Parros comes back from a terrible injury and fights Bordeleau and Reaves. Tough MFer

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 06, 2013 at 08:01 PM

Magnum shows his strength by out muscling one of the strongest players in the league But the connecting shots seemed about even... so I'm going with a technically sound draw punctuated by the "ol' slipped on my skate guard...again" "Parossian-styled" traditional exit

Posted by bfox9 on November 05, 2013 at 11:07 PM

I'm tired after just watching it. Parros out-muscled Reaves, punches were fairly even. Slight edge to Parros.

Posted by omorales on November 06, 2013 at 12:30 AM

Edge Reaves

Posted by cible on November 05, 2013 at 08:44 PM

Punches connecting on both sides in a very spirited and entertaining scrap! Parros getting back to his previous form slowly but surely againts a tough opponent and top 10 heavy in this league! Parros balance issues showing at the end, always holding our breath watching him fall to the ice since the last accident. Draw!!!!

Posted by STL13 on November 06, 2013 at 08:55 AM

So Parros goes down and Reaves connected.....why wouldn't anyone call this a win for Reaves? That's the way they normally vote it. People usually always view how the fight ends as the victor....I think it's a bunch of crap....but it happens.

Posted by mick968 on November 06, 2013 at 02:49 PM

I am Blues and Reaves fan but you got to respect and like Parros. Reaves had just given one of the Canadien D men a rough ride so response not surprising.Reaves is a load so good tilt for Parros as well.Entertaining draw in my opinion.

Posted by the kid 61 on August 27, 2014 at 04:02 PM

As i've said before, anyone who drops the mitts and stands up like a man, i have respect for. Not a big fan of Reaves but he didn't do to bad with big George.

Posted by dustyknuckles on November 11, 2013 at 06:27 PM

great go.... i gave it a draw i liked how it went back and forth both boys like to tango both boys gave a good effort...

Posted by shawnrocks on November 05, 2013 at 09:43 PM

2 great fighters.....

Posted by slavv on November 06, 2013 at 10:05 AM

Parros has certainly improved over the years, but his Bambi legs always find a way to fail him and he loses yet another one....

Posted by Orr Fourever on November 06, 2013 at 07:57 AM

Ryan with the W.

Posted by jlmcgui on March 19, 2014 at 08:32 PM

good scrap, best landing punch was Reaves' to Parros' face ... very slight edge to Reaves

Posted by hughcares on November 05, 2013 at 10:25 PM

Reaves definitely lands the better punches and takes the win. At least after his injury Parros is dropping the mits and doesn't duck guys like Thornton has done after Scott pounded him.

Posted by st. bernard on November 05, 2013 at 09:38 PM

reaves better punches

Posted by liskeywhiskey on November 05, 2013 at 11:13 PM

Decent scrap by how anybody can say Parros won outright is dreaming. I call it a draw at best with a slight edge to Reaves. Gotta love both players !!

Posted by Blues 34 on November 06, 2013 at 06:10 AM

Pretty darn good tilt, both guys got some shots in I had it a draw or edge Parros watching the game live but on second look I go draw edge Reaves he threw and landed the harder shots and Parros edge in landed shots wasn't that much

Posted by tleahey on November 06, 2013 at 09:33 AM

I thought Reaves landed the more substantial punches. It certainly wasn't a cakewalk by Reaves...and Parros held his own..but I do give Reaves the nod in a close scrap. I place more emphasis on heavier punches that pitty pat stuff and Reaves landed some big bombs in this fight.

Posted by retired2006 on November 06, 2013 at 10:41 PM

Reaves landed a few big ones, Parros some of the smaller ones. Close fight, Reaves the winner. Caught Parros with a big right after a few rabbit punches.

Posted by zoomo09 on November 06, 2013 at 09:12 PM

Two heavyweights going at it. Parros landed more, but, Reaves landed the bigger, cleaner, punches. Lucky for Parros that he was going backward and down when Reaves grazed him with that last punch. Edge Reaves.

Posted by JoeBlue on November 06, 2013 at 07:53 PM

Reaves landed more and better (actually count them people). Very close but Reaves with the edge. Could have gone longer if Parros had not tripped Hope these two go again!

Posted by tigersw00d on November 05, 2013 at 09:45 PM

Good scrap, i give it a draw, but slight edge to reaves since he seemed to get better punches in and the final takedown

Posted by Stl314 on November 06, 2013 at 07:59 AM

Parros didn't want to throw at first. Lame

Posted by rprice1981 on March 24, 2014 at 10:41 PM

If you want to scrap with Reader's you better pack a lunch cuz win or loose he will make you work for it!

