Ah the story of Ben "the ultimate coward" Eager. He runs and hides from Georges Laraque all yeat then one day sees the mighty BGL turn his head away and Eager strikes him with an elbow. Laraque spins Eager while on his back and then pummels him. But the cowardly Eager turtles and hides like a kid afraid of monsters. So the smoke clears and the Legend known as Gary Roberts challenges the coward, this time the coward accepts and gets an old school beating.
What's more embarrasing, the Pens losing 8-2 or Ben Eager losing to a grandfather and having highlights of it all over Sports Center? WWGRD? He would kick a young punks @$$!
The old man give this guy a lesson. Eager better try a younger player like 12 or so. Roberts at 41 made Eager look very bad. Way to go Gary. Nice cheap elbow Eagar. Nothing better than a cowardly cheap shot artist getting his head handed to him.
I love my Flyers but my God, can they please get a real fighter on this team! Cote and Eager are not it folks! If 41 year old Roberts lays a beating like this on Eager than Ben should be thankful the Larauqe did not fight him. George would have killed him.
you know everyone gets on Eager's case because of the elbow...but guess what... Laraque has his elbow up when eager comes in too. So its a double egded sword.
Eager gets his ass kicked. thats all there is to say about that. I don't like him at all. I say send him back down.
man I love to see older guys like Roberts go at it. He's still got the fire. Took this one the whole way. Eager may have been fairly dominant in the minors, but he rarely wins up with the big timers. ROBERTS
Roberts can to fight again.
Eager looked like always missing of his own.
A good uppercut by Eager in the end, but missed it badly.
Roberts landed some sharp, effective punches.
I think a nice bout, where Roberts was a clear winner.
Eager was too much of a little girl to fight Laraque after giving him an elbow. Eager got away with it so Gary had something to say about it. The mitts were thrown down and Roberts started swinging away at Eager just about dominating this fight. And Roberts is plenty older than Eager, I wonder how it feels to get beaten up by a senior citizen. Sir Gary Roberts wins the bout easily.
