I'm going with Lucic for the win just because Neil was brazenly trying to pull the sweater over his head to end the fight. Everyone took the win from Thornton in his fight with Orr for doing less, so to let Neil off the hook is just hypocrisy.
Gentlemen, please do not mention those two retards anymore. It's exactly what they want. As I said a couple of weeks ago. Stop giving them recognition and they'll dry up and blow away. A lot of non connections in this one. But a few got in there. I have to say draw. Maybe a slight edge to Neil. Neil's a strong cagey guy. Lucic is a young Turk. Give Milan a couple more years in the league and he'll be scary.
ok i know i'm a new member and all but i have to say this....i've been bleeding black and gold since ray borque's first yr....i've been a diehard b's fan for yrs...that being said, this was a draw straight up...both landed a few shots and neil showed good restraint and sportsmanship when he jersey'ed lucic...he could've pounded the crap out of him and didn't so he gets a thumbs up from me....
p.s. to b's fans: don't worry or fret about these habs fans and their hating...their just pissed cuz their club sucks this yr...they're used to dominating us and this yr we've handed their asses to them in every aspect of the game...it's ok habs fans , better luck next yr
Good fight, Neil came out strong, but Lucic stepped up, close fight edge to Neil, he seemed to hurt Lucic near the beginning, but Lucic responded very well. I'm a Bruins fan and a Lucic fan but I think Neil won by the slightest of margins. I'd like to know who the "real heavyweights "are if Chris Neil isn't one. Besides being able to fight ,both these guys can play the game as well, which is , of course, more important.
As far as Lucic hating goes, I don't get it. He's a great body checker, can fight well, and is NHL level in both zones, and he's only 20 yrs. old.
I'll enjoy watching him in the years to come
Great fight, I would say it was a draw. I really hope they don't try to ban this type of fight from the game. Good job on Neil's part for trying to get his team going, but love how Lucic is there to stand up for his.
Neil had lucic's jersey over his head and could have unleashed on him but chose to stop throwing punches. That shows a lot of class. Up till that point it was pretty even but that tipped the scale in Neils favor.
see. proves my point. lucic's still 3 incehs taller and 8 incehs heaveir, as well as a good few years younger, but FINALLY facing a heavyweight, cant demolish him like he does to every other puny non fighter he decides to beat up upon. not saying lucic cant beat heavies, jsut saying he's lacked the balls and class to so far, and hes going to have to go against a couple more before that will changem y mind.
good back and forth battle tho. solid draw.