Posted by ironbar44 on November 06, 2013 at 08:52 PM

PARROS with the win

Posted by brazos on November 07, 2013 at 11:54 AM

No domination by Parros but he landed more noogies than anything else. Given his experience in the league compared to Reaves, he should have done much better. Give Reaves some credit for throwing and landing some. Marginal win to Parros.

Posted by staceyb on November 05, 2013 at 09:49 PM

Le Grand Stache wins.

Posted by kimdburkland on November 06, 2013 at 10:42 AM

No real decisive punches landed-rather boring

Posted by scorp1on on November 06, 2013 at 07:23 AM

Dang, Parros is one strong SOB. Making Reeves look like a middleweight is an impressive feat. Not much damage from either side, but Parros was comfortably pushing Reeves around for a half minute before his fall, which is so common I don't even take points off for it any more.

Posted by MMA_FCF on November 05, 2013 at 10:05 PM

It is impossible not to like Parros who just does his job and is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team - even after coming back from a big time concussion. Someone else said it best, he is one tough M'Fer! That being said, too bad he plays for the Habs. Reeves is pretty damn tough as well. Good scrap, very slight edge 'Stache (less).

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on November 05, 2013 at 10:14 PM

good fight!

Posted by kimo_coyote on November 06, 2013 at 07:36 PM

Slight edge to George

Posted by mygameworn on November 05, 2013 at 08:59 PM

Atta boy George! Glad to see you landing on your ass :D

Posted by MRoberge on November 06, 2013 at 10:18 AM

Win Parros!

Posted by FDNY20192 on November 07, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Not taking anything away from Reaves...But Parros is a warrior! Bad concussion and comes back and does his thing.

Posted by SerjTankian98 on November 24, 2013 at 12:13 PM

Reaves fights someone legitimate and loses.

Posted by Jofos on November 05, 2013 at 10:56 PM

Love having parros on the team

Posted by francoisleroux on November 07, 2013 at 04:40 PM

As the moustache slowly makes it's comeback, so does it's proud wearer. Parros with the win for landing more and imposing his will on a strong dude in Reaves. Too bad the puck didn't go in before the gloves got dropped. As a tough guy, it's probably the worst when you drop the gloves, only to cost your team a great scoring chance, or even worse, a tying goal. at least he won the fight.

edge Parros

Posted by Edsmo on November 08, 2013 at 09:47 AM

Hugfest. Parros is damaged goods now. He's jammed. Habs need a new gorilla and soon because Parros and White are a couple of pantloads.

Posted by rocky 1 on November 06, 2013 at 03:31 PM

Good tilt with both landing but Reaves out pointed here by George! Reaves aint nothing special boys!

Posted by sedinfan on November 05, 2013 at 10:40 PM

Real good tilt, edge to parros in my mind. Nice to see the George of old standing in there and throwing them.

Posted by GreatMurray on November 06, 2013 at 11:42 AM

The announcer went to the Jack Edwards school of homer fight calls. Good fight...Reaves does well against a lot bigger man but he still lost a close one. Big George wins.

Posted by dkdanielkli on November 05, 2013 at 09:24 PM

Slight edge to Parros. bajo39, what does one thing has to do with another? You must be stupid.

Posted by WereNotThatHabs on November 06, 2013 at 06:01 PM

couple guys show us a thing or two about knowin a thing or two.. draw!

Posted by scooter231 on November 07, 2013 at 08:00 PM

Couple of the big boys go at it with Parros getting the edge.

Posted by bustoff on November 06, 2013 at 07:04 AM

Nice to see these two drop the gloves....

Posted by srehm1 on November 07, 2013 at 02:55 PM

Close fight. Draw.

Posted by pmann14 on November 06, 2013 at 04:20 AM

nothing special here. draw

Posted by fernben8 on November 09, 2013 at 03:08 AM

I had Parros ahead but Reaves landed 1 or 2 towards the end to earn a DRAW... I think Parros is a better fit for the Habs than Georges Laraque was a few years ago.

Posted by DARCY T on November 06, 2013 at 05:07 AM

solid heavyweight draw...reaves should fight more often.he's a beast

Posted by grrbronco81 on November 06, 2013 at 10:15 AM

Maybe a slight edge to Parros, but both fighters had their moments. I'll give it reluctantly to Parros for getting the helmet off.

