
real good fight between two midleweights. Lots of punches. Asham gets the slight edge
At regular speed it looked like Asham was connecting, at super slo mo only one or two landed while Glass had several that landed flush. good scrap but a Win for Glass. Can't see why anyone would vote for Asham most if not all of his punches hit Glass on the upper arm or on the back of his shoulder. At regular speed Asham is firing away and it looks good but it really didn't do much.Glass would turn his head and the ones that got over his shoulder did not connect with any force.
glass kicks his ass
extremely slight edge to glass. EXTREMELY.
Def a Glass win there. Great that hockey is back. Sid the Kid looks a little rusty!
Nice showing for Glass because Ash is a bad man. There will be many more of these.
Glass slight win.
Asham is a tough gritty guy, and an ok fighter, for Glass to keep up with him was impressive. I think Glass got more connects in the beginning. Almost a draw, but an ever so slight edge to Glass.
Let me say I have been a Double A fan forever.... wherever he was (even Philthy)... and not a Glass fan at all... but I got to give this one to Glass... from the first crumple till the end.. good tilt!
Glass got him early. Not much happenned late. Slight edge to TG.
Gotta give it to Glass by the slightest of margins- had a strong grip on Asham for the first minute or so. Lots of haymakers (most missed), and respect at the end. And I'm glad to be back to read the rants and raves- I've missed them, and it has been way too long.
GLASS by a slight edge,landed heavy early .ASHAM nice come back .comes up just short
Glass barley. Not like Asham at all
i know that glass is tough but im surprised anyway how easily he won vs asham this time
Spirited long bout. Credit to both, edge to glass
Pretty sweet fight. Enjoyed Asham in PIT and was sorry to see him go, but I think Glass got the better of him here, even with Asham's late rally. Solid punches landed, but I don't think anyone got hurt...they kept the energy going until the end and wrapped it up with a respectful tap on the noggin.
glass with the edge. great fight!!!
A draw or slight edge to Glass... he definitely pummeled him early, but seemed to get a little tired. Good fight!
good all round fight but i think Glass just takes it for me.
That was a beauty....... Give Glass the slight win.
Good fight...slight edge to Glase.
I won't be a homer I say....glass the extra couple of punches landed...think he surprised our newest protector. Great fight.
Holy wow!! This has a chance to be the best fight of the year. What a scrap. Until I saw the replay, I marked it a draw, after seeing Glass on top in the beginning, I gave the edge to him. Glass wins... Barely.
Was sad to see Asham leave the Pens in the off season and found it hard to root against him here. Glass does better than in their last dustup for sure but got to go with a solid draw. Great fight and nice to see the mutual respect.
Draw and a nice, long scrap.
Good middleweight scrap here. Both landed some quality shots. I can't pick a winner here. Draw and a very solid 7 from me. Glass got introduced to the Pens/Rangers rivalery early on in this one against a guy who used to be on the other side of it.
Draw -- that is the way it is done -- respect for one another after the fight was over (better than what Asham did after he crushed Jay Beagle)
Great fight, good sportsmanship.... Very surprised the helmets didn't come off at the start. Draw all the way.... I see CustomBrokeback now excited to invite his new enforcer Kassian up to the tent for some quality alone time... You go girl!
Glass early but Asham came on late in a spirited draw.
Good fight Tanner was on him early but Asham got some good shots in at the end I'll say a draw
that's how you do it boys!
Asham landed the better and harder blows.
Never thought id be voting for asham nor root for him but since hes in blue ill respect it.
Love to see these guys start the game off with a bang...
Hats off to both guys in this one. Giving Glass the slight edge here, but would certainly rather have Asham on my team if I got to pick one of them.
good bout...traded some good shots toward the end of the fight.
Draw....nice preview of the newcomer Glass. Asham held his own though...
Giving it a draw, Glass had a good showing there, tough customer.
About the only way your going to see Asham fight a penguin this year is glass good fight though
Not bad...couple good shots exchanged but nothing to decide a winner either way....draw.
Love A.A. but you gotta land to win! Early edge by Glass not relinquished in an evenly matched tilt.
...I can see where the linesmen are gonna' be the main focus of all the fights once, again --- this one sucked, anyway -- just, a crappy draw,...
Great fight, with glass killing it in the beginning and asham coming back strong at the end.
Asham is washed up if he can't beat up this ex-Canuck.
