wow. I hate Neil but he absolutely earned alot of respect from everybody for this. He manned up fought the best heavyweight, took his best punches and even landed a bomb at the end. Obviously a win for brash, but neil must have earned a ton of respect around the league for this.
he stayed up because half the 14 (in total punches from brash) didn't connect or hit him on the back of the shoulder...he did take a few nice hits tho....And how everyone calls a win for Orr as i have too...against a flurry of Belaks punches and calls this a loss for Neil is beyond me..the winner is who is standing at the end...not who threw more..If mike Tyson beat the **** out of a guy for 11 rounds then gets knocked out in the 12th..it doesn't go to decision.,..he loses..just like in a hockeyfight but you usually have about 30 seconds to determine the win...not 12 rounds..Neil standing over Brash on the ground..WIN NEIL Same with the Orr fight..he ended it and he won...maybe some of you hypocrites mght want to check your voting privelige at the door if you can't be consistant
Saw the game live. Brashear was challenged many times by McGrattan and Brash walked away!!!! Then after a clean hit by Neil on Backstrom, Brash wanted Neil. Neil is Ottawas middle weight... McGrats is the heavyweight. I like Brash but was very dissapointed he wallked away from two strong attempts by McGrats. Congrats McGrats for doing your job, shame on you Brash for not tangling with the heavyweight.
Brashear with Philly could never get this punk to go, so better late than never as a Capital. Brashie doesn't even have his guard up because every time he's challenged Neil, he's never answered the bell. Now, we know why. That was a down right pummeling that brought the biggest smile to my face. Phuck, this just made my week. By the way, didn't see the challenge by "Glass Joe" McGratten. Probably did him a favor. To Sensenforcer: "To all you Neil haters, phuck you all" should be "To all you Sens haters, phuck you all". That's not nice or very sports-man-like. But this is: "To all you Sens, Neil, McGratts,etc fans, EAT A DICK!"
neil took the punches,brashear takes one punch and goes down,if you cant take a punch you dont win,even thiough i hate neil brash didnt hurt him but he dropped brash,once brash gets hit he goes down or hugs,.
