This bout was only the 2nd for Simon this year. I don't know what's up with him, he's not what he used to be. I remember when he was a Ranger for a portion of a season and he was an animal for us (fighting everyone like a madman.) Why has putting on the isles jersey make him such a wuss. I guess he wants to regain his scoring touch. OH, I GET IT... HE DOESN'T HAVE TO FIGHT NOWADAYS SINCE THE ISLES HAVE SUCH A DOMINANT ENFORCER IN "TIM JACKMAN." (hahahahaha) And as for the fight Winner=Orr... Do the math he's the only one who was actually throwing them. And about that stick... I think Simon just kept it close by, this way he can pick it up and swing it at Orr's head while he's in the middle of taking a beating from my man Colton (the best, most aggresive, and most entertaining fighter in the league.) PERIOD
I'm down with Tuff Guy.
Simon slipped, that doesn't count as some TKO or that Orr " dropped him". Just be fair when looking at these fights. Don't have some man crush on these guys.
Simon has definitely proven his toughness over the years, and I love Orr's guts too. But this was a nothing fight that could have been a doozy. Too bad.
Simon slipped because he had bombs flying at his head. he's not so tough when its one on one. Orr made him pay for suckering him three times when Witt the wuss and Comrie held him earlier in the game. Say what you want about Orr but when he fights he goes for the kill. Any isle fan that thinks Simon slipped on his stick is an idiot. He doesn't touch the stick until he hits the ice. The next to last punch by Orr caught Simon right on the kisser.
Simon's not so tough unless his opponent is held by two other guys (or swinging his stick). Orr landed three good ones. I'll give you that he slipped on something. The once tough-guy Simon, is starting to look like a chump with his bush antics including his sucker punches on a tied up Orr. For those who didn't see, Orr gets a slightly late hit on Comrie, Witt and Comrie tie up Orr against the boards and Simon skates in and throws three punches.....Orr is a top 10 NHL pugilist.
Some here are such homers.... Orr schooled him LOL
Simon was lucky he slipped LOL
I am neither a Ranger nor an Islander fan so I am not biased like some of you tools.
Simon slipped on a stick and was trading with Orr... The SLIGHT edge goes to Orr but in no way is it a schooling.
As for the patsies that say Simon is not as tough without a stick, he has been doing this for over 10 years and was once known as a top 3 fighter in the NHL.
Can Orr claim that ?? Do not think so panzies
totally agree with dubie and tuff_guy. simon is one of the best fighters in the league and itz crazy how the rangers ppl talk a whole bunch of trash after simon slips and falls. so i tell u wut..take away that stick and see wut woulda happened to orr. hopefully he gets his in the near future cuz simon definitely doesnt play
