Great fight. Who needs heavyweights who practice boxing everyday when you've got a guy like Fisher who's willing to just throw and throw and throw. That was a real old school fight, it looked straight out of the days when Gillies and O'Reilly patrolled the ice, who cares about grappling and positioning, just stand front on and swing like a madman.
Great fight, Fisher standing up for gerber and pounding him out rather quickly at the beginning. Then decided it was time for the fight to be over and gets a headbutt and a loose tooth for his trouble.
i dont see why people are automatically assuming walker meant to run into gerber. it looked to me like gerber was standing outside of the goal, where he didnt need to be, walker wasnt expecting him to be there, and he just happened to run into him. it didnt look like he hit him very hard either. everyone assumes the goalie is so defenseless. walker did not deserve to be attacked for merely bumping into gerber. granted, the headbutt was uncalled for, but had fisher not attacked him in the first place, walker wouldnt have headbutted him. regardless, walker still clearly won the fight.
One of the best fights I've seen this season. Slight nod to Fisher for cutting Walker and landing a couple of better shots. Plus, Walker's headbutt at the end was completely class-less. I thought he was a more upstanding guy than that.
Fisher had control of the fight, but gave it a draw. Fisher threw nicely, because of the visor, take off points. Fisher, rightly so defending his goalie, was instigating fisticuffs and had the opportunity to remove his visor. He didn't and Walker ate a lot of visor. Don't condone running the goalie or the head butt, especially the head butt. But I can't condemn him for it when his opponent is hiding behind a visor like that. Nice fight by Fischer, but it a draw by DQ.
Will every1 pls shut up about the visors....at an instance of a fight u not thinkin take my helmet off...your thinking get the 1st punch in. If both agree on fight and square off thats different. ANyway, grt fight, think a draw or slight edge to Walker(tough s.o.b.) when he was with Nashville. Run the GK and head-butt...tasteless but good viewing...give the guy a break, don;t complain about that stuff on hockeyfights.com. Barnaby took a head-butt in his early days from a guy twice the size as Walker....he didn't comlain.
What game were you all watching?
I was at the game and have to tell besides the uncalled headbutt fisher got rocked several times and his knees even buckled, I dont think I need to even go in height or weight difference Fisher had over Walker and still got the job done.
Leave it to some ******* to defend Fisher for fighting with a visor. If you want to do that kind of ****, you deserved to get head butted. Kudos to Walker for doing it. Should've done it twice. Kind of curious about some of these ***** who continuously make up some ****en excuse for these twatly tough guys. It's pretty couragiuos to trade punches when you know you're not going to get hit. What happened to the rule on instigating with a visor?
