Brashear jumps a kid, and wins. No surprise there. Atlanta, pitiful to begin with, now loses even more respect. Brash sucks, but the Thrashers are a bunch of candy-asses. Sad days indeed when Eric Boulton is your "enforcer."
There's nothing wrong with roughing somebody up a little bit to say, "Welcome to the NHL, kid," but this is rediculous. Jumping an 18 year old kid who isn't known for this kid of stuff and to start throwing punches when he doesn't back down is just cowardice. I highly doubt Bogasian asked Brashear if he wanted to dance.
Good job by Bogasian for not backing down and not wanting to put up with Brashear's ****. I gave the win to Bogosian, considering how much of a ***** Brashear had to be in order for the scenario to take place.
That said, this is why every team needs to have an enforcer.
Brashear wins this. I'm laughing at this, he's going after a 18 years old rookie player? Pretty dumb of him but he might try to mix it up with other team, so let's wait and see what happens the next time they play each others. Again, brashear is a moron.
Brashear, known for his sometimes inabilities to pick his spots. A pretty much good hit by Bogosian and no real harm done to anyone. Brashear's hit was a little late, but good. There must have been some words, because Brashear was egging Bogosian on. Not saying "Huggy Bear" can't hold his own, he just doesn't pick proper spots to drop'em sometimes. That's why I picked horrible for Brashear. Not that his can't fight, just poor spot picking. At least Bogosian didn't back down. Grapes would be proud. ; )
Since I am not a fan of either team I can this: Brash saw the kid hit one of his players from behind and did the job he is paid to do. He held back and did just enough to let the kid know he wasn't going to get away with that stuff in the NHL without doing any real damage.
I gave it a draw. I like Brash but HTH can anyone give him a win over that kid ? I thought Domi retired already ? That was pure Domi late in his career, going after a non-fighter. Is Brash at that point now ? Pad the record a bit. LAME !
