I'm surprised Hollweg doesn't play for the Flyers. That was a dirty and pointless hit, he should have went after Kovy if he wanted revenge. I can't believe garbage like him still plays in the NHL. Anyway, the fight, Orr is too big for Bouillon but Bouillon stayed on his feet and didn't go down. Orr still gets the win but that tiny little Bouillon gets respect from me.
It's all about sticking up for your teammates here. I'm sure both guys felt that's what they were doing. No surprise that Orr dominated. I wonder how many guys who say Bouillon doesn't deserve credit for going with a guy with Orr's size and skill would have those kind of guts.
Decision to Orr, but with a few caveats. 1) He does this much more often than Bouilly so this shouldn't have even been a contest. 2) Francis is exactly the same height and weight as me (if you go by the NHL.com listings) and let's just say if I saw Colton Orr coming toward my side of the rink I'd probably play dead. So props to Frank B.
Got to give Bouillon credit for taking on Orr. He lost, but it was close. Bouillon got some really good punches in at the end. NBC has GOT to get their heads out of their rear ends and show the dang fight. Then they can worry about the penalty and the replays.
On one hand, Bouillon shows some heart taking on the larger and more dangerous Orr. On the other hand, guys who fight while wearing a shield have a big equalizer so here, I don't strongly consider the size and fighting skill mismatch. Orr with the easy win but out of Bouillons league.
orr wins. battleaxe13, hollweg is definatly NOT garbage! yea it was a dirty hit, no question. hollweg is one of the most energetic players on the rangers and he is a great physical presence. a garbage player is someone like chris simon who should be in jail right now for whacking hollweg in the face with his stick and trying to cut off ruutu's foot!