Posted by Hobie_Hansen on November 06, 2013 at 04:08 PM

Parros landed more punches so he wins the fight. However, he sure is weak on his skates and doesn't ever knock anyone silly.

Posted by juddy96 on November 05, 2013 at 09:55 PM

Good scrap. Even matchup. Slight win Parros and a 7.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on November 06, 2013 at 01:26 AM

Good close scrap, but Mr P takes it. Good to see old George back.

Posted by simard3000 on November 06, 2013 at 02:52 PM

Georgie with the win.

Posted by whaleoil on November 06, 2013 at 06:45 PM

very even bout, Reaves waits for Parros to tire out. I haven't seen Reaves manhandled like that before.

Posted by Stone55555 on November 05, 2013 at 09:19 PM

Good fight! Parros wins by a close decision

Posted by pepsigenerate on November 05, 2013 at 10:55 PM

Now that was an exciting bout for these Heavyweights,both non-stop aggressive tempts by both contenders through the whole fight.Parros comes back from an accidental injury and fights two heavy contenders'Bordeleau and Reaves...Calling this one a draw!

Posted by Ratank on November 07, 2013 at 11:55 AM

Just a good draw.

Posted by Haus22 on November 06, 2013 at 11:27 AM

I'm surprised so many thought that Parros took this one. I watched the game live and didn't see it that way live nor on the replay here. Was it because he managed to stay on his feet and didn't faceplant himself?

Posted by Shoeman72 on November 08, 2013 at 02:33 AM

Great fight. Have to give it a draw. Good job by both guys

Posted by jimmat on November 06, 2013 at 08:45 PM

Going with Behn Wilson...Draw Parros landed more, Reaves lands the harder shots. Props to George for coming back and taking on to strong, tough guys. Glad he's back. Too bad about that skate guard...

Posted by chad420 on November 06, 2013 at 10:21 AM

Going draw in this decent tilt

Posted by samtheman on November 06, 2013 at 10:19 PM

Parros would be be top 3 fighters in the league if they let them take their skates off to fight. I'd call this one a draw.

Posted by TERMINATOR on November 06, 2013 at 01:19 AM

Nice shots by both. Reeves salvages a draw at the end. Reeves seemed fresher of the two at the end. draw and rated 8

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on November 06, 2013 at 09:40 PM

I'm giving this fight to Reaves. It was a dandy and George was fighting well, but I feel Reaves landed the more effective blows by far.

Posted by mff500 on November 06, 2013 at 02:00 AM

Parrots landed mostly rabbit punches, reaves landed more blows and heavier blows. Since Ferguson and Nilan retired, Canadiens wouldn't recognize a good fight if it hit them in the face !!!!

Posted by Clowes ABeast29 on November 06, 2013 at 06:44 AM

Wow great to see Georgie back to back good scraps (you know what I mean the booourrdurrleuu one was subpar) Anyway he looks reinvigorated and had a spring in his step and BETTER BALANCE AND HAS LEARNED TO PUCNH! Yeah make George's Laraque eat his words parros "parros won't intimidate anyone" After the injury he had and he's opening up like this and the 3 men he's fought this year and he's looking good and enjoying it again. Keep it up George miss you in the west Can't wait for you a frazer Mclaren to go at it like the SJ and ducks days Wi. Parros

Posted by kkdowning on November 07, 2013 at 08:58 AM

Glad Parros is OK and back. Giving Parros the win because the series of "nuggies" Parros employed reminded me of my childhood

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on November 06, 2013 at 08:51 PM

Still trying to see where parros WON???? The logo de toilet seat brigade out in full force voting for the jersey; despite the video evidence.

Posted by boldbilly on November 06, 2013 at 07:48 AM

Huge George fan.....good to see him back in action he landed a few more here but Reeves with the better shots....since this is hockey and not boxing I went with a draw....good tilt

Posted by mctuttle on November 05, 2013 at 11:41 PM

Parros got in more hits, both were tied in terms of magnitude of hard hits, Parros just hit many more light ones.

Posted by bajo39 on November 05, 2013 at 09:15 PM

Parros defies his reputation early by standing - yes, I said standing - in there and throwing quality shots only to have his instincts as a Compuboxer and his career-threatening balance conspire to end the fight his opponent's favor. The fact that he lost the fight and cost his team a goal only confirms that the Habs simply have no business in the tough business.
