Happy2, O'Byrne had him by the sweater and was hammering him in the face. At that point, it's pretty well on, gloves on or off.
Lister100, did you watch the Bogosian-Brashear fight? He didn't exactly defend himself well, or at all. The announcers were calling for someone to jump in to rescue him. They fell before the kid got hurt.
O'Byrne wanted to fight, and his options were Thorburn, Boulton or the rookie. He made his choice. Bogosian made an effort, but he's a bit small and inexperienced right now. We'll see if O'Byrne is still in the league in a couple of years, when Bogosian fills out a little more.
I hope he feels like a big tough guy after beating up an 18 year old. Did anyone see him turn down Boulton??? He knew who he wanted to fight and it wasn't going to be anyone who could throw a punch and hurt his pretty face. Typical Habs player!!
Bogosian wins it by a landslide, right mcb??? not one of O'Byrne's punches land proven by the fact that you can clearly see not one mark on Bobosian's face after the fight. Are things getting a little tight for all you Monteal fans?? Looks like you all will soon be out of playoff contention. Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!
Bogosian ask for it... Clear win O'Byrne. Look closer you will find out that Bogosian drop the glove first and ask for the fight, he probably thinks that he had better chances than against Brashear since O'Byrne is not a fighter like most Montreal players, except maybe Stewart.
